Memorial Weekend at Lake Burton, Georgia.

What a great weekend. Friday was Sugarmill Creek with a packed campground and lots of friends. Saturday was at LaPrades and there were a lot of kids who were crazy about Beatles songs. They danced almost all night and a fabulous time was had by everyone. Friends also came from as far away as Seneca, South Carolina. There also appeared to be a fair number of Alabama supporters at LaPrades. Could it be because their coach has recently built house on the lake?

I played my old Gretsch and had forgotten what a superb instrument it is. I'll have to do this more often.

I'll be back at both Sugarmill and LaPrades the last weekend in July and the first few weeks in August. Can't wait.....

Southern Hospitality, Clarkesville, Georgia.

Many thanks to Kathy Nicholson and her staff at Southern Hospitality for putting in such a long day on the videos. I think we accomplished a lot. We should have five videos ready to go in a few weeks. The songs featured from the Canyon Road album include Canyon Road, the Tin Star Saloon, and This Guitar.
Tomorrow I hope to see you all at Sugarmill Creek, Laurel Lodge Road, near lake Burton.

Tomorrow we will be recording some videos for use on the internet. I'm very pleased to have Kathy Nicholson directing. Kathy has her own cooking show here in Georgia, plus she is a great vocalist. Next week I head out to DeSoto, Texas and Ruffino Restaurant.I have made many friends there and always look forward to seeing them again.
I wish everyone a safe Memorial Day weekend..

Blackberry Winter.

This past weekend I performed Friday at Sugarmill Creek and Saturday at LaPrades. Both nights were quite cool and both venues had wood fires. I think this is what is called a Blackberry Winter. I spent Sunday at the lake and lit a fire there too.
Today I booked June, 12th on the Plaza in Taos. This is one of the summer concert series that occurs almost every Thursday evening through the summer. The St. James in Cimarron is booked for June, 6th.

First night at LaPrades.

What a nice place this is!!! It was really busy, with a bunch of appreciative people. The temperature was very pleasant and the view of the lake... spectacular. I will be back for the next two Saturdays. Come and join me on May, 17th and 24th.

After Memorial weekend, my annual "Rocky Mountain Summer Tour" begins. The first stop is in deSoto, Texas, then on to New Mexico and Colorado.

The Westcliffe Feed Store Pub and Grill.

I have just added the Feed Store Pub and Grill in Westcliffe, Colorado to my list of September engagements. The date is Saturday, September, 13th. Concert time will probably be 3:00PM - 6:00PM. The venue is a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre. If you can make this date, I hope you'll attend. I never been to Westcliffe but everyone tells me it's a beautiful town. See you there...

A perfect day

I was at Sugarmill on Friday and the weather was ideal. Saturday rained a little, but Sunday was the perfect day. It was around 70deg. and I was looking forward to getting out on the lake. There were actually kids swimming and I would have thought the water would have been too cold, but apparently not. This is the best time of year here in northeast Georgia. Everything is so green. I have several more weeks to enjoy it before going on the summer tour.
