I am listening to an old recording...trio with Dane and Ilios from l997 at the Rivoli. I am quite enjoying it. I think it was at the end of a Canadian tour we did where we drove across and back in my mini-van....oh, those were the days. I truly miss that. It is such an adventure.
Anyways, I am looking for (and found) a version of a tune from that tour callled Moosamin Eh?
I am going to play a duet gig of banjo and cello (yes I am playing the banjo) with Andrew Downing on August August 23 at the Red Guitar. This is one of our potential tunes.
Ilios and Dane sound great...not really sure why I ever broke up that group...I seem to keep changing things to keep them interesting.
It is quite interesting hearing an old show like this. I think if I knew now what I knew then I wouldn't have had the guts to put on and pull off a show like that. Youth is so exciting. I need to gain back some of that bravado (or whatever it is) When I talk in the mic I sound like I am really sure that this is great.
Anyways...for those who haven't seen or heard from me in a while, I have been practising banjo in my basement. It is so much fun. I think I have practised more in the last week than in the last year combined...funny.
Played a bit of bluegrass with Rob tonight (he was on guitar) I am not sure how much I will go down that road. It seems like it would take a lifetime to be a serious bluegrass player. Maybe that willl be my retirment plan (haha) I can play local bluegrass gigs for grocery money till I drop...hmmm....
