June 30th “Search Light Shine”

I’m finally back home for a day.  It’s been several weeks since I’ve had a “day off”.   Of course that means my day off is not playing golf at Reem’s Creek, it’s playing catch up recording songs for my 365 songs blog.   I’ve still been writing every day, I just haven’t been able to record for three days.

I did some cool things though, aside from the daily work, I saw Phish in Raleigh which was awesome, then I played a show in Sylva last night at their downtown amphi-theatre.   We played the best we’ve played with the new line up.  It was a blast.

Thanks for listening!

May 30 “Love Rockets Over the Red Sea”

Our show at Pinehurst last night turned out to be a blast.  We had some issues getting there and getting home but we made it safe and sound at least.   Playing wedding gigs is always a lot of fun because it’s such a joyous occasion.   I played mandolin on about ten songs which I haven’t done in years.   Pinewild Country Club looked pretty nice and I’ve heard that it’s a good track as well.

Today’s song  is based on an old song I wrote when I was a governer’s page in Raleigh one week back in high school.  I remember spending most of my time reading Frank Zappa’s autobiography.
