Right Now tonight Billy Strings is the opening act
Playing A Solo show
I'm thinking of going to hang around a stage door
to see if I can hear or get in.
The thing is it has been the worst weather of the winter
The ice and snow wouldn't you know.
It is clear & cold tonight the parking lot will be blighted
It is never well lighted
The piles from yesterday's ice rain and snowfall,
Will all be pushed to where I'd hoped to hang out
in my big red sled
a glorified golf cart, it has heat
but I'LL be there standing out.
standing outside in the freezing lot
where the very elegant
mercedes SUV driving well-to-do will sneer
I don't play an instrument
The tour bus will have the prime spot by the door
so far
It is Billy Strings . . .
the opening act for " I'm With Her"
The $60 ticket price is a come-on to the Beer tasting
the least attractive of the reasons to go.
Tomorrow And a 2-hour drive a $15 show is not in the cards
think of me warmly please
I'LL need the good vibes...

I don't know my Luthiers, but I'll bet that What William Apostol, "Billy Strings" just chose to play is fine

This was filmed from the back, behind where I sat
There are only 341 seats ! in the orchestra, 500 seat theater.

I was happy, felt I pushed my luck as far as it was worth, catching the opening; SEEING BILLY STRINGS
PLAY SOLO, was enough

I'll be looking for you, Perry! Very cool that your guitars will be used in that workshop! I'm not signing up for anything, just there to jam (thursday through sunday), and hence won't be in any of the workshops.

The weather forecast is sketchy, seems to change about every half hour, but you should be fine if you stick to the main roads.

Safe travels!

I've been absolutely loving traditional fiddle tunes lately, and slamming down (in my kitchen, on my laptop) a usually very hasty recording of the ones I like as I learn them. I lay down several tracks, usually of guitar, bass, mando and banjo. Here's "Liza Jane," done between client calls today:

Molly has some health challenges
Not so much Selling out as selling up
Growing up
grabbing out at life
Grasping the golden ring
Grabbing it when she had to (I & many have watched her grow up)
Still, it is hard to see[Click to View YouTube Video]

Since ST is coming to a close on the first of June, I wanted to reach out one more time to see if anyone on ST plays bluegrass in the Seattle area. If so, you can reach me at: "tompatterson 45 (at) comcast (dot) net" if you'd like to get together and jam (and meeting up in a climbing area would be a double bonus).

I'd love it!

Great videos, Gnome. I was taking lessons from Molly’s dad until I moved to Montana 6 weeks ago. I got to see the Tuttles w/ AJ Lee and Blue Summit quite a few times, plus a few workshops with Molly. Molly, AJ and Sully are all amazing musicians.
