I just finished a magical week of tracking at Blue Rock Studios
in Wimberly TX. I am humbled, inspired and motivated by the high-level heartfelt music making here. Billy Crockett is at the helm brewing up an inspiring musical gumbo featuring ingredients from Daran DeShazo on guitar, Dony Wynn on drums, and Glenn Fukunaga on bass. Tentatively titled “Next Time Around” after a song I wrote with Kevin Faherty and Donna DeStefano inspired by the Carousel of Happiness. More soon!

A little story of Kerrville Folk Festival campfire magic. -Tracy Grammer has generously given us an unrecorded Dave Carter song for the new CD. (yeah – I am a lucky guy) Last weekend, learning it with a small circle of friends around KFF, Gary said, I’ve heard that song, Dave & Tracy sang it at my house, I recorded it, and here it is on my iPod, would you like to listen?? (!!) Well, yes I would very much like to listen. And there was Dave with a 10 minute intro about Al Greirson, for whom the song was written. While we discussed what Dave meant in the lyric and wished Dave were there to ask, who walks out of the dark and into our small circle but Andrew Calhoun, the one guy (other than Tracy) we would want to ask. Dave still seems to connect us through the music.
