Friends around Seattle, please join us for our best show yet this Sunday at the Tractor Tavern, 6PM doors open, 7PM music starts. We had a great rehearsal yesterday and we’re excited for Sunday. We’ll be there early to set up and hang out before the show, stop by and say hi!
I’m performing a show with Phil Hirschi (cello) at Hattie’s Hat in Ballard, Seattle, Sunday October 26 at 8PM. We’ll also have a full band backing us up, including an upright bass, mandolin, saw, and drums.
Hattie’s Hat is a great listening room, we’re going to have a super fun night!
Whenever I come to Seattle, I have to make my way over to Bop Street Records in Ballard and spend some time digging through their record collection for lost and forgotten musical treasures. I used to work in a record store and I feel very much at home in pretty much all of them.
It’s always the same types of people in these shops, if you’ve seen the movie High Fidelity, then you know what I’m talking about. For me it’s just as much about the passion of music and talking about it with the employees whilst listening to some classic Motown record over the in-store speakers as it is about the smile I get when I flip through to a record that I know a friend will love so much and I have to get it for them.
I am such a music geek, it really should be embarrassing. Fortunately, I don’t really have the good sense to get embarrassed about much of anything. If you ever run into me somewhere, beware, if you start talking about classic records, you might not be able to get me to shut up about them.
I added a couple of treats to my collection on this visit, I’ll let you know how they sound.
