Ruthie Foster comes to town as August winds down
Thanks to Michael G. Stewart for the beautiful foto.
A couple of years ago I was on a Columbia Artist Management tour with Robben Ford, Ruthie Foster et al and Ruthie and I talked about having her come and perform at the Fur Peace Station in scenic Darwin, Ohio. Well, it took a couple of years but she finally made the trip and she play two in incredibly powerful and moving sets to a completely sold out house. Ruthie is beyond spectacular in every sense of the word. See and hear her if you get a chance… anywhere!!!!!!!
Earlier this summer, good old fun loving Hot Tuna did a little run with our good friend Jill Sobule. Jill has a guitar primer of her songs out, and since I realized that I want to be just like her when I grow up, here I am… working on it.

My son Zach has been with us for the last three weeks and as the end of his summer vacation approaches, yesterday I drove him back to his home in Virginia. Well, actually he drove me. He’s got his permit now and well… freedom is just down the road, hand in hand with responsibility. Here’s a shot from the passenger seat somewhere in West Virginia.
Good times here… but better on down the road.
