    Great pictures Jorma. You get to see so much of America when your out on the road and through your photos we get to see it also. See you at the Ranch on the 21st.

    These photos are very good and fun to look at. Some look like the movie set.

    Those are some lucky folks who got to see those two solo shows, Jorma. I think I’ve only gotten to see you solo twice in the “recent” since I don’t know when. With Robben Ford at BB Kings in NY, and at FPR 2010. It’s a real treat to be able to hear the uninterrupted picking patterns. I remember Hurl saying “that was symphonic”, describing your performance at the ranch.
    The barn must have been a hoot. I love the photos of the backstage decorations. Very cool. I’ve been listening to some of the concerts on You Tube, one from Skippers Smokehouse in Ft. Lauderdale, where you & Barry are going instrumental in all the songs. I love it. Barry is playing your vocal parts where you would be singing. Awesome, meditative listening.
    Thank you for being you.

    What an awesome set – if this is gonna be the set you’ll be playing this time around – I gotta get myself a ticket. After the Beacon in December, I’m starting to get Hot Tuna withdrawals.

    glad you got to enjoy the AllGood Cafe and the Deep Ellum neighborhood. I had not made the connection with Blind Lemon Jefferson and the Jefferson Airplane before this. Blind Lemon walked the streets of Deep Ellum, along with Leadbelly, T-Bone Walker and others, before he recorded in Chicago.

    Hello johno!
    I was thinking what is Dosey Doe? The photo is a nice place to see Jorma but I want to know more.
    I called my friend and she explained to me it is a dance of Americana. Then I ask what is Americana? I can ask her dozens of question every day she always explains to me the answers. She will be back on Monday and in the restaurant she will show us the Dosey Doe dance. SWING YOUR PARTNER!@johno

    @Joey Hudoklin
    Just for the record, Skippers Smokehouse is in Tampa. Great place, very homey, if ya ever get to the West coast of FL check out the old “Skipperdome”.

    I didn’t know what Dosey Doe was – so I’m glad Jim did. I might take a road trip to see your FPR magnet. Is it still there?

    My earliest music exposure was to the National Barn Dance show on WLS out of Chicago. That and Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline and most all of the 50’s honky tonk you could put on a jukebox. Mix all of that together with the Everly Brothers and Rickie Nelson. Old misty memories still shining in my heart. We would go to live dances too. I can still hear the laughter as we danced trying to listen to the caller so we didn’t screw up. Although that was part of the fun too.

    It is on the espresso machine. For all to see but only we know what it is. This is called “the visible inside joke”.
    The restaurant is small and the Russian people are there only with reservations for 20-40 people in each group for each side of the restaurant. We push the tables together. We have one small table in the back for the employee meal without tablecloth. Monday is sometimes only slow day and my friend comes in to sit with us there. That is the only time you hear English speaking. The cash register is next to the espresso machine in the back.@johno

    So you’re a newbie. You got to go and see them soon! I must’ve seen them 200 times already everywhere from Florida to Chicago to New York. They are amazing!

    You want to know what/who Americana is, Andriy?

    You are. You come to this weird and wonderful country (and by country I mean it’s concept, not it’s borders), and one way or another you up ck up on this fine music. Do you know how cool that is? 🙂

    March 1st, 2015 at 12:56 | #20

    Meant ‘pick’, not ‘ck’, darnit.

    And, Chuck Newman, I cannot let your wonderful post go by without saying ‘yes!’

  22. andriy
    March 1st, 2015 at 13:53 | #22

    Yes, thanks. It is good times for sure for me. “pick up” means to learn. Jorma plays with the finger picks. Have choices? Take your pick!@jim hitchcock

    March 1st, 2015 at 13:59 | #23

    I say another “yes!” to wonderful comment. I will learn more about it tomorrow to understand it better. We will learn the dance and have fun.@charles newman

    You are lucky to see this many concerts. I will go some day. Before that time I enjoy all of this here. Thanks to every person talk with me and I learn more English all the time with you. It is snowing again here in Brooklyn now.@johno

    March 1st, 2015 at 16:29 | #26

    Thanks again. I go out for break now it is still snowing!
    Last week there was snow. It snowed again the next day. It is snowing again today. It will snow again tomorrow. That is from English lesson about past tense, present tense, and the future tense. I can not remember these things but I try sometimes.@johno
