Pickin’ In The Windy City

Getting in from Meigs County, night before last

Getting in from Meigs County, night before last

Well, this little run has begun. We got into Chicago night before last. Sort of rainy, and for me… being from Southeast Ohio… a little unSpringlike.

Welcome to the Daily News Building

We headed down to the Daily News Building where I was to do an interview on Rivet Radio with Ron Litke.

I played a bunch of songs and chewed the fat with Ron… then back to the hotel and off to the City Winery, Chicago.

This part of the run is solo acoustic, but I’ve got some electric shows coming up so I was checking out my new Myron Hart Conversion/Fender Jazzmaster getting ready for the Wanee show. The Louis Electric Princetone sure likes my guitars, and I like it!

OK… gotta get ready for tonight’s show.

    Jorma,
    Penny and I are really looking forward to hearing you @ SOH on Sunday evening. I’ve been a avid fan for many years (I’ve been on my own finger picking and flat picking journey since 1972). Not that I’ve been at this pickin a while, but I have your instructional tape and I think it is an 8-track! We have great seats in the front row of the balcony. See you Sunday – safe travels.
    Chuck

    The rain is in the mid-west and also here in nyc and the north-east states today. Jorma keep it going where he is play his show. It’s been a long cold, lonely winter– you got to scrape that snow right off your shoe!

    I give the Rolling Stones credit for the part of my comment it refer to their song “Sweet Virginia”.
    All of the great start in the 1960’s and thanks goodness Jorma is still here.

    @scott radcliffe
    oooh, Trial by Fire – I just got shivers. Hamar Promenade is one I always want to hear. I look at a lot of Jorma’s play lists and unfortunately that song is conspicuously absent.

    By the way, I’ll see your Hamar Promenade and Trial by Fire, and raise you a Third Week in the Chelsea.

    Jorma – your new Jazzmaster looks an awful lot like the guitar Pops Staples is playing on the cover of his new record “Don’t Lose This” (his last recordings spiced up by his daughter Mavis and Jeff Tweedy). Pops had a distinct sound, just as you do – look forward to hearing you play it, hopefully in Portchester!
