#19 In The Can… So To Speak, And Onward

A lush August morning on the old road!

We just concluded our first weekend here at the Fur Peace Ranch. That is indeed our first session this year. I’m not going to bore everyone with Covid-19 details, prerequisites and regulations. There are out lot out there and there is no doubt in my mind that there is a potential dark side if those of us who deal with the public on any level fail to take care. OK, that said Pat Donohue came down from Minnesota and graced us with his august presence for this opening weekend. Big thanks are in order for for the students who braved travel in the outside world to come to Meigs County. With the ultimate safety of our guests in mind, we started with only five people for the two instructors and it looks like that’s the way it’s going to have to be at least for the rest of this year, presuming there is a rest of the year. Anyway, we found ourselves having a great time in spite of everything and we were able to give you all another Quarantine Concert, as we will this coming weekend.

    Thank you again, Jorma. I’ve been a fan of your music for more than forty years, and yet I have found myself rediscovering it these recent months.

    Well, lookin’ like we’re in the crosshairs down here. NHC has Laura drawing a bead on my county. It’s still early, but still scary. Rita ripped us 15 years ago in September. Don’t know where I’m goin’, yet, but damn. The destruction from these things is devastating. Went over two weeks in ‘05 with no electricity save 2 5600W generators I had to swap out every 12 hours. 100 degrees with 1 small 110 window unit and a couple of fans. That’ll never happen no more. We may tear our asses to the mountains for a couple weeks.

    Great photo!
    Thanks so much for these Quarantine Concerts. The setlists keep getting better and better each week. Thanks for playing “Stainless Cymbal”. One of my new favorites.

    In my thoughts and prayers Carey and every one
    Cathy Richardson sings several new songs co-written by Ms Slick on new Jefferson Starship Album Mother of the Sun. There is also a cover of Mr K’s Embryonic Journey. I myself am pleased with what I hear.
    Thanks again for the shows. Carry the fire into the heart of the darkness. Peace✌🏻️❤️Love All Ways🔥🚲🌹🙏🏻🖖🏼

    I really enjoyed #19. I finally decided to pick up my guitar and jam along where possible – given my limited abilities. Lots of fun! I don’t know why I waited until now to try. It’s really nice when the camera stays on the fretting hand long enough for me to get the pattern. 😉

    I’m looking forward to visiting the ranch after the Covid smoke clears. Keep up the amazing work!

    Peace to all!

    The concerts are a welcome respite from world of COVID, politics, storms, and the sad violence that is taking place in Wisconsin and elsewhere. Your shows remain the anchor of our week. Thank you!

    Looks bad. We’re in Pearland, TX. Little to no effects here. I don’t know what’s going to happen at home. My son and his family are hunkered down at my house in Silsbee. They’ll be safe and are provisioned. My son has a tree business, so he’s staying for the work that will be available after it’s gone. They’re talking coastal waters pushed 30 to 40 miles inland. I’m about 50, but good elevation. The region is going to be devastated. I hope the forests aren’t flattened too badly. A house can be rebuilt in months. Forests take a generation or more. If it goes 30 or 40 miles east from the forecast track we’ll be spared the severe intensity. And so it begins…

    Best of luck @careygeorgas Down in Jupiter I have spent many an evening glued to the forecast track.The waiting is the hardest part.Again, the best to you and your family

    Praise be! The eye of the storm went about 40 miles east of the forecast track, and that was the difference between high wind and destructive wind. Not a shingle gone from the roof, not a tree lost on the property. No electricity, but that can be managed. Thankful doesn’t begin to describe my attitude. Be mindful of our neighbors in Louisiana. They got slammed.

    This is admittedly a bit off topic. I’ve never really been much of a Talking Heads fan. (I understand the attraction but never dug them myself.) But I decided to give Chris Frantz’s new memoir a read. Not bad. But there it is, on p. 213, a passing reference to one Jorma Kaukonen.

    I was fortunate to play some harp with with Karl at the FPR a few years back. He is a fine musician and a kind soul.

    I hope to do it again someday.

    A suggestion to everyone out there doing what they can to help their local small businesses survive: If you’re lucky enough to live near a record store, the remaining ones are facing really tough times so if you can do anything at all to support one it helps keep music alive.

    And you never know what might turn up. I was unaware of the CD “Sweeping Up the Spotlight” – put together from two Airplane shows at the Fillmore East in November 1969. I would defer to Jorma on this – I tend to think that someone who played in the band knows better than I do – but if you never saw the Airplane live, this is the disc I’d recommend.

    I read that you have cancelled all dates for the remainder of this year . Am I correct to assume that the two dates at the Blue Grotto in Monmouth County New Jersey are not included in the cancellation ?

    I purchased tickets for the Blue Grotto second show a few days ago.Seems to been added because of the other canceled shows. Not many 2 seat tables available. As of now I hope to be in the house.

    I hope so Joe but with this warped governor that we have here in New Jersey we cannot be sure. The 21st will be my 65th birthday so it will be a special show for me.

  23. August 28th, 2020 at 18:47 | #23

    As of the time of this writing… it’s still on and I’m counting on it.
