Fall River and the battleship Massachusetts

Last might Barry and I pulled into Fall River for another show at the Narrows Center For The Arts.

As always greeted by the great battleship Massachusetts… and the folks at the Narrows Center.

I miss my friend.

A bittersweet moment but a lovely evening at the Narrows.

    Hi- The show at the Narrows was my first time seeing Jorma! I started fingerpicking about 5 years ago and I love his playing. I’ve been listening to him for the last few years and had HIGH expectations for the show. Seeing them live was even better than I expected – I was blown away by his and Barry’s playing- beautiful!. I’m traveling from Boston down to Leesburg, VA for that show and going to see them again at the Bull Run in MA. I’m trying to make up for lost time…haha.
    Jorma and Barry – thanks for a great show.

    Just an awesome evening of music…from Whining Boy Blues to Water Song!! Thanks for having me as a guest. The Narrows Center makes a fantastic venue for Acoustic Jorma and Barry. An old textile mill with squeaky floors turned into an art gallery and music hall. Great job with the “Reverb”, Myron…Ain’t in no Hurry and In My Dreams were perfect.
