I keep hearing from my friends who I don’t see during this pandemic, ‘At least it must be great having all this time on your hands.’ I’ve never been home and had less time and I don’t know quite how that happened. The Quarantine Concert Series has had me practicing guitar in a way I haven’t done for decades. Playing gigs is not the same as practicing. I remember the great Steve James coming to the Fur Peace Ranch after eight weeks touring Europe. ‘My show is great,’ he said. ‘My chops are shot.’ I know exactly what he meant. This respite from the road has given me an opportunity to work on both my show and my chops, and I’m grateful for that.
Well, it’s Father’s Day weekend and although we didn’t really factor this into the decision, I’m glad to have a weekend off when it looks like the weather might be beautiful. We’re getting ready to host Jack Casady but we’ll still have time for ourselves. That said, I’m already feeling withdrawals from The Series and I’m really looking forward to getting back in saddle.
This Saturday the 20th, we have the last electric Hot Tuna show of last year for your perusal!

Got to get back to work on some tunes Jack and I will be unearthing!
