It’s the last gasp of summer here in Southeast Ohio. Very hot and very muggy but fall weather is right around the corner. Before heading over to Lake Snowden and the PawPaw Festival Maverick and I walked down our very own Blues Highway here at the Fur Peace Ranch.

Myron came over to pick up the gear and caught me riding Izze’s Monkey.

Once I got this out of my system I loaded my guitar into my Jeep and drove over to Carpenter to pick up John Hurlbut to take him over to Lake Snowden with me for the 2021 PawPaw Festival. It was nice to see live people here at home. I had an hour to play and I wanted to deal John in for at least half of that.

I almost never get to play in my own home town so this was a real pleasure, and truly a good time was had by all! Next weekend I’ll bet at the Ryman Auditorium opening for my dear friend Tommy Emmanuel. Then I’ve got a string of dates winding up at Levon Helm’s Studio, but more on that later.
In the meantime stay well and enjoy the retreating summer!
