Pete Huttlinger & Geoff Achison

The start of a great weekend

The start of a great weekend

This past weekend we hosted Pete Huttlinger and Geoff Achison at the second weekend of the fifteenth year of the good old Fur Peace Ranch.

The classes were fabulous and Saturday night the show was Geoff Achison and Randall Bramblett. Teddy, the bass player got stuck in Atlanta at Hartsfield Airport so the boys along with their drummer presented a trio show that was, well… absolutely fantastic! Hard to beat perfection.

It was so great to see and hear Pete after his illness… He is quite a guy, a great musician and wonderful human being. Geoff has been with us at the Ranch from day one fifteen years ago and it is always wonderful to see and hear him. Now a little bit of time at home with the family. Life is indeed… good!

    Just ordered the Beacon DVD as well – I had a great time at that Saturday show, and felt so lucky to be able to drop in on the birthday celebration backstage and deliver my greetings and best wishes in person! Not to mention sat behind the Hurl during the concert – it was almost like being back at the Ranch

    It certainly is a hot stage, FP Station forefront the hottest.
    At the times Jorma asked for names to be given to the newly built auditorium within the FPR zone, just as a reflection I thought that the ww famous ‘La Scala’ was adequate for the unique excellency of the mainstream running there, after BBQ King in black & white I can’t think other than the ‘Old Vic’, this great video makes us live the wonderful experience of contemplating Jorma Kaukonen as never before, no one of the great Shakespearian interpreters can reach the intensity we perceive watching Jorma ‘dueting’ with either Jack or Barry.
    Jorma is more!
    Thanks Jorma for allowin’ and sharin’ these wonders!

    So happy to hear that Pete is up and about and doing much better. I met him at the Ranch in 2008 and was as impressed by his humility and friendliness as his incredible virtuosity. He really is a great guy.

    I sure am glad to hear Pete was back at the Ranch with a workshop…He was at the Ranch one weekend when I was there taking Miss Marjorie’s workshop, and, yeh, a wonderful human being pretty well sums it up.

    Enjoy the family time!!

    Randall Bramblett! Wish I was down there this past weekend…the two Bramblett numbers on Pair a Dice Found are exceptional and are a direction of their own in the Hot Tuna repertoire…they occasioned my purchase of every Randall Bramblett CD I could find…on another note, it was great to be back at FPR for the first weekend – just like going home :-)…til next time…
