Thankfully, the “Polar Vortex” left us. Now that we’re back to “regular winter,” it’s time to go see some music. Last night we had Dark Star Orchestra at the Barrymore Theatre in Madison WI. DSO brings out the hippies and the smell of cannabis was in the air! There’s nothing quite like the way Deadhead chicks dance. Makes for a fun night! Here’s “Scarlet Begonias” from a show last July.
I saw and got to meet Jackson Browne last June at Steel Bridge Songfest in Sturgeon Bay WI. Jackson is part-owner of the Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay. For a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer he’s a pretty down-to-earth guy. And unlike many performers, his voice is still the same. When he did “Doctor My Eyes” I closed my eyes and went back 40 years!! Here’s one from a couple years ago with Crosby, Stills & Nash at Madison Square Garden.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to pay tribute to Folk music and civil rights icon Pete Seeger who passed away Monday at the age of 94. You’ll probably see a lot of replays of Pete with Bruce Springsteen at President Obama’s Inauguration. I picked out this clip of Pete with “The Man in Black” on Johnny’s TV show in 1970. This is classic – Enjoy!
This was live in Germany in 1980. It makes sense today for a couple reasons. Just felt like putting it out there. Keep warm people. Much love and respect.
Eric McFadden Trio playing at the Zitzmark in Girdwood, Alaska, July 2012. I promised another terrific guitar player and here he is. I’ve seen Eric perform several times. He’s another one of those people that if you ever hear that he’s around, make sure you go see him! For more, check out his website http://www.ericmcfadden.com/
I’m going to finish out this week with 2 amazing guitar players you may never have heard of. I first saw Kenny Wayne Shepherd when he was 19. I first saw Jonny Lang when he was 16. I first saw Tallan Noble Latz when he was 10 years old!! He blew me away then and he still does. Here’s a taste of what T-Man can do.
Here’s Victoria Vox performing an original song, “Jessica.” I’m committed to featuring more of the fantastic female singer/songwriters I’ve seen. Victoria Vox is a talented artist from Los Angeles that I’ve seen perform at past Steel Bridge Songfests. I think you’ll like her, too.
