"...an irreducible love for the fullest dimensions of the art." "Take Your Time is ample demonstration that no matter how long you work at it, the guitar and the blues contain depths that just keep opening up. And that's what you get this time out: the added luster, warmth, and degree of exposition that comes only of toil, discretion, long familiarity..."

Hi: I've got some special dates in June I'd like you to know about.
2:00 Sunday, June 12 Mike Barry and I return to the Santa Ana Zoo for a couple of acoustic sets al fresco. A perfect time and place to bring out the whole family, and it costs nothing to park, and nothing to get in. Bring a picnic basket and blanket and enjoy an afternoon of blues. Zoo admission separate, refreshments available. 2:00-4:00, Prentice Park, 1801 E. Chestnut Ave, Santa Ana 92701, (714) 542-9650.

Save The Date! Saturday, June 18. Noted guitarist and songwriter Dave Widow has asked us to join him once again in concert at the Warner Grand Annex in San Pedro for a double-barrelled blues show. Last year was sold out! Mike and I will open with a set of acoustic blues, followed by the highly-praised Widow and his all-star band. Don't be surprised if there's a no-holds-barred jam as a finale. Details coming soon.
