Yowza! I haven't gotten my Pickathon tickets yet! Man, I hope they're not sold out. There's a great line-up again this year....and after playing that trio of tunes from previous Pickathon festivals this morning I've really got myself psyched to be there. Of course, before that is this week's Blues Festival. Maybe I'll throw (gently) my kayak up on my car, pop down to the river, and listen from the water this year....
Hey, I hope you liked that GREAT long piece sung by Jackson Browne. Woody Guthrie wrote some amazing words in this one--I wonder if he meant for them to ever be turned into lyrics? What a wonderful love song... If you pick up the CD that this song is on, Note of Hope, you'll see the full lyrics in the liner notes. It's worth it just for that!
Oh and you heard a set of music this morning touching on the theme of this week's celebration of Independence Day. The first song in the set, brand new by Ali Marcus, includes lyrics ripped from the front page of the paper. She's a terrific songwriter....and will be in Portland tomorrow night (Tuesday, the 3rd) at a concert in the garden of the local Youth Hostel. It's a free one--and sounds like fun. Maybe I'll see you there! NW Portland Hostel Summer Music Series, 425 NW 18th, 6pm.
Enjoy your Independence Day and keep your dial at KBOO--your INDEPENDENT community radio station!
