MONDAY AUG 12 2019 – Well, it was a long weekend. For me, it started last Thursday night when I emceed a show at the Levitt Pavilion featuring Andy Thomas’s Lost Walks, and headliner Slim Cessna’s Auto Club. Then it was onto Bohemian Nights at New West Fest for my 15th season on the Mountain Ave stage.
To say that the music swirls around and through me is an understatement. What I did manage to glean from the long weekend is that acts like Slim Cessna’s Auto Club (who also performed at Bohemian Nights) are actively working on new releases for later this year and early in 2020.
This coming weekend, I will host and perform at Well-O-Rama in Wellington CO, the first of what I hope will be another continuing series of shows I’m involved with. The show lineup includes Leslie Tom, GOATZ!, The Devil’s Share, Sugar Britches and Jackie & the Racket. 11AM – 6PM / FREE / FAMILY FUN
KBUT / Crested Butte aired an hour of the show on Sunday Aug 11. If you’re a part of that scene, pls let them know you would like them to air both hours, in rotation.
I’m not a picture taking kinda person .. but I snapped this one at Bohemian Nights at New West Fest on Sunday at 12:45PM during Head for the Hills set.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
One of the exceptional sets displayed this weekend at Bohemian Nights was the Sunday afternoon opening set by Head for the Hills. I’ve known this band since they began, roughly twelve years ago now. Originally, and primarily, a progressive bluegrass band, they have morphed into something other – part funky rhythm and blues, tied to their more traditional underpinnings laid on top of Americana folk and bluegrass. This video represents their more introspective folkier side.
