Saturday was a beautiful day to play at Flint Hill Farm for one of their open house/farm days. And, it being April, I got to play in a no-fly zone – still a little cool for the buggers. I had the noon to two set for Dave Reiber’s Godfrey’s gang, so I chose to set up in a nice alcove on a ramp heading up to a barn. Great acoustics and a wagon of manure right next to me. Perfect.
Families drifted by, with folks of all ages stopping by a few tunes. I got the kids up to jam, with sun glasses and instruments and it was a whole lot of fun. Irish guy came up before his set in the big barn, and we jammed with his bouhdran and my mandolin on my Voodoo Chile. Culture shock. Nice to play outside again. Thunderstorm and rain for the weekend’s Earth Day though.
Not many gigs this month, and an all time low for school gigs this far into the spring. something’s up (or down, in this case).
