Martin D-17 Mahogany

Sometimes, just like with horses, the "Right" guitar finds you.  The Martin D-17 Mahogany happens to be that guitar for me.  I love the way it looks, sounds, feels . . . . It made the journey from Montana to Wyoming just in time for the fair and has been a joy to get to know.  I had it set up with a little lighter action and strings at Music Villa before they shipped it out to me.  It has a warm, softer sound, not very punchy, which I don't need but I think I'll go one gauge heavier on the strings next time I change them to get a little more depth on the high end.  I love it.  I truly do.  I'll post some video of us playing with it later this fall.  I'm excited to hear how it records.

If You Give a Kid a Camera

That kid will take pictures of the band.  Good thing he did, it's our only proof that we were there :-)  We had a great time at the fair, our next show is a wedding, so if you're invited, we are too and will see you there.  Then the Utah State Fair is coming up for Me and Cal, September 9th.

Listening to Charlie Jenkins it dawned on me that I made a mistake in my last post about his involvement in The Voice.  It was actually "Nashville Star".  My apologies guys!  Great show tonight.

Street Dance Thursday

Now that I've had my share of great musicians, friends and even a Knight in Shining Armor or two it's time to get back to playing.  Thursday night the Lincoln County Fair is hosting a street dance in the Civic Center Parking lot.  Admission is free, it's open to all public and we'll be raffling off some great prizes.  The Linford Band is playing along with Charlie Jenkins, yet another musician from the reality show THE VOICE.  Don't miss it!  (And don't forget the free entertainment under the Big Top all week!)

Concert Night!

 What a fun Fair we're having so far and it's only Monday!  Tonight was the concert in the arena and a great band from Utah, LOKALGROWN, opened for Gwen Sebastian.  It's such a small world and three of the band members are friends of mine.  I was so excited to see my beautiful friend Dawn perform.  We go way back (Sun Valley Carolers, early 2000's, many hours spent in the sauna on the slopes and singing . . . . . love her guts!)  Windstorm/Rain/Dustbowl weather be danged, the show must go on, and it did!

After Lokalgrown, my boy was stoked to have won a raffle item and we'll be going out for pizza as a family thanks to his big win;-)
The concert was awesome.  Gwen's Band was fantastic and were such nice people.  I loved this photo of my boy and Gwen the most.  She took time to meet every single person and autograph their items and take pictures.  What a fun end to a long day at the Lincoln County Fair.
