  • Kaki King at Turning Point Cafe

    Last night we saw Kaki King at Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, NY. On October 24, 2007, we saw Kathy Mattea at Joe’s Pub in NYC. Accompanying her that night on guitar, as he has been for roughly 18 years, was Bill Cooley. When I reviewed that show I stated that I thought […]

  • Tim O’Brien at Joe’s Pub

    Last night we went to see Tim O’Brien perform at Joe’s Pub. Before I get to the show, I need to correct one (possible) mis-statement in yesterday’s long post about Kathy Mattea. Near the end of that post, I said the following: Kathy is playing at the Barns again tonight. Ironically, weโ€™re headed […]

  • Kathy Mattea at Wolftrap

    Last night we saw Kathy Mattea for the second time on her Coal tour (that’s the name of her new CD). The previous time was at Joe’s Pub on October 24th, 2007 covered in this post. We both thoroughly enjoyed that show, as you can see for yourself if you clicked on that […]

  • Girlyman at Wolftrap

    Last night finally came, thankfully! We’ve been waiting (not so patiently!) since November 4th, 2007 to see Girlyman live again. That’s 143 days, in a row (if you can believe that). Somehow, we survived, but I’m not sure how! Continuing with the new tradition, I’ll cover the concert first, then circle back and […]

  • Dave Mason at Blend

    Last night we saw Dave Mason play at Blend in Ridgewood, NJ. Some things about last night were perfect, others far from it. Since I acquiesced to Lois when similar problems occurred at Canal Room in NYC (covered in this post), I’ll do it again, and cover the music (the perfect part!) first, […]

  • Bill Cooley Now More Accessible

    I am very happy to announce that Bill Cooley now has a MySpace page. I have raved about Bill ever since seeing him live with Kathy Mattea at Joe’s Pub. The only problem was that spreading the word about how great this guy is was difficult, because his CDs weren’t as easy to […]

  • Phil Keaggy Beyond Nature

    In this post, I mentioned that I intended to buy Beyond Nature and Freehand – Acoustic Sketches II by Phil Keaggy. Then, in this post, I explained how I was going to get it, namely, in a bundle from philkeaggy.com (including a repeat of Acoustic Sketches, which I had previously purchased as a […]

  • Acoustic Guitar Update

    This is another long post, so bail now, while you can, or grab a cup of coffee (to keep you awake). ๐Ÿ˜‰ Actually, the post itself isn’t insanely long, but if you watch each of the videos that I’ve linked it, the entire trip will take a while… I’ve gone on and on […]

  • Phil Keaggy CD Arrives

    On October 25th, 2007, I posted my impressions from the night before’s Kathy Mattea concert at Joe’s Pub. In that post, I highlighted my amazement at Bill Cooley’s guitar playing, stating that he was possibly the best acoustic guitar player I had ever heard. That led to a comment by Eric Sink that […]

  • Bill Cooley CDs

    In this post about Kathy Mattea at Joe’s Pub, I mentioned that I thought that Bill Cooley was possibly the best acoustic guitarist I have ever heard. I’m glad I said possibly, because only four days later, I saw California Guitar Trio at BB King, and as my post on that concert attests, […]
