Folks, Hope all is well with everyone this week. We’ve had much needed rain and all is looking beautiful in Santa Fe this week. I’m heading out early the morning to the Kerrville Folk festival outside of San Antonio Texas, for sadly, another memorial concert for a fallen comrade and most dear friend, Segle Fry. Segle was, along with Bonnie and I, an original performer on the 1972 Festival. In addition, he was a fierce of our music and became a mentor and father figure to us over 40 years. He was also a friend to many of us early Austin Texas pickers, such as Rusty Weir, Steven Fromholz, Jerry Jeff Walker, and many others, until his passing on Jan 5th due to massive heart failure. I’m, honored to be invited to his memorial celebration at the festival, and many thanks to Dalis Allen, producer, for making it possible for me to be there. I missed his party in Austin at his beloved venue, Saxon Pub in January. It’s true, when you’re young you attend weddings, when you’re old like me, 66 years, you attend funerals and memorials. Anyway, we’ll have a good time and I’ll a few of Segle’s favorite songs, such as, Creole Bell, Make Me a Pallet On Your Floor, Piney Wood Hills, and a classic country medley, plus see some dear friends, hopefully, if USAir cooperates, I’ll be back Tue for our regular La Fiesta date. As I mentioned, Mystic Lizard, my buddy Bob Goldstein’s, Bluegrass band will cover for me on Monday, don’t miss them, and yes, you can dance to their music for sure. My new replacement hearing aid is being made and will be ready in a couple of weeks. I’ll be able to hear you and converse with you folks much better now that I will have matched set that work in tandem. Sorry I won’t have it for the ABQ Folk festival, but will do the best I can. Looking forward to that event on June 6th at 4:30PM on the Mt Taylor Stage. Got to run and get ready for another night at the Sagebrush Inn. We had a fantastic Friday, last night, and looking forward to another in a few hours. Be careful this weekend and we’ll look to see you very soo, and as always, thanks for your support and friendship.
