Hi, for anyone in the Southern Vancouver Island area I will be sharing the bill with the wonderful Sue Decker at the fabled Duncan Showroom (http://www.showroomproductions.ca) on April 28th, 2016. Sue and I are also the featured act at the Coffeehouse on Gabriola Island on April 29th. I will be playing quite a bit of weissenborn, as well as dobro and a bit of pedal steel, and you can count on Sue playing lots of dobro and lap slide as well. Sue is then going on to do a show at Char's Landing in Port Alberni on the 30th. Feel free to message me for details or you can find the details on Sue's website: suedecker.com
Check out this tasty version of the Lead Belly classic, Goodnight Irene by Englishman Martin Harley which was released last Fall on his CD 'Live At Southern Ground.' it's just Martin on a weissie and vocals with superb bassist Daniel Kimbro who I have seen play a couple times as a sometime member of the Jerry Douglas Band. The CD was recorded in Nashville.
Interesting capo, has some of the properties of the Shubb resonator capo, looks kind of home made.
I've been playing a lot of Weissenborn guitar lately, messing around and trying to dial in my live performance rig. Here's a little ditty that I came up with while experimenting with an Electro Harmonix Freeze pedal, using it as a drone and using a Neunaber Stereo Wet reverb to give me a good ambient tone. I wanted to share this with my friends here. Please give a look/listen and let me know what you think.
