Amanda Ball’s Art Show with music by Allie and Bill Peden

Amanda Ball is an amazing artist and probably the genuinely nicest person you’ll ever meet. I’m not great at describing art but a here are a few words and adjectives that come to mind; folky, ephemeral, nostalgic, found objects, rustic. Her art is something you would see on the walls of the imaginary, perfect, mountain cabin you have in your mind. You can contact her or see more pictures of her art here.

I was supposed to play a few songs at this show but backed out because I have been sick all week…wah.

Bill Peden and his sister Allie were not sick and entertained us with their music. It was tops. You’ll hear them in the video but I still need to say, that 1940’s Martin guitar was perfect for Bill’s bluesy crooning and it’s always a pleasure to here Allie sing, her vocal control always gets me, it’s so perfect.

Aaron Roche played a song on my porch

Aaron Roche stopped by my house tonight to borrow a guitar. Then he played a few songs for Mike Odmark, Amanda Ball and me. He’s one of the most talented people I know and this cell phone video doesn’t do him much justice.

McClain And The Bear

One day there was this bear. He eats People. He probably ate at least 20 before he met us. We were walking to Nashville from New York, and the Bear jumped out with a bib on thinking he could just eat us on the spot. I hit him in the nose until he cried. Lindsay kicked him in the shins, and after he gave up we asked him for his guitar. He gave it to me. I play that guitar live now. You should see it. There are scratch marks on it and everything. It also says BEAR on the back.

Is this blogging?
