Interesting pick.

she did say it spoke to her



 



this would be my second guess approve



 



 



 





chuckv97 - Posted - 07/26/2016:  14:48:51


youtu.be/LaVbicYiNXo     Must have been this song....

I believe listening to Gordon Lightfoot sing that, she would have many more yards spun than 7000 yards

DeanT - Posted - 07/26/2016:  18:28:01


I don't even remember that song...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/27/2016:  02:45:05


I'd forgotten it but recognized it immediately. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2016:  05:30:31


I was much more a Stones guy than Gordon Lightfoot back then

dat - Posted - 07/27/2016:  05:39:41


I was listening to more Merle Haggard and Hank Jr

I was too.

ifin you want a lot of spinning done, here ya go



 



 




dat - Posted - 07/27/2016:  07:45:38


I guess I came along a little later,   I never was a stones listener, but I did like Bad Company, the Eagles, Foghat, Stevie Nicks and Bob Seager

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/27/2016:  08:17:48


I was caught up in that "folk scare" in the '60's, but had an ear on top 40 radio. The opening riff to "Satisfaction" still gets me.

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2016:  12:28:26


Foghat's Fool for the City and Segar's Against the Wind, are a couple of my anthems...

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/27/2016:  13:37:22


I think it might have been this song.

Not positive.  I know it was a Lowen & Navarro song.

dat - Posted - 07/27/2016:  14:39:14


all kinds of songs out there I haven't heard yet

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2016:  15:30:44


Liked that... dang more stuff I never heard before

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/27/2016:  15:55:48


Many of the best songs are not on mainstream radio

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2016:  17:08:43


I've heard lots of great stuff on NPR

dat - Posted - 07/28/2016:  08:21:32


pandora surprises me every once in a while with some good songs I've never heard too

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/28/2016:  13:58:52


I somehow missed the whole Lowen and Navarro thing.  They wrote the Pat  Benatar '80s hit "We Belong" and they were a huge thing in the folks music scene through the 90s.  I had one of their songs on a CD and it's one of my favorite songs ever.  And I never went to see them.



Then Eric Lowen was diagnosed with ALS and finally had to stop touring.  He died maybe four years ago.  Dan Navarro has been trying to recreate himself as a solo artist, but you can see he really likes being part of a group.  He's always got someone else playing with him onstage.  He recently broke his wrist, so maybe his predilection for having folks play with him is a good thing because he's got musician friends all over the country who are willing to play with him.



Next month I'm going to see back to back concerts with him and Ellis Paul co-bill.  I'm super excited.

dat - Posted - 07/28/2016:  14:24:02


last "concert"   more a singer at the bar, I went to see was Gene Watson,   I think thats been 12 or so years ago,    now there have been bands at crawfish boils and a few other places that were good, but they weren't advertised or the main attraction at the get together

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/28/2016:  15:14:18


I'll be seeing these bands this weekend at Stony Plain, Alberta at the Blueberry Bluegrass festvl. (the second pic is Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen..,the third pic is "Bluegrass Etc., the last pic is David Parmley and Cardinal Tradition)

Wow, looks like a great weekend coming up!!!

dmiller - Posted - 07/28/2016:  21:39:19


If you've never seen Dennis Kaplinger  and John Moore (Bluegrass Etc.) perform their set live - - you're in for a treat.  John just holds his mandolin or his guitar  pointed off to his left side, as he stares into space while playing licks that most folks only dream about being able to play.  Dennis is so big, he dwarfs any instrument he holds, and they look like toys in his hand.  They came up here to Northern Minney-soda (Lutsen, Mn) back in the early 2000's for a week-end concert/ workshop gig (not sure of the exact year) - - and when they left three days later every one's jaw was still dragging the floor.  They are THAT good.  Have a good time - - and if you get a chance to talk to John Moore - - tell him Dan Smith (a friend of his from here in Duluth Mn.) says hi.  smiley

Yeah, they are great ,dmiller. I saw them last Feb. in Arizona. Chatted with Dennis for a minute - nice guy with a sense of humour.
Will pass on the regards if I get a chance. Not sure if Dennis will make the trip - he has back problems,, but I hope he's here. What a monster picker!

dmiller - Posted - 07/28/2016:  22:08:10


Dan Smith (from here in town) is a cowboy type (from Idaho, or somewhere like that out west) and is a top notch leather-worker/ saddle maker/ and mando picker (among many other things).  He met John (I don't know when exactly - - but I think it was here in Mn) - - and if I recollect correct John wanted Dan to go on a tour to Sweden with him, and teach saddle making to the Swedes while he (John) did his concert thing over there  Those two don't really seem to "fit together" for me - - but I guess in John's mind they did.  Dan just got of the hospital (respiratory problems) here yesterday - - and I'm going to go over to visit when he gets home.  I'll have to ask him about this since it all happened about a decade or two ago, and I probably got some of the details wrong.  My memory isn't as good as it used to be.  sad  cool

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/28/2016:  22:28:02


John is a true cowboy type..,he has a ranch in Colorado. Loves his horses. So it'd be natural that he'd be interested in Dan's work.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/29/2016:  02:50:42


Sounds like an interesting friendship.

The guitar player for Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen is Chris Luquette, who used to spend a fair bit of time here in the 300 post thread.  He was originally jerrygarciabanjofan but changed his user name to tangograss.  FSDK has four or five IMBA nominations this year.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/29/2016:  06:36:44


They're getting a lot of AirPlay for their recent recording of "Leaving on a Jet Plane" - a real nice version.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/29/2016:  07:44:22


Classic old John Denver tune. 

dmiller - Posted - 07/29/2016:  08:03:07


I first heard Peter, Paul, and Mary sing it, but both versions were good.  yes

dat - Posted - 07/29/2016:  08:17:02


I heard John Denver's version first



 



If I remember right, Chris liked Johnsonville brand bratworst too  tongue    yes

OM45GE - Posted - 07/29/2016:  10:12:50


I heard PP&M first as well and always thought of it as "their" song. I was surprised when I found out Denver had written it.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/29/2016:  10:26:14


youtu.be/OOaT8mUGUvI   John Cowan is a guest singer on it.

Sort of ironic that John Denver would die in a plane crash.

The best darn thing bout Grandma's house, was her great big feather bed!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/29/2016:  19:34:27


I wonder if anyone sleeps on a featherbed nowadays. 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/29/2016:  22:05:17


You can get mattress toppers for your bed that are called feather beds.  They're not cheap, though.  But I think that's about the closest most people would come these days.

DeanT - Posted - 07/30/2016:  06:03:42


I loved feather pillows

OM45GE - Posted - 07/30/2016:  08:01:48


I'm guessing the ducks aren't too fond of them. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/30/2016:  16:17:58


we used to collect duck eggs when they nested near our back pond... mmmmmmmm

dmiller - Posted - 07/30/2016:  19:20:52


Dad was a good "gatherer", but he never went for things like duck eggs. He did take me rabbit and quail hunting back when I was just a young 'un.  We had a couple of beagles for pets and he brought them along to flush out the rabbits. He gave me a shotgun to use that was almost as big as I was.  I never shot anything - - but he always got his limit.  Rabbit is really pretty good eating - - if you don't mind spitting out the shotgun pellets there at the supper table!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/31/2016:  03:26:13


When I was a kid we used to go to a hunting camp belonging to a friend of my dads who was the federal game warden for NH. For their honeymoon, he and his wife went into the backwoods of their native Wisconsin and lived off the land for a couple of years. They were consummate Hunter gatherers. Nuts, mushrooms, ferns, frog legs, squirrels - you name it, they had probably had it for dinner. Both of them were crack shots too. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/31/2016:  07:14:12


We ate a lot of duck. We also had fresh chicken when there was more than one rooster. We also had goat and calf. Ahhh growing up on the farm. I left home and moved to the city and never looked back...

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/31/2016:  07:55:45


I worked on farms for a few years in the 1960's and 70's. I always felt more comfortable out in the country. I remember having breakfast with still-warm milk right from the cow on the table for cereal and coffee.

DeanT - Posted - 07/31/2016:  10:25:25


I naturally have a lot of compassion for life, and living on the farm was a continuous torture chamber of death. It was traumatic for me, but I never told anyone, for fear of being labeled a wuss.  Headless chickens, ducks falling out of the skies, calfs and goats I was friends with heading off to slaughter, deer and pheasants shot and dressed, deep freezer full of body parts. For me it was all a macabre of nightmares and horrors. I know it how life works and it's the way it has to be. But I couldn't take it. At 18 I left for the city, and never went back.  

OM45GE - Posted - 07/31/2016:  14:53:03


If I had to do all that slaughterhouse stuff, I would probably be a vegetarian. I've dressed my own game but didn't like it so I stopped hunting. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/31/2016:  22:15:28


I had a shotgun and a.22 but never hunted much, just fishing. I pick up beef at large slaughterhouses/beef plants - the smell is gagging sometimes.
