It's rather ironic that many excellent blues musicians want a sound that's almost diametrically opposed to what most luthiers spend their lives trying to achieve - George Gruhn, http://www.gruhn.com

BTW A clove of garlic worn around the neck, as my Romanian grandmother always did when she lived there, is advisable. Na ha ha ha (Lugosi laugh)  :P

As far as I know, in Texas, this is proof positive that I don't even exist!

Frankie--

Did you write a report on the Sighisoara gig and it slipped by me? How'd it go? Did you need the garlic around your neck?

Hi Lindy - I've been trying to find the time to put it all into words.  In a nutshell - we had a fabulous time.  Here are some videos from the festival:





I'll post more later - finally starting to get my thoughts together!

Great cuts! The sound balance on the instrumental is the best I've heard you guys have. You might have to get one o' them dreadnoughts Frank!

Take yer time, Frank, just wanted to let you know we were thinking about y'all on that trip. From a quick look at your facebook page, it looks like maybe you spent some time teaching your Romanian hosts how to square dance, that must've been a hoot.

(I had trouble accessing done gone yesterday afternoon, which had me wonderin' . . . all fixed, whatever it was.)

Thanks, Frankie, great story, well-told. Glad you talked your way into an alternative space for the unplugged blues.

Romanian plum wine, yum!

Great write up frankie -- it IS hard to imagine so much applause and excitement for country blues in a country like Romania - but don't sell yourselves short - you've got a fabulous group!

Thanks, guys.  We had a great time, for sure, and were welcomed so warmly.

Thanks, Slack.  We do what we can with what we got!
