i can’t think for ya

Just a quick stop here. John Shaw’s written a beautifully incoherent rumination that struck me today. Here it is. I myself took awhile to get into Gram, but it’s worth it, b/c he did some kickass stuff. His entire career is the stuff of Romance. Very dramatic. Its funny how hokey this video is. You think perhaps we are romanticizing him because he died young? Probably.

More to the point, music plays you. Read it because it’s about folk music. And consesquently, all music.

music reframes your goggle-eyes, opens your pores, pours your openings, unclogs your spirit-veins, rains your mains, re-trains your brains, soothes your chilblains, music gets under your skin, music plays you.”

I am disappearing into the chasm where past and present become pretty much indistinguishable. Come see me play next week in Virginia ( or hang out and in August we should be rollin’ again.
