Music This Week Oct 9th thru Oct 15th

Hey there,
This is going to be a quickie. The good news is I was able to back up the  boot hard drive before it crashed. It is the computer I use to do all the  music editing and uploading. The rest of the news about that computer is I  found about 125 hours of recordings I haven’t edited and posted. Most of it  is around the first of this year. I went to AURA, Springfest and Wanee  and recorded about 100 hours in 11 days of festivals. That started the  avalanche I’m trying to dig out from under. I also recorded from 11:30 am  until 11:30 pm last Sat adding to the pile. I have threatened in the past to  slow down my recording schedule but this time I have no choice I’m going  to have to slow down. I do have friends recording some shows this week  but I’ll only be in town for a few shows.
My favorites from last week were Adron, Timi Conley, breathlanes,  Whisper Kiss and the 1st set of Kenosha Kid last night. I didn’t hear the  2nd set, I had to leave to record Big C’s Blues Jam, I did record both sets  so I’ll eventually hear it.
Here is  a new video just in from my friend Jonathan Scales:
