Music This Week Sept 10th thru Sept 16th

Hey there,
What an incredible two weeks!!! I started with a private 4 day party with about 1000 people and a fantastic lineup of musicians. I felt right at home there although it was my first time. My favorite comment was that although I was a virgin to the festival it felt like I was ensconced there.
Then there was Lockn’. WOW. Even though I was heartbroken that Further and Rat Dog were not playing the rest of the bands made up for their absence. You know you are at a great festival when Willie Nelson was the low-light. I will be posting that festival next.
That is I will post it as soon as WordPress (the software I use to create my web site and consider some of the worst software on the market) fixes an error they introduced with an update last night. I can no longer create links to point to the music.  In the mean time go to:
I can’t put that link, or any others, on my web site. This is all I have for now until the problem is fixed.
We have Athens Intensified festival this week, check it out.
