Active Rain is home to some fine musicians. Real Estate and the professions that support it seem to attract some very creative people.
In my humble opinion, any group worth its salt needs a fiddle player. Larry Morris is ours, and he can make that electric fiddle talk!
The four of us were practicing in my office last Thursday night, getting ready to cut a CD as the application entry for our group,
4 Wheel Buggy. We finished up Monday night, (bottom photo) and sent it off to the judges at the 2008 Tucson Folk Festival.
If we make the cut, they'll let us know in about three weeks that we've been chosen to perform, one of several dozen individuals and groups who will entertain you from five simultaneous venues in the heart of downtown Tucson.
Introductions would be in order, now that you know Larry. That's Frank Hartline with the dobro up there on the left, your's truly in the center, and Tucson songwriter Jim Hogan on the right. "Another Cervesa Would Be Nice" is one of Jim's songs on our entry CD.
I hope the judges like it! I know you would, so keep your fingers crossed for us! Plan to attend if you'll be in Tucson on May 3rd and 4th.
