Doing a 3 hour slide workshop in Denver with lap steel virtusos Roosevelt Collier Saturday November 22 from 11-2pm
at the 1Up music venue. Here's the link for info.
Here's a sample of Roosevelt and myself playing together
Hope to see you there!
Andy Hall from the Infamous Stringdusters and Roosevelt Collier from the Lee Boys playing the song "Reuben's Train".
"That" season is upon us as of about 12:09
I know everybody was really excited to see the new National Scheerhorn collaboration, but I think just as much attention was paid to Paul Beard's offerings at Resosummit. He seemed to be doing a very brisk business selling the Beard Legend cone and new cover plates. His new Model 27 based on Tut Taylor's old guitar is one fine instrument. I borrowed it while Paul upgraded my Tennessean and was very impressed.
Mike Witcher had a new Jerry Douglas Blackbird that was a sweet as could be, and the Beard Odyssey that Andy Hall tried out sounded fantastic (less so when I tried it, but I think there may be a talent difference at work there).
This is truly a golden age for resonator guitar. We are incredibly lucky to have people like Paul, Tim and others making their finest instruments right now.
