I have done a terrible job of keeping up to date in recent weeks. At the end of March, Sandy and I went to see Tierney Sutton both nights she was in Minneapolis and the gigs were excellent, although the second night audience seemed to be fairly comatose. We also went to see Snowblind at the Dakota, who played their unique brand of brass oriented modern jazz.
In the first week of April, I spent a weekend at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, taking four seminars from Gary Lee Joyner on guitar & harmonica, songwriting, music theory and improvisation. It's a great place and I enjoyed getting out of town for a few days. I didn't get to see Steve Earle, though, because the concerts that weekend were both sold out.
