Pedestrian Ramblings

The last weekend of Sept. was great. Had a business trip to Indy, which provided an opportunity to stop in Dayton and listen to brother Jeff and Erin Higgins do a show at the Toll House. They were both sporting new Taylor Koas, which sounded great. Got back in time to perform an early show at the Rocky River Fest. on the west side of Cleveland on Sat. Really nice to see the partnership in that watershed coming together for such a nice event. Cleveland Metroparks was a wonderful host site. I hustled off to Geneva on the Lake to do my last afternoon show of the year at the Old Fire House and Marge and Harry showed up!Sweet to have the freindly faces, and talk with Harry about building a guitar for me! Concluded the weekend playing sunday night at a lovely barn party for Jon and Aimee. What a super evening. Again great to see familar faces, and hear so many nice comments. Hope everyone who took an Arrow Creek CD home enjoys it! Will be working on the house this week. A brief performance next weekend for a memorial dedication for Chuck Ashcroft. Chuck was the Director of the Gand RIver Parnters Inc. and he passed away entirely too early. He was a wonderful and gentle person, and he loved the song Rivers and Trails. We could all only hope to preserve a little piece of the world in our life time and Chuck did just that. I am honored to have been asked to play a song at the dedication of this Grand River access area that will be named for Chuck.
