Hey all,

I am actually booked to sell my CBGs at the Blues and Brews Festival this year. It has been moved from Nashoba to Lowell (JFK Plaza this year. Its on August 11th. I sold a bunch last year. A few weeks back I sol, I sold at the New England Folk Festival too. I would love to get together to just jam and compare.

Yup, would be nice.  Probably just a get together first and see what's what.  I know Ben was trying to put something together from the Gitty side a few years ago before I became hooked.  Are there any blues fests out your way?

It's spring right?  Okay 91 degrees yesterday, but at least w should be done with that "other" stuff.

What is everyone up to?  How do we get this group active?

This neck of the woods is pretty lacking in this art form.

Ping?  Anyone home?  Felt like spring today, and tomorrow 70 degrees....YIKES!!

Comment by John Matrishon on November 7, 2017 at 8:06pm

Maybe we see if we can plan an excursion to CB Gitty in NH ?  That is if Ben would let us visit for a little bit.....
