The other night in low 30 degree weather, I grabbed my old beach guitar (a 90’s yamaha acoustic) and played outdoor at a bonfire with my friend Chris Fitz. Keeping within the protocol we kept the audience to under 20 people and played until we couldn’t feel our fingers anymore, just under 5 hours.
And it was great for so many reasons. The best was at the end when someone told me how important it was that I came and did it, and how live music was medicine.
And he was apologetic that there weren’t more people and so there wasn’t as much money to go around. I told him my supporters have my back. My listeners have been great to me through these trying times and I’m going to continue doing it, until the last fire.
Maybe it’s time for another Covid.
