I packed for Israel, New York, & MA last week. In MA we played at the Guthrie Center in Great Barrington. This is Arlo's deal, and they do wonderful free services for the community. Please check it out sometime. Our (Woody Sez) performances were fundraising events, and everyone was happy about the two sold-out shows.

These shows were also brush-up practice for us. When I opened the flight case holding my fiddle, bows, and mandolin, my fiddle was broken. I'm pretty sure I wrote something about a musician and their tools several years ago. I'll put a link here when I find it.

I try to do more than I can. Often. But I need to read my own words of wisdom again...

Packing for weather, packing to fit in culturally. I did that before I left Austin, and honing all down again. We leave tomorrow for Tel Aviv.

I'll do my very best to get more up before I go. The Holy Lands have struggle. Cultural boycotts! When music is the universal language, I don't get it. Still, I've read up some, and I'll share my experiences. Just as soon as I can get online and post again...

Here it is...  "A Musician and their Tools." It and many other music tips are up on my other website, Taller Dog. Ya gotta go in a page or two to read this blog. Still, you might find interesting and amusing stuff while looking! I haven't done anything with that site for a really long time. I will move the music tips over here to this site as soon as I can. In the meantime, check that out, as a reminder for any of us who play or create any kind of art. Anyone who's been commenting or following my Facebook post on my broken fiddle...

Cotton Eyed Joe & other ringtones

 

The link I had for this ringtone is outdated. Until I can get a new link, if you'd like to have it, just email me, I'll send it directly to you. You can hear it by listening to "cotton-eyed-joe' on the music player directly below. The  ringtone is the 1st 30 seconds.

 

Ringtones that come with your phone can get old. If you'd like to know it's your phone that's ringing, and not someone else's - not only will you have choices here, I'll make you your own!
