Road trip to perform again at Paradise Landing

Yesterday Tim Sunde and I hit the road to Balsam Lake, joined by John Hiiva, to play on the patio at Paradise Landing for the 4th consecutive season. The gift of playing music with good friends fills my heart and is very satisfying.  I really appreciate the time we have together.  

Tim and I have been performing live music together since about 1994.  He plays a mean 7 string bass guitar.  I brought my Breedlove cut away 6 string acoustic guitar. John adds great percussion, drums and cajon. I've always wanted to have a great percussionist with us. 

I love the music we play.  Our fans give me a lot of motivation and encouragement to continue.  I plan to do just that for a long time!
