I almost forgot


We went to our favorite concert venue, Wildwood Springs Lodge, on the 10th for an evening with Michael Martin Murphy. I’ve posted before about shows at Wildwood. If you’re ever in this neck of the woods during their concert season I would strongly recommend seeing a show there.

The lodge was built in the 20’s and retains most of its original charms. The shows are awesome. The performances are done in the lobby with a small audience of under 200. It is very much like having a concert in a living room. Not to be left out of this equation is the meal that they serve up in the dining room. It is a hard to beat evening.

We have seen a number of great shows at the lodge over the last few years. The Dirt Band, Leo Kottke, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, The Grascals, Karla Bonoff, John Hammond, Tony Rice with Peter Rowan and Taj Mahal.

Tonights offering is Leon Russell…

    Sounds nice. I’ve always liked seeing musicians in small venues. There is something so much more personal about them than a huge hall.
