Harpin for Hunger

Larry and I rode up to Pawling, NY last night, and despite leaving late and bad traffic on the bridge, we made it on time. Larry ordered dinner which was pretty good. I had Black Bean soup.

We saw Dennis Gruenling, Steve Guyger, Big Joe Fitz, and Chris O’Leary. Great backup by Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones. It lasted more than three hours, but unfortunately the house was light. I think 40 people or fewer were there, possibly because Sunday night before July 4th is a bad weekend to do anything.

Here is a neat video of the performers doing a really goofy set of Sonny Boy Williamson’s great song “Eyesight to the Blind”. Steve Guyger was the only one who knew the lyrics and he ran out of things to sing so he just sang the last verse for the last 5 minutes.

Good stuff nonetheless.
