Be There! High Noon!

Hey Friends,

Pickamania-Logo_sm1Gotta ask something of ya’s – We need you to be at Gough Park on Saturday by noon, or 12:15 at the latest!

That’s when the (new) Gypsy Feet Band will take the stage (2nd act of the day) at Silver City’s 7th Annual Pickamania!

We’ve been working with all our hearts on our all-original set, songs written by myself and by Charlie Alfero, and we’re WAY jazzed!

DSC05609In case you haven’t heard us in awhile, we now have a 7-piece band!  Our folk-rock-Americana is filled out with not only guitars and Charlie’s mandolin and Jeff Ray’s bass, but with congas, flute, and fiddle – a tight, rockin’ sound that’s guaranteed to move your dancin’ feet!

So come on out and support your home-town (and regionally-important) folk festival – and us!

See you in the park ~

Let’s all have a great weekend ~  (And pray to send any rain on Saturday and Sunday into the Gila Wilderness.)

Took the Amtrak from Albuquerque to St. Louis

gila-national-forest-mogollon-mtns…and passed beautiful country, like this, from northern New Mexico through southern Colorado.  It truly is enchanting.

 

My friend Greg Moore, born four before me, half of "Greg and Greg Construction," early-mid 80s.

…and reconnected with old friends from as long ago as 49 years!  My friend Greg Moore, half of “Greg and Greg Construction,” early-mid 80s, met me for lunch in Columbia, MO.

 

I also reunited with old members of my first band from 9th grade – The Invaders!  Sorry I have no photos to show of that reunion, but we had a great time.  Good to be with Tom Hunter and Rick Rahmberg, pickin’ and grinnin’ til 2 in the morning.

 

And so many other good friends!  We laughed and talked into the wee hours.  I was also honored to have my songs really appreciated by these old friends, particularly “Home Again,” which felt so right to play with them…  and feels right to share with you all now.

 

 

Here’s a video version of Charlie and me performing this song at Yankie Creek Coffee House a few weeks ago.  If you haven’t checked out my (new!) video page yet, it’s the second song:  https://gregrenfro.com/music-video/

 

Speaking of which, Charlie and I will be playing (maybe with friends) at Diane’s Parlor tomorrow, Friday the 24th 6-9 pm (and also next week, the 31st).  Hope to see you there!

 

And thanks always for supporting your local musicians!
