3-in-a-row! Tucson Folk Festival

We’ve done it again friends!

Darrell Elmer Rodgers and Rick Heyman have been selected to perform at the 26th annual Tucson Folk Festival! This is our third year in a row.  This time promises to be even better however because we’ve been scheduled to perform on the Plaza Stage – that’s the main venue of the whole festival!  And we’re on stage at 5PM  Sunday May 1, just a few acts prior to the evening headliner The Kevin Pakulis Band.  This is going to be fun.

And it might be better financially as well since the Kitchen Store – where all performers CDs are sold – is right THERE.  Last year at the Museum stage, folks would ask “Can I buy your CD?” and I’d say “sure! just walk up the hill about a quarter mile to the Kitchen Store”.  hmmm….  We sold only 2 CDs last year.  Of course, there’s 114 other acts, most of whom have CDs for sale as well, but I’d still like to think having the store more convenient to the stage will help.  Time will tell.

We just performed as a trio here at our house for the Casa Grande Ayyam-i-Ha party last Friday night and we had a ball doing it. I really enjoy playing with Rick and Mike.  The full sound of bass and drums really makes a difference.  What really made that weekend special was the “sleep-over” – both Rick and Mike stayed the night.  We played again after everyone went home and on Saturday, I plugged in my Rickenbacker and we jammed the blues for an hour or two. Sweet.




 I’m still messing around with my video production and will be posting another short video soon. I’m writing a novelty tune for my Baha’i friends called “Fasting Time” that will be a sort of inside joke to them. Every year from March 2nd through March 20th, Baha’is the world over refrain from eating and drinking (and smoking) from sun-up to sun-down. Of course, as you will hear in my lyrics, we “eat like a tornado” after sunset. Stay tuned friends!
