All about good-kharma Celtic music and musicians in and around San Antonio, Texas.

As good an answer as I can imagine to some of the drivel being tossed about these days by lots of candidates, surrogates, and "pundits". Let the songs of reason, compassion, justice, and equality for all be heard!
Lots of songs and tunes were shared at the Olmos Bharmacy last Thursday with Dan Allen, Tom McMasters, Erika Wert, Florence Bunten, Maria Larson and Tom McKenna all joining in. A big crowd, including one large group, was there. I really appreciate all the great feedback and requests from the audience. It's just a lot of fun to play for an appreciative and attentive audience.
Dan continues to expand his repertoire, and we're all looking forward to him bringing his latest whistle, which he created himself. Since, as a member of the U.S. Air Force, he has access to all that military hardware, he's salvaged the exhaust system of a T-28 single-engle training plane to create an ultra-low whistle, which will be able to accurately reproduce the lowest frequencies of humpback whale song, if he can figure out how to play it under water. Updates as they become available -- be sure to ask Dan about it when you see him.
Special thanks to Florence, Chris Champlin and Tommy for the timely assist in loading gear at the end of the evening. With my currently misbehaving knee, I'm not moving quite as nimbly as usual, since my normally cat-like grace and dexterity is somewhat limited. What a crummy design for a joint, anyway.
A special mention also to our friend Amy Abeyta. We miss your great singing and your good company and hope circumstances soon permit you to rejoin us. As Dylan said, "The times, they are a-changin' . . .", doubtless for the better. Be well, Amy.
There'll be no impairment of our ability to make music tonight, though, and (we hope) no lack of frosty beverages to cool us down after another hot summer day. Welcome to August in San Antonio, everyone! so, come out to the Olmos Bharmacy tonight and every Thursday night from 8 'til midnight, and join us for a tune, a song, and a cold one. And remember the Principle of Ones: "A One that isn't cold, is scarcely a One at all."
