Floating on Air at The Keel Family Function in Georgia

I am still floating on air from the fabulous Keel Family Function Festival in LaFayette, Georgia.  Wow is all I have to say.  I ran into some of my favorite Georgia people at Smokey’s place

Cherokee Farms was beautiful.  Green hills and Georgia breezes.  My headquarters was in my friend Tamara’s Scotty, which is a vintage travel trailer.

We had so much fun taking photos, making salad and sitting around the campfire.  One highlight I had was the Songwriter’s Circle.  Jeff Sipe, Ralph Rodenberry, Donna Hopkins, Jeff Mosier, Grayson Capps, Larry Keel, David Via and me all on stage together.  We each had a turn playing some tunes we wrote.  I did “Babies on the Lawn” and “Digga-Deep”.   What a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I played with Larry Keel and Natural Bridge and what a rush that was.  They are so amazing.  I remember meeting Larry and Jenny 15 years ago in 1994 in Boone, North Carolina at a place called Klondike.  I am so glad to be a part of their family.  Hopefully we will be playing the same circuit and running into each other when we are geriatrics.  Ha ha……

Paul Diaz and Treesound Studios did a fantastic job running sound and they did it all on solar wind power.  So cool.
