Wow, where to start!
Wendi is walking every so often with NO cane or walker after having both hips replaced last year. AMAZing grace!!
Working out daily, groovin’ on low-carb diet strong again, doing the Dr. visits after some years, so far so good 🙂
Enjoying my family, back at metal shop one day each week, recording a project for release one day each week, more webwork happening, writing and new project work, responding to tour requests, blogging, about to build a special rig for busking with cigarbox/found-object guitars, etc., very much looking forward to that when warm weather comes! I’ve some rather unique design features for street and even typical solo concerts.
As usual studying a wide variety of things in various areas of interest. Typing this via a new live AntiX Linux distribution. Built a few quick diddley-bows (1 string slide guitars) out of junk… all sound cool and have inspired fresh songs.
GK SOLO BLUES
I’m slowly back to recording tunes for a solo cigarbox/found-object solo blues project. Little by little my friend Joe Filisko will blow harp on some of the tunes, I’ll add a bit of harp, maybe some percussion on a few. A lot more songs to record prior to choosing for the project. Release dates and info will be posted when the time comes. A lot to still record and make decisions about. Finished a Leadbelly cover/re-write for that today.
I’ve a list of tour requests, praying, thinking, will publicize when finalized as usual.
Been invited to help produce another bro’s project and will start on that very soon.
GKB is soon to woodshed on new songs, likely to release a few new tunes prior to our German/Swiss/Czech tour in early June. Roy’s written a ton of ’em, I’ve several, we’ll just select a handful for starters, then pare ’em down and record, play them some live prior to that tour. The concept is when we have a full project we’ll release it as such, publicizing it when that happens, same re. tour dates.
Folks have asked about a Christmas cd… perhaps we’ll get to that, but all these others come ahead of that.
I’ve written a number of worship songs as have others here at JPUSA, so we -may- see a compilation project come together in the next year or so.
I’ve mentioned an arts blog dealing with several different art forms, teaching notes, links to a number of too-little-known folks who do amazing work, teaching and mission via arts that I want to promote. There seems to be no single repository of such on the web but there will be soon as I can get things in order and be certain the links are all good. Will pub that when ready for action too!
All-in-all a GREAT deal of grace in my life, and certainly easier due to my sweet Wendi’s health. She is SUCH a GIFT to me.
May you find and know the Love Eternal… Easter is coming!
Thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
