It’s been a musically wonderful weekend so far. On Friday I sat in with Gary Keep and Roger Bramble, playing sea shanties and assorted Irish tunes at a backyard party in Alameda. That led to an unplanned, but marvelous gig playing for a group of veterans from the Yountville veterans home, at the Aeolian Yacht Club, also in Alameda. Today, St. Patrick’s Day, Avalon Rising takes the stage at the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. Slainte!!!
