The Red Bird Songwriter’s Showcase February 28, 2008

We had the opportunity to attend and play a few of our original songs at the Redbird Songwriter’s Showcase in Maumee, at the Maumee Indoor Theatre.  The host, Tedd Swartz, invited Jeff and myself, Sherri, to come and sing a few of our songs that we have written on February 14th, 2008.

We must admit, we were unsure of how it would be recieved… afterall, this was not a bluegrass songwriter’s showcase, rather a acoustic, americana, ah, easy listening sort of crowd to the best of our understanding.  And we couldn’t bring the whole band!  (agh!  We love playing with our whole band!  And well, banjo and bass duets are not really found much in bluegrass… sorry….)  But it was an honor to be asked, so we went.

We met some wonderful people, exposed a audience to our style of writing and had a very nice time.  We got to play our new song, “Follow Me” as well as “Brother Ben”, Back Home in West Virginia”  and a brief round of the instrumental “Backroads” which was a bit thin since it was just Sherri taking a break like 4 times.  (haha)

Still, anytime we get a chance to bring new people into the fold and giving the public a chance to hear some live bluegrass music, then it’s a good thing.

Check out the Redbird Songwriter’s Showcase if you’re in the area… you can learn more at the website…   www.teddswartz.com

New Podcast is Up! October 19, 2007

Yes, we managed to get another Glass City Opry podcast done and in the can. Actually, it’s more, in the computer, but I think you understand! I think we got our technology just a little better on this one… thanks to Mike, we made some little pop screens for our headset mics and that really helped to get rid of the tin can reverby sound of the first one.

I know it’s not totally about Deepwater…. but of course, we mention a lot of good stuff about Toledo area bluegrass and of course, it’s a little self-serving, since we do get to mention the band too! What a deal….

So go and take a look (or a listen) if you’d like!
