Somewhere along the line, the shop sessions became known as “Church” … and that works for me just fine. (I figure church is where you find it – or it finds you.)My “Bearin’s” column mentions one special Sunday – when a friendly stranger with a guitar sat in with us for a few tunes. It took us a few months to figure out that we’d been blessed with a visit from Mick Lynch of the duo Storyman and his wife Deborah Lopez, a noted NYC-based photographer. I’ll let you read the CFN column for yourself … in the meantime, here are the two videos mentioned in the piece: Mick leading us through “Whiskey In The Jar” and “Danny Boy” (the only time I’ve ever been in a room full of sober people singing that one).
Happy New Year to you … maybe we’ll see you in Church.
“Whiskey In The Jar”:
