Tractor Pulls and Good Music
I've sat in with blues songwriter Pat Wictor at a few of his gigs, and I'll be playing the Connecticut Agricultural Fair with him tomorrow. I'll be joining him on the side stage along with Mara Levine, a vocalist whose harmonies have blown me away at a number of shows recently, and percussionist Cheryl Prashker.

Pat is an extraordinary songwriter who plays beautiful lap slide guitar, doing songs that are firmly rooted in the blues but entirely original. He's also one of the only people (aside from John Cephas) who can cover Skip James, the deepest of the Mississippi blues singers, successfully. Pat is a great musician and a good guy and I'm very happy to be playing with him.

This is very cool. Does "tomorrow" mean "Saturday"?

Nope, I checked the link—Friday it is. My bad.

Yes, "tomorrow" will mean Friday until midnight, at which point it will then mean Saturday. :-)

Ooooh, this sounds like a fun gig, to be sure! You'll do a great job, and hopefully, you'll have great weather to go along with the good company and fantastic venue. Many congrats!

I'm jealous you get to go to the Connecticut Agricultural Fair (and probably get in for free too).
