Howdy! I play primarily folk and soft rock. I have recently become more seriously involved in writing and performing original material. I co-host an open mic at the Metro Diner Cafe in Annapolis on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
I have a Takamine 363SC electric acoustic, autographed by my idol, Janis Ian. I also have a 1976 acoustic Penco A180 (my first guitar) that I have had for more than 30 years. It is an example of the golden age of Japanese knock-offs, great guitar, had a pickup installed. I have a Variax Line 6 with pedaloard that can replicate the sound of 25 different guitars, has a great acoustic 6 and 12 string, and jazz guitar settings. Also does resonator and banjo.
A Santa Cruz Janis Ian model guitar. Dream on.
I consider myself an intermediate level player.
#1 is Janis Ian, best female singer songwriter bar none. Carole King, Laura Nyro, are other favorites, and I recently discovered Cosy Sheridan who is one hell of a singer songwriter. Took classes with both Janis and Cosy at the Swannanoa Gathering in North Carolina in August 2013.
I am a BGG Member, and read about the new group on Facebook, so here I am.
A great group, come on out and play!
Hey, thanks for the meetup references, Randy. I'll be at your next open mic and hope to attend a few others in the area. Looks like fun.
Hey, Randy, I would like to put your email address on the program in case anyone wants to get the recording from you. Is that okay? If so, what is it? Also, fyi, I am having performers fill out a form for specs, and will include the question as to whether they want to be recorded, so that we will know in advance.
Hey Randy where you be? Been missing you. Tuesday's at Gianni's. Hope you are well and all the SW folks miss you! Ed V.
Hey Randy - Welcome to Chesapeake Kayak Adventures! I sounds like you've had some really great kayaking experiences in the past. Something tells me that you'll find most of us to be "like minded" and we hope you'll get out and join us when you're looking for more than solitary pursuits. Welcome!
Hi Randy, Merry Christmas and HAPPY new YEAR! Hope all goes well with your medical. Going to miss you till your return which we hope is fast. SEE YOU SOON. Ed and Mary.
Hi Randy, Good luck with your surgery. We'll keep you in our prayers. Get well soon. Ed (and Mary)
Hope you're doing well and hope you can come out again soon.
