I saw some great music this past week. It started with the Lewi Longmire band at Sam Bond's garage last Saturday night. Lewi and the band were in fine form and started the show with his tune "When Your Time Comes A-Callin'" so I started my show this week with the same tune.
Merle Haggard was suppose to play in town last Wednesday evening but had to postpone the show till Monday. I'm still looking forward to seeing him and I hope that this little bit of rest has helped him recover.
Arlo Guthrie has had his family out on tour since the fall and came through Corvallis this past week. They have an wonderful family oriented show which even has the youngest in the family on stage. Arlo is at his best as the story telling grandfather offering great tales of his father and his own experiences throughout the evening.
This show also had a set of Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett music in it since I was giving away tickets for their shows here in Eugene this summer. We also want to wish Willie a Happy birthday.
