“Bill Baer, who introduced the evening's blue theme: songs from Robert Johnson and many others picked, snapped, twanged, shimmered and chimed. Bill's got a great feel for these songs, and it's a pleasure to share in the pleasure he gets playing them. We got a treat when newcomer Kevin Duggan joined him on harp for a song or two -- with great tone, phrasing, trills, and octaves.”
“Last night, Bill Baer was an especially rewarding newcomer, in that he has a wealth of musical experience to share -- country blues and ragtime originating early in the last century, with some wonderfully blended originals augmenting the set. We loved Robert Johnson's "Love In Vain," as well as an instrumental original titled either "Gee Whiz" or "Flat Back Tuna Fish" -- you pick. A banjo always brings a smile; Bill did some "old timey" numbers on the goat skin, and shifted between two guitars with some deft finger picking and a twangy, shimmering slide. Satisfying music for three generations! We're already looking forward to having Bill back for another round. · ~ ·”
