Jon (from report 2) also busks on Amtrak trains. Yep. Buys a ticket, heads to the lounge car and sings old time tunes revved up to punk energy levels. His partner, Maria Moss, plays beautifully and throws down some fine harmony, too. Yes sir, you road folk lead such interesting lives. Maybe we'll talk about that astronaut we met in our next report. Maybe not.
One of many highlights was meeting, talking to and jamming with Jon Hogan and Maria Moss deep in the West Texas desert. Jon seems to know just about every song in the American roots tradition, you know the old stuff. But he's also a fine songwriter in his own right. We really loved hearing his "Dig and Dine" tune, about the Irish potato famine.
Well, I tried to give what I considered a brief account of our just completed 2012 Southwestern Spring Tour. But the Reverbnation site wouldn't allow it. It was too long. I edited it down to just under the 4,000 character limit, but it still wouldn't let me post. So this is all you get for now. A no account account. A complaint. I only have so much time to waste learning how this all works. Now I have other stuff to do. Adios.
