Coming into KentuckyHeaded out at 5:45am... it′s almost 8:30pm and we are chilling in our hotel... the Microtel in Lexington Kentucky... watching bad tv after having a fine dinner... takeout from the Bob Evans retaurant. Sipping on a Kentucky ale... brewed at a local mico-brewery... and purchased at the Shell on the corner.

So - Billy Bragg is coming to the Mariposa Folk Festival this year... a festival I have attended faithfully for the last number of years. When I read the announcement about Billy Bragg being added to the lineup I was launched on a wave of nostalgia.

I have been afflicted by a state of paralysis in terms of creating art. After an amazing experience sharing the stage with Bob Wiseman back at the end of January I lost focus... What is it I’m doing here? Gotto keep asking myself that question... and hoping for clarification. I get carried away thinking I need to go out and find gigs... and make a cd... and do things the way they are supposed to be done. But that really doesn’t have much to do with what I’m doing here.

I’ve been playing with the process of songwriting over the pst few years... trying to push myself into less comfortable areas of my “creative” terrain. I started this song by recording the rhythm guitar and then the guitar break... I wrote (hmmm... “wrote”) the lyrics in a sort of free-form sing-song along to the music. I found myself singing in a different voice... anyone who knows me - knows that - I often speak in different voices... well different accents anyway... but this isn’t really like that...
