Had a Great Gig in Dayton

I performed with multi-instrumentalist Geoff Walker. We did originals and a few Folk covers, using banjo, mandolin, guitar, and pennywhistle. Great response overall from the attendees.

And best of all, I didn’t embarrass myself, which is always a risk when you go that long between gigs.

The homeowners who welcomed us to there back porch were very nice and helpful. I honestly believe that “a good time was had by all.” Geoff and I certainly enjoyed it.

Looking forward to lining up more venues, etc., as things start opening up again.
