Quote of the Day

ďAs soon as you start relying completely on technology, you may end up with something that only shines on the first listen. What you need is something thatís going to be interesting to you over and over. And the only thing that gives you that is people, because machines donít have a soul.Ē- Patrick Leonard

Do you record guitar?

Carolyn Martin - Credit Where It's Due

May 31, 2011

It's been a while since my last blog entry. A trip to Spain, Springtime in the Rockies (where the late snowfalls mean that hiking still means snowshoeing and where ski runs may remain open until 4th of July...), it all went by so quickly.

Today I received news I'd like to share with all who have read Dave Martin's fine articles in Recording over the many years that Dave has been contributing from his Java Jive studio outside Nashville.

Dave's wife Carolyn is a fine singer - I have fond memories of hearing her sing with the band that performs Monday nights at the Station Inn in Nashville. She has just been recognized - CONGRATULATIONS - but read it from the source:

Howdy, Folks!

We hope that you’ve had a great Memorial Day weekend, and are rested and recharged to begin the summer. Nashvillians know that cicadas are singing, summer is here.†

For us, the biggest news is Carolyn’s induction into the Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame! In a ceremony on May 21, 2011 Al Dressen, the organizer of the Texas Natural and Western Swing Festival, assisted by 2010 Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame inductee Billy Mata and former Asleep at the Wheel vocalist Maryann Price, named Martin an “Ambassador for Western Swing” and presented her with a Texas shaped plaque to celebrate her induction.

June will be a interesting month for Carolyn – we’ll begin with an appearance at the Wartrace MusicFest on June 3 at the Wartrace Horse Show Grounds on Bridgeview Avenue in Wartrace, Tennessee. In the middle of June, Carolyn travels to sunny New Mexico for performances at the Albuquerque Folk Festival on June 18 – we’ll be on the main Villa Hispana Stage at 11:00AM with a couple of workshops to follow. We’ll finish out the evening in beautiful Santa Fe, NM, we’re we’ll play at the Buckaroo Ball in the Sante Fe Railyards beginning at 6:30. And on Sunday, June 19, we will be performing for a Father’s Day show at the South Broadway Cultural Center in Albuquerque, beginning at 2:00PM. Finally, we’ll close out June with a return to Nashville and the legendary Station Inn. That show will be on Thursday, June 30 beginning at 9:00PM.†

We certainly hope that you can attend one or more of these shows – we’re planning to swing hard!
