THAT was incredible.
Will Kimbrough forever.
The better the house concert, the worse I sleep, so suffice to say…I was VERY tired the next day. In the midst of my in and out state of sleep and dreams, I composed part of a blog post in my head that including talking about Will's golden aura. In the light of day, I decided not to go with that, but it bears mentioning.
Ok, I KNEW he would be great. We have his albums, we've watched video…we even saw him play a bit at an AmericanaFest several years ago, but really, we had NO FUCKING idea. Also, even though I'd always heard he was a great guy, I didn't know what a truly lovely human he is.
Shows like this sustain me. I am so grateful.
Love and thanks to Will, Sara for making it happen, and to all that came. Oh, and to Amelia White for being the best surprise guest!!

Oh, and Rascal seemed somewhat exhausted by his antics of the night before. Next show we're going to try to stuff him with cat food ahead of time and see if that helps…
