Bela Fleck, Leo Kottke, Keb Mo, Taj Majal & Boz Scaggs Coming Soon to WoodSongs & Troubadour!

Fall always brings change.  Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is not so good.  I have learned over my nearly 60 years that although change is not easy, if I can stand with the turning tide and its shifting sands, I can stand through just about anything.  My youngest brother passed in July; my middle brother moved to Lexington and is reuniting with his son; and my youngest brother's son has been in contact, and we have a cool relationship, one unlike any other I have experienced.  

Fall may make some folks shiver with the cold weather it brings; it might cause folks who are otherwise sensible to shriek, moo, meow and howl at the moon.  It may cause guys to go into football watching comas until the New Year rushes its bad self in.  However, for me, Fall will always be a reminder of a new school semester, time to find my socks and shoes and get moving to prepare for Advent, a season full of aromas and warmth as we all attempt to raise our fur and huddle closer together.  Perhaps that's the way it is meant to be.  I don't know ... but what I do know is that no matter what time of year, Michael Johnathon and his volunteer crew serve up the best concerts in Lexington.  Praise be to them!  Today I learned about a few WoodSongs Special Events and some Troubadour news.  Check it out:
