TIn Pan South

This past March, Carole and I spent 7 days in Nashville Tn. with our friend John Harper for the Tin Pan South song writers festival. It was a remarkable event and I took a ton of photos. I have finally culled the best 216 and posted them to my photo web site. You can browse all at once or look at them by show. Included artists include big names like Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, Carlene Carter and Suzy Boggus (check out her new CD). There were a host of other lesser know song writers who have been responsible for an awful lot of good music. Gary Burg (Sat. late) wrote many of the country hits you hear on the radio, Gretchen Peters is a critically acclaimed singer song writer whose work has been covered by major stars. the list goes on and on.
Probably the moxt amazing night was the early show on Friday at the legendary Bluebird Cafe. It featured Mike Reid, who penned "I can't make you love me" for Bonnie Raitt among others. Also sitting in was Stephen Schwartz, lycist of Wicked and Godspell as well as a host of movie and TV songs. We sat within arms reach of thses masters as they played. The photo will explain how close we were.
