Nashville and Memphis - more music to hear and to paint

| 23 September, 2011 15:17

  I just returned from a six day trip to Nashville and Memphis, my first for both places. These streets of music- Broadway (Nashville) and Beale Street (Memphis) each have their own feel and sound.  I must have thousands of references and hope to start painting from them within the week.  I thought I'd share just a couple of photos for fun. I found Shawn Mayer and Mark Dooley in Nashvile, at Whiskey Bent on Broadway.  They were great.  Mark plays like he means it and Shawn- Shawn can sing.  Kind of a Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge kind of sound. . . I don't know, I just really liked it.  So many other fine musicians, but this blogging stuff is way out of my league, so I'll leave it at this and get back to work.  Thanks to everyone out there making music for us to enjoy.
