I’ve been geeking on all kinds of things Molly Tuttle since announcing a show with the locally-raised bluegrass guitar star — articles, videos, sound files, correspondence.
David Hess is a college classmate of mine in Baltimore who is a renowned artist, a scultptor. I noticed today for the first time that he’s created a series of improvised mock assault rifles, shown around the East Coast, to create conversation about America’s weirdness (and tragedy) around guns.
But quixotically and inscrutably, I am declining to state the exact juxtoposition of these two artists. (I think the only time I can recall talking to David Hess about music, he referenced a song from a Dr. Seuss cartoon show).
Meanwhile, Molly Tuttle is the fastest selling show I’ve had at Mitchell Park — for Monday, September 30. All sold online at EventBrite (I told the people at Gryphon that I’d make some hard tickets to sell over counter, but have not come thru yet).
Also, it turns out that Maureen Roddy Tuttle, the mother of the musicians and wife of music teacher Jack Tuttle, is a Cubberley High School graduate.
Meanwhile I am running or walking around town with flyers designed for my John Santos show, designed by 26 yer old Palo Altan Cheyenne Woodward.
Also, speaking of young creative Palo Altans, I had coffee with Beauman Edwards, a Berkelee grad — like Tuttle — who plays frequently with Equator at Lytton Plaza.
