While this guitar gently weeps

In the R District of Sacramento is an artist loft and retail mall including a record store run by Marty DeAnda the founder of Dig Records. On the wall near the reg is a small guitar signed, it claims by musicians from the 2002 Russian River Blues festival: Debbie Coleman, Elvin Bishop and more.
It reminded me that in 2003 I toured several dates with my then-client Henry Butler and those two musicians, Front Porch Blues Tour.
I went to the 2004 Russian River Festival while auditioning to manage Roy Tyler, of Gospel Hummingbirds, who had a new record out on Severn Records.
