Who said guitar was easy?

I went over to Powell on Friday night to Espresso Yourself Music Cafe. I met long time friend Dick Plunk and had a very enjoyable evening listening to Chris Bare and Tom Gorman. Chris is booked for the Columbus Folk Music Society, March Coffee House. For a preview of Chris he is going to try to get to the Coffee House Open Mic this month, which is a fund raiser for the festival. Chris always puts on an entertaining set with plenty to sing along with and a good few smiles to help you along.

Tom Gorman is a singer song writer who knows his way around a fret board and produces very interesting lyrics. I love song lyrics that are open to interpretation within our own lives. The title track Route 39 of his CD is such a song. A lost love we have all had and the guitar has a real driving rhythm. The whole CD has a relaxed easy feel to it, yet you find your foot tapping, there is also a definite commercial edge, if one of these songs got pickup by a top artist I can see Tom going places. If you are into words you will like this CD.

If you have not been yet you are missing out on a treat. If ever a place should be supported by musicians this is it.

That player was excellent - but have you ever seen Tommy Emmanuel?

I have not had that pleasure.

Where would it be possible to see him. Does he tour?
