Music in the mountains

Oh my, it's been busy around here...and I haven't found the time in front of the computer.  Anyway, I'm going to finish the story of Guitar Town.

I'll make mention of some of my favorite guitar players.  First up, it's Joe Robinson.  A few years ago he won the "Australia's Got Talent" competition; he's truely gifted!  I first saw him when he was just 17 years old; now he's around 20.  He's grown up and filled out, and he's trying to make his way into the guitar greats with his own style. I hope he makes it big.

John Jorgenson is another; he's a 2-time Grammy winner and a legend in the guitar world.  Over the weekend, I heard him play in three different bands he's put together: acoustic quartet, blue grass, and electric.  He can play anything!! I bought his latest blue grass CD; it's fantastic!!

Laurence Juber is another GREAT talent. (In the picture above, he's the one on the left.) He played with the Beatles for years. I HAD to buy his latest CD and get it signed by him. It's just him playing the guitar; it's lovely - tunes you're familiar with; and his skill is amazing. You can check all these guys out on iTunes or probably YouTube as well.

And finally, Tommy Emmanuel.  He is THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE GUITAR PLAYER I'VE EVER SEEN AND HEARD.  What he does, seems like it would be impossible to do.  And yet, he does it effortlessly and is a great showman.  Every part of his being "lives" the music. 

If you ever get the chance to see any of these guys, do it; you won't be disappointed.  They are some of the best in the world.  They will astound you.


  1. What an adventure to see and hear these guys play!

  2. I have a Christmas cd of lawrence Juber..>I love it

  3. I've not heard of any of these people, but I am going to try and find them on Utube.
