Hiking in Hocking Hills

Wow! It’s been awhile since I have updated my own site. I’m always so busy working on someone else’s that I tend to neglect mine. So, let me share what we did today. Six miles hiking in Hocking Hills from Ash Cave to Cedar Falls and back. It was an extremely warm day for late February. Things are starting to turn green in places though. Spring is just around the corner!

Kim Taylor & Ruthie Foster at 20th Century Theater

Ruthie Foster

The wife and I ran up to Cincinnati yesterday evening to see two great women singer/songwriters. Our Cincinnati friend Kim Taylor who opened up for the fantastic Ruthie Foster. Kim entertained us with some new songs from her latest CD “Love’s A Dog”, some of her older stuff and a new tune that may be on her next record. Afterwards I got a chance to chat with her and get a picture.

Ruthie then came on stage and just blew the roof off the place! What a unbelievable voice! She did about 90 minutes of some new songs from her latest CD and some old goodies. Her rendition of Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire was absolutely gorgeous. Ruthie is a definite must see if you ever get a chance!

Amos Lee at the Paramount in Ashland, KY

I spent last Tuesday evening listening to singer songwriter Amos Lee. It was a great show. The acoustics at the Paramount Theater are excellent. It had me wishing that the show was being recorded. The sound was that good. He played for about two hours to a packed house. I would highly recommend seeing Amos live if you get a chance.

Here are some pics from that night.
