I am very excited that one of the books I reviewed in 2012 has been nominated for an Edgar for Best Paperback Original! The book is Whiplash River by Lou Berney, and you can find my review HERE.
Can I just say how much I appreciate Gotye? Ok, so I just did. I saw him in concert this past year and was mega-impressed with him, his drumming, his vocals, his videos, his band, Kimbra (who was touring with him), and just everything. I can’t wait for what’s next.
My favorite guitarist, Rhett Butler, will be playing with fellow fingerstyle guitarist, Adam Rafferty, at McDavid Studio at Bass Hall in Fort Worth on Friday, January 25th. If you haven’t heard Rhett yet, you are missing out. I have had the pleasure of hearing him play numerous times by himself and with his band and with some of his own guitar heroes including Billy McLaughlin and Pierre Bensusan, and twice with accordionmeister Joel Guzman. The Rhett Butler Group is working on new music, too!
Finally, I am so happy that just in the past few weeks daylight hours have already increased by almost half an hour! I am so ready for longer days and warmer weather. Happy Thursday!!
