Young Man I met Page Williams through a Leisure Learning course in Houston, Texas, known as Guitar Circle. I am not sure what exactly it is we "learn" at Guitar Circle, but Page is the adept Den Mother of all who participate, making sure that email addresses and phone numbers are up to date and that we are all aware of when the new enrollment dates come back around.

"Young Man" is currently her one and only original song, which was recorded the evening of July 22 of this year at my condo on Briar Forest Drive in Houston, where a "mini-circle" was held with a few of the Guitar Circle enthusiasts. I now refer to this recorded collection of songs by Mike Yeates (see the podcast "Megans Song" on this site), Page Williams, David Britton, and John Schneider as Briar Circle.  

The photograph posted here was taken at one of the Artist's Enclave musical events in Austin, Texas. It tells a lot about this event. From left to right are:

Gary Cross - As co-producer of the Enclave Music Series he is possibly pondering the stage construction, which is nearly as hap hazardly built as the eclectic collection of buildings and hardware at the Enclave property itself. Later in the evening, Gary once again transforms himself into his alter ego "Rudy the Redneck". This phenomena generally occurs as a catalytic effect of mixing an excessive number of Shiner beers with his hard work as co-producer.

Dan Northcutt - Another  Guitar Circle member, who I hope to have a podcast posting from sometime in the future. Dan writes some wonderfully witty and sarcastic material. 

Mike Yeates - Again, see "Megans Song" in the archives of this Podcast site. Mike is also a Guitar Circle member.

Page Williams - Gutar Circle den mother, song writer and performer.

Steve Fryer - Sound engineer extraordinaire. Steve has produced at least one album with the group "Monkey on the Bed". For more info on Steve and Monkey on the Bed, go to http://cdbaby.com/cd/motb or http://www.monkeyonthebed.com/

Megan's Song Mikes Yeates tells stories of East Texas in his song writing that seem all so familiar to me. Having grown up exploring the forests of North Alabama, I felt some propinquity to the piney woods in East Texas when my family relocated to Texas in the mid 1960's. I met Mike several years ago and immediately fell in love with his lyrical style and East Texas stories. This song sample, however, was written for his daughter. It was recorded on November 8, 2003 at the Artist's Enclave in South Austin. Mike's niece (Amanda) sings with Mike on guitar and harmony vocals.

Mars

This photo of David Clary was taken at the Artist's Enclave in Austin, Texas playing along with Kevin Hollingsworth. The song Mars was written by David about the time the Mars rovers started exploring the surface of the red planet two years ago. This version of the song was captured live at the Enclave. David has a studio version of the song along with a collection of other original tunes avalable on CD. To find out more about David or his CD, contact Cactusclef Publishing at cactusclef@netzero.net or contact David directly at songsmith101@yahoo.com

Enclave Blues This song was captured in the late night hours of November 8, 2003 at the Artist's Enclave in South Austin, Texas. The Enclave series of music concerts started informally in the Spring and Fall of 2001. Since then there have been several concerts, promoting independent and unpublished songwriters and musicians (produced by Robert Lindsay Nathan in conjunction with Cactusclef Publishing). It's difficult to say who the musicians are on this track, but I suspect that Charlie Morton is on the guitar and Matt is on fiddle (Matt was an artist in resident at the time). The bass player and the drummer escape me. Enjoy this blues improvisation, by the Artist's Enclave Blues Band.

Let the Drummer Start One This tune was captured during my annual session of Austin Tequila Nights. This years participants, as performing in this improvisational blues clip were Gary Cross on Drums, Kevin Hollingsworth on Lead Guitar, and Robert Lindsay Nathan on rhythm guitar. Special thanks to Carol for photography and brother Larry for sound engineering on the Sharp minidisc recorder. Thanks also, to Charles Wakeland for the ribs. And last, but not least, thanks to Gary's alter ego "Rudy the Redneck", who blessed us with a visit after Gary's second shot of Tequila. You will hear Rudy start the track by stating it's title.
