This is what I call a Mediterranean music mafia photograph.
This last month has been rich in music at the Alaskan. At the onlook of it all it was pretty lonesome seeming. I fall in love with Deering & Down a little more every time they come to town. This time they brought a couple of players from Memphis: one of the best drummers I've heard and the man in the far right of the photograph is an amazing mandolin/multi-insturmentalist. The Rev Neil Down is on my left and is a self-proclaimed 'guitard-o'. He is a magic man with many layers and a real showman/poet.
Hung out till the wee hours of the morning in 305 at the Alaskan trading songs. Jonathan walked me home Tuesday morning in the wee hours and it was still light out.My neighborhood was sleeping and lovely.
