So much has been happening around here at Cary Morin World Headquarters. We are still in the midst of booking our West coast dates and they are coming together. I look forward to getting out of town for a sec and meeting some new folks. Back on May 26th, I played a show at the Bellvue Bean which has since become a staging area for what I understand is the largest fire in Colorado history. We try and keep up with what's going on but it changes daily. We had some evacuees over to the house on Father's Day and just keep hoping that everyone is alright and that it rains soon. There are lots of benefits popping up around town. I think I will probably be on the bill for at least one. In the mean time I will try and get up to a spot (likely the Bellvue Bean) and just play some music since I don't really have much else to offer. On May 27th I did a house concert in Berthoud Colorado, that was a blast!!! Great peeps and really good food too. Our hosts Mike and katie come by from time to time to visit or drop off music we might be interested in. Great folks for sure. It was an honor and a pleasure to play their first show of the year and hope to be an audience member for as many that will follow. Some folks we know here in Fort Collins have been evacuated from their home but before the fire started we dropped by their art gallery Canyon Spirit Gallery to play some tunes. Celeste played guitar and sang, and I played along on pedal steel. We have been doing more of that and I really have a great time doing it. It's different songs and a different guitar for me so it's always interesting, and I'm a better steel player because of it. We had so much fun at the gallery that we did another duo show at the Out Of Bounds bar on a Sunday afternoon. We play some old country tunes and other stuff that we both really like. It's a blast! On June 14th I played in the 1st room the Atoll ever played in here in Fort Collins about 22 years ago. This is the 1st time I have done it with out a band so that was an experience for me. I'm ready to do it again as often as possible! Somewhere in the past few weeks our good friends with the Dustin Pittsley Band came to town. I played pedal and guitar with them for the night. Always fun when they are around from OK. Had more fun with Better Than Bacon a few nights back as well. So much music this summer! We also did a duo gig on the street for a local org called Beet Street. They will hire local folks to play music around town on the weekends out doors. I have another coming up in the fall. My grandson Mason let me borrow his guitar for this one again. Great guy! This weekend I will be at the Colorado Brewers Fest VIP tent on Saturday and Sunday with other local songwriters. We will post all the dates and times of upcoming dates on the website today. Thanks very much for staying in touch and feel free to drop me a line anytime. I always like hearing from folks and will respond in kind. Please keep Fort Collins folks in your thoughts these days. This fire doesn't show any signs stopping. I'm working on the new CD all the while. Thanks for the read! See you soon.
