Live recording Tara Hill Blues night

I always bring my portable H4N to record my performances. I use mostly for my own archives. Since I'm taking a break I thought you'd enjoy hearing this performance of mine at Tara Hill Tavern. thanks to Sid Moskowitz for putting together these gigs.

writing a short bio

Today’s thought. Heard on the radio that Hemingway was once asked to write a story in 6 words. His response: For sale, baby shoes, never worn.

Another author added: You called, I answered, wrong number.

Today I’m trying to write a bio, so people can know who I am as they weave through the web waters and come across me. How can I quickly say who I am, what I’ve done, were I’ve been and where I want to go? If I want to talk about all the places I’ve performed in the world, or the crazy eclectic experiences I’ve known, how do I convey it in a concise form? So far I’ve come up with this line.

Cathy’s main guitars a ‘Tokai Stratocaster’ brought back from Japan in 1983 and her ‘Guild Songbird’ acquired in 1990 could tell stories of recordings and performances, and world travel. (too long)…

How about:

My well traveled musical road as witnessed by my two guitars, tell stories of recordings and performances, and world travel.

Or better yet:

My guitars tell stories of recordings and performances, and world travel. (and ironically not many broken strings).
