Moments when time stands still

I have seen the David.
The Mona Lisa, too.
And I have heard Guy Clark and Verlon Thompson
Sing the lonesome Dublin Blues.

There are moments in your life when time stands still.

I had one of those moments tonight  at Music City Texas in Linden, when Guy Clark hit that first lick of Dublin Blues. Shaking his hand and thanking him for so many years of good music was another.

Here's a link to a 2008 performance of Dublin Blues at the UT Student Union Ballroom.



The evening's bonus was hearing Verlon do The Ballad of String Bean and Estelle. Here's a clip of him and Shawn Camp doing it.


Northeast Texas is so lucky to have a place like Music City Texas where great songwriters can play to a full house of appreciative listeners who really get it.

Robert Earl Keen will be there Nov. 20.  Here's a link to their site.
