Great news about Jackson Browne, a long time Gibson player...

Jackson Browne Honored for Lifetime Achievement

July 8, 2014
Jackson Browne has been selected to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. He’ll join honorees Loretta Lynn, Flaco Jiménez and Taj Mahal at the association’s 13th Annual Honors and Awards ceremony on September 17 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
 
Browne will receive the "Spirit of Americana Award, Free Speech in Music" in honor of his songs, performances and efforts on behalf of humanitarian and environmental causes. In his career, Browne has used his music to galvanize supporters of clean energy and challenge U.S. foreign policy, and he’s performed on behalf of many causes, including Farm Aid, Amnesty International and MoveOn.org's Vote for Change campaign. Writing in an op-ed for the U.K. Daily Mail, Browne said of his music and activism, “On a night when I was singing my most personal reflections on life, I wanted to bring up the life of the planet.”
 
Loretta Lynn will receive a "Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting." Born to a poor coal-mining family in Kentucky, Lynn became one of the most pivotal and admired women in American music. Her music was unprecedented for its candor in country music, and a string of hits in the Sixties and Seventies — such as “The Pill,” “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)” and “Rated “X” — forced country music and its fans to confront sexism and double standards.
 
Taj Mahal will be honored with for "Lifetime Achievement in Performance." Raised in a musical family and steeped in jazz and R&B, his unique take on traditional music has always had a spiritual element. He took his stage name around 1960 and pursued folk and blues. In the early Sixties he formed the Rising Sons with Ry Cooder and went on to work with the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Etta James, Ali Farka Toure and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band among many others.
 
Flaco Jiménez will be honored with the "Lifetime Achievement Award as an Instrumentalist." The most accomplished and in-demand conjunto tejano accordion player of all time, the San Antonio–born musician has collaborated with dozens of legends, spreading one of the world’s great musical genres into unexpected places.
 
The 15th annual Americana Music Festival & Conference, presented by Nissan, will take place September 17–21 in Nashville, kicked off by the 13th Annual Americana Honors & Awards Show on September 17 at the historic Ryman Auditorium. Tickets for the Honors & Awards are only available with the purchase of a conference registration. For more information, visit www.americanamusic.org.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Jimmy is 23 and I just turned 70.  When we played at the Greenbank Folk Club, the woman who introduced us said, "This next band has a 45 year age span."  I hadn't really thought of it till then.  Music seems to span the generations.

Jim, your bud plays that tune well. Really liked their arrangement and performance. Now, the only thing I would change - move his keys to the back pocket to keep them from scratching his new old guitar. ;-). Townes made proud!

If you click on the "Jimmy plays Townes" link, it should take you to Youtube.

Jimmy plays Townes

Here's my friend Jimmy Bowskill, the fiddle player in our jug band, showing off his new (to him) old J-45.

My J100 is my favorite too and my main stage guitar. I have a Gibson J160e with a solid top and a P100 stacked humbucker )unlike the original) in it that I special ordered from Montana in 2004, that's my backup stage guitar. I see you also have a Guild JF 30 12 string, my stage 12 is a 1980 guild JF212XL! I also have a guild JF30 6 string that I use tuned down a while step!

Yes my J-100 XTRA I bought new in 1996.  Between the J-100 and J-185, they are my favorite guitars.
