Topic: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

OH, I almost forgot...Happy B-Day Bob (Tarus52)!!!!

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

That sounds fantastic Cathy. I'm very envious of the great music festivals you get over there.

Another thing you can call it Hot August Blues without any fear of the weather being S***.

Over here you'd have to call it Cold Wet and Muddy August Blues!!

Tripsy smile

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

I guess this is a not to be missed Joe opportunity, especially as it's in Cathy's back yard.

But jeez, Maryland in August. roll

*pouring sweat smilie*

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Aaargh, Cathy - how about a visit in August then?! lol

That´s a killer line-up ... especially since I heard the new Derek Trucks album today. I know you said that you didn´t like his playing too much on the cruise Cathy ... but if it sounds anything like the album, I´d love to see these guys ... and Joe and Davy. Can we add Gov´t Mule to the list and maybe Jim Suhler?! That´d be paradise. big_smile

Happy Birthday Bob!

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Is this a dream line-up or what?  How far from Baltimore is this?  Any info would be appreciated.  I smell a road trip (like I'm not already doing enough this year!)

"There's a lot of people that are in so much of a hurry to be, I guess, to be famous or that they don't want to take the time to learn to play and do all that.They'd rather just knock it down off a computer and maybe get on a game show and get famous..That's fine if that's what you want to do.

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Might as well call it " The Hottest Blues Festival on The Face of The Earth"

Unbelievable lineup. I so wish I could go. That would be cool if Patrick Sweaney showed up too.

Eva...I'm serious about that open invite. You would get a chance to have some adventures on the river too. Check out this festival the weekend before..NBT will be playing on the smaller stage... http://www.heritagemusicfest.com/tickets.html  Dangling carrots...Cathy

Cathy or Jane could better tell you, Sandy, but my guess is that it's not more than 20-30 mins from downtown Baltimore and maybe 40 from Baltimore-Washington Int'l Airport if you're thinking about flying in.

Sounds great...though it does tend to get a bit humid 'round these parts in August....I'll be there with a portable fan ;-)

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Let be clear..All my Bonabuddies are welcome. We can have a camp at my house although there's nobody to fix all that food like Geko's mom did last year in Germany. big_smile I do have central air conditioning which will be appreciated after the show I promise! Further acts TBA, so you never know who else will be there! I'll keep you posted!   Cathy

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Thats about right Carl. The fest is right off I-83, a straight shot to baltimore i usually make it in less time but it all depends on traffic.
Wow this is like my fantasy show and literally in my backyard, next hill over as the crow flies big_smile big_smile big_smile big_smile big_smile big_smile

AND ITS ON A SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

who needs air conditioning...

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

OMG I just saw the other thread. Old Man Brown - I love those guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you won't want them to stop playing...
from their site (link in thread about this fest in other artists)

Old Man Brown is based in the Baltimore area, playing original Rock, Blues, Soul and Funk that honors earlier traditions with respectful arrangements and the highest standards of musicianship.


Always sound great. woo hoo


only problem with a fest like this is i'd love to hear two hour sets from all these bands.

Cheapest is £519 per adult, so it's not looking good! Never mind I can watch the you tubes and posts on here. (Pushes bottom lip back into place)

There are a few airports around here...BWI is the closest, but there's Newark, New Jersey and Philadelphia. I am close to the Amtrak Station in Aberdeen Md. and you can get the train from the out of state airports...Even from JFK...Nothings cheap any more...but you won't have hotel charges!  smile  Cathy

Re: Joe, Derek Trucks, Old Man Brown at Hot August Blues in Md. !!!

Ok, I get the picture already. I can see some serious thought and planning coming up for this. Maybe we can arrange to fly together, Eva? wink

For sure. Get on plane in Nürnberg ... First stop: Amsterdam Schiphol - meet up with George, buy 5 boxes of Anthony Berg chocolate, get on plane again ... Second Stop: BWI airport, meet up with Cathy and buy food .... pitch camp at Cathy´s house, get to the festival and ROCK OUT! big_smile
Sounds good to me ...
I thought we´d all be falling into a deep depression once the RAH is over - now we´ve got something new to plan and count days. lol
