Well folks, it’s been about one year since I began writing newsletters, and when I started, there really wasn’t much news to tell about Brian Hudson Incorporated. But now folks there’s something real and big about to happen up in here. Please read on so I can drop something big on y’all.
Me and Matt Harlan have been having a helluva time making music together on the Summer Ramble 2011. We've gotten to visit some great places and people.
But all things must end, and yesterday we began our southern descent, leaving Duluth to slowly ramble our way back to Texas. And although that’s kind of a sad thing for us, there’s a big show on the horizon keeping our spirits up!
On July 23rd at Flipnotics in Austin, TX, Matt Harlan and I will be joined by some great folk singers: Owen Temple and Adam Carroll. Although these guys are huge talents in their own right, that night we will get to hear them try to sing the songs of the even more talented Gary Floater. Me and ol' Harlan might even attempt a Gary song that evening.
If you aren’t familiar with the music of Gary Floater, you're sadly amongst the unfortunate many. Come get schooled by the foremost Floater scholars and help me and Matt celebrate our homecoming at Flips.
