Here is a song that will be on our CD planned for January 2021.
What started as a comment to a friend, Jessie McDonald, that I tag her so much she must be bruised. Some how that line clicked that it was in a Dylan song; and it didn't take long I went back to a song I learned to play at a wedding and it quickly wrote itself to parody both Facebook and the stalker theme that seems to be in the original song. I always wanted Adele to cover it, but with the pandemic time changing everything Sofia Talvik had some time to make sound pretty while funny.
Our official music video of our new country classic premiered March 29th. Yes this divorced couple in their 30s are such a nice story, and he is committed not to screw it up. Jess sets the sad tone on the fiddle, and Lynn picks up harmony; but come on; this ends happy. While you might wonder if Pearl Street paid for all that product placement, one might say they did when they pulled up a free beer truck at my 60th birthday party. Pour yourself one, and enjoy a sad yet hopeful country song. It'll keep you humming it.
Take a little walk back in time! Feel July's sunshine on a farm road, and come to the family reunion. You know the faces by now, and you resemble them.
Boy you might think by the name of the piece that it might be a cover, but it’s an updated version of a song on the first cd. I thought the Bones cd should have a little intrigue if this is a murder ballad or not. I’m not saying.
Here's a pandemic recorded version of Silent Night with three guitars layered. One in key of G, one on capo 5 key of D, and the melody capo 7 in C. It's public domain, so we're giving it away for you to have fun with it. Listen to it, gather around signing to it, or use it as a layer for your own recording. Download it on Bandcamp.
Natalie Gelman was awesome but we think all house concerts are!
Our favorite cover, loved the warehouse feel we got from the 3rd floor of the Pearl Street Brewery. Thanks to Tami & Joe for allowing us to use the space, and Terry for taping us. Plus we can't thank Pete Solberg enough for the new photos that will be on the website soon.
Until I get the talent picked and a real music video taped, here's a Lucky Dog original from the Bones CD. A happy ending country classic song! This couple is starting over with a second chance, and she's looking pretty good. The pale ale on the bar is brought to you by Pearl Street Brewery, the fiddle by Pigtown Fling's Jessie McDonald, the snappy drums by Wayne Wickman, and the back up vocals by the Lynn & Kevin (orginal dogs)
For my 60th birthday I received the best present ever, the band (Pigtown Fling Stringband) I had booked for the party not only learned two of my songs, they RECORDED them for me. Here's Family Tree, both are available on our Lucky Dog bandcamp page. All proceeds go to the band. I don't think I can ever repay them for checking off a bucket list item.
Been working on this song since I heard it over the summer for the first time being busked on the plaza in Boulder by Thomas LaFond & Enion Pelta-Tiller. They had an incredible gypsy feel to the song. I had to asked afterward, who was that song by? I wouldn't share or cover it until I knew it by heart. Great story song by Tom Waits. Look up his version for a little mambo vibe version. It will be in the next setlist!
I can remember the night I decided to learn this song. It was after hearing a Christian speaker tell a heartfelt story about a prostitute. Here's Dylan's prostitute story from his Blood on the Tracks LP, and I play a little slower to emphasize the story.
Here's a sequel to Don't Screw it Up...we find the heroine will always be 21.
Oh my this is 2011 video, I've been doing this song for a while, but I love it. Deciding what songs should we pay for and put on a covers CD, it just might be this one; especially if I can get Jessie to add a fiddle.
A great folk bluegrass gathering or sending worship song used with Sunday School & camp worship. Easy key of C. The lyrics and chords are in the YouTube about section. Any use of the song we ask you for a contribution to Holmen Lutheran's Building Fund ELCA; Holmen WI
