A good friend and local musician who originally came from Baton Rouge, LA asked a bunch of us to play a fundraiser for people in her community hurt by all the recent floods. We raised about $800 playing in a tiny coffee shop in my hometown. My bluegrass band, Crossties played a set, Jamie (the organizer) and one of her bandmates played, an old time group fronted by the nicest 88 year-old guy you'll every meet, and a duo of good friends playing original music. Here's our set (we were joined by our original lead singer on the last 4 tunes). The sound was really good. I just played through a single mic for guitar and vocals (a sweet Neumann TLM 103). I love playing truly unplugged, especially with nice mics and someone who knows how to run them.
We played:
Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burnin'
Cassidy
Walkin' After Midnight
San Francisco Bay Blues
Uncle John's Band
Queen Jane Approximately (joined by the proprietors' two small children on drums :-) )
Ripple/Brokedown Palace
