Open mic — SadieDey’s Cafe: “I’ll Press On”

Not a big turnout at SadieDey’s Cafe, but a great venue for future open mics. I got to try out a lot of material before a friendly crowd — five, counting two who bought coffee — and liked the acoustics. Misty read a poem. Drew Pearce, the organizer (Entire Productions), played two songs, demonstrating real craft. The featured performer was Paul Manousos (website). He drew a bigger crowd and played a masterful set. It really is amazing how many good performers there are, whom we don’t hear on the radio. You should check out Paul’s site.

Here’s a list of songs I played, originals unless otherwise indicated:

1. Fortress
2. I For You
4. I’ll Press On
5. I Need You
6. Peacemakers
7. Blowin’ in the Wind (Dylan)
8. Ring of Fire (Cash)
9. Folsom Prison Blues (Cash)
10. Highways Heading Home
