Today I went out to Bob Dill Guitars to meet with Bob about taking over this site and all the fun and exciting things we can do with it… pictures, tutorials, how-to’s, links to related sites, video and audio clips, the latest related news…
There has been a long stretch of inactivity on the site due to the many complications of moving everything from Mosier to Hood River and so many other things, but now, WE’RE BACK, and things will be moving. So much to share! Stay tuned for more regular updates to let you know what’s what.
Friday, July 24, 2015 saw Doug McCloud & Kit Garoutte at The Pines Tasting Room in downtown Hood River. This Squrl Music concert was sold out, but the intimate setting gave everyone a good view and great listening.
The house was packed and the show was great. These two played together last summer and that was another fabulous show. Hope to see them together again soon.
Doug McCloud & Kit Garoutte at The Pines
Bluesman Doug McCloud, a two times Blues Master Award winner, takes the stage and woos the room with engaging stories and some very fine and authentic blues guitar and song.
Kit Garoutte opened, playing–among others–two Bob Dill guitars. Kit is a finger-picking genius and his harmonics will transport you.
Artichoke Music just received a new batch of five Bob Dill guitars.
