Love the details.

When I moved from my parents house to Santa Barbara in 1976 I fortunately had a new roommate with a fabulous record collection. Fahey, Kottke, Old and In the Way, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, ODetta, Bromberg, Croce, Doc Watson, Grisham, Prine and others. I was blown away discovering these genres.

Then I started going to the bluegrass monthly festival in Tuckers Grove.
Additionally that whole first year out of the house, at 21 years old, I would play on the porch with a rotating half dozen of acoustic players. Most days after work playing simple songs. Marshall tucker through folk music.

I have no instore, celebrity, stage or prominent luthier acquaintances. We all played what we had. Not unlike the millions across the world that love acoustic music.
