Cool Market in Cottonwood

Lovely turnout last Friday evening for the first Cottonwood Farmers Market.

We enjoyed music by The Pine Dogs - Diana and Steve Wallis. They also provided the stage and fabulous sound system - what nice folks to get to work with.

You can hear The Pine Dogs this Wednesday night (April 29) at The Post Office in the downtown mall. They do a rich mix of rockin' blues - originals and covers -- and use some unique electronics to create a full, interesting sound. Good stuff.

Craig and I got to chat with our neighbors and meet some online friends. We played our set - and got a kick out of folks singing along with "Shut Up in the Key of G."

I don't eat before I sing -- that could get ugly -- and I was hoping the tamales would still be available after our set. Oh, yes! Devoured a delicious, authentic pork tamale with salsa and sour cream. Good stuff -- from Esperanza:

Then enjoyed some old-time music the The Cactus and the Rose:

The weather couldn't have been nicer -- we've played in Cottonwood when it was 109 degrees and when the rain and wind came out of nowhere. But for this event, skies were cooperative and clear. Nice to see Cottonwood shine.

The market will return to Cottonwood every Friday, from 3 - 7.
