Choral society shines in three-quarter time
Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 — Anybody who knows me knows I’m a staunch, born-again guitar player, and I will make no apology for my obvious musical preferences. I’m a proud, native-born American who toddled my way across central Texas, so I’ve always enjoyed Americana music with its guitar-driven folk, blues and country influences. Hey, I can even handle a little dash of pop now and then. Since I hear confession is good for the soul, I should also acknowledge my immense appreciation for some British Invasion stuff, and my uncompromising, undying and uncontrollable fetish for the heavily compressed jangly noises that erupt from a Rickenbacker 12-string. Think of the Byrds or Tom Petty — that’s the ear candy I’m mumbling about.
