Good fellas: We were lucky and got tickets for the late shift at the @bluebirdcafetn It’s an intimate club that presents the songwriters behind great hits. On the left is the night’s host Gary Nicholson. He played with or wrote songs for stars like Willie Nelson, Ringo Starr and B.B. King. In the middle sits Donnie Fritts who was Kris Kristofferson’s keyboardist for over forty years and wrote songs for Jerry Lee Lewis. To the right (not visible) is Colin Linden, sideman of Bruce Cockburn and tour guitarist for Bob Dylan. And the man in the beige shirt is Dan Penn, a fantastic soul singer who worked with Aretha Franklin. It was an amazing show. These guys are legends - and exceptionally charming.
