Nothing beats an evening with good friends and great music and last Friday night was no exception. I was attending the Ozark Creative Writers conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Buddy Case http://www.buddycase.com/bionew.html
was our featured entertainment for Friday evening. Man, if you’ve never heard this man perform you are missing out on life.
Whether he is solely picking an instrumental on his guitar or singing along, his music is pure magic. Not only is he one of the most accomplished pickers of his time but he writes songs about the everyday things, turning them into a special event you want to experience.
His most recent CD, Citizen of the World http://www.buddycase.com/musicnew.html is a showcase of some of the best music I’ve ever heard Buddy perform. Whether he’s singing Ghost of Gettysburg or a remake of Georgia On My Mind, there isn’t a tune on this album to disappoint you. If you’re getting in the holiday spirit, check out his Christmas album while you’re on his music site. White Christmas is beautifully done as only Buddy can pick it.
And when it comes to performing, Buddy knows how to do it right. He and his wife, Karen, have built their home around their passion for sharing his talent as well as that of musical friends they’ve made along the way. The Loft concerts bring in some of the best mix of true country and blues players for a weekend of picking and performing. With plenty of food and good times to share and any monies raised go to the Big Creek Ranch where he teaches guitar lessons for a new generation of musicians.
Stop by Buddy’s website and say hi, or next time you’re down Enola, AR way look him up. It will be the best musical time you’ve ever experienced.
