TUNES BY THE TRACKS ...right on the caboose of last week's spectacular show, she's racing inbound, for a Wednesday, Jan 23rd arrival at the library.
Your harried, yet hospitable hosts, Jim Clare, and Cathy McGrath welcome back another familiar Feature:


Gordon Munding," target="_blank">http:// 
He may look boyish, but Gordie has been a voice in Rochester music for quite a while.
From upstate New York, Gordon is an accomplished Blues & Roots musician, who first made a name for himself as a singer/ songwriter in the late 80s. He then became known for his unique solo style on guitar which includes elements of Blues, Swing, and Bluegrass flavors.

In 2006 Gordon founded "Son House Blues Night" as a monthly tribute to the Delta Blues giant, (discovered, living in Rochester N.Y during the late 60s); During this time he also founded "The Crawdiddies" an acoustic roots band.

Gordon has opened for many touring artists, including: Doc Watson, John Hammond Jr and local blues legend Joe Beard.

Frank DeBlase, of Rochester's City Newspaper describes Munding's style as: "He dances across old National strings with red clay overtones in the swampy air. Crisscrossing with Appalachian, Bluegrass & Delta Blues, arising from the smoke of an impending collision" (City Newspaper 2004)

Gordon continues to enjoy performing at select venues, parties and festivals, and he also teaches Delta "Bottle Neck Slide Blues" and other guitar styles at workshops and schools.

We always have fun when Gordon features, so git yerself over to the library, on Wednesday, and have fun with us.


You's our good luck, that the pesky storm forced the pickers to reschedule their scheduled dogsled tour of Alaska, so they'll be on hand Wednesday to demontstrate once again, that great music is really and truly in the ear of the beholder.

If you wanna be a MYSTERY PICKER, now's the time... stop waffling and let Cathy or Jim (moi) know, and zippity doo'll be cavorting and caterwauling like a seasoned pro post haste.
