Well, I did it - played a bare-nekkid solo set. Don't panic, I don't mean sans clothes, I mean sans any accompaniment at all. I know, all the guitar players and singer - songwriters are saying 'so what - I do that all the time'.

OK. But with nuttin' but a Harmonica and your boyish (or girlish) charm?

It was just an intimate little neighborhood open mic - a friendly little thang, but somehow it was a little scary. I don't have a problem with stage fright any more (not since high school), but I had serious second thoughts before I got to the mic. I played Canadian Sunset, Sugar Mama, Blue Monk, and on chrom, Summertime. It was all very well-received. I felt very encouraged after I got through it.

I highly recommend the experience.
