Not many performers,

that I would take the time and energy to go see, battling rush hour crowds in Denver, then trying to find a parking place around Denver Botanic Gardens, (where there aren't any) BUT, William Topley is one. His album, 'Mixed Blessing', is one of my all-time favorites, and have listened to it on many long hiways, and lonely nights away from home. He's an Englishman, but writes about New Orleans and sailing in the Caribbean. The intimate setting at the gardens, where you can bring your own picnic, was the perfect venue for his acoustic show. He played the old favorites, and introduced a couple new songs, that fit right into his special sound. All in all, a fantastic evening. Thanks, Matt.

a bit akin to Bob Seger, I think. Hurricaine Rain like Mandolin Rain by Bruce Hornsby.

You're prob'ly thinking of 'Hurricane Room', one of my favorites,that I listened to all the time while working Katrina, and after he didn't play it, I thought and hoped it would be the encore song. Nope. No encore.

yeah, that's the title....wasn't that song in a movie with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayak? What was that movie???

I think I remember 'The Thomas Crown Affair', w/Rene Russo, finishing the movie, in bed, with that song in the background.
