The Beirut Report: The Blues Returns
Happy New Years everyone!
I have returned from my trip to Beirut, which was, like me, short but sweet. I had a great time seeing family and friends. Beirut has changed so much in the last few years, and despite politics, it still is a breathtaking city.
I am from Beirut, so obviously the connection is deeper, but when you live there you will understand why people are just infatuated with the culture and lifestyle of this great city.
And whats more? I got to perform for the first time in 7 years on a Lebanese stage, singing the same ol' blues. The owner of 'Name this Bar' in Gemmayze was kind enough to have me perform with their house band, all of whom are kickass performers.
The Lebanon 'high' is still in effect, so excuse me if I feel overly happy these few days. I'll be back with more blues for 2013, so stick around, there's a lot of news!
