Saturday Sessions August 19th Presents

This weeks Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions show 685 presents guest -
Crawdad - Quite a familiar face on the local blues scene, Crawdad grew up in the Ottwell area on the southside of Edmonton.

He shows great technique on all styles of harmonica's catering to a true southern blues feel through his vast knowledge of the old blues greats. His musical attributes include working with bands Three Times The Blues, being the longest standing member of The Front Porch Roots Review, a former member of the house band at The Yardbird Suite, Jimmy and The Sleepers who represented western Canada at the Memphis Blues Challenge in 2011, The Fabulous Canolatones, The Ronnie Rault band, The Blues Aliens, and his own band The Flying Crawdads.

Crawdad, along with Tommy Roschkov and Willie James Engel received a five year certificate of merit award from The Hardisty Old Folks Home for their music charity work they have kindly donated. You can catch Crawdad co-hosting at The Sunday Soul Service open stage every Sunday afternoon at The Newcastle Pub from 3-6:30. Great to have my friend Crawdad back for a visit. He will be sitting in for the whole jam. -

Advice From An Old Farmer

Advice From An Old Farmer
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Most times, it just gets down to common sense.




A roundup of bits from the web.

* A ruff ride! Canine cowboy shows off his impressive rodeo skills on a mechanical bull.

* The extraordinary life of a 91-year-old beauty queen.

Who's Going To Fly The Plane?

Who's Going To Fly
Willie and Waylon (Nelson and Jennings, respectively) famously advised “Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys,” but you probably should give serious consideration to directing them toward being pilots.

The United States is facing a commercial pilot shortage over the next two decades that is certain to drive up the pay and benefits of America’s already best-paid work groups. And that same pilot shortage threatens to limit future air travel options for consumers as airlines are forced to reduce service on, or drop some routes entirely because they won't be able to find enough pilots to cover all t he flying they want to offer and that consumers would like.
