Ah Charlie... I never met him, but I knew people who knew him and I've been doing his songs since the 1970's. I used to joke that if I ever got to meet him I'd shoot him for writing Devil Went Down to Georgia! I get asked for it all the time, but you need a rehearsed band to play it, there's actually very little fiddle in the tune. It's an elaborate band number which requires rehearsals and I never had a band of my own that would rehearse. He was a Legend for sure and lots of people don't realize how versatile he actually was. Not only Writing and Performing but producing other peoples recordings and doing tons of Session work.
Unfortunately, because of Covid-19 this has been postponed until a later time, but please read and keep it in mind!
Certainly there's been some over lap and redundancy over the years between many groups and organizations nationwide. I helped launch the AFM Local 1000 way back in 1991 for instance. No matter what you think of the AFM or any of the others, The Music Industry Task Force seems to be the most well organized effort for us to get something going in this town. Please consider supporting their effort. The Film Office for instance has brought TWO different film productions to our little town of Royersford/Limerick here across the river with The Visit and Lovely Bones. The Music Industry Task Force can help make Musical things like that happen in and around Philadelphia too.
Ted's Trio will make a rare appearance at Fitzwater Station Sunday May 10th 4pm-8pm. Join us in the Grove for food and drinks and some laid back tunes by Ted, Ric and Bob. Bring a Lawn Chair, Blanket, to sit on. Even your Dog is welcome.
Things seem to be fixed with the music downloads in the General Store. Let us know if you have any problems.

Ted is finally working on some new recordings. Stay tuned...
