Friday night I experienced the musicianship and charm of Ricky Scaggs and his touring band, Kentucky Thunder. We were sitting near the stage of a local roadhouse, called the Birchmere, surrounded by 500 experienced listeners and friends of bluegrass and old time country music.
Ricky is a master musician, entertainer, and devoted father and husband. He chatted with the audience about family moments, divine inspiration, and Christmas shopping. He is a last-minute shopper, meaning that he usually waits until after Christmas, when the stores are a bit quieter. When he told us how much easier it is to shop when there is less on the shelves, a quiet laughter rolled through the hall.
