2020-03-13 Bushmaster at Clyde's Willow Creek
Bushmaster featuring Gary Brown had the pleasure of performing at Clyde's Willow Creek, Ashburn, VA on Friday 3/13/20. When other musicians have had their shows cancelled due to the virus scare, we feel blessed to have been able to perform, and thank those who worked at the venue for providing a clean environment, both for us, and for those who came out to support live music... we appreciate you!!!

I have been away from home for a month, so I hadn't gone through my mail. But I found this treasure in the pile of the usual crap; 'Dancing in the Belly of the Beast".

Thanks go out to Philip Verhaege for his review of our new CD on "Keys and Chords" ... WOW 4 STARS ...we appreciate you!!!
