I had the thought yesterday that my world is expanding and shrinking at the same time. I am spending the month of June in Spain... it started out as a sort of sabbatical... to spend time with my own thoughts... my camera... my paints... and to feel truly out of my element. All of that has already happened and I have only been here for a few short days. After I started to plot my time here we started realizing there are a few clients here in Spain that it would be fun to reach out to. So, I am splitting my time here up with some Harrelson Trumpets client meetings... the first of which are happening this weekend in Madrid.
We have two clients in Madrid with gigs this weekend... Jorge Vistral & Josep Siankope. I am going to both shows and bringing my new beautiful Harrelson Trumpet along for the ride. So, if you're reading this and you happen to be Harrelson curious, like great music and can get to Madrid you should come out!!!
Saturday, June 06 @ 10:30pm - at Bogui, Madrid w/ Jorge Vistral
Sunday, June 07 @ 7:30pm - at Espacio Ronda, Madrid w/ Joseph Siankope
I am really looking forward to meeting both of these guys and taking in some great music. I am also really excited for the train ride to Madrid. I love riding on the train... I have taken the Empire Builder from Minneapolis more times than I can count... the last time I did it alone and really loved watching the sun come up with my coffee in hand across the fields of North Dakota. I sat there in silence for hours... eventually a gentleman next to me said... see anything good. Yes, I did. About 50 deer, pheasants, old barns, tons of cattle and one adorable calf... I like watching the world wake up... it's even more fun to speed past it on a train. Plus! this is the AVE High Speed Train... which reaches top speeds of almost 200mph. All I can say is WHOA. I am in for a new experience. Speaking of new experiences... pretty much everything I have done since I've been here has been new. Last night I went to hear Pedro Javier Gonzalez play flamenco guitar at the Basilica Santa Maria del Pi... ya... never thought I would say that. It was beautiful. And, speaking of beautiful... check out Barcelona!
