      In honor of Dave Carter�s death 10 years ago this past month, I had the
      privilege of performing a number of Dave Carter songs at a bardic circle
      gathering in Indianapolis, IN this past weekend.


      Here is the list of the songs. There were a number of folks there who had
      never heard of Dave and it�s always wonderful to watch people fall in love
      with Dave�s songs for the first time.


      �Three Fingered Jack�

      �Happytown�

      �Love the Magician�

      �Quickdraw Southpaw�

      �Ordinary Town�

      "Preston Miller"

      �Annie�s Lover�

      �Lancelot Said�

      �Merlyn�s Lament�
      �Blue Wing�

      On "Three Fingered Jack" I played with a �double drop down D� tuning on the
      guitar, which gives the song a bit of a droning feel which I think works
      well with both the melody and the lyrics.

      My friend Daisy sang and I played guitar on "Love the Magician". This is
      her favorite Dave Carter song, which she calls her "favorite redneck hick"
      song, adding a bit of twang to the tune :)

      "Preston Miller" led to a discussion of when and where folks first learned
      the word "fop".

      "Blue Wing" is not a Dave song, but is written by Tom Russell, and is one
      of the songs Tracy sings.

      Over all, it was a lot of fun performing these songs in Dave's memory and
      keeping his music alive.
