Kelly Joe Phelps -- extraordinary Bluesman, Slide Guitarist[caption id="attachment_3489" align="alignright" width="300"] Kelly Joe Phelps[/caption] A writer at the San Diego Troubadour described guitarist and songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps as, "The Phantom Monk Of Folk- Blues," and rightly so. Over the past 17 years of recording and touring, Phelps has been talked about as much for his passionate, spirit-driven, lone musical ways as for the inventiveness of his playing and singing. Listen to a song and then you'll know you have to come. Saturday, October 26, 2013 • 8pm Tickets: $20/advance, $22/door, $10/teens 12-17, children under 12 are free with paying adult.

Peggy has been anxious to pick lavender and replenish her dried flower arrangements. I have been wanting to familiarize myself with the farms and view the gardens. The Southern Oregon Lavender Trail Festival allowed us to indulge in our desires. Lavender farming is a relatively new thing in the area. Four farms are up and running; and there are 2 additional farms starting up in 2014. The two farms that most favorably impressed us were: Lavender Fields Forever and Applegate Valley Lavender Farm. Thankfully they are the ones closest to Jacksonville! I like the idea of giving people something else to do while wine tasting -- inserting a lavender farm or two between the tasting stops.
