Showers over Windermere from Holbeck Lane near Troutbeck.

Riders in the Sky

December 23, 2021

Listening to a Storyteller playlist I created a while back on an early Arizona morning today (and knowing how much you all love a list) – I compiled a Dirty Dozen outlaw storytellers I’d like to invite around the camp-fire in the soon to be opened, freshly built Tonto’s rooftop bar in our Desert Dream enclave.

Here’s my Wild Bunch:

  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Tom Russell
  • John Prine
  • Robert Earl Keen
  • Bob Dylan
  • Leonard Cohen
  • Kris Kristofferson
  • Jerry Jeff Walker
  • Johnny Cash
  • Townes Van Zandt
  • Guy Clark
  • Billy the Kid (Joel that is)

Steaks on the BBQ, cold beers and fine red wine in the bar, coyotes howling, guitars playing, pianos pumping and stories humming.

What a night that would be.

Next week I’ll have to round up a list of favourite female storytellers to give the party some zing.

Tonight we ride.
