Note: Ronny Cox is unable to appear at Cousin Andy’s this coming Friday, due to a scheduling conflict. We hope to reschedule Ronny in the not too distant future.
We are quite fortunate to have Buddy Mondlock return to Cousin Andy’s on short notice! We’ll be in the fellowship hall of The Church of The Good Shepherd.
Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith, and Janis Ian, to name just a few. You might have heard his song “The Kid” (recorded by David Wilcox, Peter, Paul, and Mary, and Cry, Cry, Cry) and maybe even sung it yourself around a campfire. Buddy draws you into his world — where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if you’re not careful, and where dreams that don’t come true still count.
Buddy’s most recent CD, “The Memory Wall,” includes a few songs dating back to his early years in Nashville, including a collaboration with Garth Brooks called “A Canary’s Song,” about a coal miner transplanted to a city slum, waking each morning to the song of the bird he brought with him from home.
“Buddy Mondlock is one of our country’s best songwriters. His approach is gentle and Zen-like, the songs unfurl like little movies and the listener is transported to some distant better place — and isn’t that waht music should be about?” — Ellis Paul
