Q:Saw you this afternoon at Tycoga Winery. Great show! Always enjoy your music. Fun to watch you and Kenny together. I would like to learn to play your song Where We Left Off. Do you use an alternate tuning for it? Also, from a previous posting, the song I have trouble hearing the lyrics on is Nickle in My Pocket. Hope to catch you again soon!

Hi Gretchen,

Glad you enjoyed the show - what a lovely venue, right? Yes, Where We Left Off is played in what's known as an Open G tuning - DGDGBD and on the CD I believe I'm playing it capo'd on the 3rd fret. If you start with an chord shape that looks like an Am7 and alternate between that and an open strum you'll have the opening strains of the song. As for the words to Nickel In My Pocket I'll work on that this week and send it as soon as I can. (I lost all my docs in a computer crash last year).
Thanks again!

Q:Lojo, we shared the stage with you at The Festival in the Clouds this year. jlmcgee. Don't know if we made it onto your radar but you were kind enough to swap cds with my wife, Lalla.

I just want you to know how much we are enjoying your music. You were head and shoulders above most of the performers in Alma, and your recording is just wonderful. Love "Bad" and your treatment of "Ring of Fire".

We wish you every success and happiness.

Hello John and Lalla,
I love swapping CDs cuz it gives me a chance to really listen to the music of my peers. Thanks for the swap - I listened to your CD on the way home - nicely produced!
It was a pleasure to meet Lalla and a pleasure to listen to your music,
~Lojo

Hi Tammie! Hope you and Steve are having fun on RAGBRAI - what a great event!
Good luck and maybe we'll see you at the end of the ride? I'm playing in DeWitt (at Tycoga Winery) on Sunday if you're sticking around.
Take care, safe travels,

Q:June 20-26 and September 2-11, 2015, I'll be in Minneapolis. Will you be performing anywhere near there then?

I first saw you perform when I lived in St Paul in 11/1993-9/1995. Now, that was a long time ago! And, you're still performing, congratulations!

Hello Karen!
You're the one in Germany, right? I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support after all these years - danke!

After reviewing my Calendar it looks like the ONLY night I"ll be performing anywhere near Minneapolis is Sept 11 in Stillwater (about 40 min east of the Twin Cities) at Charlies Irish Pub (this will be a solo show, not a Hounds of Finn show). I don't know if that will work for you seeing as how it's the last night of your stay but keep an eye on my calendar - you never know what might come up :)

Safe travels ~ Lojo

Q:From April 6 to April 17, 2015, will you be singing in the Mpls-St Paul area?

That is, I'll be there then (coming in from Germany), and it would be great to hear you sing!

Happy 2015 soon,

Karen Lunde

Ahrgh! I'll be in Mpls the weekend before - Cats Laughing is getting back together for a concert at Minicon then I head back to Iowa on Monday - rats!
Um, if you'd like to spend a leisurely 6 hour drive along the river to Galena IL I'll be playing at The Grape Escape on Saturday, April 11? Sorry, that's about the best I can do.

Wishing you a very merry new year and safe travels! ~Lojo
