The Horseshoe

Speaking of legendary guitar players, I had the opportunity to see Amos Garrett with Maria Muldaur at the Horseshoe. He played exquisitely, but even Amos had a little glitch with the solo on “Midnight at the Oasis”. That’s forgivable considering there’s hardly a guitar player who would even attempt it. But poor Amos was positively cringing as Maria gushed on about how lucky we were to have Amos as a Canadian and that wherever she went around the world people would always ask “Who played that guitar solo?”, etc., etc. And as she was going on and on, Amos was chain-smoking at the back of the stage till he had practically disappeared into the cloud.
