Our concert at the Electric Bean went very well! It was well attended with a very nice listening audience and the sound was great. This concert had special meaning for Rich, as it was in his hometown, the place where he grew up and went to elementary, middle and high school. Special thanks go out to Rich's longtime friend, Longview piano teacher Martin Kauble, who acted as our agent in Longview, setting up the concert and getting the word out to the local media and concert attendees. You can see and hear Stephen and Rich perform Rain, Rain, Rain, Mathematics, and Crashing Waves on acoustic guitar, voice and double bass, and Stephen perform Red-Tailed Hawk on cigar box guitar and voice on the first video bar to your right.

|It has become a WALKING WILLOWS custom to have local artists sit in whenever possible. In Longview, trumpet and flugelhorn player Micheal Paul was our guest musician, playing on 1 hit song, Morning Song, and Walking Willow Tree. This photo was taken by an audience member during our sound check.|
