Howdy folks, it’s Ryan Koenig here and it’s that time again… the last Saturday of the year is approaching.
2019 has been another long haul on the road of life. First the “end of an era” as Matt Meyer put it, and then the start of a new one. I’m still seeing how far I can go, sometimes wishing I hadn’t gone so far and often longing to go a bit farther. Remembering to look back along the road of life is often easy to forget, and a lot has changed. New friends, new music, a new lifestyle and thus a new mindset.
This year I’ve been making many recording appearances including LeAnn Fisher’s “Better Off Alone”, Opera Bell Band’s “Bell-Slide” and The Native Sons’ “Fringe”. The main portion of this annual Focal Point show will be the two bands I’ve recorded the most with: The New Missouri Fox Hunters followed by Ryan Koenig and the Goldenrods. The New Missouri Fox Hunters’ record is finished and will come out in 2020.
