Ah, what a great night of music with the Fruit Bats and Sera Cahoone last week at Bottom of the Hill. It was a pedal guitar extravaganza, which is quite alright by me as it’s one of my favorite instruments. It’s been more than 3 years since the Fruit Bats have played but you would never had known. Eric D. Johnson is touring with a new band to try out some fresh material and it sounded lovely. He’s a talented singer/songwriter with such sweet songs of love and nature it’s hard not to be smitten. They were good about mixing in the old with the new to keep the crowd happy too. After countless requests for ‘The Little Acorn’, Eric finally obliged but had to do so solo because the band hadn’t learned that tune, which did surprise me. How could you not include that song in your repertoire? One of my favorites.
