“Although I am inherently suspicious regarding any so-called “buzz” that surrounds a new artist, the word of mouth about Pat Wictor is more than justified when you listen to the man. He’s a master at the lap-style slide guitar, has a haunting voice, and showcases an eclectic selection of songs on his CDs.” –Charlie Backfish, Sunday Street Program, WUSB 99.FM, Stony Brook, NY

March Our Times Coffeehouse has Friction Farm on the Third Friday March 19!

I have included other listings at the end of the Email.

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ ” Matthew 25:34-40
