What did you do on friday night?


So Dave and I were sitting there watching reruns of something too bland to register in my cortex, and he did what he does...switched over to the local Christian Station...Sigh...but WAIT! As I listened I heard the most amazing guitarist: Benny Prasad. I was totally blown away by this man's music and the instrument he designed, called a "bentar" - basically it is a guitar with two bongos and a 14 string harp added....he plays all over the guitar and it's amazingly beautiful.

This morning I rambled around on his website www.bennyprasad.com to find out a little bit more about him and through his YouTube links, I found him paired up with another guitar great: Phil Keaggy....OH MY LORD! So....here is my sampling for you...peace.

Benny studied in Santa Fe, NM (right up the road) and I had the pleasure two years ago of hearing Phil Keaggy in person. Peace.

I'm afraid I watched the launch night of Celebrity Big Brother over here in the UK on Friday night(blushes.) LaToya Jackson is in it. What is the world coming to ?!

I love finding new music that I love.

I read your profile. I write adult Christian fiction, but I have a tween that might fit into your target audience. I'm trying to instill my love of books into her. I haven't been quite as successful as I'm hoping and praying I'll be. Maybe one day she'll read a book without my urging her to do it. Right now I feel like she tolerates my enthusiasm.
