Enjoy!
 
I learned this old song from a friend who passed away this week. The clip comes from a Scottish Festival in Dallas last May ... my son Jaime joins me on octave mandolin.

I hope you'll give it a listen. Thanks

Old souls recalled times when they were children, and the Astrodome was like nothing anyone had ever seen. Houstonians queued for almost a mile to get a peek inside, and they remembered when the dusty old stadium was a glistening wonder. The architectural marvel may have faded with modernity, but the experiences from its early days live on in local hearts.
