Tonight was the Third Thursday art and music walk downtown. I was working on projects but thought I’d pop down for a bit. Then I kept seeing so many posts on Facebook about David Vidal, the musician playing at Smith’s Market, that I decided I had to go down and hear him. I’m so glad I did.
David Vidal lives in California, but made a stop in Hutchinson tonight to play at Third Thursday. He was amazing! He plays his own style of blues/Americana in a unique way. Yes, that is a shot glass in his hand.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about him. If you want to hear music that tells the truth of pain and of joy, you want to hear David Vidal. His voice, guitar, and style transport you to another place. Don’t miss him if he’s anywhere in your area.
Ordinarily on Third Thursday I end up visiting with people and never leave the first place I go. Generally, that’s Gallery 7, but I’m glad I varied the pattern tonight and went to Smith’s. I could not tear myself away from Mr. Vidal. Really wonderful music.
He’s playing Friday night at Jillian’s Italian Restaurant before he leaves for other engagements. I’m sure it will be wonderful.
One of the things I love about Third Thursday is this sort of thing – David Vidal, formerly at the Viper Room in Hollywood, now in downtown Hutchinson. Thank you, Jennifer Randall, for making such wonderful things happen.
Going to Third Thursday always makes me want to be in my art studio. Wish I could find more hours in the days and nights..
