Robin and the Bluebirds Joined by Buddy Flett

We could NOT have scripted it any better than the way it naturally played out last Saturday night [June 30, 2012], in front of a moderate crowd at Crossroads Music Company & Listening Room in Winnsboro, Texas.  OK, East Texas, just a heads-up on the fact that Crossroads is doing its part]]>
