Thinking of Bob Brozman And His Gift of Music

April 25, 2013

Bob Brozman
Bob Brozman, steel-guitar innovator and ethnomusicologist was from Santa Cruz, CA died today at home. He got his start playing on the streets of Santa Cruz. He was 59.

Bob Brozman was a legend in the world of blues and roots music. He integrated styles from all around the world into his music. Bob Brozman was one of Santa Cruz’s most beloved musical figures. His bold playing style was unmistakable, and his banter with the audience at his live shows gave him the opportunity not just to entertain with his sharp wit, but also challenge core assumptions about the function of rhythm and sound. He will be missed. We thank him for his gift of music.

April 6, 2013

On November 17, 2011, one of the greatest influences on Texas music left us for the distant shores. We remember the times we travelled with Joe Gracey on his long and courageous journey with Cancer. We feel so honoured to have shared the journey with such a person. He was indeed a friend of everyone at the Flying Horse Co. He will be missed in so many ways. Thank you Joe, you have made us Rich on The Journey.

Thinking of Stompin’ Tom Connors Today

March 6, 2013

Canadian singer songwriter and country folk legend Stompin’ Tom Connors died Wednesday at age 77.   Just days before he ide, Stompin’ Tom wrote a letter to his many fans.  He wanted this letter to be published after his death. Here is a copy of the letter that was published on Stompin’ Tom’s official website.


Hello friends, I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin’ Tom.

It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.

I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.

I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done.


Your Friend always,

Stompin’ Tom Connors
