Tunes for Turtles

Ralph and I played a set at the turtle pond this afternoon. It was a gorgeous, sunny, 85-degree day and all the turtles came out, along with a bunch of friends from around the UT-Austin campus. Carlo snapped a great set of reflections in the water, presented here, upside down.

We opened with one of my songs, I Can See You. Check out all the background noises: birds, planes, bells, trucks… the hum of the buildings and the buzz of the Friday afternoon exodus was our backdrop.

We closed with a cover of Cat Stevens’s If You Want To Sing Out Sing Out:

  1. Looks and sounds great! I think one of the turtles was bobbing her head along to the beat. 🙂

  2. Thanks! Glad to hear it because the first thing that happened when I strummed my guitar was two turtles dove off the stick into the water. Oh no, I thought! Turtles don’t like acoustic guitar?! Maybe the old folks just needed to clear some space for the young’uns in the front row!
