The song that has been on my brain the most this week:
- “The Love I Used to Give,” Horseshoe Road, from their 2008 album “Reel-to-Reel.”
I spent most of this afternoon hanging out with fiddler Kyle Dillingham, guitarist Brad Benge and bassist Brent Saulsbury of Oklahoma City-based acoustic band Horseshoe Road. They were kind enough to put on a special performance today in the Paseo Arts District for me, Oklahoman photographer Paul Hellstern, videographer Kyle Roberts and a few other lucky people who wandered into the Adelante! Studio and Gallery.
Dillingham’s mother, Diane, is a painter who has created 14 artworks to accompany the 14 songs on “Reel-to-Reel.” The paintings will be shown at an exhibit titled “14 Songs, 14 Paintings: Reel-t0-Reel - See It, Hear It, Feel It” opening next week at Adelante!
Paul, Kyle and I will be bringing you lots of information on the show next week. But until then, I know this lovely, folksy brokenheart ballad - and the vividly colored abstract painting Diane Dillingham painted to go with it - will be in my head.
