"Diamond" Jim Hewitt is a musician, music producer, and web applications developer from Oracle, Arizona. He periodically sends e-mails announcing upcoming gigs. The last one included a promo of his Tucson Folk Festival appearance, and it ended with admonition, "Be there or be trapezoidal!"
How could I refuse an invitation like that?
Jim was playing with the Blue Prairie Dogs, a group that has been together for around 15 years. The Dogs play family-friendly Western music, and they filled the "house" at the Folk Festival’s outdoor Museum of Art Stage.
