Greg Keelor

I’ve been to a lot of shows in my life. In my top five is a show that Greg Keelor played at Lee’s Palace around the time of the release of his second solo record called Seven Songs for Jim. The band consisted of Keelor on guitar, Bryden Baird on flugelhorn, and Travis Good on guitar and fiddle. He broke the set into two. The first was the funeral, in which they played the seven songs from the record (plus a Tom Waits cover) which were written while his father was in the hospital dying. The second set was the wake, and the band played a lot of great folk and roots covers, and a few Blue Rodeo1 songs.

During the show, they played “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet,” which might just be the greatest song ever written. Fortunately I was at the show, and fortunately I met someone who was recording the show. So, I present to you that performance.
