In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Ryan Murphey Upcoming Shows In Nashville

Master musician, soulful songwriter and my friend, Ryan Murphey, was also one of our performers during the very happy happy hours of that opening Friday evening of the Nabours And Friends event for Project Healing Waters on the Caney Fork River.

That's Rye left with Pete Huttlinger that night.

Got this email a couple of days ago but I've been so busy that I'm just now getting around to posting it. Sorry Rye. (PS-I had to steal some pics from your ryepsace.)

Ryan Murphey announces two upcoming shows.

The first, on Thursday, May 7, is at the Copper Kettle, 94 Peabody Street near downtown Nashville. The Songwriter's Show begins at 7:30 p.m. The restaurant bills itself as having "great southern cooking" -- mix that with entertainment from some great singer/songwriter and it's a cool night out!

Check out Rye's Space Including some tunes!

On June 10th, Ryan will perform at the Songwriter Series at the Commodore Lounge at the Holiday Inn Vanderbilt on West End Avenue across from Centennial Park, Nashville.

Latest Rye Murphey Album, "MIRACLE STREET" Available Now!

Ryan's new album "Miracle Street" is available on Spin Box Records,
