Woot TalleySaturday, June 10, 7:30pmAn Austin music veteran of 30+ years, Woot settled in with an acoustic guitarwhen he found one of John Lennon’s acoustic guitars. Actually, he didn’t findthe guitar; it was a gift from his beautiful wife Tammy and Barbara -- bestmom-in law a man could have. And to be completely honest it isn’t technically“one of John Lennon’s guitars.” It’s an Epiphone EJ-160 John Lennon Signaturemodel. A guy can dream can’t he? He is inspired by Robert Johnson, MuddyWaters, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Big Bill Broonzey, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine,James Taylor, Keb Mo, Steve Earle and obviously John Lennon.
