Young Virginia Squires with Rickie Simpkins

Here’s a smokin’ version of Free Wheelin’ by the Virginia Squires in the early ’80’s.  Band members included Rickie Simpkins on Mando.  Later Rickie was to record fiddle with us on Blue Angel’s 1st and only CD “Dance a Little Closer”

We had a blast recording with, hangin’ out with and performing with Rickie and his brother Ronnie Simpkins at the 1st and 2nd Wing’s and Strings festival’s in Florida.  What a nice guy and amazing musician.

Listen to cuts from the Blue Angel CD on my myspace page at and on Victoria’s page at  (Note: be careful on Mypace it’s virus prone). 

If you’d like to purchase a copy of Blue Angel’s “Dance a Little Closer”, I’ll have them at the next MRBA jam on Jan 9 at Ruby’s Inn.
