Session Date: 12/7/15
Location: Abandoned Missile Silo, Greeley, CO
Meet John Major Jenkins. John is a man who wears many hats. Among many other things, he is a very accomplished author/poet, a songwriter, and a scholar on Mayan Cosmology. John has published many books on a multitude of subjects, and has been featured in numerous historical documentaries and TV series. Over the years, his studies and research of the ancient Maya have taken him through much of Mexico and Central America. I was lucky enough to see one of his incredible vintage printing presses, which he was glad to give me a demonstration. What a machine! Through all of these feats, he is nothing but humble.
John was generous enough to play a few songs and read a few of his poems in front of majestic Longs Peak (which can be seen in the background of this session. Afterwards we enjoyed an array of tasty beers at High Hops brewery/hop farm in Windsor, CO.
