Pickin' in the Park
KIRKLAND – Augie Schilk was only hoping to get in a jam session. But when one of the members of Cooter Brown couldn't get out of work, the bassist was recruited to play a few numbers at the fifth annual Pickin' in the Park at Franklin Township Park in Kirkland on Aug. 14.
When that set ended, he was asked if he could back up two solo singers.
"They told me I was playing three songs and could go home," joked Schilk, who plays bass for Harpo's Review. "I knew a couple of them (the songs), but I never really played some of those songs before. That's what's fun about music."
"I'll start and you just catch up with me," one solo singer instructed his makeshift band. When he told them what time to play in, musician Eddie Melendez piped up.
"I don't count," Melendez said. "I just play."
