If you've been around and paying even the slightest bit of attention in Amarillo, Texas, you're familiar with the name Hayden Pedigo. It was his, ultimately, doomed run for local office that garnered world wide attention for the artist.
Now, Hayden has taken his music to the biggest tiny stage in the country.
Recently, it was revealed that Hayden had landed on none-other than NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series.
In case you're unaware, the Tiny Desk Concert Series is exactly what it sounds like. Bands from all over the world have been featured sitting on, near, and around a tiny desk to play their music.
Hayden has joined the fold, with guitar in hand.
While I've yet to see his performance appear on the NPR website, I'm sure it's something that only Hayden can deliver. I know we're more than likely out of the corpse-paint era, but it would have been nice to see. Maybe it is there. I haven't seen the performance yet. I'll have to keep an eye on the NPR website to see when it gets uploaded.
It's nice seeing artists from Amarillo get recognition for their gifts, their talents, passion, and art. I still believe that Amarillo is a disgustingly talented town. It's unfortunate that somehow it all stays hidden. From painters and sculptors, to songwriters and performance artists, we've got it all.
Congrats to Hayden on the continued success. I hope more finds its way to you, and I can't wait to see your tiny desk concert.
