Blueberry - Bellbottom Bike Accident (Twilight, 1999, The Shaz Records)
Chris met Gwen Snyder through the singer Dina Emerson in the late ’90s. He fell in love with Gwen’s quirky, original homemade solo recordings and invited Gwen into Church of Betty, where she played accordion and sang for several years. Through Chris, Gwen met Kenny Siegal, with whom she made music for years and later married. Chris appeared on several Blueberry CDs as a guest trumpeter. Gwenny and Kenny delighted in the comic quality of Chris’s bleatings on an old grade school instrument they all dubbed ‘Timmy the Trumpet’. Bellbottom Bike Accident is one of Timmy’s personal favorites.
