1. From the CD "Laguna Lights" by the Burchfield Brothers

    Song writer, virtuoso guitarist, Doyle Dykes captured the spirit of Laguna Beach, California while commemorating local guitar builder, Kirk Sand. Doyle wrote "Laguna Sand" after he received a handmade guitar from Kirk.

    The Burchfield Brothers come to southern California often not only to visit Kirk, but to experience a personal retreat in this quiet, oceanside town.

    Over the years we've discovered favorite cafes, art shops and parks within walking distance of Laguna Beach. This cover photo was taken on my cell phone at Heisler Park while walking from our motel (Pacific Edge) to Kirk's Guitar Shoppe on North Pacific Coast Highway.

    The other photos in this video were taken along the way as we passed through Texas and Branson, Missouri. Some during a concert, others just fellowshipping with friends and relatives.

    Back in Nashville we recreated the "Laguna Lights" CD by filming the sessions at Watershed Recording Studio. Friend and photographer "Mark Norman Murphy" took the photos of all the musicians.

  2. From the CD "Laguna Lights"

    This tune was written while staying near the California coast. I often saw ominous clouds on the Pacific horizon that seemed to pass safely by. Coastal towns are so accustomed to these distant storms, they rarely stop normal activity. A rather carefree "Quiet Storm" with a light Latin feel, portrays a sleepy sea side village that knows whether or not a storm poses any real danger.

After creating the "Laguna Lights" CD in 2007, the Burchfield Brothers came back in 2012 to Watershed Recording Studio (Brentwood, TN) to film many of the same musicians playing the songs. In a way it was like a reunion for some of these players. Jeff Taylor (piano) along with the brothers started out at Opryland Theme Park in Nashville nearly 30 years ago, and the friendships have continued.

Jon and Ben, who make up the Burchfield Brothers duo, have found what they call a "touring oasis" in different parts of the country. It's in these places they can stop for 2 or 3 days and experience a personal retreat.
Included are:
Gatlinburg, TN
Leavenworth, WA
Manitou Springs, CO
Macinaw Island, MI
Sundance, Utah to name a few. But regular visits to the California coast inspired this full length CD to focus mostly on Laguna Beach.
