Dustin Hamman returns tonight to his hometown Silver City and “Silver City Acoustic” at the end of his soundtrack-promoting tour, just as he visited the show to kick off the national tour last February.

Besides sharing some of his extraordinary music, he’ll share stories about how he and his music were selected, his process of creating the movie soundtrack, his experiences as an actor in the film, about the tour, and the two, live soundtrack performances and Beneath the Harvest Sky movie screenings that will take place this Friday and Saturday at the Pinos Altos Opera House.

Her debut album-release party will be this Friday at the Little Toad Creek Inn Brewery & Distillery in Silver City.

Silver City Acoustic / Dustin Hamman

dustin hammanDustin Hamman, recently here from Portland, may be a little-known musician in town, but not for long, as he’ll soon kick off a national tour for the months of March and April.  The tour will promote the music he wrote for a film, “Beneath the Harvest Sky,” as well as two other albums of original music.  The tour (as Run On Sentence with Dan Galucki) begins here in Silver City at the Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery downtown, Saturday, March 1.  He’s our guest in the second hour.

Music columnist Claire Blaustein of NPR wrote of Dustin, “Hamman’s visions of folk music are realized with rich imagery and entrancing instrumentation, as he crafts vivid story lines and long strings of compelling narration.”

In the first hour, we visit with Douglas Francisco, who’ll open for Dustin here in Silver City and continue on with  the tour.  Douglas Francisco plays “haunting lap steel guitar, drawing from blues, country, jazz and gypsy music.”

So tune in and tune up!  KURU 89.1 FM, Thursday 6-8 pm (or a little later, after the two short shows)
