My first guests tonight on “Silver City Acoustic” will be singer/songwriter Don Beams along with blues-harp-player “Bobby T” and fok-rock-jazz vocalist Becky Burnell, an as-yet-unnamed, newly formed trio.
Don and Bobby T might be familiar to those watching the music scene in Silver City the past few years. Becky is a performer from northern New Mexico and relative newcomer to town.
Bobby T has played with Grammy Award winner Charlie Musslewhite and Chizmo Charles at the famed Blue Note in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
The three are currently working on Don’s first album of original music, and they’ll share with us some of those tunes and stories about their musical lives. Don’s unique guitar picking and vocals draw compliments for their sensitive and humorous storytelling.
In the second hour, my guest will be Andrew Dahl-Bredine, Silver City songwriter, singer/musician, family man, and world-traveler, who teaches children through music and nature.
Andrew is known for playing a wide variety of music from around the world, primarily South America and Africa, and playing instruments from many cultures. He has five albums, and was named “Songwriter of the Year” by the 2011 Tucson Folk Festival.
Other praise garnered by Andrew includes:
“You can’t believe the journeys he takes you on: deep into your memory, deep into your joy; deep into the spirit, the madness, and the heart of the human experience.” – James Medfield, High Desert Beat
“There’s something so foreign, so exotic and unusual in his sound, and in his lyrics; yet somehow he leaves the audience feeling so at home, so comfortable, so close…” – Nena Garcia, Acoustic Review
So turn on your radio, or pull up your laptop, and tune in for two hours of wonderful live music and conversation.
