Two performances downtown this week!

Hello My Friends!

DSC05441 cuNo music last weekend meant that I was able to finish, with Jean, the last fencing around our house, including a gate, and two gate handles hand-crafted from oak branches.  We’re proud to show ’em off here!  Hope you all have been getting your last outdoor chores completed too ~

This week I’m happy to be performing twice.

DSC04697Wednesday, November 12, 4-7 pm, Scott vanLinge and I (duo version of the Loose Blues Band) will perform our classic blues, folk, rock and country at a SNAP* fundraising benefit at the gastronomically-famous** Alotta Gelato at 619 N Bullard (just south of 7th Street).  After a set or so, I’ll play a few solo pieces, and then Jean will join me for a short set of new material we’ve been perfecting.  So, come on downtown, get yourself a gelato, and help support this important community program.  (*SNAP is the Spay and Neuter Awareness Program.)  (**Alotta Gelato has been included in Fodor’s, Frommer’s, NY Times, and other exclusive guides, so if you haven’t been there lately, maybe you should visit!)

panorama YCCHSaturday, November 15, 2-4 pm, Scott and I (Loose Blues Band duo again) will perform at the Yankie Creek Coffee House at Texas and Yankie Streets in the arts center of historic downtown Silver City.  If you miss Wednesday, or even if you don’t, come on down and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere – comfy couches, tables and chairs, WIFI, coffees, teas, baked goods and friendly folks!  The concert, as always, is free.

Enjoy this gorgeous weather!

Video of Charlie Alfero’s “Simple Things” – about the Gila Wilderness

gila-national-forest-mogollon-mtnsYes, Charlie and I have been inspired by the Gila Wilderness to write quite a few songs about it, and here’s one.

We performed Charlie’s “Simple Things” unplugged on October 4, 2014, at Yankie Creek Coffee House.

(iPhone video by Jeff Ray.  Audio by iPhone!  A few video edits by Jean.  Dale Rucklos is sitting in on this song for the first time.)

Silver City Acoustic with Phil and Mary Brown and the Latchkey Kids!

1798535_10152637078790031_1723685138_nThis week’s guests will be, in the first hour, Phil and Mary Brown, formerly of “The Oversouls,” and in the second hour the “Latchkey Kids.”

Long-time musical heroes in Silver City, Phil and Mary Brown anchored the popular Oversouls until recently, when Phil and Mary decided to pursue a new musical sound.  They’ll play some new and original acoustic music for us, talk about the process of songwriting, their Oversouls CD, and “The April-May Project”!

We’re looking forward to hearing all about the new music flowing through!

The Latchkey Kids have been playing around town for a few years now, the band consisting of James “Skippy” Sanders, Daniel Eady, Sam Yarborough, and  Alex Hallwyler.

They have an (unusual for them) all-acoustic set planned to share with us, along with stories about how they came together and where they’re going next.

So tune in and tune up!
