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.

Hosting “Silver City Acoustic”

Hi Friends,

sca posterI’m happy to announce that I’m the host of a new show, “Silver City Acoustic,” on our local community radio.  The show will feature music and conversation with local and touring musicians in and around Silver City, New Mexico.

This is an exciting adventure as I’ve been thinking about something like this for a few years now.  I’ve been in touch with just a few musicians so far – this idea was launched less than a week ago! – but the response has been very positive, and I’m excited about the possibilities!

Silver City has nurtured so many fine musicians, and some of them don’t even play out!  I’m planning to bring a wide range of acoustic music to our community radio listeners – along with storytelling and conversation to get to know these interesting people.

20060114223847-745272This week, I’ll interview Jeanie McLerie and Ken Keppeler of Bayou Seco fame, and expect to learn about their Europeans gigs, their fiddle making, and some stories behind the  broad spectrum of music they play, from Cajun and cowboy to Hispanic and Tohono O’Odham!

1361288605_4515c9cdf40841051f6ed5bfeecaba642f68a61bIn the second hour, we’ll visit with touring musician and guitar virtuoso Thomas Radcliffe, on the road with music and stories to share!

“Silver City Acoustic” will air on station KURU FM – 89.1 – every Thursday evening, 6-8 pm MST.

KURU is run by the non-profit Gila-Mimbres Community Radio.  It can also be heard by streaming live or from the archives anytime at GMCR.org.   To access the archives, click “Programs” and then “Silver City Acoustic.”

So tune in your radios, pull up your laptops, and tune up to some live music and great conversation!  Join us!
