Local and friendly. The Chili Line Brewing Company brews all of their beer on a one barrel system at their Downtown Santa Fe Location less than a block down from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. The second location is located adjacent to the Lamy Amtrak Station in Lamy, New Mexico.  Laid back and easy going, they brew smoked beer that is balanced and will please a wide range of beer drinkers.  If you like small batch local handcrafted beer — they are the brewery for you.

chris harrell hopeSunday 11/18/2018, 3 – 6 pm

  • I played with Chris Harrell at a very fun Savor Eldorado event. I sat in with him at Upper Crust a couple times and had a ton of fun. Everybody loves Chris’s spirit and huge repertoire of Americana and originals. I’ve asked him to do a set of his Santa Fe/Lamy/Eldorado tunes.
  • Evie Gauthier opened her home and share her lovely jewelry and wearable art. As president of the Eldorado Arts and Crafts Association (which produces one of the largest studio tours in the state), Evie is well-connected with local artists and welcomed Savor founder Gila Joy Pascal and Kim Crickard to share the spotlight. RSVP and see the artwork here >>.
  • RAFFLE: Every $10 suggested donation got 2 raffle tickets, eligible to win a $100 bill. The drawing was held at about 5:30 pm.

Upper Crust Eldorado Gig Fri. 11/2

A fun music weekend in Eldorado! This Friday, 11/2 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm I will jam to some Americana tunes and originals at the Upper Crust in Eldorado with Jim Harlan who is a very talented and fun singer/songwriter/guitarist. You can hear a sample of our music here. On Saturday at 7 pm Chris Harrell is producing a James Taylor tribute show at the Performance Space at La Tienda Eldorado. I’ll be playing on some of my favorites, along with local players and singers. Very fun. Sunday I’ll be part of the audience for local youth musicians at 1:30 at the Performance Space. Lisa Carman has taught many of our adult and young musicians. She’s back visiting from her recent move to Bozeman MT. Her adult students will perform at 5pm Sunday. I would like to expand Savor Eldorado from the “sea of silver” out here on the “white res”, to younger and older elder musicians and artists, so Sunday I’m scouting for young talent. I would also like to get a county van to pick up elders who don’t drive and bring them to Savor events. All ideas are welcome.

Friday 11/2. Playing with Jim Harlan at Upper Crust Pizza in Eldorado, 5:30 – 8:30 pm. More info soon.

Saturday 11/3. This is early notice but save the date for a James Taylor tribute evening with many singers and players at the Performance Space in Eldorado on November 3.

Yesterday, after noticing my shadow while singing and riding my ebike, I spontaneously held up my iPhone and recorded my floating shadow and a bit of JT. I love to sing (so to speak) while I ride and probably shouldn’t expose it here but friends are loving it on Facebook and the joy of biking is something to share!

Singer/songwriter/jammer Wanted!

In my ongoing journey of musical self-discovery I am veering in another direction for gigging. I have explored jazz, Americana and pure improv and now am moving towards the genre of singer/songwriter collaboration. I have done this before but never with someone who loves to jam. I enjoy singing harmonies and improvising. I love songs that leave people uplifted. So I’m calling out to the universe for an uplifting singer/songwriter who would like to jam with flute and add vocal harmonies. Guitar or piano are fine. IS THAT YOU? Do you know someone? Contact me!

I’m also available to record tracks remotely. > >
