Friends – send good thoughts to Chris Harrell who was booked to play at Upper Crust on Saturday 5/25 but took a fall exploring petroglyphs near Taos. The worst part was the crushing of his left index finger which will take quite a while to heal. We wish him all the best for a quick recovery. Jim Harlan and I will fill in for Chris at Eldorado’s Upper Crust, playing from 6:30 to 8:30, after doing a couple sets at Harvey’s & the Taproom in the Amtrak station in Lamy, starting at 4 pm. It will be a busy evening and no doubt extremely fun. Join us!
Saturday, May 25:
4pm – 6 pm at the new Taproom in the Amtrak Station in Lamy
Jim and I are really excited about playing at the brand new Chili Line Brewing Taproom in the historic Amtrak station in Lamy. Join us!
When: Saturday May 25, 4 pm to 6pm
Where: The Lamy Amtrak Station at 152 Old Lamy Trail, Lamy, NM 87540
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.

Parisian Style Ham & Cheese Baguettes
Chips Salsa & Avocado

LAST MINUTE NOTICE! Destiny Allison and Steve Ewers have kindly donated the La Tienda Eldorado Performance Space to host a free local tribute to Paul Simon, produced by Chris Harrell. After months of prep, at 7pm this evening, Saturday 3/23, about a dozen performers will take turns playing their favorite PS tunes. I get to play with about half of them, including 2 tunes with my duo partner Jim Harlan. I’m thrilled. Last fall the James Taylor tribute was beyond packed, to the point of no standing room left so you may want to show up early. Here is tonight’s line-up:
Friday evening will be sweet on Canyon Road as the galleries participate in a Holiday Block pARTy. Jim Harlan and I will play Americana tunes at Winterowd Fine Art from 4:15 – 6:45 PM. Come do an Art Walk with Farolitos and Bonfires.
Where: Winterowd Fine Art, 701 Canyon Road, Santa Fe NM 87501
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.
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.
Sunday 9/23. First things first. I am having a blast with Savor Eldorado,where neighbors enjoy local music, art & each other, in private homes every month. Please RSVP here to get more information and join us this Sunday on 9/23 from 3 – 6 pm at Susan Latham’s home. Tracy Weaver will play guitar and Rachel Arvio will show and sell her lovely jewelry. The raffle will give away a $100 Visa gift card, a $25 gift certificate to Upper Crust, and a pair of Rachel’s earrings. If you are interested in these events, please sign up for the Savor Eldorado Newsletter. I may not use my flute gig notification list to announce this every month.
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!
Pianist Joseph Salack and I enjoyed playing at a house concert in Eldorado on Sunday August 26 from 6 to 9 pm. Savor Eldorado is an organization promoting the sharing of local art and music. In the last year I’ve been asking for inspiration about how to give back to my community after working as a web designer (and lately playing music) in Eldorado, since 2001. Gila Joy Pascale has worked very hard at Savor and as she is taking a break, I am gladly jumping in. The Savor Eldorado website was my first fun task as well as organizing and performing at this first Savor event for year. Artistically we were blessed by a display of Jennifer Moore’s elegant scarves & shawls as well Maggie Mae Beyeler’s ceramic work, all available for sale at the event.
We raffled off a number of items including a $100 Visa gift card and a $25 gift card for Utopia, donated by Destiny Alison. Every (suggested) $5 donation was eligible to a raffle ticket. We earned enough for the music, the next $100 Visa gift card, and reimbursements for supplies and hosting fees. YAY!
