Free Paul Simon Tribute Tonight, 3/23

ASIDE: On 4/5, and 5/3 Jim Harlan and I will be playing from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at Upper Crust in Eldorado.

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:
