Ellis Paul this Sunday!!!

Yes, I know I already used this pic to promote our ELLIS PAUL show. But it is such a cool pic I am using it twice! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I'll be wearing my "fat jeans" all week long. Even on Sunday, when we host folk great ELLIS PAUL for his first ever Red Dragon visit. It is always tough to get a big crowd on an artist's first visit to town and this show is no exception. But we are going to have a GREAT time regardless of the size of audience. I do hope we round up a few more folks.....so I will keep working it!!! What are you doing this Sunday, Nov 27 at 7pm? GINA FORSYTH will open the show and just may play a tune of two with ELLIS PAUL, as they are old friends. Reg seats are $30, VIP seats are $40 and the show will start at 7pm (yeah, we all have to get up for work on Monday!). Drop me a note to reserve.


 

Our December schedule....

December is going to be a HUGE month at the Red Dragon. Plenty of shows.....and a lot of them are big name/big $$ shows. These expensive shows take twice as much work on my part. Contracts, deposits, agents, managers, promo folks.......they just wear me out! Most of y'all still learn about these shows from these very e-mails. Here is our December schedule:

Sat, Dec 3   GURF MORLIX   $20reg/$30VIP   ERIC DISANTO opens
Famed Austin singer, songwriter and master producer returns for the first time in five years. COLAN GRACE is my co-presenter on this......two head are better than one!

Thur, Dec 8   IAN MOORE   $20reg/$30VIP   KEITH HARRELSON opens

Manship Shows......

I promised to share our upcoming Red Dragon Songwriters Series at the Manship Theatre with you today. But I forgot it was Thanksgiving week. How about a compromise......I'll share what I have. These shows will not go on sale for a few weeks, but it is a good opportunity to mark off some dates on your calendar. Along with these six shows, we are putting the finishing touches on three more. It is going to be our biggest Manship season since our first! Set these dates aside!!

3/3 April Verch
While Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, mandolin, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion.

One might suspect a performer with as many talents as Verch would pause to take a breath, or need to somewhat compartmentalize her skills during a live performance. But on stage, Verch is almost superhuman, flawlessly intertwining and overlapping different performative elements. She stepdances while fiddling. She sings while stepdancing. Sometimes she sings, steps and fiddles all at once, with apparent ease and precision. Verch is - as they say - a triple threat in performance, her live show a beautiful companion to her music: versatile, robust, and masterfully executed.

Northport N.Y. - M.C. Records is thrilled to announce that genre busting singer/songwriter, New Orleans based Dayna Kurtz will perform on the syndicated radio program eTown on May 3. She will share the stage with folk/bluesman Eric Bibb. Scroll down for all of Dayna's tour dates in the U.S. and Europe.

Dayna has always had fans from some of the most amazing songwriters including Bonnie Raitt and duet partner, Nora Jones. Now add Madeleine Peyroux to list. Here's what she said about "Rise And Fall."

It is great to hear an amazing voice but indescribable to hear an amazing soul. Thus this record and Dayna Kurtz are indescribable. I’m grateful for the discovery of a new old friend. - Madeleine Peyroux

Kurtz has achieved such distinctions as being named Female Songwriter of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters.  Norah Jones (with whom she later recorded a duet) and Bonnie Raitt have raved about her in interviews, she's performed on such high-profile radio shows as World Cafe, Mountain Stage and NPR's Morning Edition, and her singing was featured in a widely seen TV commercial for a prominent American hotel chain.

NASHVILLE/NEW ORLEANS CONNECTION

Les Kerr has a new blog about the musical connection between Nashville and New Orleans. From Louis Armstrong’s collaboration with Jimmie Rodgers to Del McCoury playing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the connection continues at:

http://leskerr.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/the-nashville-new-orleans-musical-connection/

==========================================================

==========================================================

"Though it's impossible to pinpoint a particular moment when immigrants began inventing American music, a dramatic turning point surely occurred in 1804, the year a young nation made the Louisiana Purchase. President Thomas Jefferson sought to buy from the French just the city of New Orleans, because of its crucial value as a port. But a cash-strapped Napoleon sold the entire, still-uncharted Louisiana Territory for $15 million — roughly 4 cents an acre.  In a single stroke, America became a thrilling, noisy eruption of sound."

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BREATHE SECONDHAND SMOKE AT WORK.  WHY SHOULD I?
 
"I have been affected by secondhand smoke.  I remember one night I was playing in a club and I went to hit a high note and I almost blacked out on stage.  I had to hold the microphone to keep from falling down. There was so much smoke in the place that it had a negative impact on my singing."

QUAKER BENEDICTION

When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
   To find the lost,
   To heal the broken,
   To feed the hungry,
   To release the prisoner,
   To rebuild the nations,
   To bring peace among brothers,
   To make music in the heart.
