Mon/Tue-La Fiesta Lounge, La Fonda Hotel, Santa Fe, 7:30/10:45, trio
Looking forward to the Marty Stuart concert in a few hours, at the Lensic Theater her in Santa Fe. Marty is a legendary Bluegrass country/Rockabilly artist. His band the Fabulous Superlatives is outstanding. If you have RFD channel on your television package, check out his show on Sat Nights. He is married to Country Music Hall Of Fame artist Connie Smith.
After the La Fiesta Lounge dates, I’m headed to Nashville to attend my dear friend, Jim Rooney’s 80th birthday bash at the Station Inn. Jim is the producer for mine and Bonnie’s Diamonds In The Rough CD, released in 1998 on Warner Western. This is the benchmark Bill & Bonnie CD, featuring our friends, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Tish Hinojosa. Jim also produced the Celebration Live At La Fonda CD, self-released in 2003. Jim is a highly regarded artist and producer in the country/folk, Bluegrass world. A huge to Kent and Candy Black of Black’s BBQ in Lockhart, San Marcos, and Austin, TX, and to Jim, for making this happen for me. He’s a special “cat”, and as we all know, life is short.
Thanks to so many for contributing to the Bonnie Hearne Memorial Fund at Los Alamos National Bank. I promise you the funds will be used wisely and to good ends. Thanks also, to all who have denoted thweir time, heart and energy over the pst 3 weeks and ongoing. Too many to name, but you know it’s appreciated deeply.
Got to head on down the road for now, stay well, PLEASE GET A FLU SHOT, I did, and I believe they truly work, and stay warm, wherever you are. Love to all, see you soon.
BTW, there a tribute to Bonnie at this year’s Kerrville Folk Festival on Sat June 9th. Featuring Myself and my trio, Michael Hearne and Shake Russell Trio, Tish Hinojosa, and Christine Albert and her husband Chris Gage. I’m sure there will be others as well. Should be a great night of music.
