Big news for Bill and Michael Hearne fans. Michael Hearne, my nephew, many of you on this list need no introduction to him, will be joining me as special guest and pinch-hitter for our long time multi-instrumentalist, Bob Goldstein, for two of my first three Texas dates. The first being 11/3 at Tavern On Main, Buda Texas, 8/10PM. It also just happens to be Michael’s 62nd birthday, so come on out and let’s celebrate with him. We’ll do some tunes from our Hearne Family Album, and with Zeke on bass, we’ll have 2/3rds of the former SXSW trio. Michael will also join us at Gruene Hall, New Braunfels on the Sun 11/5 from 12/4PM as well. This will be special, and a rare occurrence for sure. We will certainly miss Bob for the tour, but glad Michael could help out on short notice. For all the dates, check out www.billhearne.com. Take care, and look forward to seeing you at all our shows, and especially in Texas.
BTW, we’ll be at the La Fiesta Lounge, here in Santa Fe, this Mon/Tue, with our new trio member David Thom. David is joining us a little sooner than anticipated, but I know he’s going to do a great job. Our first two get together sessions have gone very well. He’ll join us for the second half of our Texas swing. Great vocals, mandolin, and flatpicking guitarist.
