She’s looking forward to the Michael Hearne Big Barn Dance Music festival next week 9/10/9/12. Bonnie is definitely planning on making a cameo appearance on stage at the event, and we plan on performing “Wild Geese”, a Bill & Bonnie classic by Ian Tyson, and our talented niece, Eden Hearne and Bonnie will perform a song associated with bonnie for many years titled “Georgetown”. As per usual, Michael will join me for a couple of tunes, and I hope to get my great nephew, Travis Hearne, also a talented musician, to join me and others for “New Mexico Rain”. Looks like we’ll be going on around 4ish on Saturday afternoon. Also, Don Richmond of The Rifters, will be pinch hitting for us in place of Bob Goldstein. Can’t beat that with a stick. The city of Taos has a 10PM curfew, so be on time, things are going to run pretty tight this year. Hope a lot of you folks can make it up to Kit Carson Ste. Park for the event. Michael Martin Murphy, Junior Brown, Gary P Nunn, Chuck Pyle, Bob Livingston, etc. Of course as always, The Rifters and Michael and his SXSW trio, Zeke and Carmen, will wrap things up Saturday night, with a dance and finale. $25 tickets will be available at 7PM, for the folks who only wish to come for the dance portion of Saturday, although there will be a dance floor available the entire event for those who just can’t sit still. Also on next Thursday night, 9/10, I’ll be playing at the Red River Bluegrass Festival in Red River, NM, at 6:30PM at the Red River Community House. We’ll be kicking off the entire event which runs through Saturday night. Zeke, will be with me, as well as my longtime friend John Karl Malm on mandolin.

If you need a fine Panama hat, look no further than Milton. I’m a proud owner of two of their beautiful hats. It was a perfect afternoon and their courtyard was just right for a small gathering. DON”T MISS, THE OFFICIAL DEBUT OF MY BUDDIES, MYSTIC LIZARD at the La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda Hotel this Wed/Thu night at 7:30. This is Bob’s alter-ego Bluegrass band and they are outstanding. They’re also working up some crossover two-step and swing for the dancers. They proved, pinch hitting for me in may that you CAN dance to Bluegrass. Of course, I’ll be there as a fan hangin’ out. Very nice harmony vocals, and some great instrumental work by all four, Bob, Zeke, Bob Gray, and Ben Perea. Be there. Sunday should be fun with my friend Jim Jones and his Cowboy Way Ta rio. Jim has won numerous awards and honors in western music and has a fine relatively new CD out of contemporary western music. I sent all you good folks the flyer via email this last week. Hope you can join us. We’ll do some pickin’ together at the end. Bonnie is hangin’ another hurdle coming up on Wednesday to check her kidney functions. It’s an outpatient procedure, and we hope all goes well. At least we hope to know what’s going on, and hopefully fix it very soon. She hopes and plans to be at the big Michael Hearne “Big Barn Dance Music Fest”, coming up real soon on Sep 10/12. Don’t forget to check out, for details. Looks like the trio, Bonnie, and of course, Michael will join me, late afternoon on Saturday. The Great Don Richmond, producer of three of my CD’S and one Bill & Bonnie CD, founder of The Rifters Trio, , will join me in place of Bob this year. Not a bad substitute, I’d say.

Thanks to all who came out, and especially those who picked up my CD”S, newest and older ones as well. Café Greco is always a pleasant Sunday afternoon on their very shady and cool patio, and a lot of nice folks stopped by this afternoon for a light meal and cool drink. If you’re headin’ up to Santa Fe early for Indian Market, love to have you stop by the La Fiesta Lounge tomorrow night or Tuesday and say howdy! And enjoy the Bill Hearne. Zeke Severson will be on bass and Bob will be with me as well on all of his instruments. This week marks one year for our newest CD, “All That’s Real. I just got a full last week from Don Richmond at Howlin’ Dog Records, so if you don’t have one, think about pickin’ one up next time you see us. Bonnie’s cast has been removed, and other than readjusting to walking without the cast, is doing fairly well. She’s looking forward to the Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Music Festival. It’s just around the corner on Sep 10/12 in Taos, NM, at the Kit Carson State Park, just a couple of blocks north of the Taos Plaza. Got to to get all the information and line-up, including myself and folks like Junior Brown, Gary P Nunn, Michael Martin Murphy, The Rifters, Chuck Pyle, etc. Most likely for you hard core dancers, there will be $25 tickets available for Saturday night beginning at 7PM for the Rifters and Michael Hearne and SXSW closing dance and jam.

We’ll be pickin’ with my nephew, Michael Hearne and SXSW, making a rare public appearance these days. As many of you know, Michael has moved to Austin, Texas, so SXSW, does not get together very often. Most of their engagements are private affairs except for the SF Plaza and Michael’s Big Barn Dance Music Festival. We’ve done this before on the plaza, and it’s a really special deal. Bonnie hopes to make it down as well, but we’ll see how it goes. No doubt we’ll do some tunes together and Michael will have hand-outs with info about the Big Barn Dance on Sep 10/12. Also, I’m hopeful my good friend and co-author of “Navajo Rug, along with Ian Tyson, Tom Russell will join me for that tune on Wed.

I’m also looking forward to going back to mine and Bonnie’s former residence of Red River, this Friday for Larry Joe Taylor’s big music bash at Brandenburg Park, afternoons on Fri/Sat, and the Motherlode Saloon and Lost Love Saloon in the Lodge At Red River. We’ll be in the park at 4PM, apporx, for a 50 minute show. The chili cook-off is Sat afternoon. Lots of vendors, with food and drink and beautiful grassy park to sit or bring your own chairs, blankets, etc. Come early and catch my good friends Keith Sykes and Richard Leigh at noon at the top of the Red River Ski Area (The Tip),, (song swap) then head down to the park and catch Mike Addington and Two Dollar Horse before our set. They’re a great country dance band and my dear friends as well. Hope to see many of you soon, and please know how much I appreciate your support and love and concern for Bonnie. She’s slowly making progress on all her health issues. Have a great week and stay well. Thanks, Best To All, Bill BOOKINGS: 505-690-2514 OR
