Just back from a fantastic week in far west Texas, Terlingua, to be specific, and Big Bend Nat Park. Two great nights of pickin and singin with my dear friend Butch Hancock at the famous Starlight Theater and restaurant in Terlingua ghost town. This was our first time to perform together, after knowing each other 40 plus years. We rocked the Starlight for sure. This would not have been possible without the love, support and 30 years of friendship, of my pal Becky Crutchfield. She is truly an angel on earth, and pretty good roadie/driver/road mgr, and sister in spirit. Butch and I hope to do some other things in the future, including a music float trip through Santa Elena Canyon, with Far Flung Outdoor Ctr. A big thanks to them for a great tour of the park, last Thur, weather broke just long enough, for Becky and I, her first time there, to have hreat trip with them , and our guide, Rand was outstanding. If you go to Big Bend, I strongly encourage you take a around the bend tour with these folks.
Texas tour coming up soon, All dates can be found in billhearne.com. Ill post them next week, but better to go to website. My heart goes out to all the good folks in the Llano, Junction, and Kingland, all in the hill country of Texas. The severe flooding, as devastated, those areas. Hopefully well be able to do our show at the Dadu 1891 venue in Llano, on 11/2, but do check, before coming. Got to run for now, but love to all, and look forward to seeing you soon.

Hope all is well with everyone. Some tough weather across the country, so our good thoughts for all, who have been effected. We’ve been blessed with some good rain, and now beautiful fall weather, here in Santa Fe. Very fortunate
The Michael Hearne Big Barn Dance Music Festival, was the best ever, hands down. We had a great set with just about the entire Hearne family and a couple of special guests, on stage with us for NM Rain. The weather was outstanding, and the backstage food was great. Was so good to have my two very special friends, Becky Crutchfield and Mary Alden Allard, hangin’ out with me. A little strange without Bonnie, they got me through, along with my family. Mary is a long time Barn Dancer, but first time for Becky. Came all the way from Boston, in 3.5 das, ground and air, to be there with me. I doubt if she’ll ever miss another one. God willin’, we’ll all be back for #17 on Sep 5/6/7. The highlight of the festival was hearing Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen. Both played on mine and Bonnie’s, Watching Life through a windshield CD. So happy to see them, after all these years. Got to sit in with my dear friend Tish Hinojosa, as well.
After Barndance, I headed off to Southern Alberta Canada, to visit my friends Paula and Peter Swan. They have a beautiful ranch south of Calgary, and hosted a house concert for me in nearby Longview, home of my hero Ian Tyson. Their friends, Happy and Bob, at the Lost American Gallery, in Longview, provided the venue for me. They’re great folks, and have a beautiful gallery. Toured part of the new Canadian National Music Museum. Great stuff. Calgary and surrounding area is a hotbed for music. Hope to go back next year and do more.
Next big thing, for me, is coming up on Oct 19/20. I’ll be doing a co-bill with my dear friend, Butch Hancock, in Terlingua, TX, at the famous Starlight Lounge. There is also a music festival during the day, so the town will be full of music fans. Should be one heck of a good time. I’ll will be solo, but Butch and I, will be doing some tunes together, for sure. It’s a perfect time of year to be in the Big Bend area of TX. Then, two weeks later, I’ll be headin’ to the Austin area, for 8 shows in the vicinity. Check out www.billhearne.com <www.billhearne.com> for specifics. I’ll be doing most of the shows with either, my friend David Carroll, upright bass , or my long time friend Jon Mastin, on acoustic bass guitar. I’ll rap up the tour, at Gruene hall, and my friend Jon Inmon, monster guitarist, will be joining me to make a trio for that show.
Got to go for now, so I’ll say, adios. Hope to see many of you very soon. Take care, and stay well. As always, thanks so much for your continued support and love.
Howdy! Folks, Sat 9/15—The Lost American Art Gallery, Longview, Alberta Canada, 7:30PM , SOLO Thanks to Bob and Happy, owners, for this happen, and to Paula and Peter Swan for hosting me, in their home. Should a heckuva good time The Michael Hearne Barn Dance, was the best ever. Thanks for the love shown both to Bonnie, and to me. Already looking forward to #17 on 95/6/7 next year. Big thanks to Mary Alden for the incredible coconut pie, and her love, and to Becky Crutchfield, a first timer, for hangin’ with me and driving my van. She’ll be back next year, hopefully with her daughter Francesca. Gotta run, writing this LAX, waiting on a flight to Calgary. Writing on a cell phone, is a pain for an old half blind guy, but wanted drop a line to all. Take care, and best to you all.

Hope all is well with everybody. It’s cooling off in Santa Fe, and finally some much needed moisture the last couple of weeks. I’m doing well and staying busy. The upcoming month fairly busy, with the Santa Fe Traditional Music Festival coming up on Aug 25th, at Camp Stoney. Very honored to be invited to that event. Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance coming up on Sept 6/8, which is the highlight of my year. You can get your tickets at www.bigbarndanceweekend.com <www.bigbarndanceweekend.com> . I’m not just saying this lightly, but I believe this may be the best line-up ever, period. We may set a record attendance this year. If you love singer/songwriters, plue great dancing, you should be there.
Stay well and happy, onward and upward. Hope to see you soon.
