Mon/Tue-La Fiesta Lounge, La Fonda Hotel, Santa Fe, 7:30P
Had a great trip and concert at Lake Vallecito near Bayfield Colorado last night. I think about 90% of the folks were either from Texas or Oklahoma. Certainly the kind of folks, being from Texas, that I feel a kin to, and enjoy playing for. We’re back now, preparing for the biggest week of the year, here in Santa Fe, Indian Market week. I’m sure the La Fonda and La Fiesta Lounge will be packed this week, and I’m looking forward to playing both tomorrow and Tuesday nights, as usual.
The 3rd annual New Mexico Music Foundation Platinum Awards, Life Time Achievement awards show is coming up at the Lensic Performing Arts Ctr, on Fri Aug 23rd. Bonnie and I, were among the first six artists to receive the award in 2017. I missed last year’s event, but very honored to be invited by executive Dir, David Schwartz, as a front row guest, along with my, dear buddy, and one of my dearest friends, Melanie Matthews. Joe West, my long time friend, again, will MC the show. Proceeds go to their music in the schools programs around New Mexico. Get your tickets at the Lensic box office, or at their website. Be a great with wide variety of music. Hope you’ll support this effort.
Also, at the Lensic is the All State Tribute To Bill And Bonnie Hearne, on Thur Aug 29th at 6PM. Thanks to many sponsors, Lensic, The New Mexican, Ned Jacobs of All State, Chris Alexander, City Of Santa Fe, and others. The Bill And Bonnie documentary New Mexico Rain, , and my nephew Michael Hearne and SXSW will join me in concert, NO DANCING, along with my trio. Michael and I, will have a meet and greet at 6P, in the Lensic Lobby, followed by, documentary at 7:30, and concert immediately following. Tickets are $30, and available at The Lensic Box Office or at their website. Proceeds, we hope there are some, Michael and I will be signing film posters, as well. I will also have CD’s, including a couple of Bill & Bonnie albums, and the Hearne Family Album at the show, along with my own CD’S as well. Look forward to seeing you there.
As I mentioned, last newsletter the Michael Hearne Big Barn Dance is a complete sell-out, both 3 day tickets and single day as well. A waiting list is your last shot at getting a ticket, based on cancellations. That’s the way it is, so plan early next year. There will be a $25, after 7P on Sat, 9/7, ticket, at the gate only, for dancers, for the dance show acts. Hope to see many friends there, as well. The New Mexico Rain documentary will also be screened at approximately 11/30A on Sat, followed by my regular Bill Hearne Trio set, immediately after.
Gotta go for now, thanks much for listening, and supporting my music, as well as Michael’s and all my friends. And BTW, my new CD, “Live At Society Hall, With Don Richmond, and Zeke Severson, we are hopeful to release at the Big Barn Dance Weekend. Be safe, and best and love to all.
