Mon/Tue-La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda Hotel, Santa Fe, 7:30PM
Sat-Cowgirl BBQ, Santa Fe, 1/4PM
Sun-La Fiesta Lounge, at La Fonda Hotel, Santa Fe, (SOLO), 6/8PM
Hope all is well with everyone. It’s all good here in Santa Fe, much needed rain, and even some snow in the high country this week. Glad to see it, here in the high desert. A little more going on this week, excited to play at the Cowgirl BBQ, hopefully on the patio, weather permitting. Also, I’ll be doing my first “third Sunday” solo show at La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda. If all goes well, I’ll be doing this every third Sunday of each month, in addition to my regular Mon/Tue dates. A little more mellow, and more Americana drift to the music. It certainly won’t be against the law to dance, on these nights, but the focus will be on more listening type music. We’ll see what happens. I want to thank Jenny Kimball and La Fonda for giving this a shot. Big thanks to Dave Toland, my good friend and part-time bassist and sound tech, for helping me with the digital PA and running the iPad. I’ll be by my lonesome for this show. Dave will be joining me at the Cowgirl on Sat afternoon, on bass and harmony vocals.
My Texas tour will begin at the Kerrville Folk Festival on May 28th. I’ll be doing a concert at the campground stage, Michael Hearne is scheduled to join me, along with Jon Mastin on bass, and possibly my buddy Bob Goldstein, who played with me, and still does on occasions. Show starts at 7:00P, followed by screening of the Bill & Bonnie Story, New Mexico Rain at dark. Bunee Tomlinson, producer/director, will also be there. I’m also glad to have my dear friend Melanie Matthews along, for part of this tour for personal assistance, CD sales, etc. Unfortunately, she can only take off a week, but so glad she’s coming with me. My complete schedule is as always, on www.billhearne.com <www.billhearne.com> . Be out till June 9th, so NO LA FIESTA LOUNGE SHOW ON MAY 27TH/28TH, AND JUNE 3rd/4th. I do plan on being back, if SWA gets me back on time, for June 10th/11th. Hope to see many of my dear fans and friends on the elongated run to Texas. Also playing a couple of new venues, along the way.
Best to everyone on this list, and please, if you know someone who is a fan, let them know about the newsletter, and tell them to sign up on my website. I look forward to seeing you soon. Stay safe, and happy.
