Wed 12/18-Bill & Michael Hearne together, with Don Richmond and Zeke Severson, La Veta Mercantile, La Veta CO, details soon.
Well, it’s finally happened. Took some doing, but finally came together earlier today. Something many folks have hoped for, for a long time. Michael and I will finally be performing with each other for an entire evening, at a great venue in La Veta CO. Ten miles west of Walsenburg, CO. Other than the Michaels’ Barn Dance, we rarely do more than a few tunes together. The folks in La Veta, have been wanting to do this for some time, and we finally got it together, it was challenging, to make it happen, and we’re all very excited. Joining us, will be incredible instrumentalist, and vocalist, Don Richmond, founder of the Rifters group, and honorary member of both Bill Hearne Trio, and Michael’s sometimes group, SXSW. We’ll have another member of Michael’s SXSW trio, Zeke Severson on Bass and might even get him to sing a tune. Zeke also works with me as well. Don will do a few tunes from the Rifters, outstanding new album Passes & Peaks. It will be one helluva show. The folks at La Veta Mercantile, are just getting details together, but I’ll let you know ASAP. It’s down in ink, weather permitting. Cross your fingers for a beautiful winter day in southern Colorado. Believe, me, we tried for a weekend date, just couldn’t make it work. BTW, THERE WILL BE A DANCE FLOOR at the Mercantile. Hope to see you there, for a very rare occurrence, Uncle Bill and Michael. Best to all, don’t forget tonight, and tomorrow night, La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda, 7:30.
