Howdy! Folks,
Another Thanksgiving, has come and gone, I hope it was a good one. My certainly was, with my dear friends Tom and Nina Rebstock, here in Santa Fe. Nina is an incredible cook, and also prepares a lot of my meals, for me. Went light on the goodies, small portions of sweet potato souffle, and cherry pie. Did sneak in a piece of pumpkin bread at Gig Performance Space, listening to my friend, and mind boggling jazz guitarist Bruce Dunlap. Otherwise straight and narrow on my weight loss program. These last few weeks of the year, are a tremendous challenge for me, with my love for good food, and especially deserts. I will prevail.
In addition to my regular residence nights at La Fonda, I’ll be doing my monthly visit to Second Street Brewery on Second Street. Always a nice evening there, hope you’ll stop by from micro-brew and good pub food.
For the first time in several years, I’m headin’ down to ABQ, for Michael Hearne’s and SxSW annual show for the High Desert Dancers, Christmas party. Huge dance floor, and they’ll be some refreshments as well. Don’t get much of a chance to pick with Michael, now that he lives in Austin. Jimmy Stadler, will be joining Michael. He is an honorary member of SXSW. I’ll do afew with Michael, and just enjoy and seeing a lot of friends and fans. Should be a great time.
Speaking of picking with Michael, Michael, Don Richmond, Zeke Severson, and myself, will be doing a full show together in La Veta CO, on Wed 12/18 at 7PM. The venue is La Veta Mercantile, right on main St in La Veta. It is becoming a great music venue, for both listening and dancing. Wish we could have done it on a weekend, but couldn’t make it work for us all. You could folks in northern New Mexico, and southern CO, come join us for a good pre-Christmas dance and concert. We have no idea, what’s going to happen, but it will be fun. Cross you fingers for good weather.
I’ll close for now, but come see me soon. Love to have you anytime. So much appreciate your support and friendship. Stay well, we need you out there in the audience, and on the door floor. And as Don Richmond, wife, Terri McCartney, and Shake Russell wrote and recorded on their respective albums, Don’s group is the Rifters: here’s the chorus
NEVER MISS A CHANCE
TO SHED A LITTLE LIGHT
GIVE A LITTLE LOVE
MAKE A WRONG RIGHT
LEND A HELPIN’ HAND, ANYTIME YOU CAN
ASK YOUR LOVE TO DANCE
NEVER MISS A CHANCE
We never know, when our chances will run out. Life is short.

Sincerely,
Bill

Howdy! Folks,
Hope all of you are safe, and ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving gathering with whomever. It’s a very special day, and happy to be spending it with my dear friends, Tom and Nina Rebstock here in town. I know it will be a fabulous meal, as Nina is my nutritionist, and makes me most of my meals, and is a Hearnette. Oh! To be so thankful, for all the love I receive, from so many folks, both genders. Missing some very important people TM, they’re home with their families, and that’s. My pal, confidant, personal assistant, when she’s has the time, dietary advisor, Melanie Marione, Matthews, and my sister in spirit, Becky Crutchfield. My life would not be the same with them. Two more reasons to be thankful, for sure. Hope they’ll both be back safely from NYC, and Iowa City. Keep it short this time around. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend. Be good to one another, and hope to see ya very soon.

Sincerely,
Bill

Howdy Folks!,
A big thanks to all, who came toTaos Mesa Brewing on a very clear and cold night. It was a wonderful evening, with some of Taos’s finest dancers, including, skip, Cisco, Cindi, Susan Dilger, and others. Love playing dances in Taos. We’ll be back at TMB in the spring. Also, great sound with Adrian, who also assists at Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Festival.
Want to wish everyone on my list, a very happy Thanksgiving. I truly have many reasons to be grateful, the love and support of so many wonderful folks, right here in Santa Fe. I particularly want to mention a group of beautiful ladies, I jokingly call The Hearnettes. Some of them, in varying numbers, join me for New Mexico Rain, at the end of Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Festal, during my show. It started at the first screening of New Mexico Rain, Story of Bill & Bonnie Hearne, and has sort of expanded. You are not required to sing, just be a part of my life, support what I’m doing. The ones, who choose not to sing, are honorary Hearnettes, although no less important to me. They include, my part-time personal assistant and health supervisor, as ell as exec secretary, a Massage therapist, church music director and friend for 35 years, a nutritionist, retired model, artist, writer, unfortunately she lives in NYC, grandmother, retiree from LANB, you get the picture. Many diverse and wonderful ladies, My life we would be much less without them. Can’t name names, but you know who you are, and how much you mean to me. Hope to have a little party for them all, after the first of the year. Well deserved for sure. Might even do some pickin’ and singin’ for them, a few tunes.
I am planning on back surgery on Feb 25, after my friend Robert Earle Keen, comes to Santa Fe at the Lensic Theater. Also, of course Lyle Lovett is also coming on Valentines Day, also to Lensic. His show is sold out, but thanks to him, he has allowed me to have 3 comps. He’s been a wonderful friend over these many years. . Sorry, the other two are spoken for, valentines, of course. Anyway, be so happy to see them both, as they both participated in mine and Bonnie’s Documenatry. Both should be fun. I am looking forward to getting this spinal stenosis, out of the way, just hang in there through the holidays. And other such things, as Hearnette party, etc. I’m doing OK, with cane in hand, but ain’t stopping my hands and vocal cords. I’ll make it. If you’ve seen some of my pics of me recently, I’ve dropped about 15 pounds, and going down. Two of the Hearnettes, are directly responsible, my buddy Nina Rebstock, nutritionist consultant, who is making me some incredible healthy meals, and Melanie Marione Matthews, who is relentless, in making sure I toe the line, with my diet. They’re touch customers, but it’s paying off big time, and I’m feeling much better. We get the spine thing fixed, and I’ll be rockin.
Couple of things to mention. First on Sun Dec 8th, Michael Hearne and SouthXSouth West, along with their buddy and mine, Jimmy Stadler, guesting, will be doing a show and dance at the Albuquerque Square Dance Ctr from 6/9PM. SxSW is Michael Hearne’s former band, which gets together for reunions several times a year for special things, such as Michael’s Big Barn Dance. This is a dance, open to public, sponsored by some of the former High Desert Dancers, who hire them twice a year to play. For info contact Jim Calvert at: calvert390@yahoo.com <mailto:calvert390@yahoo.com> , $15 bucks,
At door, but best to get a ticket. It’s a great evening, and I’ll be there as well to pick a few with my nephew.
Also, on Wed Dec 18th, Michael, myself, Don Richmond, The Rifters fame, with Zeke on bass, will be doing a very special show/dance, featuring all of us, In La Veta , CO. Aside from the ABQ, and La veta dates, Michael and I, will most likely, not have a chance to pick much together, until his festival. You folks in northern NM and southern CO, join this truly “family”, we’ve known each other for years, for a fun evening at La Veta Mercantile. It will be special. Call, Le Veta Mercantile, for info.
I gotta run, for now, it’s 1:30A, so I’ll sign off for now. Be well, and again, happy Thanksgiving, and you can be sure, I’ll have my piece of pumpkin pie on Thur, it is Thanksgiving. Love you all.

Sincerely,
Bill

Bill’s Update, special announcement, Bill & Michal Hearne in La Veta CO

Wed 12/18-Bill & Michael Hearne together, with Don Richmond and Zeke Severson, La Veta Mercantile, La Veta CO, details soon.

Howdy! Folks,
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.

Thanks,
Bill
