Hey ya’ll. It sure has been a while ain’t it? A LOT has come and gone since we last spoke. And I mean, A LOT. I’ve got podcasts to share with you, and by podcasts, I mean PODCASTS- lot’s of em suckers. But that’s not why I’m here now. I’ll share them with you later on, because I have some ideas about how I want to present them to ya. You all know I am just ever so concerned with presentation. What can I say, I am my father’s son after all (aren’t we all).
The news for today is news about Sunday. We were invited to be a part of this years Huntington Music and Arts Festival. We’re hosting a SUNDAY DINNER upstairs at Black Sheep Burritos & Brews with singer-songwriters COLTER WALL and TIM LANCASTER and novelist S.G. REDLING.
$10 gets you, in addition to the show, a DELICIOUS and UNIQUE three-course meal. This meal, this FEAST is a one-of-a-kind, a one-night-only, be-there-or-be-square kind of ordeal. The menu is being lovingly prepared special for HMAF and Travelin Appalachians Revue and if you miss it, well, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
COLTER WALL is a singer-songwriter from the prairies of Saskatchewan in central Canada. Take Johnny Cash and Blaze Foley and throw em in a pot with Alan Lomax’s Southern field recordings, add a pinch of Townes Van Zandt, a dash of Mark Lanegan, and you’ve got an idea about Mr. Wall here. His album, IMAGINARY APPALACHIA, was released in 2015.
Huntington’s S.G. REDLING is the author of the best-seller FLOWERTOWN, BAGGAGE, The Dani Britton thrillers – THE WIDOW FILE and REDEMPTION KEY, as well as the sci-fi and urban fantasy novels DAMOCLES and OURSELVES. A former radio host and avid traveler, Sheila is also a language geek, wine enthusiast, and so-so gardener. Her newest thriller, AT RISK, hits shelves this September.
TIM LANCASTER is an American-Folk musician born and raised in Central Florida. From a young age, the art of storytelling has been a most important interest, and as soon as he was able, Tim began travelling the country, collecting the tales and stories that are the very life-blood of his songs. With no more than a guitar, harmonica, banjo and bones, Tim Lancaster’s are inspired by the extreme conditions of the heart. His sound is a breath of fresh air to those looking for something potent and sincere in today’s music. After releasing two albums, his third collection is due Spring 2016.
