Now that we know that a four piece group can fit, I'm back at trying to book SHEL, an outstanding sister group from Fort Collins Co.; and in keeping with Black Friday... how about their cool Toyland. Happy Thanksgiving. Dave

Oh what a night...

We had a blast... I wish we would have found four to eight more new friends to test the limit of having 40 people and a 4 piece band in the house... but I do feel it was a great night demonstrated by Melissa McCarthy's video.... thanks Melissa.

Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys

Oh this will be a full concert with a lot of smiles and butts grooving in their seats... here's what others have said about Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys'
"Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys bring new life to bluegrass. Sweet and charming vocals along with exceptional musical chops will keep you wanting more." DAVE BRUZZA - GUITARIST FOR AWARD WINNING JAMGRASS BAND, GREENSKY BLUEGRASS "Lindsay really puts her heart into what she sings and how! She sings the way you would want to if'n you could. Phrasing, tone, emotion, it's all there. Effortless seemingly. Simply mesmerizing. Riveting! Don't miss the musical force that is Lindsay Lou." DAVID GRIER - THREE TIME IBMA GUITAR PLAYER OF THE YEAR "As a vocalist, Lindsay falls into an elite category - those who can sing anything you throw their way. I've known and have been fortunate to have worked with a few of these individuals over the years: Charlie Waller, Keith Whitley, Linda Williams & Moondi Klein, to name a few and attribute that association to my having developed into a more well-rounded player. Lindsay will have that effect on the players around her as well, while she is honing her already sharp vocal skills and recording new material which should please any 'well-rounded listener'. Check her out and you'll hear for yourself what I'm saying!" JIMMY GAUDREAU - REPUTABLE MANDOLIN MAVERICK "If you are looking for ancient and soulful tones with a modern rootsy twist, that is exactly what you'll find when listening to Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys. Putting on their CD it reminds me of listening to an old 45 RPM. Each song is unique, entertaining, and flows easily into the listener's ears. Lindsay and the boys will surely win your heart!" CAROLINE COLIE - FOUNDER OF ACOUSTIC TRAIL INC., PAGOSA SPRINGS, CO Once in awhile you hear a record and think “This couldn’t be new. It sounds timeless.” When I hear Lindsay Lou sing and the Flatbellys play, I am transported to another time. Lindsay’s voice is among the most beautiful, authentic, and classic sounding you will ever hear. – JOHN BOMMARITO - ANN ARBOR'S 107ONE (WQKL-FM)

Beth Wood May 5th

Picture a home-body with an ever-present wanderlust, an introvert with a passion for performing, a creative free-spirit with enough discipline to rework her dream year after year, calloused little hands and a big pile of curly hair…and you’ve got Beth Wood, modern-day troubadour.

Picture a tumbleweed blowing across the plains of west Texas, and another musician-songwriter is born! Beth Wood began her musical journey in Lubbock, a high plains Texas town with a uniquely rich musical heritage that includes Buddy Holly, Natalie and Lloyd Maines, Mac Davis, and Joe Ely to name a few. When she wasn’t dodging tornados and dust storms, Beth was studying classical piano, violin, harp, and voice and contemplating the greatness of her Dad’s Willie Nelson records.

With grandiose dreams of becoming a musician, a baker, or a cowgirl, Beth left west Texas to study voice and piano at Brevard College in North Carolina. A detour from her classical studies led her to Austin, where she picked up a degree in literature and a guitar. Beth began writing her own songs and quickly discovered a feeling of musical freedom that she has been hooked on ever since. Fifteen years, thousands of shows, nine albums, three cars, and numerous awards later, Beth has never looked back. Beth’s exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and engaging, energetic stage presence have been winning over audiences from coast to coast.

“The Weather Inside,” Beth’s eighth studio release, is a case study in contrast. A coming-of-age statement record from a veteran artist, Beth’s latest work embraces strength and tenderness, the polished and the well-worn, the broken and the hopeful heart. Produced by Billy Crockett at Blue Rock Studio in Wimberley, TX, “The Weather Inside” delves deep into Beth’s creative reserves and delivers a strong collection of songs and performances to remember.

Beth and her husband and their sweet dog Marble now live in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. Beth is settling in to the Northwest music scene, where she has been featured on OPB’s “Artbeat” tv show, Ninkasi’s Northwest Music sampler, and the Sisters Folk Festival and Song Academy.
