Hello, Friends, Fans, and Family!
Hank and Shaidri hope you had an excellent Thanksgiving holiday. May the spirit of Thanksgiving evolve into World Peace. That’s where it’s at.
We will have two appearances in Austin this month, both at Threadgill’s North, one near the beginning of the month, and one near the end, with a fabulous house concert coming up in early January 2014.
We would love to see your smiling face at any of these! We love to play music, and playing it live for you is the best.
Here we go:
Hank & Shaidri with Special Guests Mark Viator and Susan Maxey
Threadgill’s North “Sittin’, Singin’ & Supper”
Wednesday, December 4, 7 to 9:30PM
6416 North Lamar Blvd. * (512) 451-5440
Our Special Guest artist this evening is the Americana roots duo Mark Viator and Susan Maxey, and we’re delighted they’ve accepted our invitation. They are good musical company, and we’ll be in one of the friendliest venues in town. We might even cook up something musically special, given the extra ingredients that will be at hand.
We always enjoy playing at Threadgill’s, where the hospitality and food are first rate, and where we enjoy both a good sound system and a fine operator, too. Admission is free, though we do appreciate tips!
Bluegrass Brunch at Threadgill’s North
Sunday, December 29 – 11 AM to 1PM
6416 North Lamar Blvd., Austin, Texas
Admission is free, (tips are appreciated!), the food, sound, and hospitality excellent. This original Threadgill’s, born of the hand and spirit of Austin’s beloved Kenneth Threadgill, “The Texas Blue Yodeler”, remains our home court in Austin, and as always, we are tickled to return. For one thing, we get brunch! Hank smells bacon…
Sycamore Creek House Concert!
Saturday, January 4, 2014 – 7 to 11 PM
Sycamore Creek Drive, Dripping Springs, Texas
Thomas and Gail Chapmond’s Sycamore Creek house concert venue is among the finest in the land. Admission is open to all but only by reservation/invitation. Once you make your reservation you will receive an invitation with details and directions. Request an invitation via email to: <sycamoreCreekconcerts@gmail.com> This is a very special venue, and we are thrilled to begin our 2014 schedule in this gorgeous setting.
We are tickled to have those three shows lined up, and to see our 2014 schedule begin at Sycamore Creek. We are are seeing other notable 2014 bookings fall into place around our second tour with the delightful Susan Herndon, the Togetherness Tour 2014. The Blue Door in Oklahoma City and Anderson Fair in Houston are now confirmed TT2014 stops, as well as AllGood Cafe in Dallas, and Threadgill’s North in Austin.
We aim to attend the FAR-West (Folk Alliance Region – West) conference in Oakland CA in October 2014, and have been invited to return to Bill Wagman’s house in Davis CA. We will play a concert in Quincy CA, courtesy of PlumasArts and Roxanne Valadao, venue TBA, and we have tentatively set a date with Studio E in Sebastopol CA, a wonderful venue. We haven’t played out West much and we want more of that!
May your December be healthy and happy. Appreciate your loved ones. In the end, that’s all we really have.
We hope to see you soon.
