Bill Hearne Trio with Don Richmond

April 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm | $12

Bill Hearne calls it ‘The Road:’ that metaphorical ribbon of honky-tonks, roadhouses, empty whiskey glasses, prison cells and unrequited love lined with signposts and mile markers tattooed with names like Haggard, as in Merle, Williams, as in Hank, Owens, as in Buck, and Lovett, as in Lyle. Being legally blind, Bill has never actually driven The Road himself, but he sings with such authority of the tales he’s heard while riding shotgun that you’d never know it.

Bill is widely recognized as one of the most amazing flat-picking guitarists anywhere, and this combined with his brilliant interpretations and encyclopedic knowledge of country and folk music make him one of the most well-respected and iconic performers active in his genre. Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, and Jerry Jeff Walker have all been guest performers on his albums.

In the trio, Bill is backed by Bob Goldstein on lead guitar, mandolin & banjo, and either Zeke Severenson or Dave Toland on bass, along with Don Richmond.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
