music performance 2/27: Heart and Hammer

...from Julianna Waters, of Heart and Hammer...
Hi Everybody!

Next Saturday, we'll be playing a rare full concert at Artichoke Music's Backgate Theater with the whole band, including the Kerry Williams on Mando, Carl Smith's percussion and Jeff Woodcock on bass. If you haven't been there before, you're in for a real treat. It's an incredible listening venue and we'd love to see you there. Barry and I have both been writing up a storm this past year and have lots of new material. If you haven't heard us before, go to our website at:

Have a listen. I've included a flyer below. For all of you that know us and have supported us so graciously over the years, one more request: pass this notice, or one of your own, on. We'd really like to fill the room, support Artichoke and have a great time. AND, we have a few surprises up our sleeves ... smile.

Now for a little (more) shameless self promotion: Two of my songs are being played on-line at Women of Substance Radio. You can listen at:

Please forgive me if you receive this twice... I really need to go through the mailing list and do a little housekeeping. If you haven't received anything from us before, I've included you from another mailing list just to connect up with you and say, hey, here's a bit of what Julianna and Barry have been up to.

Anywhooo, that's it for now. Well, almost... I want to put out a plug for Artichoke. They provide not only one of the best listening venues in the Northwest, but enormous community service by providing classes, song circles and all kinds of musical opportunities for adults and children. They have a top notch teaching staff and, as far as I can see, nearly daily musical events. I think the economy has been hard on our little hub, so, if you're looking for lessons, or instruments or just good music, try making Artichoke your first stop.

Thanks so much!

If you are or will be in the Portland, Oregon, area next week, I hope you spend some time with Heart and Hammer at Artichoke music. They are talented musicians and a pleasure to listen to.
