Information and a cry for help from musicians

Information and a cry for help from musicians

Tuesday Night. More information on Michael Hurley

Michael Hurley show in Columbus, OH.
Tuesday, May 20 at Rumba Cafe, 2507 Summit Street, 43202.
This will be an early show, 8-11 pm, at an intimate venue with good sound.
Just $8 at the door.
Michael Hurley, aka Doc Snock etc, etc, is an old favorite of some of the musicians around here, and a new favorite to accumulating handfuls of young fans. His new album, "Ancestral Swamp" on the Gnomonsong Label, is getting good reviews all over, and there was just a major article about him in the influential music mag "Wire". But, this is just the latest in a long and steady string of recordings going back to 1965, when he recorded "First Songs" for the Folkways Label on the same tape recorder that Leadbelly recorded his last songs. A couple of classic early '70s LPs for Jesse Colin Young's "Raccoon" label introduced him to some of his devoted fans hereabouts, leading ultimately to Barry Chern inviting him to play in Columbus for the first time just 11 years ago this month.He is back in Ohio this week for the Nelsonville Music & Arts Fest, and there has been a rather off-the-cuff effort to get Columbus the pleasure of his first concert here in quite a few years now. I'm sure most of you will be at Nelsonville, but left wanting more. And those who are unfortunately left behind, here is your second chance.

From Dave Rainey

Hi guys,
The Raineys will be back at Papa Joe's this Friday May 23rd at 7:30 p.m. We will be upstairs and a good friend of mine, Pat Neal, has built a stage
for us.
Papa Joe's is located at 20 Cromley St in Ashville.
We have a few new twists and songs prepared for this show plus all the
regular good songs and general nonsense you have come to expect. Thanks to all of you who made it out the last time. The place was packed and
we will work on a better seating arrangement so more of you are closer to
the stage. (if that is where you really want to be).
You can check out some of our stuff at
Remember, come early for a good seat and as always, thanks for your support.
Dave, Jenny and Megan

From Judith Tompkins

Would you mind forwarding this info on to your music loving friends. Peter Mayer is a fantastic guitarist. He has been the lead guitarist for Jimmie Buffet for over 10 years, his drummer played for Cheryl Crow, and he has a 17? year old violinist that is truly talented. It will be a great show. Much appreciated. His web site is, his last CD, Still in One Peace is sampled, along with other CD's he has produced over the years.
