Musical Potpourri

with Ann Armstrong & Steve Hughes leading off followed by
Jim Bush,
Jackson Eli,
Bobby (Goof) Huskins & Matt Seevers,
with Cliff Martinez singing and hosting.

We love that all of these folks have agreed to share their music here at the bookstore. We've personally heard them all perform and like them a lot.

Ann & Steve do some of the finest blues you'll hear. They started with local pubs such as Poor David's here in Big D and festivals close by like Kerrville back in the early days when Rod Kennedy was showing us all how to do this, but have been all over the country by now. Ann's slide guitar and Steve's harmonica rifts are not to be missed.

We first heard Jim Bush at The College Street Pub in Waxahachie several years ago and like him so much that we have been back a dozen times. Sometimes, he solos, but most of the time he is playing with musical friends of his which is how we first saw Bobby and Matt. Their folks music is honest and often with a touch of humor.

Jackson has been teaching guitar at the Dallas bookstores for a while now, and it was a real treat to get to see him perform with some of his younger students at the Allgood Cafe which is one of his regular gigs along with The Wine Therapist and Bohemian Cafe in East Dallas. We always are entertained by his shows which show off his musical versatility and guitarmanship. If you miss him here, be sure to look for him around town.

Cliff has been a friend for many years since he first finagled the world's smallest office space from us at the old location on La Vista near Lakewod in exchange for ad hoc computer hardware services. We were pleasantly surprised when we learned that he was doing karoke regularly on lowest Greenville. We have to confess to never having quite made it to hear him there, but when we heard that he was doing a jazz show at Buzzbrewsover on Lemmon Avenue, we had to go. We were very taken by his voice and the quality and feel of his renditions from the American songbook. He currently has a band called Some Guys With Some Dolls which has also played at The Wine Therapist.

Sunday Afternoon - July 12th 1:30-3:30pm

Storytelling for and by Teens

with stories told by storyteller/host Tim Couch with area teens showing off their abilities as well.

This event was specificaly requested on Facebook by one of our customers,
and we are so happy to have been able to find Tim and his wealth of experience
available on such short notice. Check out the link to learn more about his background
and involvement with storytelling.

Also Crafts and Storytime for Youngsters with
Suzie Riddle

We added this event at the same time in our children's area so that you
don't have to leave the younger children at home while bringing your teens
for the storytelling in our program space.

Suzie has a spent a lot of time with children in her stints as a librarian over the years.
Besides the crafts that she will have for youngsters to work on she would love to do a
storytime session if we have enough children who would like her to do this.
