Thursday at the Creole Gallery!

The Fabulous HeftonesThursday (today) Brian and I are opening at the Creole Gallery for Travis Harrelson, Ukulele Great from California. The show starts at 7:30pm.

Here is what the Creole website says, in part:

Thursday, July 20 – 7:30pm
with Special Guests, THE FABULOUS HEFTONES
Expect to hear sounds that you never expected could come from a ukulele.

Travis comes to us in a very special appearance outside of his home state of California.

He has been playing since the 1940s and mostly covers great old tunes from the beginning of the 20th century through the 1940s.

So why are we paying attention this guy? Because in the uke world, Travis is considered one of the best never-recorded artists ever. That’s about to change, as two fans/patrons are bringing him to Lansing to record his unique and complex style: Elderly Instruments owner Stan Werbin and local uke collector Dave Pasant.

We are honored to be included in this event. Please consider joining us in an evening of ukulele enjoyment!

And big thanks to Corrina of the Progressive Torch and Twang show on The Impact 89. Last night she not only mentioned the concert, but in addition played two cuts from our Moon June Spoon CD. Corrina, you are the best!
