  Saturday, April 13,  Blackie Farrell, 7:30PM

Blackie Farrell might not be a household name, but among his peers he’s no unsung hero. His songs have been recorded and performed by artists ranging from Leo Kottke, Tom Russell, Robert Earl Keen,  Dave Alvin and Michael Martin Murphy, to Bill Kirchen, Commander Cody, Ray Campi, Jerry Lee Lewis,  Asleep at the Wheel, and Chris O’Connell.

Writing his first song at the age of 13, Blackie was inspired by the music he heard blasting from car radios and local music clubs in Oakland, California – everything from Jimmy Reed, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and John Lee Hooker to Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, and Marty Robbins. It was their gritty story-telling that influenced him. At his core, Blackie is a story-teller, cutting a straight line right through life’s jagged edges, not smoothing them over but illuminating their points. Some haunting, some heroic, his tales stick to your bones and conjure up lost spirits and the longings of a well-worn heart.

Blackie will be joined by guitarist extraordinaire Bob Woods.

A $20.00 donation is requested with all proceeds going to Blackie and Bob.

For information, reservations and directions call (530) 753-3472 or email me, wjwagman@dcn.org. I hope to see you here.
