Summer greetings Rancho music fans-
Well, so far we have been blessed with absolutely perfect weather, and of course some very special musical afternoons which have brought out a record number of “witnesses!” So thank you all for your early enthusiasm, but fortunately, we have a lot more coming up on our calendar. There are four shows in particular I wanted to highlight for you that will take place within one 8 day stretch that demonstrate the variety of music we have been able to proudly present at Rancho Nicasio.
On Sunday, August 10th, KRONOS QUARTET will deliver a program of world class modern classical compositions that feature two violins, a viola and a cello, celebrating their 40th Anniversary, right on our lawn! If you check out their website, you won’t see many BBQs; in fact they fly to Edinburgh, Scotland for their next performance, beginning a prestigious European tour. I am so glad, and we are so lucky, that they like our ribs!
On TUESDAY night, August 12th, a real legend of country Americana, BILLY JOE SHAVER, will make an increasingly rare appearance in Northern California. His prior appearances at our joint have been nothing less than stunning. BILLY JOE is revered and has written songs for the likes of WILLIE NELSON, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, JOHNNY CASH and maybe most famously, a whole WAYLON JENNINGS album called HONKY TONK HEROES that was the beginning of “outlaw music” which eventually gave birth to THE HIGHWAYMEN. He is one of the most respected living figures in American music.
On Saturday night August 16th, JEFFREY BROUSSARD & THE CREOLE COWBOYS will be pulling into town all the way from Lafayette, Louisiana. That is where the heart of the Creole culture and Zydeco music is located and Jeffrey was born and raised to spread the “real deal” across the country. This is his Rancho debut, so all you Zydeco lovers, or just dance enthusiasts, come out and show him some love.
And then on Sunday, August 17th, we have the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Queen of Rockabilly; WANDA JACKSON returning from her sold out indoor show last November to give us a rocking BBQ on the Lawn. Wanda is credited as being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll record (a hit called Let’s Have a Party,1958) and has been rockin’ ever since. Once again, she will be accompanied by our longtime favorite Bay Area group, RED MEAT, who will perform a set of their own well. A great afternoon.
So, there you have it, Classical, Country, and Zydeco to Rockabilly in 8 days. I hope to see many different folks out here that week enjoying our musical potpourri.
HASTA PRONTO AMIGOS,
He's Back in Town!
BILLY JOE SHAVER
A True Hall of Famer
