Saul Kaye returns to LLSC, Thursday, February 26

Thursday, February 26, 2009
Potluck: 5 p.m.
Showtime: 7 p.m.

Join us and make welcome Saul Kaye, from San Francisco by way of South Africa. He's quite a talent, as you'll hear and see. He's headed down to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah after this show.

"Crooning about in a blues-rock fashion that could get even the most sleepy coffeehouse jumping, Saul Kaye could easily be compared to fellow South African Dave Matthews. Yes his guitar playing is that good. .. his guitar work is steeped in originality. Vocally he accomplishes great harmonies while he sings true-to-form real stories that anyone can relate to."

Suggested Donation: Advance $15, $20 Door

Advance reservations are appreciated. Please make check payable to Saul Kaye and mail to:

Gutpuppet: Rare Treat

Scot Ray wields two wooden hammers to make his guitar sound like a hammered dulcimer. Sweet.

Welcome Ravalli Republic visitors, and a special thanks to Stacy Lishok and Will Moss for covering the story of our little house concert venue in the woods. If you're interested in this sort of thing, we invite you to add your name to our mailing list, or just monitor this page, to find out who's going to be performing.

If you're interested in hosting house concerts, feel free to email me with any questions. I'd love to help you become a presenter.

Lapwai Lane Shredders Club might seem a strange name for a music venue, but it is the only name that aptly describes just getting here sometimes, like when there's lots of snow or ice on the road. Last night, 20 people who took a chance on this locally unknown act (with two fairly well-known musicians, Scot Ray and Bill Barrett) and braved our ice-laden road to get up here, Gutpuppet didn't disappoint.

For the folks who managed to get stuck on the road and caused a pile up of cars (several of which had to turn back and go home), you missed a truly fantastic performance. Here's audio of set 1 and here's set 2.

Gutpuppet with Darby's own Kirt Lloyd sitting in. I also got to play tabla on this tune, but it's not very noticeable in the streaming audio.
