Saturday, May 20 at Chestnut House Concerts: The Ana Egge Trio. Potluck at 6, Music at 7. RSVP with Tim Lehman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s a video of “Rock Me” in honor of Mother’s Day 2017..
This original Ana Egge song is from her album Bright Shadow. Ana sings and plays guitar and Yep Roc Records Recording artists The Stray Birds sing background vocals. May this song be a tribute to mothers everywhere as well as the divine feminine and possibility of redemption in all of us.

The Slocan Ramblers performing Dale Evan’s song “Call Me Long Gone” from their cd Coffee Creek. The Slocan Ramblers will be at Chestnut House Concerts on Sunday, April 23, 2017. Potluck at 6 pm; Music at 7 pm. Suggested donation of 15/20 per person at the door, all money goes to the musicians. RSVP with Tim at email@example.com and mention the number of seats to reserve.
The duo The Barn Birds was the perfect band for our inaugural Chestnut House Concerts show in 2012. Tim was familiar with Chris Kokesh from the Portland music scene and her songwriting, fiddle playing and crystal clear vocals paired nicely with Jonathan Byrd‘s magical storytelling.
One of my favorite Jonathan Byrd songs is the title track from his 2008 album, The Law and the Lonesome. Jonathan is deliberate and introspective as he sings:
Christ on his hilltop and the cop at the truck stop are both only doing their jobs. You’ve got a double-cross to bear. Now you’ve lost the last friend that you had to lose. He’s in the ambulance. You’re in the cruiser, with a fatal case of the sucker-punch blues.
You took the wrong way home.
On Sunday, April 23, 2017 the Toronto-based Slocan Ramblers will be playing at 7:00 pm. They cover Jonathan Byrd’s The Law and the Lonesome tune, but as a more straight, fast-paced bluegrass version. I included videos below of both bands.
To hear The Slocan Ramblers at Chestnut House Concerts on April 23, contact Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 717-940-9311 to reserve seats. Suggested donation of $15-20 per person; all money goes to the musicians.
“Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp share a reverence for vivid, authentic American art forms. They are both rustic and elegant, and they lift us into their sound.” – Seth Bernard, Earthwork Music
