May is HUGE at the Dragon!!!!!

We are looking forward to the month of May. It will be the biggest month of music we have EVER hosted at the Red Dragon. NINE shows, including some HUGE artists....it is really a stunning lineup (if I do say so myself!). Sure hope you can make a few of em. Here we go!!

FOR ALL SHOWS GO TO

brownpapertickets.com  and search "Red Dragon"

 

Thur, May 2   CHRIS SMITHER (band)   $35reg/$45 VIP   SUITCASE JUNKET

Our CHRIS SMITHER show is now a full band show! Yup...Chris will perform as a trio and may even invite SUITCASE JUNKET (the opener) to join him as well. Our show last year was among our very best. Don't miss the return of Chris Smither!!


Fri, May 3   SUGARCANE JANE (duo)   $25reg/$35VIP   CUMBERLAND COUNTY opens

Alabama super-duo Sugarcane Jane has a stellar pedigree. Anthony paid his dues as a hired gun, playing guitar for NEIL YOUNG and countless others for many years. Savannah Lee can play anything and owned a famous Nashville studio. Her projects included RODNEY CROWELL- The Houston Kid, among the greatest Americana records of all time! The couple came together and became Sugarcane Jane. They join us for the third time.


Sun, May 5   JIMMIE DALE GILMORE & BILL KIRCHEN   $60reg/$75VIP   FRANKIE BOOTS opens

I still can't believe we put this one together! Legendary FLATLANDER Jimmie Dale Gilmore and world famous guitarist Bill Kirchen are coming to town.....and bringing the band! Jimmie Dale was semi-retired last year when DAVE ALVIN got him out for a string of dates including one at the Manship. We had such fun that he and Bill discussed things the following week and jokingly said they should visit the Dragon together. I called their bluff! This one takes place on CINCO DE MAYO.

NASHVILLE/NEW ORLEANS CONNECTION

Les Kerr has a new blog about the musical connection between Nashville and New Orleans. From Louis Armstrong’s collaboration with Jimmie Rodgers to Del McCoury playing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the connection continues at:

http://leskerr.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/the-nashville-new-orleans-musical-connection/

======================================================

"Though it's impossible to pinpoint a particular moment when immigrants began inventing American music, a dramatic turning point surely occurred in 1804, the year a young nation made the Louisiana Purchase. President Thomas Jefferson sought to buy from the French just the city of New Orleans, because of its crucial value as a port. But a cash-strapped Napoleon sold the entire, still-uncharted Louisiana Territory for $15 million — roughly 4 cents an acre.  In a single stroke, America became a thrilling, noisy eruption of sound."

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BREATHE SECONDHAND SMOKE AT WORK.  WHY SHOULD I?
 
"I have been affected by secondhand smoke.  I remember one night I was playing in a club and I went to hit a high note and I almost blacked out on stage.  I had to hold the microphone to keep from falling down. There was so much smoke in the place that it had a negative impact on my singing."
--Deacon John

QUAKER BENEDICTION

When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
   To find the lost,
   To heal the broken,
   To feed the hungry,
   To release the prisoner,
   To rebuild the nations,
   To bring peace among brothers,
   To make music in the heart.

NOTE TO PERFORMERS:

This website is updated Saturdays, before the Hootenanny Power radio show at 9 pm on WRKF.  Please don't wait until Monday or Tuesday after the radio show to send me info on a performance that coming Friday.  It definitely won't make the show, and probably won't make the website.  tlcaffery at yahoo dot com
