The Hard Road Trio in El Paso and Marana

April 4, 2016

Hi Friends,

The Trio rides again!

Fri. April 8th we’re excited to return to Wine Attitude in El Paso. This is a fun place on the west side with imported wines, tempting cheese boards and a great listening environment. Then we head straight over to Marana, Arizona on Sat. and Sun. April 9-10 for the Marana Bluegrass Festival. We’re playing a set each day and look forward to guest appearances from Peter McLaughlin and Nick Coventry who contributed tracks to our latest CD, Smoke and Redemption. Please see for more info.

The weekend of April 16th and 17th Steve and Tim will be taking their duo to two excellent venues in Illinois: Down Home Guitars in Frankfort and the Old Feed Store in Cobden. See the calendar below for details.

Our Desert Night Acoustic Music Songwriter Intensive at the Black Range Lodge in Hillsboro, New Mexico is coming in May! Or if we need an acronym, the DNAMSI at the BRL. We’ll start with one of the Lodge’s delicious dinners Friday May 20th and wrap it up on Sunday afternoon of the 22nd. The Trio is delighted to have Tom Adler joining us on the faculty. We’re limiting participation to optimize the experience, and spaces are still available. To streamline the process of registration, please contact Chris at 575-571-5298 or to be a part of this weekend dedicated to you and your music.

Tip of the month. Two Hard Road alumni have released two great recording projects: Looney Bird from Ashleigh Caudill and Aaron McCloskey and Aka Laser Bunny. Another outstanding alumnus, Nate Lee, can be found playing exquisite licks all over Ashley’s finely crafted, beautifully sung original songs. She plays a hell of a claw hammer banjo, too. Aaron and his Colorado cohorts and fellow South Plainers, Chris Elliot and Alex Johnstone, jam with humor, grace and style. Both these projects are sonic treats! Please find them and enjoy.

Thanks for your support of live music, and for all the music YOU make,

Steve, Chris and Anne
