Note from Host:
Just want to thank everyone for making our last two shows at the Stone Church a success.  This new undertaking is a work in progress and we are working out the bugs, but I, personally, love the homegrown factor.
I want to say a special thank you to all of you who brought food to share with everyone.  It made the whole experience richer.
Big thanks to Teresa and David, and Casey for opening their home to us, and Brandon for helping with sound and anyone else I am forgetting, that lent a hand.

Auld Lang Syne: Yearning

Auld Lang Syne

Bio//


Hailing from Rochester, NY, Auld Lang Syne has built a reputation for crafting lyrically incisive songs, firmly rooted in the earth, yet backed by arrangements which are utterly transcendent. Timothy and Kathy Dick sing their hymns to impermanence and heartfelt pleas for authenticity while soaring instrumentation and intricate vocal harmonies weave and dart like a confluence of sparrows

Tom Skinner Memorial Celebration "Scenery" George Barton Linda Long Barton 8-16-15


About The Barton Long Band:

George and Linda have been married and singing together for 38 years.

George Barton has been playing in and around Tulsa for over 30 years and is a 2-time Tulsa World Spotnick award winner as one half of the acoustic duo Barton and Sweeney, who toured nationally for a number of years. He earned a reputation as a blues man and placed with his band George and the Bartones at the National Blues Competition in Memphis, TN in the 90's.

Linda Barton spent years behind the scenes before joining him on stage, singing and playing percussion. Their many years singing together are telling in the seamlessness of their harmonies.

Mike Long has a long history as a Tulsa musician. In the seventies he played in the bands Stampede and Bear Left. He loves old-time fiddle and banjo music and plays Contra dances regularly with local fiddle legend Glen Godsey.

Jackson Barton is the son of George and Linda. He has been around the world of music and musicians all of his life and has his father's knack for picking up stringed instruments and playing effortlessly. He is young and on the move, playing bass with Barton and Long when he is available.

There is something magical about a family who makes music together, and this shines through with each performance.

John Fullbright - All The Time In The World (eTown webisode #860)

Likening him to songwriters like Guy Clark and Jason Isbell, Monroe says Fullbright's music demands close and careful listening. "When I play John Fullbright records for people, I tell them to put their phones down and shut up, because you can't miss a word. There are no throwaway lines."  Country singer/songwriter, Ashley Monroe

 

 

Gurf Morlix "She's A River"

Morlix’s gruff tone and deliberate tempos are a piece with his songs of despondency, loneliness and exhaustion. But these emotional crucibles also produce resolve, such as that underpinning “Grab the Wheel,” and lifelines that remain visible in even the darkest of places. Redemption isn’t always at hand, however, and self-awareness isn’t necessarily a saving grace; some setbacks can only be moderated, and invitations, such as the bar in “Elephant’s Graveyard,” can turn out to be a trap. Morlix picks at the details of missed opportunities as if they’re a scab protecting healing flesh; but at the same time he’s searching for kernels of truth, such as found in a canine’s view of “A Dog’s Life,” or penetrating human insights, as essayed in the closing “Blue Smoke.” The search may be eatin’ at him, but it’s a fulfilling emotional and intellectual meal.

Claude Bourbon "Crazy Dog"

Claude Bourbon is an enigma, he is a classically trained musician, who fuses every conceivable genre of acoustic guitar music into a master-class of a stage performance. There are Latin, Spanish, Gypsy, Jazz and Delta Blues influences throughout, and often within one seamless stream of perfection. 

Isabel/Between You And Me

Duke Ellington said that "music comes in two categories: Good and Bad." Joesf draws on a wide range of influences to create an instrumental art form of textures, moods, and melodies. It is an improvised music based on very structured ideas. 

Tulsa OK. based finger style guitarist Charlie Hill releases his latest effort entitled The Landing in 2012. On this debut release Hill carries on the exciting tradition of the accoutic guitar masters like Leo Kottke and the late Michael Hedges.  Cyrus Rhodes- The Muse's Muse

HOST NOTE:

Recently I have been given the opportunity by the good folks who own and operate The Artery at 119 So. Detroit Ave. Tulsa, to utilize a wonderful space for music concerts located 5 minutes from downtown in West Tulsa.  The building was formerly an old stone church.  It is located one block off Charles Page Blvd and is east of Mark Twain Elementary School.  The pews have been removed and it is a large, yet still intimate space.  


It has a wonderful ambiance, wood floors, high ceilings and most important a warm wonderful sound.  I had the privilege of hearing talented singer/songwriter Briana Wright perform there the other night, unplugged, and you could hear every word resonate through out the building in a rich tone.

I feel privileged to be able to present this next House Concert that has been so graciously offered. I hope you will join me for this maiden journey into new frontiers and continue to support great live music in a smoke-free, listening room with diverse folks who share a love for great songs.    

Sarah Clanton - SILVER LINING - Official Music Video

Sarah Clanton - SILVER LINING - Official Music Video

Sarah Clanton’s folk-rock-meets-speakeasy sound is a celebration of the unexpected. The classically trained singer-cellist-songwriter strums, bows, picks, and taps her instrument through heartbreak and vengeance on songs that grab you by the collar and refuse to let go. Her vocals can go from moonlit night to house on fire on a dime, with a tone that blends smoke with sunlight and lands somewhere between Nina Simone and Gillian Welch. 


"Sarah is full of surprises. Her demeanor is demure, her music is dark-edged with a satirical bite. She has imagination, bravado and the technical chops to turn you into a believer."
Peter Himmelman

 

 

Goddess Androgyny (Annie Ellicott, piano by Amy Cottingham)

Annie Ellicott Artist Bio: Annie Ellicott is an interdisciplinary artist working to expand her role as a singer/songwriter through video production, stagecraft, and performance art. Annie has toured the United States as well as Europe, performing both traditional jazz and original compositions. She has also been a prominent stage actress in Oklahoma for over eighteen years.


"My album of original music entitled Lonesome Goldmine with producer Mark Kuykendall at Unknown Tone Studio. The sound is ambient and cinematic. It's designed to mine the depths of the listeners inner world where innumerable surprises are waiting and hoping to be discovered. There is a lonesome goldmine inside which holds unfathomable wisdom, power and love."
