Note from the Host:
Thanks to all who came out to support live music at our last show, and brought food to share.  You guys are the best.  I am really pumped to share with you this next artist, John Dee Graham and The Fighting Cocks.  The band will feature Geo Duron (John Wesley Harding, Alejandro, etc.) and Andrew Duplantis (Son Volt, Meat Puppets, etc.).  

"Jon Dee Graham is a guitarist and songwriter from Austin, Texas. A former member of the True Believers with Alejandro Escovedo, Graham is the only musician ever to be inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame three times.

Jon Dee Graham is most well known for his solo work, including the critically acclaimed records "Escape from Monster Island", "Hooray For The Moon", and "Full". He is also well known for his tenure in The Skunks, Austin's very first punk band, and roots-rock pioneers The True Believers with Alejandro Escovedo. Jon Dee has also played guitar with acts such as John Doe (X, The Knitters), Exene Cervenka (X), Michelle Shocked, Alejandro Escovedo, Kelly Willis, and The Gourds and has had his songs covered by many artists, including Patty Smythe, Patty Griffin and James McMurtry."

Laredo - Jon Dee Graham and the Fighting Cocks

I first laid eyes on Jon Dee Graham on April 16, 1984. He was 25. I was 23.

We were at the Ritz, a giant rock club in Manhattan’s East Village. Jon Dee was playing in a band from Austin, Tex., called the True Believers, who were opening for Los Lobos. I am impatient with opening acts, and I was prepared as always to dislike whatever this thing called the True Believers would turn out to be.

Then they came out on stage and blew my hair back. The Troobs, as their fans called them, were a roaring, three-guitar army like nothing I’d heard since Skynyrd’s plane went down. But these guys had done time in punk-rock bands. They united the Athens weirdness I had loved in college with the three-guitar stomp that stayed in my eight-track player all through high school.

What I remember liking about Jon Dee Graham was that even though he could clearly play like hell, he never showed off. His solos always served the song.  Story by Chuck Reece  If you want to read the whole story, go to:  The Bitter Southerner

'Little Mustang' - David Olney and Daniel Seymour from The Extended Play Sessions

Who is David Olney?


Master craftsman, acclaimed singer/songwriter and globe-trotting performer David Olney has released more than 20 albums over four decades, including six live recordings. His music has been prominently featured in ABC-TV’s Nashville and his stellar songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien and Steve Young, 


 "Though he's best known as a masterful wordsmith, Olney has a knack for creating the ideal atmosphere for his gothic noir tune.” - Acoustic Guitar Magazine

David Olney "Brains"

WINK BURCHAM:
Singer/songwriter, Wink Burcham, has been playing the Tulsa music scene for a number of years, and is an integral part of a new wave of Tulsa talent. He has developed a very loyal following in the region and is beginning to step out on a national scale. Performing a style that easily slips between old-fashioned country, grass-roots folk, and Motown inspired blues, it's easy to understand his appeal. His soulful melodies support witty and heartfelt lyrics in the tradition of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and John Lee Hooker.

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

Green Corn Rebellion NPR


About Green Corn Lite:

This 11 piece band will be pared down to a sextet for this show, thus the name Green Corn Lite.

This Oklahoma-grown band, know forthwith as Green Corn Rebellion, arose from the murk of the sleeping Tulsa Sound, or the mire of the not-so-tired New Tulsa Sound, or perhaps the underpinnings of the dirge-punk scene somewhere in Terlton.

Masked as mere dextrous performers, the band consists of highly trained thinking machines from a variety of backgrounds, tirelessly creating dramatic musical enactments of Americana from the underbelly of the mid-south, i.e. the line of highways that spans Stillwater to Houma, cypress to red dirt, a "prarie-dog rock" voodoo.

Upcoming House Concerts: 
Heather Maloney with Casii Stephan, April 29th
Auld Lang Syne with Green Corn Lite May 3rd

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.

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
