Music: March’s Local and Live Notes, Calendar


By Kris Youmans, Special to The Paper

We had Spring of Deception for two days and I’ll take it! Just made me think about the wonderful Spring days we’re due for & the outdoor concerts being planned in the area.

I’ve recently retired (or ‘redirected’ I should say) and then on February 6th married my favorite steel guitar player Mr. Warren Hall, you know him as Barefoot Slim. I included this side note because not only do I consider our fabulous band as family, our new album will include contributions from friends and family members.

Keep your ears open for great music online and in venues where possible. We’ll all be out and about before you know it.
