Cabin Fever Concert at the Gold Hill Store

February 24th, 2017
We are getting ready for the next Cabin Fever Concert at the Gold Hill Store & Pub on Wednesday, March 1st! We hope you’ll help us welcome Tommy & Saundra O’Sullivan all the way from Dingle, Ireland.

About Tommy & Saundra:

Acclaimed as “one of the great contemporary folk voices of Ireland,” and “a stellar guitarist,” Tommy O’Sullivan, has remained one of the hidden treasures of traditional Irish music for many years. He has toured throughout North America and Europe, appearing at many major venues and festivals. Tommy has always kept an active recording schedule having recorded three albums as a member of Sliabh Notes and a duet album with Bothy Band piper, Paddy Keenan as well as two solo albums.

Saundra O’Sullivan is from Houston, Texas with Native American roots. During high school she sang in many choirs and was a featured soloist. During her nursing career, she continued a high interest in music. Saundra and Tommy’s paths crossed when she attended an annual Irish music retreat in Midlothian, Texas in 2007. Saundra rekindled her love for singing once she moved to Dingle, Ireland and was submerged into the well of the traditional Irish music scene that is so much a part of the Dingle landscape. As they explored singing together they discovered her alto harmonies to be a perfect match for his tenor lead vocals, adding a fertile texture to the overall sound. She has now become a very welcomed addition to the vibrant local music scene in Dingle, Ireland, where Saundra and Tommy now live since their wedding in Houston in March 2010. 

​As usual, tix (which are $15) can be purchased in advance by calling or visiting the Gold Hill Store & Pub, 303-443-7724. ​Doors open at 6:30, concert starts at 7:00-ish. In addition to the usual, delicious menu, a dinner special will be offered. We hope to see you there!

Thank you!

And most of all, Larry Worster will be sitting in with me and we plan to have a lot of fun riffing off one another. New strings on the guitar, gas in the tank, Gold Hill here I come!!!

Escaping Pavement at the Gold Hill Store

September 5th, 2016
Gold Hill Favorites: Escaping Pavement, Gold Hill Store, September 10, 7:00 p.m.
Attached is a picture and below is a short little blurb.

Blurb:  The Detroit, Michigan-based duo masterfully blends and blurs the lines of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock garnering favorable comparisons to artists as diverse as The Band, tastemaker/producer T Bone Burnett, The Civil Wars, and Emmylou Harris. Their unique, joint front-person arrangement that showcases their lush vocal harmonies is combined with melodic mandolin passages and hard driving guitar rhythms. When all of these elements collide, they allow for astounding musical interplay
