The Pharos Gate by Nick BantockBored with his mail, Nick Bantock grew jealous when he visited his local post office and spotted people clutching personal letters. He fantasized about receiving such letters himself. The result? Two fan-cult favorite, best-seling trilogies that are about to reach closure with the upcoming grand finale, The Pharos Gate: Griffin & Sabine's Lost Correspondence. Twenty-five years ago, Nick redefined the art of storytelling by combining fine art, fiction, and three-dimensional interactive books in his Griffin & Sabine trilogies. Multi-million best sellers, his books spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and received wide critical acclaim.

San Francisco singer/songwriter Bob Hillman is back with a new album after more than ten years away from the business.

After over a decade away from the stage and studio, Bob Hillman returns with the full-length album Lost Soul. The album’s title is ironic in the sense that, with his longtime musical mentor ex-Plimsoul Peter Case at the helm, the San Francisco-based singer/songwriter has found his way out of the creative wilderness. He taps back into literate, tuneful songwriting that defined earlier works like Playing God (1999), Welcome To My Century (2001), and If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home (2006). This time, however, he moves beyond the Americana-leaning folk-rock of his past to embrace a fresh, contemporary sonic landscape; the result is a less crafted, more visceral album.

San Francisco singer/songwriter Bob Hillman is back with a new album after more than ten years away from the business.

He plays Cafe Paradiso Sat Mar 26 at 8pm with Jason Wallsmith of the Nadas.

After over a decade away from the stage and studio, Bob Hillman returns with the full-length album Lost Soul. The album’s title is ironic in the sense that, with his longtime musical mentor ex-Plimsoul Peter Case at the helm, the San Francisco-based singer/songwriter has found his way out of the creative wilderness. He taps back into literate, tuneful songwriting that defined earlier works like Playing God (1999), Welcome To My Century (2001), and If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home (2006). This time, however, he moves beyond the Americana-leaning folk-rock of his past to embrace a fresh, contemporary sonic landscape; the result is a less crafted, more visceral album.

Hillman and Case bring unique individual and collective histories into this project. The Plimsouls had a regional hit with “A Million Miles Away” in 1983, at a time when Hillman was learning guitar and starting to check out the Los Angeles music scene. In 1989, Hillman experienced an awakening when he saw Case perform a solo show at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica. “Peter played solo acoustic—the classic ‘folk’ construct—but with rock energy,” the singer says. “That was the kind of music I wanted to make.” Cut to the mid-90s, when Hillman—now living in New York—on a whim sent Case, who had just released his album Torn Again, his first batch of demos. Case saw potential and invited him to L.A. to play with him at the Ash Grove on the Santa Monica Pier.

Hillman subsequently embarked on a path to a series of breakthroughs, including two albums produced by Tommy West, who made a bunch of hits in the 70s with pop troubadour Jim Croce and others. He also started picking up higher-profile gigs, including opening for Suzanne Vega at the House of Blues in L.A. and The Fillmore in San Francisco.

She recorded 4 CDs in her own name: “De Jager” (The Hunter), “Over en Weer” (Back en Forth), "Mijn huis" (My House) and "Viert" (Celibrate). “The Hunter” sold over 30,000 albums in 2 years time. Her newest album, called "Chanticleer", is entirely in English and is produced by Peter Case. It was recorded at the Carriage House in Los Angeles.

Singing these praises is more than mere enjoyment, it also produces changes in the chemistry of our bodies, rewiring our perceptions of suffering, creating a happier life and opening the way to manifest the higher self."

From local accounts of folks who've heard Daniel sing, his performance will be a joyful, spiritually transformational event.Bruce says, "I'm personally grateful to Coralee for inspiring Daniel to perform here in between his Chicago and Kansas City concerts. He's going to love the spiritually resonant Fairfield audience and vice-versa."

Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore

One of my favorite cooks this week on Great Taste: Anna Thomas.

Anna Thomas started a cookbook revolution in 1973 when her now classic, The Vegetarian Epicure, was published.  Her newest book, Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore:  Dinner for Everyone at the Table, is a paradigm-shifting volume filled with over 200 recipes.  The book is about hospitality. "Start with the foods that everyone eats," she writes, "design a meal that works, then expand it, make it flexible..."  Personally, I think she may have hit on a real solution for world peace.

Don't forget GREAT TASTE is LIVE at Green Building Supply next week, Tuesday, May 3 with asparagus whisperer, Michael Havelka.  See you there at 7:00 pm for the show and free tasting of my favorite spring vegetable.

Muddy Ruckus is a nationally touring americana-rock duo from Portland, Maine. The stripped down power duo features guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl. Muddy Ruckus blends haunting male/female vocals, rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit. The band seasons their music with the salt of the eastern old ports and the mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up, creating an epic blend of bluesy folk rock, foot stomping rhythms and haunting vocal melodies. The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus "Darkly Inventive Americana". In April 2016, Muddy Ruckus was dubbed "Best in State of Maine" by the New England Music Awards.

Join James Moore for a discussion wClaire Hoffmanith Claire Hoffman about her book GREETINGS FROM UTOPIA PARK: Surviving A Transcendent Childhood, her career and perspectives on life this Wednesday, May 18th at 1pm CT on KRUU-LP 100.1. [Rebro THU 7pm & Fri 3pm]

Claire works as a magazine writer living in Los Angeles, writing for national magazines, covering culture, religion, celebrity, business and whatever else seems interesting. She was formerly a staff reporter for the Los Angeles Times and a freelance reporter for the New York Times.

She has a masters degree in religion from the University of Chicago, and a masters degree in journalism from Columbia University. She serves on the board of her family foundation, the Goldhirsh Foundation, as well as the Columbia Journalism School. Claire is a native Iowan and has been meditating since she was three years old.

UTOPIA is a riveting, astonishingly honest, ultimately life-affirming journey through the heartlands of consciousness, spirituality and Fairfield. Claire's gifts as a writer and storyteller are abundant and manifest, her observations manage to be fierce, gentle, discerning, and loving at the same time.

For those of us who grew up inside the bubble diagram, so to speak, committed to the high ideals of creating 'heaven on earth' in the cornfields of Iowa, hopeful of floating into the sunset of the age of enlightenment, there will be uncomfortable moments. Claire's organic magical realism peels the onion all the way back to the unified field and then some. Some passages had me wincing in embarrassed recognition, others made me laugh or shake my head, mostly at myself, others feel proud or sometimes sad in unexpected ways.

The Depot Brewery | "Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
We are partnering with the Gulf Coast to 'Flood Louisiana with Love' from Iowa.

3 Ways to GIVE:

(1)The Depot Brewery cash or check Donations
Thursday - Sunday open @ 5:00
(2) Iowa State Bank Fairfield, Iowa account
"Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
(3) Direct to our Gulf Coast Partner https://cityhope.cc/

My family is connected with City Hope and I assure you 100% of your donations go directly to the people affected by the flood. If you have never been affected by a natural disaster, it's hard to imagine the devastation. It is like being in a war zone. The realization of the far-reaching impact is truly devastating financially and emotionally to businesses, school children, and the little businesses like news paper routes that no longer exist because the homes are no longer there.

This kind of disaster reaches far and wide for years. People begin to give up hope. They need the basics like drinkable water and it's also nice to have a few comfort foods to give back normalcy. Emotional strength comes from knowing that your country and fellow Americans come to the aide of its people. I always try to remember in every tragedy you can find a blessing. My blessing is that this unites us!!! We all need that right now! Louisiana has had more than its share of disasters. Let's unite to help them and receive a blessing in the process.

Please GIVE strength with your giving and Hope with your LOVE
--Maggie

The Depot Brewery Staff thanks and appreciates you Iowa for uniting with our efforts to help Flood Louisiana with LOVE

Guitar Legend Bill Kirchen at The Depot Brewery Thu Nov 3rd


Bill KirchenInterview airs Tue Nov 1st at 7am CT

Indy Week calls him "one of the best guitarists in the land". Vintage Guitar Magazine labels him "an American classic." British rocker Nick Lowe says, "He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music. To hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on your musical memory." The Man in Black, Johnny Cash, put it simply: "I think he's great."

 

Grammy-nominated Titan of the Telecaster Blll Kirchen, co-founder of the original Kirchen, on the far right, with Commander Cody“Americana” band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, will be in Fairfield for one show only at the Depot Brewery on Thursday, November 3rd at 8pm. His guitar licks propelled Commander Cody's hit “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top 10 back in 1072 and he's been blazing away ever since. His latest release "Transatlanticana" came out in August.

 

Kirchen is no stranger to Fairfield but this will be his first time playing the Depot Brewery, an artisan juke joint with a killer sound system and spacious dance floor perfectly suited to his twang-a-billy rock'n'roll sensibilities. Bill grew up in Michigan where he graduated same year, same class from Ann Arbor High School as one James Newell Osterberg, Jr., otherwise known as Iggy Pop. Kirchen relates: “I first saw Bob Dylan at my high school in Ann Arbor in ’63, then Newport Folk Festival in ’64 where he debuted ‘Mr. Tambourine Man.’ I went to Newport the next year and saw him ‘go electric’. I loved it. What I saw those two years at Newport, and all the wild music that came through Ann Arbor and Detroit pretty much ruined me for normal work.”

A founding father of Americana, Bill's fun-loving, devil may care, go for broke musicality is always entertaining. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show. Available now at the Depot Brewery or by credit card at 641 469-6959 during working hours.

He danced for and with Martha Graham and later circled the globe dancing for the boundary-breaking Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
