Acoustic Stories Bill Amatneek
Mar 21 Mia Cuppa Cafe 6PM
Years of performing behind artists like Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, David Grisman, and Jerry Garcia would probably give anyone a lot of stories to share. He walks the streets of Paris hunting for a source of tortoise shell flatpicks with Tony Rice, Darol Anger, David Grisman, and Bill Keith…the Bill Keith Bicentennial Bluegrass Band. And collaborates with Kate Wolf: “Kate, both as a lyricist and as a human being, was always about love.” He tells of David Grisman trying to introduce Jerry Garcia to Stephane Grapelli as the legendary violinist attempts to mask he has no idea who Jerry or the Grateful Dead are. There’s Bill Monroe, showing up behind the Peter Rowan Band onstage at the 1995 Wintergrass Festival, he and Peter engaging in a playful shoving match ending with Big Mon sending Peter flying with an elbow shot to the ribs. Or stories of the New Riders of The Purple Sage; Peter, Paul and Mary and Bob Dylan. $8 ADV/FFS $12 Door Advance tickets at National Hardware, Patrick's Music and fresnofolkconcerts.com All Ages 620 Olive Ave in Fresno's Tower District Fresno Folklore Society Steve Ono 559-307-3610
