This week Brewer & Shipley kick off their 2010 show schedule. They play Thursday in Newtown Connecticut. The show is a fundraiser for WPKN in Bridgeport. Kevin Gallagher will probably introduce the guys. Kevin is the guy who did such a great job interviewing Michael and Tom last July in his “One More Toke, The Words and Music of Brewer & Shipley” broadcast. It is a great interview. We have it linked from our Interviews page.
Then Friday night the guys play at the Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham, Massachusetts. By the pictures on their web site, it looks like a perfect place to see a Brewer & Shipley concert.
Those two shows would be a great start to the 2010 season.... but wait there’s more.
Brewer and Shipley are honored to play anywhere a grateful audience shows up, but Saturday night they honored in a different way. They are the special guests at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble in Woodstock, New York. The list of artists that Levon has invited to open for him at his “barn” in Woodstock, is a list that Brewer & Shipley deserve to be included with. Some of the artists who have Rambled are: John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Leon Russell, Allen Toussaint, Elvis Costello, John Sebastian, Donald Fagen, Allison Krauss, Delbert McClinton, Phoebe Snow, Sheryl Crow, Rickie Lee Jones, Bruce Hornsby, John Haitt, & The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Like Brewer & Shipley these artists have put out quality music for years and years.
What a wonderful way to open the 2010 schedule. Have a blast Michael & Tom.
