Tuesday, January 6, 2009: Randall Williams and Stryngs

Randall Williams is a polymath. He is a world traveler. A sailor. A teacher. A classically voice trained baritone. A citizen of the world. A storyteller. A friend. A guitarist (with and without capos, whole and partial). A newly settled resident of Columbus, Ohio. A writer and published author. A singer/songwriter. 

And he’s bringing us an evening of magic. Music and tales to transport us around the world, food for thought and humor, all founded on Randall’s positive energy and deep love of people. Randall has an amazing voice to listen to, smooth and full, with perfect control from his classical training. Listening to him play guitar, you will find yourself looking for the rest of the band, but your eyes will confirm that Randall is the only one playing.

But there is more to this evening!

A unique acoustic duo from the UK, Stryngs, will be opening the show. Stryngs, as a duo, is Strings singing hauntingly beautiful vocals and Martin Giles on guitar filling out the musical tapestry of their music. Stryngs sound is hard to capture in words. Lyrics like poetry seamlessly matched with rhythm and melody create a warm cocoon of sound. Listen closely – these gentle sounds are telling tales of emotion and passion, some wistful and longing but always seeking love and happiness.   

Please join us for this wonderful show! Tell all your friends, too.

Sunday, February 10, 2008: Emily Kurn with Randall Williams

Emily Kurn at Kerrville                      Randall Williams

You are in for a fabulous treat! We are most fortunate to host Emily Kurn from Anchorage, Alaska for our next house concert. Emily was a New Folk Finalist at the 2007 Kerrville Folk Festival and took Second Place in the 2007 Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition for “Mississippi Moon” and Honorable Mention for “If I Am American”.  Randall Williams is touring with Emily, so we get a double treat. Both have been playing most of their lives, were classically trained and have returned to their first love of singing, playing and writing songs.  Please take a few minutes to visit their sites and listen to their music. If you like acoustic music, I’m sure you’ll find a connection with these songs.  Seating is limited and reservations are required.
