Dawn and Hawkes July 26th in the Radio Room

Drawing inspiration from their time spent on the road in North America and South Australia while navigating a shared journey through mortality, grief, the after-life and compassion for different perspectives, Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes offer what Performer Magazine deems as “songs of introspective bliss that genuinely helps the listener feel the spirit of life.” Their sound is highly intimate. The Houston Press review states Dawn & Hawkes are “outstanding musicians individually, and they are absolutely magical together. Their harmonies and chemistry speak for themselves, and audiences recognize from the first note that they are something very special.” Their initial duo effort, Golden Heart, climbed to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums. They have performed with Alison Krauss & Dan Tyminsky, Patty Griffin, Old 97s, Robert Earl Keen, and many others. Their second album titled The Other Side chronicles the life paths they've traveled and will be released this summer. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Gerry Spehar returns to the Valley August 2nd!

Gerry Spehar is a folk country troubadour from Colorado and a man on a mission. Hot on the heels of last year's critically acclaimed "I Hold Gravity” the singer songwriter guitar picker is back with a full blown old school protest album. Our new president really got Gerry's goat, but unlike his fellow performers, he's done something very specific about the situation. Think Woody Guthrie backed by psychedelic guitars and funky New Orleans horns. I See Hawks In L.A., prog instrumentalists Double Naught Spy Car, madman Tommy Jordan and L.A. legends John David, Brantley Kearns, Gabe Witcher and Rick Shea are the studio band. Doors open at 7pm show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.  Tickets available by calling 970-241-8801 or online
