Bruce Hayes: Home

Greetings from Howard Colorado… Much has come to pass since we last addressed this list back in November. Welcome to the age of crazy. We just produced a show at the historical Coaldale Schoolhouse with Grant Gordy and Ross Martin (see pic by Ben Knight). They are taking the flat-picking guitar duo to new heights! Great turnout. Hope to see y'all again for Jeff Black on 3/23, and Don Richmond, April 15. Had a Helluva good time opening for David Lindley in Denver - very greasy indeed. Love that man. Check out the new vid for Christ by Mel Lee:

Gits & Gigs arrives in your inbox at random moments such as this affording a level of surprise and intrigue. Bereft of fancy formatting, this stark enews contains no added coloring or flavoring and no preservatives to protect it's impermanence save for your still viable memory. Suffice to say that a few good gigs have gone unmentioned in this international correspondence relying on regional emails and Facebook posts for promo. If you reside in the greater Salida, Gunnison, Front range, or Telluride areas and would like to get local gig updates lemme know. -BH
