  In Austin, Texas—a town overflowing with gifted singer/songwriters and guitar players—Christine Albert & Chris Gage have a long track record of making beautiful music together, although both musicians' individual pedigrees are far more extensive.  Over the course of six duet albums, the duo has demonstrated that disparate backgrounds do not preclude musical soul mates from finding one another.

The Houston Press noted, “From George Jones and Tammy Wynette to Richard and Linda Thompson, male-female duets are one of popular music's most delightful permutations.  And the Austin-based duo of Christine Albert and Chris Gage easily slot right in with the best.”

Onstage, Albert's slender, dark beauty contrasts strikingly with Gage's craggy good looks and how gracefully they complement each other is easily apparent.  In 2003 Albert and Gage released their first live recording, Albert and Gage at Anderson Fair.  Dirty Linen commented that the set, which is reflective of their typical live performances, had “energy, humor, really fine duet singing, strong leads, original harmonies, a strong sense of partnership, personality, and musicality” and Sing Out! called it “a cohesive and exciting exploration of the roots of popular, mostly American, music”. 

Gage is a journeyman musician and South Dakota native who literally began touring in a station wagon at age 15.  In the mid-Seventies and early Eighties he led the popular Midwestern country-swing Red Willow Band, whose reunion shows still draw thousands of devoted fans.  From there he graduated to an eight-year tenure on piano with guitar virtuoso and country star Roy Clark, which included appearances on Hee Haw, The Tonight Show and The Grand Ole Opry.  After moving to Austin in 1991, Gage began commuting to San Antonio to take the reins as musical director for the Fiesta Texas theme park.

But it was during (and following) his next incarnation, as bandleader for West Texas alt.-country singer/songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore, that he began to carve out his own place in the Austin scene as an in-demand session player, accompanist and producer.  It was with Gilmore that Christine first heard Chris play and in 1997 Albert & Gage was formed.  The duo later toured as an opening act for Gilmore and as members of his ensemble.

 Christine cut her musical teeth in northern New Mexico after moving west from her childhood home in upstate New York.  Along with old friend and fellow New Mexico chanteuse Eliza Gilkyson (whom she also cites as an early influence and inspiration), Albert relocated to Austin in 1982 and began to distinguish herself as a singer-songwriter in a town where the bar for such artists is set very high indeed.

Christine Albert's French grandmother lived in Paris and her mother was born in Switzerland, so perhaps it's inevitable that the occasional Edith Piaf song migrates into her sets of original material and carefully chosen covers.  She has recorded a series of acclaimed albums of lovely Franco-Lone Star fusion - Texafrance (1992), Texafrance-Encore (2003) and Paris, Texafrance (2008). 

Christine released several other solo albums during the years before she met Chris, and had established a solid name on the Texas scene.  She was voted Female Vocalist of the Year in the Kerrville Music Awards poll and has appeared on Austin City Limits.  A longtime community activist, Albert is also cofounder/president of “Swan Songs”, a non-profit that fulfills musical last wishes by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness.  Ms. Albert currently serves as a Trustee on the National Board of Trustees of The Recording Academy. 

With the exception of 1997’s Jumpin’ Tracks, Albert and Gage’s albums have been recorded at their own MoonHouse Studio (a commercial facility in south Austin) and released on the artist owned MoonHouse Records.  Chris maintains a busy studio schedule and over the years they have expanded MoonHouse Records with Gage productions by Cowboy Johnson, Michael Austin and Abi Tapia.  Gage also plays lead guitar in Texas legend Jerry Jeff Walker’s band and is prominently featured on Walker’s latest CD, Moon Child; Christine also makes an appearance and sings a duet with Jerry Jeff of “San Antone Rose” by Susanna Clark.           

The duo’s most recent CD, Dakota Lullaby (2009), features twelve songs by an unheralded songwriter from South Dakota – Tom Peterson.  The CD landed in the top 40 on the Americana Music chart and the Top 20 on the EuroAmericana and US Folk-DJ charts.  FAME described it as “a pure, unadulterated labor of love…Albert & Gage, obviously on the same page at all times, blend voices effortlessly, fluctuating between smooth country and western swing like they were born to it.  Beneath those voices Gage placed a bang-up group of sidemen most musicians would kill for and handled production like the pro he has become.”     

Christine Albert and Chris Gage are well respected, seasoned music business veterans, but the joy they experience making music together is fresh and infectious.  “They can rock, boogie, swing, trot down country roads and stride down sophisticated boulevards and make it all sound as it should: like parts of a unified whole rather than a mishmash of different styles.  Albert and Gage have global class, musicality and charm.” (Houston Press)  You can’t ask for more than that.

Bost Family Traditions


$20.00
(tax and handling included)

The Bost Family Traditions, a music group based in Cochise County, Arizona, is the premier
Arizona acoustic singing group often described as Arizona’s First Family of Entertainment.
The Bost Family Traditions put on a lively show which features a dynamic acoustic country sound blending
the vocal harmony of the American West with the hard driving Appalachian tradition.
The sound is powerful and sincere with genre bending crossovers into more progressive folk and even old-time Rock and Roll.
Add a heaping helping of warm family atmosphere and it is easy to see why the Bost Family Traditions have been named
Arizona’s Family Band of the Year four times and Band of the Year
, Country Gospel Music Association (West) of Branson, MO.


The Bost Family Traditions originated in the family living room in Bisbee, Arizona in 2002.
Today – nearly 2000 shows later – the band has developed an extensive fan base that spans the Western United States from Branson to LA to Seattle.
The heavy performance schedule of the last decade has resulted in the development of a highly entertaining show one would expect from seasoned Branson acts.
The band’s stage presence is contagious and their execution is flawless.
Audiences are amazed at the maturity of these young artists.
The Bost Family Traditions consist of Jeff Bost, baritone singer and banjo picker.
Micah, 23 is an award winning mandolinist, pedal steel picker and bass singer.
Faith, 21 plays the fiddle adding a haunting tenor harmony to the mix.
Liberty, 19 is the guitar player and gifted lead singer touching audiences through her vocal expressions.

Don Pedi

Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
Show begins at 6:00 p.m.

$16.50

Don Pedi has been collecting, preserving and performing traditional Appalachian music for more than four decades. He has spent most of his life working, playing music and living alongside old time country musicians in North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. He’s developed a playing style that translates the older feel of the fiddle and banjo tunes, ballads and songs to the dulcimer, while maintaining the traditional rhythms and stylistic sensibilities.
  Don won first place in the first contest he entered at the 1974 Fiddler’s Grove Festival, in Union Grove, NC. By 1980 he’d won first place with such consistency that he was declared “Master Dulcimer Player” and removed from future competitions. By the time Don retired from entering contests in 1984, he’d amassed close to forty first place ribbons and trophies from throughout the Southeast.
  Don was awarded the” Most Outstanding Performer Award” at America’s oldest ongoing folk festival, the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival in Asheville, NC. He’s also received the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Award for significant contributions to traditional music.
  Since 1985 Don has championed traditional music on the radio. His weekly show “Close to Home” airs on NPR affiliate WCQS 88.1 in Asheville, NC and streams on the web.
  Don has appeared in the motion pictures “The Song Catcher” and “The Journey of August King”.
  He continues to perform and teach Dulcimer and History of Traditional Music at festivals and music camps across America.

Gary Allegretto & Rich DelGrosso



$16.50

Gary Allegretto

"Gary Allegretto is one of the classiest acts in the music business today, working only with the best backup musicians and taking the time to craft music noted not only for its quality but for its authenticity. ...intimately honest, and what's best about his genuineness is its completely offhand quality. If someone complains to you that they don't make "real" blues records anymore - albums that sound like lost classics yet retain the freshness of an individual - play Many Shades of Blue for them."
~Blues Revue Magazine

A down-to-earth guy with lifelong wanderlust and more than a few stories to tell, Gary Allegretto’s resume reads like a men's adventure wish-list: back-country forest ranger, forest firefighter on an elite "Hotshot" crew, LA city firefighter, "bouncer” in a couple rough honky-tonks and a Blues bar, cowboy and ranch hand, beach lifeguard, white-water rafting guide… and traveling Bluesman. His accomplishments are also widespread and diverse. He's a summa cum laude college graduate that Northern Arizona University recognizes as an "Alumni of Distinction". He's the recipient of multiple awards for his outreach to children. He’s also the founding director of Harmonikids, a humanitarian organization that gives music therapy with harmonicas to special needs kids worldwide. Through it all, Gary can barely remember a time when Blues and Roots music weren't a powerful part of his life, and playing harmonica wasn't as natural as his own voice. He started playing upon receiving his first harp at age 5 from his woodsman grandfather. Soon after, while attending a cultural festival he carelessly wandered away from his family following an irresistible sound ... a Big Walter Horton performance. As the loudspeakers blared something about a lost child, he knew he’d found his calling… and he followed.

Rich DelGrosso

“FOUR STARS! "DelGrosso confidently matches his plugged-in resonator mandolin to the electric guitar of Richardson on an impressive bunch of original songs that could only come from the marshlands and bayous of Southeast Texas. That old string-band instrument has an air of gracefulness about it. Above-average singers, the two share the ability to convey boundless joy ("She's Sweet") and romantic uncertainty ("Hard to Live With"), supported by a crackerjack rhythm section, the Texas Horns and local guests." ”
Frank-John Hadley , Downbeat

(This review placed Time Slips On By on the Downbeat list of Best CDs of 2011)

"...the solidly rocking string wizard... a breath of fresh air for the blues."
Blues&Rhythm, UK

"...his box o’ rocks voice, locomotive riffs, and sparks-a-flyin’ licks doing nothing but right. "
Hittin' The Note, GA

"Rich DelGrosso's performances are high energy affairs. He seems to channel the blues in a way that few artists can."
Phil Koehlhoeffer
Mississippi Valley Blues Festival Guide

"DelGrosso’s a groovemaster on guitar, just as on mando. It’s hard to believe it’s his "other" instrument. He’s got a hell of a singing voice, too: a full-throated baritone with the gravel, growl, and behind-the-beat passion that you only hear in the best blues singing."
Mark Hoffman,
co-author of MOANIN’ AT MIDNIGHT:
The Life and Times of Howlin’ Wolf
