The Cowboy Way


$22.00

Jim Jones is a native Texan, a student of the West and a life-long devotee of all things cowboy.  His award-winning songwriting, guitar-picking and unique vocal style keeps him in demand at music venues throughout the country.  Jim has produced eight Western Americana albums and three award-winning children’s character education videos.  He has written three Western novels, Rustler’s Moon, (2009); Colorado Moon, (2011) and Waning Moon, (2013).  His eighth Western Americana album, Borrowed Time, released in April of 2012, produced Western Writers of America 2013 Spur Award winning Western Song of the Year, “Texas is Burnin’” and 2014 Western Writers Spur Finalist for Western Song of the Year, “Race with the Wind”.  His song, “Cowboys of New Mexico,” was the New Mexico Music Awards 2009 Western Song of the Year.  Jim was named the Western Music Association Male Performer of the Year for 2014 and won the Academy of Western Artists 2015 Western Song of the Year with “The Fires of Goliad”. In 2017 "Halfway Down the Devil's Road" ( written by Jim Jones and Allan Chapman) from "The Cowboy Way" CD won the Western Writers of America Spur Award for best Western song.
Doug Figgs is a horseshoer, a cowboy, and a Western music singer/songwriter. In the last few years he has turned his attention to his love of music with the emphasis on Western themes. The Western Music Association just named him the 2015 Songwriter of the Year and his song “Socios” was named WMA Song of the Year. He also won the Academy of Western Artists 2015 Western Male Vocalist of the Year and the coveted Spur Award for Best Western Song from the Western Writers of America in 2014 “Charlie & Evangeline.” He has toured the Southwest extensively and continues to turn out his own variety of Western music, from hard driving songs with a tinge of southern rock, to beautiful ballads and everything in between.  Doug released his CD “Partners” in 2014 and his award winning CD “A Cowboy Like Me” in Feb. 2016. 
Mariam, a native of Germany, jokingly states:  “I always felt I was accidentally switched at birth and grew up in a strange land far, far away, where there were no roaming cattle, no wide open spaces, no singing cowboys.”  Making the best of his “dis-location”, Mariam cut his musical teeth on a wide variety of musical styles, from Classical, Jazz and Pop to Rock, Country and Blues.  He enjoyed a colorful career as a multi-instrumentalist, at home on stage as well as in the recording studio.  He gained a reputation as a diverse session player, award-winning arranger and producer.  When his travels brought him to New Mexico, he felt he’d finally returned to his true home land.  Realizing how much he loved horseback ridin’, backporch pickin’ and two-steppin’ on Saturday nights, he quickly caught on to the cowboy way. Currently calling Socorro, New Mexico home, Mariam is a private music teacher, collaborator on Doug Figgs’ projects and provides the lead guitar and 3rd harmony vocal for The Cowboy Way.

Kieran Kane & Rayna Gellert
Sunday, April 7
Doors open at 5:00 PM
Show begins at 6:00 PM


$16.50

Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert’s critically acclaimed duo debut, The Ledges , was released in February of
2018. Now they’re poised to release another album just thirteen months later.
“When we finished The Ledges we were busy. We played club dates, house concerts, festivals, the Grand
Ole Opry -- but all the while we just kept writing. The writing never stopped. I hadn’t had that experience
since The O’Kanes,” Kieran says, referring to his seminal country duo with Jamie O’Hara.
“Well, I hadn’t had that experience ever ,” laughs Rayna.
When the Sun Goes Down (due March 20, 2019, on Dead Reckoning Records) is the next step on a
journey that began when Rayna heard Kieran perform at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in 2015. “I
immediately recognized a shared wavelength. It was startling. I knew we were supposed to be playing
music together,” Rayna says. ”But then I had to convince Kieran.”
Not such an easy task. “I wasn’t even playing music then. She heard me at my one gig of the year [with
Kane Welch Kaplin], and I was like, ‘I don’t really play music anymore. I paint. My brain doesn’t have
space for both.’” But she persisted.
Now Kieran’s paints lie dormant, and the songs keep coming.
The shared wavelength Rayna heard was one of minimalism, of restraint. An approach to music that isn’t
about showing off, but about getting to the heart of something.
It’s the old saw about Michelangelo -- that when he was asked how he managed to carve “David” out of a
chunk of marble, he said, “It’s simple: just cut away everything that doesn’t look like David.” While Kieran
and Rayna would balk at comparisons to Michelangelo, they do share his process of cutting away
everything that doesn’t belong. The reduction of words and notes. The drive to find the parts that need to
be there, leaving everything inessential on the floor.
Kieran arrived on that wavelength by following a path from rock and roll to bluegrass to country to
americana (a genre many would say he helped establish). Rayna got there via old-time music, a musical
subculture where groundedness and nuance take precedence over showiness.
When the Sun Goes Down finds the duo digging deep into this shared aesthetic. Recorded live at home,
the songs are there in all their unvarnished beauty.
“There is technology that makes it easy to perfect a performance. But most of the records that we’ve been
influenced by were live, and you can hear the imperfections. That doesn’t detract from the music -- if
anything, it enhances it because it gives a sense of immediacy,” Rayna says.
As Kieran puts it,”We’re always more concerned with what feels good than what sounds good.”
Don’t let that scare you off.
It sounds as good as it feels.

Albert & Gage


$22.00

Austin, Texas duo Albert and Gage (Christine Albert and Chris Gage) have a personal and musical chemistry that radiates from the stage.  The joy they experience making music together is evident as they travel through their musical roots, moving from country and folk to blues and French chansons.  The integrity of their musicianship and the rare blend of their voices create a unique and cohesive sound as Gage effortlessly switches from guitar to piano and accordion throughout their set to follow the mood of the music. 
Christine Albert has been described as a “wondrous singer with a beautiful focus and unrestrained grace”, and had a prolific recording career as a solo artist before meeting Gage, including the acclaimed “Texafrance” series, a bilingual tribute to her European family.  Chris Gage has been called "...songwriter, singer, dobro player, ace guitarist, keyboard player, mandolin picker, and a generally electric powerhouse with inspiration to spare." He’s toured with Red Willow Band, Roy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and is currently playing guitar with Jerry Jeff Walker.
Since teaming up in 1996 they have released six albums on their own MoonHouse Records label and built the successful MoonHouse Studio, where Gage maintains a full schedule as an in demand producer and musician.

Claude Bourbon
Friday, May 24

$16.50

Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories. 
Claude’s inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is ’Claude’.
It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic’s to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings. 
Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell.
It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude’s gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.
Now based in the UK, some of this guitarists’ influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician; Paco De Lucia: Deep Purple’s Richie Blackmore; Joaquin Rodrigo; JJ Cale; JS Bach….
Claude has played countless venues, including Glastonbury Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Colne Great British & Blues Festival, Rock O'Z Arene, Avenches, Switzerland, among others. He has shared the stage in Europe and the USA with countless musicians, Calvin Russel, Charlie Morgan (Elton John, Gary Moore), Jan Akkerman (Focus), Steve Grossman (Miles Davis), Herbie Armstrong ( Van Morisson), Jose barrense Dias and many more.
Experience an evening of exploration in the unique ambiance of the Thumb!
