David Miner


$22.00

Miner's style is a fresh take on an old classic. Honoring his heroes and the timeless style of the country music of yesterday, while still writing music from an authentic perspective. “Miner displayed remarkable guitar chops in-between singing about dreams of Montana and ghosts by his home in Fort Collins, Colorado” says Brett Garske of “Old Guy at the Show”. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, David Miner took an early liking to classic country music. As songwriting and guitar quickly became his passion at a young age, he immersed himself in the history of country music and the many talented men and women that contributed to the genre. 

Miner released his album “Silver Valley” in early 2021. “If you are a lover of the country music of yesteryear you are sure to find something to love in this 13 track collection. David’s voice is clean, crisp, and the lyrics are undeniable and effortless”, says Old West Americana. “Traditional country themes of relationships (good and bad), rural stories and social concerns, and closeness to nature are explored in thirteen original songs on this expertly self produced record” says Eilis Boland of Lonesome Highway, going on to say that the album is “proof positive that one doesn’t have to hail from the USA’s Deep South to make good country music”.

Country Willie Edwards
Solo Show!


$22.00

From the east Texas backwoods, Country Willie Edwards brings songs of days gone by, women, honky tonks, and the unknown. Some call him a recluse, many consider him folk legend.

A farmer by trade who rarely ventures into the city, Country Willie is a man from another time and place. Born on an island in the pines, he grew up leading hymns in front of a small rural Baptist congregation and as a teenager toured the east Texas opry circuit with the likes of Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert. Known for epic live sets both solo and featuring rotating band members, he writes and records all his own music. A favorite in Austin, Country Willie Edwards is now garnering attention as a true outsider songwriter around Texas and the south.

With hundreds of original songs to his credit, it has been said that no other artist can write about simpler times, life on other planets, freedom, and salvation in a way that will leave you believing in all of it.

Tony Ramey

$22.00

 

Ramey says he "came out of the hollows of West Virginia when he graduated from college with his Masters in English Literature," but those hollows shaped and molded him into who he would become as a songwriter. Most of his relatives were artisans of wood, canvas, and whatever instrument they picked up and held long enough to shake hands with--true Appalachians in their spiritual connection with the earth and its ancient story.

 

Music for Ramey was something that just happened at family gatherings where everyone played or sang, or at church meetings full of hymns painted by a cappella mountain voices desperate for the blood of Jesus. Although he wrote music, played, and sang in high school bands, Ramey never got the “fever” until he won a local contest with The Dixie Flyer Band, taking them to state finals in the True Value Hardware Country Showdown and winning $1000.

 

The win brought thousands of country music fans throughout the tri-state area (Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky) to recognize the “homegrown” talent. Ramey continued along the musical path opening for every major act booked in the area (Dan Seals, Billy Ray Cyrus, Merle Haggard, Clay Walker, Brooks and Dunn, and the list goes on and on) and gaining a reputation as the hottest local singer in the Tri-State.

 

Having garnered four gold and two platinum albums and a Broadcast Music Incorporated airplay award, Tony Ramey relocated to Texas after his Nashville stint on Music Row writing songs for Trisha Yearwood, Doug Stone, George Strait, and a host of other Country Music icons.

 

Through his R&B, Americana, and singer-songwriter style, Ramey began getting album credits on household name artists not seven months after moving to Music City, and still has legendary artists who are fans today rummaging for songs through his catalog of more than 3500 works. The vibrant landscapes and live music scene of Texas called him out on the road with an independent record label in 2011, and he has toured all over the US for the last 10 years, stopping at theaters and listening rooms everywhere.


His songwriting is rivaled only by his vocal prowess and raw energy on stage. From acoustic solo act to front man for his own ensemble—"Contraband"—Ramey commands audiences wherever he goes, and creates an unforgettable experience for ticket buyers who want to hear a true craftsman in his wheelhouse.

Kusin Ulf


$22.00

We, Ross and Marta Nelson, now live in Nacogdoches, TX.  Three years ago we moved from Minnesota, where many Scandinavian immigrants settled.  We both have some of that heritage ourselves.

Ross’ second cousin Ulf (pronounced “oolf”) visited from Sweden a few times, and we have visited him at his home, too.  Thanks to him, we have many of the folksongs they still use in Sweden today.  The summer solstice is a huge celebration in Scandinavia, there called Midsommar Dag. In his honor, we call our duet “Kusin Ulf”, Swedish for “Cousin Ulf”.

We have since played for the Midsommar celebrations in our town of Scandia MN, as well as the Swedish Christmas celebrations there of Santa Lucia,  and various Lutefisk dinners at various churches around our area.  (Lutefisk is a traditional Scandinavian fish dinner.)

We studied Swedish language for a few years, although we are not fluent. 

We have been married 32 years now.  When we first met, Marta knew only classical music, and Ross played Bluegrass and OldTimey tunes on the guitar.  Ross first learned guitar on his own starting around 12 years old.  He has since studied with Adam Granger, who has played with the Powdermilk Biscuit Band on “Prairie Home Companion”.   Marta eagerly learned fiddle tunes from Ross’ flat-picking!  We can’t tell you how much we enjoy playing those tunes together, too.

Dana Cooper


$22.00
Doors open at 5:00.
Show begins at 6:00.

 

Cooper’s lifelong passion & devotion to music began at age 2 in Kansas City. His father, George, was a huge influence. One of Dana's earliest memories is of his father taking him to the Calico Cat, popping a coin in the jukebox and listening to Dana sing along with Hank Williams & Ernest Tubb.

At age 20 a move to LA resulted in a record deal with Elektra Records where he recorded his first album with members of “The Section” Russ Kunkel and Leleand Sklar, as well as other luminary players Jim Horn, Al Perkins, Jim Gordon, Joe Osborne, and Lee Holdridge. This album still wins accolades today and was recently reissued on the Warner/Japan label.

After several years in California and a year recording in Seattle, Cooper moved to Texas where he wrote and performed with Shake Russell. They released several independent albums and one album for Southcoast/MCA.

Dana formed his own experimental bands, DC3, and Nuclear Family and released his first solo project Complicated Stuff. In 1988 he moved to Nashville, TN to pursue his songwriting career collaborating with other songwriters.

Cooper’s songs have been recorded by a variety of artists such as bluegrass singer Claire Lynch, Irish vocalist Maura O’Connell, Nashville songbird Jonell Mosser, as well as songwriters Pierce Pettis and Susan Werner. His incredible catalogue and musical sensibilities have led to endorsements from AirPlay Direct and Elixir Strings. 

With his upcoming CD I Can Face the Truth Cooper faces hard truths head on with humor and heartfelt expression. Joining forces with Co-Producer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Coleman the two enlisted some of the best songwriters, singers, and musicians from the US and Ireland. Collaborators in the studio include Tom Kimmel, Kim Richey, Jonell Mosser, Maura O’Connell, Brother Paul Brown, David Starr, Rebecca Folsom, and Gillian Tuite.
