Yeah — we’re re-grouping after the taller Rancher’s extended bout with laryngitis; heading north this week for a:

For now, here’s a reminder of what we’re about when we do manage to make it to the show:
Friends, it’s been a while since we’ve posted. Life, as you know, is that which happens while you’re making other plans.
Meanwhile: the big World keeps on turning, Music continues to call to us, and we’ve decided to try to build a bridge between those two Large Realities — by making a live record.
Yup: we plan to document our stage show, hi-fi style, and create a lasting record (in the original meaning of the word) of What We Do. After three and a half years and more than a hundred performances, we figured it was time.
Session Number One is THIS WEEK: Sunday, Dec. 7, 7:00 PM, at our very own Red Shack in Cambria CA. Seating will be *very* limited (it’s a tiny place) — please email for directions and to confirm your seat (click on “Contact R4P”). There will be a hat, and you’ll be free to put money in it if you want ($15 suggested donation), but our main purpose here is to rope in a small but mighty audience for the righteous mojo needed to propel the kind of performance we want to capture. Come on out and help us on our way — here at our first show for R4P LIVE — 2015!
Next date: Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, 8:00 PM — Painted Sky Studio, Harmony CA.
Further details on that show — as well as Show #3 (tba) — coming soon after the Holidays. ¡Gracias! — hope to see you on the Ranch…
We’re back in San Luis Obispo –*tonight* — to benefit Transitions Mental Health Association; & joining local singer-songwriter Jody Belsher in support of her new Documentary Film “The Other Side of Cannabis” raising awareness of the troubling aspects of the national trend towards legal/social acceptance of marijuana usage.
Show starts, 7:00 PM. $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
Ladies and gentlemen: we’re playing next week in SLO for the last time until next Fall. We have a new song to share, “That Bloody Sun,” about the plight of undocumented trans-border migrants in the American southwest — and we’re sharing the bill with Colorado singer/songwriter Gabrielle Louise: http://www.gabriellelouise.com/
As somebody once said, “A splendid time is guaranteed for all.”

Live at Kulak’s Woodshed, Oct. 4 last year: something to hum under your breath while observing flags flying at half-mast on every UC campus this week:
“Can we lay down our pride and look at what we have done
to turn a child of light into a son of a gun?”
