Local music downloads and upcoming museum shows

Big Jack Earl's new album, Peppercorn Rent, is now available for purchase at CD Baby. The website also has photos up from recent shows.

The Yankee Zydeco Company will be appearing at WXCS 2nd Anniversary Picnic Sunday, July 16 from noon until dark at the Wishing Well Park, Route 6/19, Venango, PA. The schedule goes:
LIVE MUSIC
Tiger Maple String Band---2pm (download "Jenny on the Railroad")
Yankee Zydeco Company---3:30pm
Studiodawg---5pm
Fitzgerald and Beach---6:30pm

This event is free and open to the public. We ask that you bring a dish (tureen style). Boy would I love to see a community station in the Franklin area... And BTW local bands, I'd really like to do mroe profiles of you on the blog,so contact me OK?

I had big plans to go to JazzErie's 11th annual Jazz and Blues Walk starting Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Erie Art Museum Annex, 423 State St., with an hourlong reception featuring food and drink served to the backdrop of the Charles Ventrello Quartet. But, with family coming in, I'll file it in my, maybe next year bin....Sigh...

Also at the Erie Art Museum, tomorrow, will be the free public reception from 8-10 p.m. for "Charting a Century of Change", "David Hayes: Small Sculptures and Studies", "Carol Cornelison: A Return to Nature".

I haven't been to the Venango Museum of Art, Science and Industry on Seneca Street in Oil City since I wasn't hired as a docent nearly ten years ago, but the new "Signs of Our Past," featuring signs, artifacts, photographs and other memorabilia from the oil era in Venango County, might just get me there, grudge or no grudge.








Michelle’s CafĂ©, located along Main Street in Clarion, is host to an art show this month to four area developmentally disabled adults: Larry Miller, Jonathan Burns, Sidney Bell and Kathryn Pfaff. All pieces are for sale.

Dittman,

Thanks for continuing to mention Yankee Zydeco Company on your blog!

We're playing tonight in Edinboro as well, at the Evergreen Hotel.

I'm sure the band would love to talk to ya if you were interested. I'm just the soundguy/webmaster. Drop our bassist a line if you want to talk via e-mail: ryan@yankeezydeco.com
