Pssst – Jazz in the Canyon is almost here

Psst…. Jazz in the Canyon is in just a couple of days. Begins September 30 and ends in the evening of October 1 with the Ron Jackson Trio playing. So excited. Don’t you know…. Fall is the best time of year to come…. The crowds have gone home, the fishing is good. And, oh yeah, so is the music….. If you didn’t know, Dunsmuir is right off Interstate 5 in Siskiyou County about an hour from the Oregon border. It’s 45 minutes’ drive from Redding, and a three and half hour drive from Sacramento. And we have an Amtrak for those of you don’t want to drive. And lots of nice hotels and restaurants. Jazz in the fall

Beautiful Day So Far

IMG_6163It has been a beautiful, fun-filled day so far. The The Ol’ Dunsmuir Faire was a smash hit. The general consensus from vendors and attendees is that it was very enjoyable experience. Wild Roots concerts at Pops was super fun. While it was a kid’s concerts, it seemed the parent’s had even more than the kids. Scott Silbert with Mitch Ross on drums was perfect in every way. And, at  everyone’s favorite store, The Dunsmuir Hardware.  The grand opening at Dunsmuir’s Mossbrae Hotel was elegant, breezy, social and fun. The Lone Arranger reverberated sweet sounds throughout the lobby. The Benny Goodman Egg special at the Cornerstone was delicious, as were Rick Garrett’s guitar melodies.

Now onward to the Wine & Paint evening happening at Yolanda Kurger eXp Realty. The theme is saxophone and sunflowers, but, of course, paint what you like. Jefferson Justice will be playing at the Dunsmuir Brewery and Terry Robb will be playing at Pops Performing Arts & Cultural Center.

IMG_6164Crave’s Barbecue in the courtyard at Pops will be open  from 4 pm tonight through out the remainder of tonight’s Terry Robb concert at Pops Performing Arts & Cultural Center, as well as tomorrow’s concert with The Charles Valona Trio and Allison Scull & Victor Martin and the Midnite Band.
