... If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine,
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung;
Would you hear my voice come through the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own? ...
WoW! Robert Hunter is playing at the Stafford Palace Theater! this Thursday ( Oct. 3)!
Well, are you going?
It has been more than a decade since Robert Hunter has toured. It's not that he hasn't been busy ... oh, contraire, mon fraire ... during this guy has been more than busy working with with Mickey Hart, Billy Kreutzman and 7 Walkers, Bruce Hornsby, Jim Lauderdale, Steve Kimock, David Nelson of New Riders of the Purple Sage, Los Lobos, Pete Sears (previously of Jefferson Airplane, but now with Moonalice) and Rob Barraco of DSO, among others.
The fine folks at the Stafford Palace Theater gave Uncle Todd and the Captain a pair of tickets to Robert Hunter to give away. Being the great folks that Todd and the Captain are, they passed them along to me to give to my listeners. I'm so psyched that I'm able to do that. As a matter of fact, this coming Sunday, Sept. 29, somewhere between 6 and 9 a.m., on the RustyString Cafe', when you hear the first song I play that Robert Hunter either wrote or had a hand in writing, call me at the station at 860-486-9487 and the tickets are yours. I only have one pair, so you're going to need to know your Robert Hunter to win them.
EDIT: CONGRATS TO GARY for hearing a Robert Hunter penned song and won the pair of tickets. See ya there, Gary. =)
Getting the opportunity to see Robert Hunter in the small room of the Palace Theater is sort of a dream come true for me. I've seen several shows there and just love that place. So, hopefully I'll see you on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Stafford Palace Theater.
