Tompkins Square Label Presents...
« on: February 26, 2013, 03:26:39 PM »
I received an e-mail from Tompkins Square. The following may be of interest to some:

Thurs. March 14th, 2013
St. David's Episcopal Church 301 E. 8th St. (Bethell Hall, upstairs)
Austin TX

8PM  Harry Taussig (first live performance - ever !)
8:50  Alice Gerrard (legendary folk singer)
9:50  Hiss Golden Messenger (NC singer-songwriter)
10:50 Daniel Bachman (VA guitarist)
11:50 Luther Dickinson (N. Miss. Allstars)
and between sets : Terry Waldo (ragtime piano kingpin)

Alice Gerrard, known for her work with Hazel Dickens and Mike Seeger, is recording an album for Tompkins Square, slated for Fall release.  This is her first SXSW performance. American Primitive Guitar pioneer Harry Taussig will perform live for the first time anywhere, ever. His first album was released in 1965! Hiss Golden Messenger have a new album out first week of March. We released their last one, 'Poor Moon' to much acclaim. Luther Dickinson recorded a 78 rpm record for us last year. Terry Waldo wrote the definitive history of ragtime, studied with Eubie Blake, and is probably the greatest living ragtime pianist. His Tompkins Square debut will appear later this year.

I really admire a guy who waits 48 years to play a gig!
