We have final details on the September 26 RUSS RISEMAN “life celebration” show: His guitars will be on display at the Big Easy from 7 to 9 pm for an open jam (Beatles songs preferred), before the night kicks into high gear with sets from ELDEMUR KRIMM, SUPERSOUL CHALLENGER (a one-time reunion, we’re pretty sure), and STRANGE PLEASURE. Everyone’s welcome.

SARA COX checked in this week to say she’s started laying down tracks for a new disc. No word on a title, etc., but she hopes to have something for Easter, maybe Christmas if things go really well.

The MAINE SONGWRITERS ASSOCIATION are bringing PIERCE PETTIS to town for those of you who want to learn from one of the leading lights on the contemporary singer/songwriter scene. He’ll hold a songwriter workshop October 11, at Acadia Recording Company’s studios, from 10 am to 12:30 pm. It’s $12 for the public, $7 for MSA members, and since the MSA is free to join, we’re pretty sure, you might as well sign up ahead of time.
