 If you can imagine a jazz singer a blues singer a folk singer and a rock singer in one voice, then think of Patrice Pike.  She has been a big part of the Blue Door for years and now returns for a special solo show.  I can't say enough how much I love this woman and her music.  She is also very aware and involved in making our world a bettter and more peaceful and loving place.  Please join us as Patrice plays many songs from her long career aas well as new songs from her upcoming release.

 Just when you've decided Sayers is a folky songwriter, some rapid-fire lyrics smack you, the guitar twangs country, then blues, and you decide to give up all preconceived notions. This guy is all over the place. And what a great place, blending blues, rock, and country into a unique gestalt. He seems to be making music for all the right reasons so please welcome him for his first ever Blue Door show.

Billy Joe Shaver is among a handful of the most important songwriters of the last fify years.  He brought a poetry to county music and a sense of melody that few have ever been able to equal.  Waylon Jennings was the first to really bring Shaver's music to a larger audience when he recorded the album,  "Honky Tonk Heros" in 1973.  Although Bobby Bare had recorded Shaver before that, it was Waylon and the John Anderson hit with "Old Chunk Of Coal" that brought him to the attention of many.  It's been over 6 years since Billy Joe was last at the Blue Door so make sure you get your tickets now!!
