Well, This one IS ready for PrimeTime! Join us for another incredible evening of music and friends to kick off our house concert series at the new CashPen in Erie, we're pleased to feature Thad Beckman from Portland, OR! Thad often plays as Tom Russell's talented lead sideman, but he is an engaging and masterful singer-songwriter in his own right.
We'll start the evening with a potluck at 6 pm, bring whatever you want to eat/drink to share. Some folks may be partaking in alcohol, but many, including your hosts, will not. Thad will perform from about 7 - 9 ish, and then afterward our musician friends can have a jam circle for those who are inspired to play some (bring your instruments if you want to play). Space is limited, so sign up early. We need a $15 donation (all proceeds will go to the artist) to hold your seat.
6 pm - Dec 28th
342 Decino Place, Erie CO 80516

What others are saying about Thad Beckman:
"Beckman plays an engaging blend of folk, singer-songwriter and blues music. Not everyone can pull off such a combination, but Beckman has chops, writing talent, a big personality and a bag full of true stories which all dovetail for a cool show.”
Jim Beal, San Antonio Express-News
"With commanding yet understated vocals as strong as his finger-style and slide guitar playing, Beckman crafts a quietly compelling set." Tom Hyslop - Blues Review
“A splendid player and a more than able vocalist -doing some of the smartest finger-picking you could wish for.” -
“If you have never heard Mr. Beckman play, you have really been missing out. Anyone in the audience could instantly recognize Mr. Beckman as a master of his craft.” - No Depression
“Thad Beckman goes a long way to assuage guitar thirst on the stunning “Guadalupe,” one of many that hold up with Russell’s best.” - Celine Keating, Acoustic Guitar
“With a voice that rasps like shoe leather on roadside gravel, and a finger-picked guitar on which notes fly by like railroad ties under a fast moving freight, not to mention a long history of vagabonding behind him, Thad Beckman seems ideally suited to the wandering troubadour's tradition.” - John T. Davis - Austin-American Statesman
