Summer Updates

July 8th, 2009

Hey Everyone…

a big thanks to the guys in Max Creek and Scott Murawski in particular for once again extending a generous friendly hand and having me up onstage for an incredible jam…make sure you check out Scott at one of several appearance his new project with Bill Kreutzman are making at festivals this summer…hopefully there will be a tour in the fall…

Max Creek with Kris Kehr ‘You’re The Only One’ 5-28-05

-this is me sitting in with Creek in 2005, Wormtown I believe…

There are a few new things posted on the Archives-thanks, Chris…
Manatawny Creek Ramblers/Brass Lantern – 1/17/09 (incorrectly marked as 3/6/9)
-this was a show we did with friend/percussionist Matt Cullen

Kris Kehr & Mike Miz/Brass Lantern – 6/18/09
-this was the successful recent show Mike and I did together..the first set we play separately, the second was together and a lot of fun…Mike and I will most likely be working together again on an ‘all-star’ project revolving around the acoustic roots music of Jerry Garcia and Old & In The Way/Garcia-Grisman that is to take place on the anniversary of the Old & in the Way album early next year. I’ll let you know more when I hear it.

There are a few other things up on the archives, check ‘em out when you get a chance…

The new Manatawny Creek Ramblers EP ‘Meet Me By The Moonlight‘ is now available on CDBaby

I have recently been working on a new blog and podcast for Black Mountain Underground, my old radio show…it’ll be close to what I used to produce for Homegrownradionj, but maybe a little longer than a strict hour and you will be able to hear it in it’s entirety whenever you choose..the first show will be a mix bag featuring some rare studio and live stuff as well as a sampling of official release things for perspective. Every other show will most likely feature one particular thing, such as Steve Earle’s collaboration with Del McCoury, or Dylan’s mid-90’s acoustic soundboards, I’ll be able to provide more back story for what You listen to with the blog, so keep an eye out for that. Since I’ve been teaching myslef how to actually produce a podcast, I’m also going to periodically produce one’s with a focus on my musical output for this particular page.

The Man in Me – this is Kris Kehr & Stone Poets during their tenure at the Phyrst in State College circa 1999
Jig’s Jig – this is from the currently out-of-print second Kris Kehr album
Only Time Tells – an unreleased home demo song

Here’s some upcoming gigs in July-

Wednesday, TOMORROW the 8th I’ll be playing solo acoustic at Emily’s on RT. 10 outside Mohnton, PA from 6 to 9PM, no cover with great food. I play this one every other Wednesday through the summer, so I’ll be back 7/22, 8/5 & 19…

On Friday the 10th I’ll be playing solo acoustic on the deck at Berties near Stoney Creek Mills from 7 to 10. I might pop in on Skrappy from MCR who’s at the Tap Room at 10, too…

the next day, the Manatawny Creek Ramblers will be playing as part of the Quigley Summer Fest ‘09 near Mechanicsburg, PA.

Then on Sunday, July 12th I’ll be back with STONE POETS at Zeno’s Pub in State College during Art’s Fest with JK, Rev and Skrappy guesting on drums and getting ready for our set at the Jammin’ for the Animals Humane Society Benefit at Blue Falls Grove on July 25th. Hopefully our good friend Dave Mudgett will sit in on Sunday well.

-this was shot at zeno’s earlier this year…

On Thursday the 16th the Manatawny Creek Ramblers will do our first Thirsty Third Bluegrass Thursday at the Brass Lantern…I’ll bet you can figure the next one out…if not, see below…

On Saturday, July 18th I’ll be at Boxer’s in Huntington, PA with JK at 10PM. We’ll be back at Zeno’s the next day, as are every sunday…

And on Saturday July 25th I’ll be pulling double duty with Stone Poets and the Youngers at Jammin’ For The Animals Festival at Blue Falls Grove near Leesport, PA.

Below is the next couple of months…thanks, and see you soon…
