I hope you’re enjoying the election season. It’s quite something.
I have a show coming up at the Bazaar Café in San Francisco on Sunday October 30, from 6-8pm.
I’ll be sharing the night with singer/songwriter Bill Leigh. I’ve known Bill for a few years now but he is still kind of an enigma to me. When I google his name I get Editor of Bass Player Magazine, which I know is true, and a few listings for his recent singer/songwriter shows. I know he writes good songs because I have heard him play them. But this is where my knowledge ends and the mystery of Bill Leigh begins.
For myself, like many people I have gone through the fire and I continue to go through it. These are hard times that we live in and I have found that music and live performance are one of the few things that make me feel rejuvenated. Yes, performing myself but also seeing other people perform. There’s nothing like being in an audience and going on a journey with an audience, no matter how big or small. And as a performer when it works it’s magic. My last gig was one for the books and I was ecstatic after words. I’m hoping for more and more of that feeling!
Please come out to the Bazaar Café. Come alone, bring friends, just show up.
If you have any requests let me know beforehand so maybe I can practice them. You can hear all my albums at: www.alexwalsh.com
And I’ll be playing some new songs too. I have one called The Lady With The Blue Balloons that will be making it’s world premiere.
Have a great week and a half!
Alex Walsh & Bill Leigh
