For Immediate Release: October 10, 2011
Longtime Mason/Castell area artist/musician, Spider Johnson, joins Bobby Zamora and host, Graham Warwick for a PuffBunny House Concert evening of acoustic folk music on the back patio at Fredericksburg’s historic Altmeuller Haus, 216 East Austin Street. One of oldest dogtrot houses in Fredericksburg, the Altmeuller Haus is conveniently located next door to the Fredericksburg Visitor’s Center and Chamber of Commerce. Bluesman Graham Warwick will warm the crowd up around 7pm, and Bobby will take the stage around 7:30pm, followed by Spider around 8pm.
Spider Johnson is part of the Lubbock music legacy that has produced such luminaries as Buddy Holly, Joe Ely, The Flatlanders, Terry Allen and too many others to list here. While he has maintained a career as a visual artist, music has always remained a passion and he performs “just enough to support my music habit.” Spider has performed and recorded with many notables which included a stint on PBS on Austin City Limits with Townes Van Zandt, Butch Hancock, David Halley and Jimmie Dale Gilmore.
“Spider’s stories are just as entertaining as his songs and we are excited to feature him in an intimate setting, where people can really listen.” says Warwick, who also hosts an afternoon picker’s circle called, “Pickin’ on the Porch” at the Altmeuller Haus from 1-4pm each Saturday.
“Bobby Zamora writes and sings mostly goofy songs. Songs about love lost, love never realized, unfortunate bodily functions. He’s done this for some 40 years, but just completed what he considers his first official CD — “Songs of Grief and Misery.” Is it a polished piece? No. Does it benefit from a host of multitalented contributors? Certainly not. Was it years in the making? Nope. Is it done? Yes. As far as Bobby Zamora’s concerned..”
This is the second in a cozy monthly series of house concerts sponsored by Puff Bunny Records. Water, sodas, and tea, are provided, but it’s BYOB, along with your favorite lawn chair and a potluck snack to share if you wish. There are some chairs available, though seating is limited. As host, Graham Warwick says, “IT’S BRING YOUR OWN EVERYTHING!”
