Santa Barbara House Concert for Steve & Dorian - 8pmSanta Barbara California
Contact email@example.com for details on this intimate, unplugged living room concert. $15 suggested donation. Steve Key shares concert billing with guitar ace Dorian Michael.
Steve Key is celebrating a new CD, his first release of new material in 15 years. "Steve Key with Dorian Michael" is a collection of seven Key originals, recorded April 2016, live at Sutton Sound in Atascadero. One of the originals, "Parking Lot 9", was inspired by Santa Barbara musician Bruce Goldish's adventures in playing a public garage on State Street. Steve is probably best-known as the producer of Songwriters At Play, a live music series held at numerous venues on the Central Coast, including SoHo in Santa Barbara. Before he arrived in this area ten years ago, Steve was a touring folksinger who played major concert venues and folk festivals across the country and in Canada. His songs were covered by dozens of folk and country acts, including Grammy-winner Kathy Mattea. You can preview the new CD tracks at http://stevekey.com/music-group-26.html
Dorian Michael is a man of many bands, but also a well-known solo performer specializing in acoustic fingerstyle guitar original compositions and interpretations of classic blues. He plays in The Cinders, CC Riders with Louie Ortega, The Irene Cathaway Rhythm & Blues Band, and also with jazz vocalist Nicole Stromsoe. More than 40 years as a working musician, Dorian has recorded many CDs, and is also a teacher with two books and three instructional DVDs to his credit. http://www.dorianmichael.com
