May 7th: Ralph White returns to Willimantic Records along with Joe Russo and Izikhotane

Joe Russo (from Spectral Fangs):

Ralph White:

Music starts at 3pm on Sunday, May 7, 2017

A free show open to people of all ages.

Donations to the musicians are encouraged.

One of our foremost instrumentalists and a true hidden American treasure,... his intimate, nuanced musical language has slowly revealed itself, along a path that meanders from the apple orchards of British Columbia to the villages of Zimbabwe and Namibia, from the lonesome moors of Ireland to Australia, Brittany, Peru, Louisiana and beyond. There is also the influence of White's hometown of Austin, Texas, a rich musical crossroads in and of itself.

Along with Danny Barnes and Mark Rubin, White completed the original and definitive lineup of country/bluegrass mavericks (and recent Texas Music Hall of Fame inductees) The Bad Livers. He now performs his singular blend of ancient rural folk music and original songwriting as a soloist. -


Thanks to Stefan for the flyer and putting this entire thing together. 


Music starts at 2pm

A free show with donations to the musicians very much encouraged.

DAWN COOK: "I believe that art can and should be used as a tool for social and political justice. Some of my work deals with a variety of social and political issues, from poverty and homelessness to the battleground for women's reproductive rights.
"I am largely a self-taught artist, though have taken a few classes over the years. My first art show was at the Populous Pudding, an underground artist collective in Willimantic in mid 80s. Over the years I've gone on to participate in numerous exhibitions, from W.A.G (Worcester Artists Group), Gallery on Main - Empty Spaces Project in Putnam, Willimantic Records, Art Attack and Chaos and Joy (Vulturetown Arts - Willimantic) among others, and most recently with The Committee at Artspace in Hartford. I've also had several drawings published in zines and contributed artwork to charity events.
"I am also a musician and have been performing for many years: from classical to punk rock. For more information on musical endeavors, please check out this link":
