Steve’s Guitars triples the music
The small music room of Steve’s Guitars is practically bursting at the seams this weekend. Instead of just one act Friday night, the music shop has two – Pierce Pettis and Tom Kimmel. And instead of no bands on Saturday, there’s one really great one – Eddie From Ohio. Kimmel has been writing songs since 1980, when Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman of the Byrds fame started recording his songs. Since then, the likes of Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, Joe Cocker, Shawn Colvin, Randy Travis and others have recorded dozens of his songs. His compositions have sold millions of records around the world, achieving gold and platinum sales in many countries. Tom’s compositions have appeared in motion pictures and TV shows. In 1993, he won the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas as did his friend Pierce Pettis.Pierce plays a powerful guitar, and his rich vocals will be a delight to hear in a small room. This summer, he released his eighth album, “Great Big World,” and critics say it’s his best one yet. Come check out his Avalon and Lowden guitars, handmade in County Down, Ireland. From Virginia via Utah- Eddie From OhioOn Saturday, Steve’s takes advantage of Utah. Due to a tour schedule change, Eddie From Ohio is coming to Steve’s instead of someplace in Utah, which represents good luck for the valley because this four-piece group usually doesn’t play venues of Steve’s size. The band is not from Ohio but instead Harrisonburg, Va., and started playing in northern Virginia in 1991. The band’s songs have won four WAMMIES (Washington D.C.-area local music awards) and have achieved considerable local success.Eddie From Ohio is an American folk band with two acoustic guitars, hand percussion, and all four sing like angels. The band’s ninth CD, “This is Me,” is a delight, and these guys will be so much fun to hear.Eddie From Ohio is an American folk band with two acoustic guitars, hand percussion, and all four sing like angels.
