Great stuff happening! Buck Stone and I (of the bluegrass band the Bucktones) and who also perform as the duo of Murray and Stone, will be part of an Everly Brothers Tribute show at the Barns of Wolf Trap on October 11, 2014. It's one of the tribute shows put on by Ron Newmyer. We played the first one at Gypsy Sally's in June. Meanwhile, the Bucktones continue to gig around town and will be at the Smokin Hot Bar and Grille on July 25th,and the Takoma Park Folk Festival on Sept 7th, 2014. I'm also recordings songs in the studio with my other bandmate, Michelle Lockey (our band is called Michelle Michelle) and we recently finished recording our latest song, Easy to Love, soon. We've also got some gigs coming up, including the Potomac Grill on Oct. 25. Finally I look forward to performing at another Songwriters Showcase at Outta the Way Cafe on August 7th.
Lot's happening this winter! Buck Stone and the Bucktones, the bluegrass/country group I'm in was just nominated for a Wammie (Washington Area Music Association) award for best country group. Very exciting news! We'll be playing at Smokin' Hot Bar and Grille in Glenwood MD this Saturday, Feb. 8 from 9pm till midnight. Then on February 15th I'll be a musical guest, along with Greg Dillon and Dalton Potter, at Craig Cumming's show at Quench Restaurant on Feb. 15th. Finally on Feb. 22, Michelle Michelle (the duo of Michelle Lockey and Michelle Murray) will be playing at the Kozi Cafe from 7-9pm.
So much has been happening in the last year..I joined a bluegrass band, Buck Stone and the Bucktones, just teamed up with fellow songwriter Michelle Lockey to form a duo called Michelle Michelle, and just got back from a Taxi Songwriters Road Rally and I'm now inspired to make some new recordings, write some new songs and start pitching them!
Michelle and I plan to start recording some songs together soon. Plus we are having our debut show, plus Michelle Lockey's CD Release party on Saturday, December 14th at Dickey's BBQ in Germantown MD. Should be a great night!
