Acoustic live music at Provecho. Come support live original music in San Miguel this Friday, June 26. Walter Ehresman, recent SMA resident after 35 years of making music in Austin, Texas, will play his iconoclastic songs, spanning a variety of instruments and musical styles, from 7-9pm (https://www.reverbnation.com/walterehresman ). Opening the show at 6pm is Emily Pickrelll, now an SMA resident via Seattle and NYC. Emily's jazzy original songs sound like new additions to the Great American Songbook (https://www.reverbnation.com/emilypickrell ). If you're looking for an alternative to cover bands, we hope to see you this Friday! ("Mustang Sally" will not be played)
Fresh from Austin, Texas, I'll be playing original material from my 35 years as a songwriter/recording artist, plus one or two eclectic cover tunes. Material ranges from singer/songwriter to reggae to ballads to rock to worldbeat to just plain hard to classify. Various string instruments will be in the mix, plus, piano to keep things interesting. I'll be playing from 6-8:30pm.
I'll be playing a solo acoustic show from 6-8pm, singing mostly my own material and playing a variety of stringed instruments. Mosey on down and take a load off, with good food out on a copacetic porch. Easy parking, too.
7:30-9:30. Will be doing an acoustic show, with the ever-dapper James Rader on percussion and background vocals. Original material about the moonbuggy-over-craters ride that is the human condition. Expect some world music elements as well.
Eclectic mix of acoustic and electric music
Sounds Like: Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Bob Dylan, Bill Nelson, Peter Gabriel
Label: Snipe Bog Records

Walter Ehresman has a show on 2015-06-26 at 18:00 @ Provecho in San Miguel De Allende, GUA http://www.reverbnation.com/q/5y07fi #concert
"Summer Calls the Shots" is a brassy and musically ambitious song…Although [it] doesn't fit into the 4 minute pop song mold, his key changes keep you entranced..., and it truly takes you on a journey…It's rock, it's eclectic, it's brash, and fun. My favorite is "Oh Anuhea," which uses a Hawaii ukulele and a fantastic sense of humor……Walter's songs would do really well in movies where the scene requires the song to carry the mood…Walter displays a mix of emotions and stories in his musical tales and makes us all think, which is refreshing...these days where we are generally asked to only tap to the beat. "Echo Down the Years" …is a real gem, ...laid back and cool. As I slid into the love story..., I imagined myself...taken into dreamland with Walter's mastery of metaphors and story telling…..Overall, [the CD] is an ambitious and musically eclectic smorgasbord of storytelling,... experimentation, solid musicianship, and a journey through time and eras.
