Misisipi Mike Wolf hosts a cavalcade of stars for a romp through the songbook of Shel Silverstein!
Shel Silverstein — yes, the one famous for Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, The Giving Tree — wrote hit songs for Johnny Cash, Dr Hook and The Medicine Show, Marianne Faithful, Bobby Bare and Willie Nelson, among others. In fact, he helped put together the band Dr Hook and the Medicine Show as a vehicle for his songs.
San Francisco’s premier country music singer/songwriter and bandleader Misisipi Mike Wolf, invites Rik Elswit (guitarist for Dr Hook and friend of Silverstein), Gayle Lynn, The Shut-Ins and Maurice Tani to join him at Bird & Beckett to sing some of their favorite Shel songs and a few originals, too.
Don’t miss out on Bird & Beckett’s burgeoning Sunday night series. We’re calling the series Canyon Moonlight and it features bands sharing drummer Randy Odell on the first Sunday of the month (Eric & the In Crowd, EaR Candy, GG Amos Trio), The Seducers on the second, Jinx Jones Trio on the third and Misisipi Mike’s rockin’ review on the last. When there are five Sundays, like this month, we squeeze in a guest act on the fourth Sunday– in this case, HowellDevine on January 24th.l 7:30-10 pm every Sunday. $10 suggested donation to help us pay the musicians.
Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
