JS/Robbie Fulks at Barbes next two Tuesdays plus 5-10-2009

by Jenny Scheinman on May 10, 2009

Hello all – here’s whats coming..

Tuesday May 12 and 26 at Barbes 7-9PM 76 9th St (corner of 6th Ave) Park Slope 718 965 9177 www.barbesbrooklyn.com
Jenny Scheinman (violin/vocals), Robbie Fulks (guitar/vocals)
I just returned from playing in the midwest with Robbie Fulks in celebration of his outrageous 50 song release entitled “50 VC Doberman” which you can download from his web site. He’s an impulsive spontaneous hilarious talker and player, can get anyone to laugh, plays his ass off, and is one of the great deep and funny country songwriters. (You may remember Fxxck This Town???) Since he moved his family to Brooklyn for the spring he’s been my #1 playdate and is coaxing my lazy fingers up into the medium tempos, hoping for some blazing bluegrass breaks to emerge sometime late July before he returns to his native Chicago. I have new songs, short hair, and a new girth.

Bill Frisell 858 Quartet tour:
5/19 Annapolis: Ram’s Head
5/20 North Hampton: Iron Horse
5/21 & 22 Boston: Regatta Bar
5/23 Piermont: Turning Point
5/24 Jacksonville, Florida
This is a string quartet (substitute Bill’s guitar for the fourth member) featuring Eyvind Kang (viola) and Hank Roberts (cello). This is one of the few projects of Bill’s that has turned into a BAND that he hopes will last forever. Its one of his best. Its a new kind of music.

Other future dates include:
5/29 Ben Allison New Haven
6/7 Todd Sickafoose 55 Bar NYC
7/17 Robbie Fulks Chicago IL Martyrs
7/18 Robbie Fulks Valparaiso IN opera house
12/3-20 Jenny Scheinman Tour, west coast including UC Davis, HSU, Fallon, NJ, and Berkeley.

– I’ll be spending most of July through November at home in Brooklyn. If I pull it off it’ll be the first time in over a decade that I’ve stayed in one place for more than 6 weeks. So if you’ve inquired about lessons and found it hard to schedule, late summer/fall will be good for that. And if you’ve always wanted to be a record producer or are just antsy to hear the next JS album you’re invited to be my benefactor! I’m half way there and by November I should have Chapters 7 and 8 written, if not recorded.

– What else? Happy Mother’s Day!
