This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to my Songwriter’s Notes, Lyrics, and Music.
On Thursday, 8/21, Steve Piper will be our performer in the “Side room” at Buffalo Bill’s. Steve, who accompanied Jed Curran with some great licks from his guitar in last month’s show, will be doing a solo show of his original music. Here is what Pat Maloney, an awesome songwriter, has to say about Steve’s music. “Steve Piper's songs are filled with the kind of longing you get when you are alone, but warm and dry on a rainy night - little circles of light in a dark and stormy world. I hear flashes of Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers peering in from the darkness. I am nostalgic for Steve's past and want to join him, through his songs, as he slouches off towards Kansas City, searching for the truth.”
Here is a video of Steve doing “This House,” at his show in the “Side Room” at Buffalo Bill’s in 2012.
Here is a video of Steve doing “Never Gets Old” his show in the “Side Room” at Buffalo Bill’s in 2013.
In addition to being a great songwriter and guitar player, Steve is a terrific photographer and artist. To learn more about him, click here. Hope you can join us for the show!
The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created two CDs, one for each of our two seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.
The concert takes place on the third Thursday of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. (Starting in October, we will do two shows a month, the first and third Thursdays.) The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:

Jed Curran and Steve Piper were our guests in July. To give you a feel of the setting of these concerts, here is a video of the duo doing one of Jed’s songs, "The Rhyming and the Rhythm."
