Rare is the Bald Hill set that doesn’t include a Gillian Welch tune, and so, while alerting our huge following to Friday’s show at Guthrie’s, we also wanted to be sure and direct you to this great profile of Welch at newyorker.com. We didn’t know she was from L.A. (the other one), for example — a fact that didn’t exactly endear her to cred evaluators in the Americana and bluegrass scenes. They were probably just pissed she did what she does, what they’d like to do, so very well despite having grown up in Lotus Land AND attended Boston’s oh-so-boho Berklee School of Music. In any case, check it out.
Meantime, after a summer hiatus, Bald Hill will indeed return to the She Doesn’t Like Guthrie’s Café and Restaurant (www.guthriesplace.com) this Friday, Sept. 23, in the beating heart of downtown Lewiston. Doors open earlier (check out the Burrito du Jour, or maybe the Dust Bowl Soup) but the show itself will run from 8-10 p.m. Come on down!
