Point Richmond Acoustic presents this Friday, Nov. 8 *—
with special guest Anny Celsi
UPDATE: This Friday's show is a go! Though Tish canceled most of her California dates due to a health situation, she is back on tour, starting with our show this Friday night - her only Bay Area appearance!
This Friday, we present internationally acclaimed recording artist Tish Hinojosa, accompanied by long-time collaborator Marvin Dykis, and with special guest Anny Celsi opening the show. Show starts at 8:00, doors open at 7:30 and tickets are $18 at the door, $15 for seniors and students.
Tish moves with equal grace through folk, country, pop and Latino styles. The Texas singer-songwriter, youngest of 13 children of Mexican immigrants, sings in both English and Spanish, combining and embracing these varied styles with characteristic warmth and a pure, soulful voice.
Tish is the real deal! She has released 15 albums, each distilling diverse influences and life experiences. They include the award-winning Culture Swing, Mexican love ballads and border songs in Spanish on Frontejas, her bilingual children¹s record Cada Niño/Every Child, and Sign Of Truth which reveals a more personal, intimate, yet independent side influenced by divorce and other life transitions.
Tish has contributed her talent to causes such as bilingual education, immigration and farmworkers' rights. She has performed at the White House for Bill and Hillary Clinton. She has recorded and worked with Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, Nanci Griffith, Pete Seeger, Flaco Jimenez and Los Lobos. Linda Ronstadt, one of Tish¹s early influences later recorded her own version of Tish’s song “Donde voy.” For more info: www.mundotish.com/ or any of the dozens of classic videos on YouTube.
Anny Celsi open the show. Her style has been described as “beatnik cool,” “pop-noir,” and “slightlydelic pop jangle.” Intimate and incisive, Anny’s live shows bring wit, soul and energy to the traditionally mellow singer/songwriter format and proves that girl-with-guitar has no limits. She has a strong country and folk vibe like Aimee Mann, Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega and Jackie DeShannon. She often tours with Tish, and will be accompanied Friday by Bruce Kaplan, a long time friend and collaborator. Check her out at www.annycelsi.com.
So don't miss this show! Point Richmond Acoustic concerts are held at the First Methodist Church, 201 Martina, in Point Richmond.
Mark your calendars - our December 13 show features Teresa Tudury - one of our favorite artists who is writes songs that are both stunningly touching and painfully funny, plus veteran Nashville singer/songwriter Claudia Nygaard!
Thanks for reading - and thanks to our friends at Point Richmond Music, our team of volunteers, and the First Methodist Church!
