Tuesday, Feb. 9
Willie Waldman Project plays in Keystone
The Goat Tavern hosts Willie Waldman Project on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The name might not strike an immediate chord but Willie Waldman is one you’ll find in the liner notes of great artists and groups such as Banyan, Rob Wasserman, Perry Farrell and the late Tupac Shakur. While the list goes on, there’s much more to this trumpet players credit than simply recording as a sideman on many of today’s contemporary artists albums. The show starts at 10 p.m.; $5 cover.

Their sound, often referred to as Gipsygrass, is something like a backwoods hoedown meets the smoking basement of a New York jazz club. Doors open for the free show at 9 p.m., go to barkleyballroom.com for more information.

Living Room Concert
Randall McKinnon will play Next Page Books & Nosh’s Winter Living Room Concert on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 4:30 p.m. An interesting life journey from minister and social worker to full-time musician has provided Randall with experiences which allow him to establish a powerful rapport with his audience.

Thursday, Feb. 11
