House Concert
Host: Kiki's House of Righteous Music

Curtis McMurtry

Curtis McMurtry's second record The Hornet's Nest releases at the end of the month and I can't wait.  I wasn't sure what to expect when James McMurtry's kid showed up to play a show here a couple years back, but he won everyone over with awkwardly endearing charm and seriously killer songwriting.  I can't believe it took two years for him to come back.

Mustard's Retreat

David Tamulevich and Michael Hough’s engaging stage presence, myriad of subject matter, and the sheer joy that they take in playing has made Mustard’s Retreat one of the most revered bands in folk music today. “Mustard’s Retreat represents everything that is best about folk music. Their music is community music. It comes from our common roots and traditions, pays tribute to those roots and traditions and expands on them. It is music that speaks to peoples hearts and lives and binds them together as an audience.

This is a pet-free and smoke-free home. Guest are invited to bring a beverage or snack to share but that is not required.

The Ritt Deitz Trio

The Ritt Deitz Trio is one of Madison's best local folk/Americana groups with a host of fine CDs to their credit. Ritt's songs are earthy, bluesy, funny and heart-warming. His son Wilder is a rising star keyboard player who has his own tight jazz band. Dave Foss is a marvelous hammered dulcimer player and banjo picker. Together they make great toe-tapping music.

Tommy Keene & Ivan Julian

This will be Tommy's fourth visit to the house, so I don't need to tell you who he is, but this will be Ivan Julian's first time.  Julian was a founding member of Richard Hell & the Vovoids, the Outsets (which Tommy auditioned for) and the Lovelies.  He's also played with the Clash, the Isley Brothers and Matthew Sweet.  The most remarkable part is that he is back on the road after beating the stage III gastrointestinal cancer he was diagnosed with a year and a half ago. Keene and Julian will each play a solo set and then play a few songs together at the end of the show.

Kinky Friedman

Kinky Friedman is a singer, a songwriter, a novelist, a humorist, and a politician.  He toured with Bob Dylan on the Rolling Thunder Review tour.  He taped a segment of Austin City Limits that never aired (the producer claims it was a great show, just too offensive).  He ran for governor of Texas in 2006 (which earned him a 60 Minutes segment, which did air).  He was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live in 1975.  And in May his Resurrection tour stops at the House of Righteous Music.  I still can't believe it.

Bill Camplin and Randy Sabien

Bill and Randy played at Our House a few years ago and they put on a fantastic show. They're back on tour this summer, and we jumped at the chance to get them back. Randy is one of the best violin and mandolin players in the Midwest, bar none. He's a bluesy, jazzy player reminiscent of the great Stephanne Grappelli. You might know Camplin as the owner of the much-loved Cafe Carp in Ft. Atkninson. But he's also an outstanding songwriter and guitar picker. The two together will make some musical magic. Don't miss out on hearing this dynamite duo.
