Secret Music Playlist, January 31, 2010

Hi -

Here's my playlist for today, January 31, 2010. This was a special show
today. My math is a little fuzzy on this, but this date approximates a milestone
for Secret Music. As of this point, I've been doing this show for half my life. I
started in June of 1987, over 22 years ago. Amazing how time flies when
you're having fun. I've got so many stories to tell from over the years.
I've met so many great people, musicians, audience and others, so I thought
it would be a fitting tribute to honor some of the great musicians I've met
over the years. Most of these people I've had live in the studio, and many
of them have played live for me over the years. The first piece by Holosphere
was recorded live on my show. What sticks out in my memory about these people
isn't so much that they're great musicians. They are, but what matters more is
what great people they were. A lot of them were just really cool people who have impacted my life in some form or another. And that's what keeps things interesting after all these years.

Here's an amusing little anecdote: Over the years, I've had many
different guest hosts and assistants. They've all had their impact on the show.
Carl Linich, Doug McCorkle, Pat Brentano, Ken Harris, Renaissance, and most
recently Shantal Riley. I'm indebted to them all for their help over the years. During the show, I mentioned this and thanked them all by name. Shortly afterwards,
I got a call from Ken. He was driving through and heard me. I hadn't heard from
him in ages. It made my day.

Secret Music Playlist, January 24, 2010

Hi -

Here's my playlist for Sunday, January 24, 2010. Thanks very much to Alexander Turnquist for coming down to play live and talk about his music. He's immensely talented. If you're a fan of the James Blackshaw style of guitar playing, you'll want to take a listen to his music. And he'll be appearing in concert along with Kelli Rudick on Saturday, January 30, at the Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY. Hope to see you there!

Alexander Turnquist live on Secret Music, 1/24/10

This Sunday, January 24, 2010, I'm very excited to welocme local guitarist Alexander Turnquist for a live interview and performance. Why I've never known about him before I'll never know. He hails from Columbia county (north of me) and plays a very dense, intricate style in the same vain of guitarists like James Blackshaw and John Fahey. He's appearing on the show in support of his upcoming performance on Saturday, January 30, along with guitarist Kelli Rudick at the Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY. Here's a link to his website for more information. I hope you all can listen in.

Secret Music Playlist, January 17, 2010

Hi -

Here's my playlist for today, 1/17/10. Lots of longer pieces today, mainly because there were several I wanted to play. The highlight was a new album by local guitarist Alexander Turnquist, who will be playing live on Saturday, January 30, along with guitarist Kelli Rudick at the Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY. Should be a great show.

One Thousand Pulses concert series

Hi -

Since Darren got a website put up, I figured I'd put up the link for any interested parties. Some real nice shows coming up, hosted by Darren in his home. Enjoy!

Upcoming shows

Hi -

Here's the first of what I hope will be many posts about concerts in the Hudson Valley area that may be of interest to Secret Music listeners. If I've missed something, or if you have a concert you'd like me to announce, just email me. Thanks!

January 30, 2010 - Three great shows, all in different venues.

Ed Gerhard - Great fingerstyle guitarist. Towne Crier Cafe, Pawling, NY.

Stone Document Trio - A progrssive/ambient/fusion trio. The inaugural concert in the One Thousand Pulses home concert series, hosted by Darren Bergstein. Woodcliff Lake, NJ. Email Darren at for more info. There'll be a website with more info soon. Look for more concerts as part of the One Thousand Pulses concert series in 2010, including Richard Lainhart, Spyra, Northern Valentine and others.

Kelli Rudick & Alex Turnquist - Two great guitar players sharing a bill. For Kelli, think Kaki King. Waifish girl plays demonic guitar. For Alex, think James Blackshaw. Intricate wall of sound guitar. And he's local to the Hudson Valley, too. Hudson Opera House, Hudson, NY.

January 31, 2010 - A nice Sunday afternoon show.

Louis Landon - Talented local pianist in a solo piano show. 3pm, Newburgh Free Library, Newburgh, NY.

February 11, 2010 - Yes, it's a Thursday night show in Manhattan, but this one is special.

Jacaszek - Polish ambient musician making his first stateside appearance. His album Treny was one of my top 25 of 2009. As part of the Wordless Music Series. Le Poisson Rouge, Manhattan.
