Bill Carter has been a pillar of the Austin music scene for nearly three decades, helping shape the city’s rich musical history along with his songwriting partner and wife, Ruth Ellsworth. Over 200 artists have found gold in the songwriting genius of this Texas troubadour, including Stevie Ray Vaughan (“Crossfire”), The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Robert Palmer,The Counting Crows, Storyville, Omar and The Howlers, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Ruth Brown, John Anderson, and Waylon Jennings.

American Songwriter Magazine included “Anything Made of Paper” from Bill’s first solo release in 2013, “Unknown,” in their Top 50 Songs of 2013. They wrote, “‘Anything made of paper’ was what visitors were allowed to bring Damien Echols in prison, yet Carter’s song – which played over the closing credits of ‘West of Memphis’ – focuses on everything else the falsely accused prisoner received in time: life, freedom, love, and dignity.”

The award-winning music video for the song, which tells the story through paper-cut animation, continues to screen at film festivals from Los Angeles to Knoxville.

Bill and Ruth received the BMI “Million Airs” Award for over 2 million airplays of their Stevie Ray Vaughan mega hit “Crossfire.” In March of 2000, the track won the “Decade Award for Best Song” at the Austin Music Awards.

If you happened to catch these guys at the Beer Garden on Saturday night of the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival, you saw some pretty awesome funk goin’ on.  These guys laid it down and did not disappoint.

Based out of the industrial heart of Los Angeles, Moonroof is a four-piece group that was built on a foundation of rock and roll, blues, and soul. Moonroof seeks to take roots music and turn it into layers of canopy with three part vocal harmony, Allman Brothers guitar duals, smart songwriting, and collaborative influence from all members of the group; it’s a true earth to ear jambalaya of swampy funk, jazz fusion, classic rock, and blue eyed soul. Their debut self-titled album recorded at The Pie Studios in Pasedena, CA will be released in June 2014.  And remember, your not having a psychedelic flashback, and your not still living in the sixties, but it will sure sound like you are.

Come check out Islander Jake Brougham and his band mates for a special night of Funk – it’s another free cover show and all-ages ’til 11pm, 21+ after that.

Burley Mountain has been playing their own form of country/rock in the Seattle area for several years. Fronted by Brandon Russell, who also plays rhythm guitar and writes most of the songs, it’s easy to hear their influences, ranging from classic country to southern rock, to the Grateful Dead. Andrew Stauffer has been playing bass and adding vocal harmonies since the beginning, but things really began to take off when Marty Ofsowitz joined on lead guitar. With the addition of Scott Jantzen on drums in 2011 the quartet was fully formed.

Look for their upcoming feature-length album “Songs From the Night Before,” available in late 2014, and in the meantime don’t miss the opportunity to catch one of their high-powered live performances.

Opening up for Burley Mountain is Allison Shirk.

Allison Shirk is an all-original country-rock singer songwriter. Her music tells stories of a small town girl with an honest quality that shines through her voice and guitar. Born in Corpus Christi Texas, Allison has a quality that draws you in. She’s a sweetly southern artist with an edge. Smart, beautiful and talented, she is a breath of fresh air. Allison is currently fundraising to record her debut album, Break My Heart, with a kickstarter campaign that launched on July 16th.

This is an all-ages show ’til 11pm, 21+ after that…and yet another FREE cover show.

Hits of the 60′s – Get Your Groove On

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3rd, 8pm
THE RED BICYCLE BISTRO & SUSHI
A SPECIAL VASHON EVENTS PERFORMANCE
HITS OF THE 60′S
ALL-AGES ‘TIL 11PM, 21+ AFTER THAT
$8 COVER  hits of 60's

Take a journey with us, back to the 60′s – a decade of some of the best music ever. On Friday, August 29th at The Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi, join us for a Vashon Events special production. Local musicians will be showcasing their talent, performing songs of the 60′s…whatever they choose from that magical time.

Vashon Events’ third showcase this year features local Vashon musicians taking on some of the coolest music ever. The concept for playing the music of the 60′s gives us a chance to take the audience on a musical journey. These songs are extremely nostalgic for most people. And when our favorite local musicians bring them back to life live, it can be very emotional. Musicians either play the tune as close to the original as possible, or interpret the song in their own unique style. Either way, it’s one of those concerts where audiences stop talking and lean into the music, anticipating the next note. For musicians, it can be very fulfilling when an audience listens to the music in this way.

Proceeds from the event will support Vashon Events – Vashon Island’s community arts, culture, and charity events website that launched this year. This will include the cost of the sound engineer, John Sparks, who works hard to make the show run smoothly. Vashon Events is also planning to use proceeds to create a new, “add to my calendar” button for each event so that subscribers can view events and immediately add them to their personal gmail or outlook calendar. There will be a raffle during intermission between the albums to give away wine from Vine to Vashon Wine and gift certificates for the Vashon Roasterie.
