Event Description

DAN BERN (8:15-9:30) has released 18 albums since 1997 and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms. The LA-based songwriter is perhaps best known for his film writing. He composed scores of songs for Judd Apatow's Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek, Jake Kasdan's Zero Effect, and other films. Bern wrote Swing Set, a duet with Emmylou Harris, for the off-Broadway production of Family Week (directed by Jonathan Demme) and wrote the title song for Demme's documentary Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains. He has also written with Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Himmelman, and many others. A former NM resident, Bern's album BREATHE won Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter at the Sixth Annual Independent Music Awards. His latest disc is the excellent Songs Of Fall.

AWNA TEIXEIRA (7:00-8:00), best known for her work with Po' Girl, has just released a solo EP and is hitting the road with multi-instrumentalist Jay Speed for a rhythmic mix of contemporary sounds and accordion-driven, old-world folk. After cutting her teeth in various Canadian outfits, Teixeira hooked up with Po' Girl, one of Vancouver's most promising roots bands. They began touring internationally, with Teixeira initially on electric and gutbucket bass, then stretching out on guitar, banjo, ukulele, keys, accordion, glockenspiel, harmonica and percussion, in addition to songwriting, arranging and producing. After a decade and five albums with Po' Girl, which is on break but still a going concern, Teixeira has been stretching herself musically, touring in support of two solo releases, which boast a mixture of all her musical influences and varied instruments.
