Silver City Acoustic / Barbie Williamson and Charlie Alfero

Both our guests this evening have the distinction of having an original song accepted for inclusion on the compilation CD Wild Gila:  Forever Free – and being invited to perform their songs at the upcoming Gila River film festival and CD release celebration this Saturday, June 7, at the Pinos Altos Opera House in Pinos Altos, NM.  (The fundraiser will support the defense of the free-flowing Gila River by the Gila River Information Project.)

barbiewilliamson (https://gregrenfromusic NULL.files NULL.wordpress NULL.jpeg)Barbie Williamson is a singer/songwriter in the folk tradition.  “Raised in mountains of West Virginia, she has been involved with music for almost 50 years, with her primary influences being bluegrass, folk, blues, rock and roll, and a little bit of country.  Playing primarily the 12-string guitar, her melodies are enchanting; her voice, gentle; her lyrics, potent and living words that penetrate to the deepest places inside of you.”

She has two albums released and a third almost ready for release.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA (https://gregrenfromusic NULL.files NULL.wordpress NULL.jpg)Charlie Alfero is a folk musician known for his skills on the mandolin and tenor guitar.  He has played as a sideman for a number of musicians in and around southwest New Mexico and has been performing in a duo with Greg Renfro for a decade, during which they released the album, Settle on In.  He has appeared in two “Tucson Folk Festivals” and a handful of “Glenwoodstocks,” and he continues to perform regularly in and around Silver City.  His song “Simple Things” is on the new Wild Gila  CD.
