Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo a day early in the most unusual and beautiful home in the Oaks of Santa Paula, as we bring the spirit of the late great Concerts at The Mill with the return to Santa Paula of TOM RUSSELL, outsider Troubadour extraordinaire.
Tom Russell is a master storyteller and Mesabi, his new release for Shout! Factory, corrals some of the acclaimed singer-songwriter's most compelling tales to date. A thread runs through its songs, a zigzagging but determinedly solid line that connects the perilous bordertown of Juarez, Mexico to the real and faux glitz of L.A. and the bleak iron range of Minnesotathe Mesabi of the album's title. The broad landscapes created by Tom Russell for Mesabi are inhabited by characters we all knowBob Dylan, James Dean and Elizabeth Taylorand some we may not: the now-obscure, once well-known singer Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards, the tragic Disney child star Bobby Driscoll and the character actor Sterling Hayden. It's a logical progression from Russell's last album, 2009's Blood and Candle Smoke, yet it's like no other album Russell has made in his nearly four decades as a recording artist.
Tom will be performing with guitar virtuoso Thad Beckman, with "some of the smartest finger-picking you could wish for."
