Doug Haywood & Reggie Chavez - D-Squared
Doug Haywood and Reggie Chavez and D-Squared are teaming up to share the evening, and sharing their music with us. Mark your calendar!
Doug Haywood, from a 2015 interview with Mariah Fleming: Doug Haywood is a singer-songwriter-musician who has worked with some of the most iconic musicians of the last four-plus decades. Haywood has a list of credits that is mind blowing. "I'm the most famous musician nobody's heard of!" he says. The average music listener may not have heard of Doug Haywood, but he's certainly well known to the many iconic musicians with whom he has worked. The short list includes Jackson Browne, who he's toured with (and continues to do so) for twenty years. The list includes artists like Linda Ronstadt, Graham Nash, the late Warren Zevon and many others. It's a very long list of touring and recording credits. Recently Jackson Browne and Doug Haywood reunited to record Browne's new release "Standing In the Breach." Haywood sang harmonies on the new album, which was released last October.
Doug Haywood is not a name-dropper, even though he is one of the preeminent 'sidemen' in the music industry. People who follow his music appreciate his superlative talent, humility and humor. He's co-written many songs with people like with Jack Tempchin who wrote "Peaceful, Easy Feeling." Haywood's own songs have been recorded by artists such as David Lindley, Bobbie Gentry, The Dillards, Mason Williams, Jennifer Warnes, Juice Newton and Jerry Reed. He had a top ten hit with "If it Ain't Love by Now" recorded by Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius. He (Doug) was also on SNL with Jackson when the original cast was there, and Steve Martin was host.
Haywood's got connections to Arizona music that go way back to the Mews and the Blue Goat Pub 'coffee house' days. Long time Valley residents will remember the Mews and the Blue Goat Pub as a bit of a circa late 1960's early 1970's Greenwich Village vibe in Scottsdale (and believe me, those WERE the days!) In that tradition, the Valley still has Fiddler's Dream, a 30 plus year old Phoenix gem which has hosted much great music over the years. If you've been there, you know what I mean. If you haven't, here's your chance to experience a stunner at this concert.Doug will be accompanied by Reggie Chavez, a fine guitar player and arranger. Like Doug, he's been around long enough to have played under some good, and some not-so-good circumstances. This one will be a good one.
D-Squared - Arizona harp and guitar duo, D-Squared, weaves a tonal fabric of poignant lyrics, earth-rooted melodies and stark, hypnotic rhythms. Combining guitar, mandola, banjo and a low, resonant voice with the folk harp, concertina, accordion and beguiling vocals, Charles and Gessner lead listeners through a landscape both arid and lush, sacred and desecrated, arrogant and innocent.
Attending a show is akin to joining a gathering of friends around the kitchen table. Natural storytellers with a sly wit, D-Squared enchants audiences with tales of their beloved Southwest and the rocks, plants and animals that share it.
Honed on a backcountry ranch where they met, married and developed their music, D-Squared's spacious sound reflects a life lived beneath high western skies. Their music is a like a cool drink of water after a long walk through the desert. The songs are hymns to the canyons promising rain to the willows, cowboy pagan spirituals flung at the night sky like so many stars.
Doors open at 7:15pm, and the music begins at 8pm!
