Carson Appeal - Reno News and Review


From Northwest Reno Library

This morning, Colin Ross Duo performed at Northwest Reno Library to a very appreciative audience of 28 people. Colin played a variety of instruments including piano, acoustic guitar, a couple resonator guitars (one dating back to the ‘30s), recorders, and mandolin. Colin adjusted his program to the audience (even taking a request), while his keyboard accompanist, Nancy Barker, had no problem keeping up with the changes. Colin sang while he and Nancy performed several different styles of music: American folk, traditional Irish folk, Mississippi blues, jazz, swing, and pop – from an original tune (“James Beckwourth’s Lament”) to Muddy Waters (“Good Morning, Mr. Blues”) to Floyd Cramer (“Last Date”) and Ray Charles (“Blind Date” – an interpretation of “Last Date”).

The program was not only entertaining but also educational as Colin stopped to talk about music history and music theory, describing the background to his various instruments and styles of performance. Colin and Nancy are both very easy-going, nice to work with, and fun to listen to. Colin expressed his thanks for being able to perform at the local libraries. Apparently, his 10-year old daughter is quite the virtuoso violinist and might join him on next year’s roster. Thanks to the Friends of Washoe County Library, Pioneer Center Youth Programs, Beate, and everyone else involved in getting the word out there and bringing Colin Ross Duo to our community.

1. Evolution of the Blues Poster this is a High Resolution jpg of the poster with the marquee left blank for you to put your venue and dates. The Marquee is also a high res for you to use to help getting the perspective correct. I use Adobe Photoshop to do this. You can make a single layer after adding your text then copy to main image. Once there you can use the "Edit" -> "Transform" -> "Perspective"  to match the existing marquee area. Please contact Webmaster Mike if you need help, We want them to look good. The File is large zero-compression  jpg to be printed up 11 X 17 size. I suggest using a 80lb gloss stock to print these on.
