Did you know the legendary Kountry Korner Café in Four Corners also features live music throughout the month? Here’s a look at upcoming event dates. Lang Termes will stop in for a show on Sunday, April 23rd at 5:30pm.
Lang has been playing professionally most of his life. Lang’s vocal style ranges from mellow folk ballads to growling boogie blues. His style of songwriting — both original music and lyrics — comes deep from the heart, or in some cases, bubbles up from his whimsical sense of irony. Lang’s selection of covers ranges from early country blues to the full gambit of contemporary classics. Check out Kalyn Beasley on Sunday, April 30th at 5:30pm. The talented Wyoming-based singer/songwriter recently returned to his Northern Rockies roots from Austin to pursue a solo career. He brings an acoustic show featuring Americana and Texas country, and also shares many of his originals.
Kalyn was previously with the Bozeman-based Bad Intentions as frontman and bass guitarist. Claudia Williams of Montana Rose plays solo sets on Fridays at 5:30pm throughout the month. Upcoming dates include April 14th, 21st and 28th. Williams isn’t just a singer — she’s a sorceress, creating phrasing and emphasis for each song she writes. Her solo set will include Americana and folk music. Local pianist Bob Britten brings his talents to the Kountry Korner on Saturdays, April 15th, 22nd and 29th at 5:30pm each evening. Britten studied piano and guitar as a youth growing up in New Jersey, but it was the guitar that brought him to Montana. He studied classical guitar and attended Christopher Parkening’s master classes at Montana State University in 1981 and 1982. Bob played guitar and piano in various bands in Billings including the Gentlemen of Jazz and solo piano nightly at the Cellar 301 for several years. Rich Mayo performs every Tuesday this month at 6pm. Upcoming dates include April 18th, 25th, and May 2nd. A multi-instrumentalist, Mayo plays the guitar, harp, and vocals. He performs an Americana mix you’re sure to enjoy, and his wife, Tanna, often adds a flute and lovely female voice.
