Special edition: We're Already Against the Next War. Jan 8 2020

For the baffled? At the bottom, you have the link to find the upcoming events in the arts and music world.

For the rest of us? Given the news of the last few days, there is no reasonable expectation that any of us can blissfully proceed through our own pollyannaesque existences, wearing our rose-colored glasses, sitting on our tuffets while eating our curds and whey.

Accordingly, here's an opportunity for you to get engaged, encouraged, energized, invigorated, and cognizant that each and every one of us can choose to make a difference. Call it social responsibility. Call it the price of living in a free society that has a disturbing habit of messing with the freedom of other people's societies. Call it actualizing your ethics for peace and human dignity. And call it yet another wholly necessary step in saving the planet for all of us.

 Wed, Jan 8; GROUP CALL:
5 pm (Pacific) - "NO WAR WITH IRAN DAY" emergency group call with United States Senators BERNIE SANDERS and ELIZABETH WARREN, and Members of Congress RO KHANNA and BARBARA LEE, and leading experts on Ametica's foreign policy, in an emergency call to stop Trump's war with Iran.
*  RSVP HERE to get the number for the call, which takes place TONIGHT.
*  Breaking news may bring word of escalation between the U.S. and Iran; no one can be sure what will happen next.
*  But we can push for diplomacy and de-escalation and not let a Trumpertantrum or fanatacism in the name of religion -- or imperialistic foreign policy on the part of anybody -- provoke a devastating war.
*  Yes, competing Presidential Candidates Sen. Sanders and Sen. Warren have BOTH signed-on as guest speakers in this group call.
*  This call will also prepare anyone who wishes to take part tomorrow, Thursday, January 9, in nationwide "anti-war, pro-diplomacy majority" demonstrations of Americans making themselves visible in actions across the country. Thursday already has OVER 200 EVENTS with more being added every hour for "NO WAR WITH IRAN DAY."

*  We're out of time for delusions of righteous dominance. Assassinations don't make us safer. America's permanently pugilistic, and now Trump’s unhinged, foreign policy has needlessly endangered the lives of U.S. troops and Iraqi, Iranian, and countless other civilians. This is the crucial moment to declare, "We will not be led into another illegal war."
*  While climate change deniers continue to pillage the planet, the warconomy's merchants of death accelerate destruction and suck-up the resources needed to save the only home we've got. Finally, people in the US and around the globe are tired of war, and want to work together because we're all in this together.
*  American military families have endured multiple deployments and multiple generations in the same conflicts, and to what end?
*  Iranian, Iraqi and Afghani families in the United States worry for their loved ones back home and for their safety here, amidst rampant xenophobia.

*  If we’ve learned our lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen and global endless war, we cannot be led into another costly, unnecessary war of choice. And we cannot allow our neighbors to be targeted by law enforcement. We cannot allow ourselves to be divided by a glory-hungry lout.
RSVP NOW to get the number for the call, at:

For the music and arts events reported by the Guide on Wed, Jan 8, go here:


We have lots of MUSIC NEWS
features in the works, and they'll
be along as we get them dressed,
shoes tied, cowlicks combed down,
bowties cranked straight, 
and strings tuned.

Find a comfortable spot by the 
wood stove, play a round or two 
of checkers, and we'll be along...

On to the necessary boilerplate...

Boilerplate? What "boilerplate"? Where's the main pressure gauge? And the firebox?

Who came up with that goofy term for the basic essential informational stuff...

Alright already, it's right down there...

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS – and views of interest to artists everywhere – more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers -- and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The cyber porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.

We'll be back again soon with music news and more "News of the Non-Trumpcentric Universe." (c)

Til we catch ya again on the flip side 
in this new decade...
as Buford the Wonder Dog looks on 
and in our best Kathy Baker
"Hee Haw" voice: "THAT's all!"
Stay tuneful!
