July Tea Share

Hello tea lovers! It's been almost three days since our last tea meet so it's time to make a new one. This time we're doing a tea share, guest starring two competition winning high mountain Taiwanese oolongs courtesy of Trident. It's going to be off the chain! Bring anything in your collection that is interesting, traditional, unflavored eastern tea. If you don't have anything, that's fine - we always have more samples than we can share. I'm bringing the famous campfire log that White2Tea cursed me with years ago. It is an experience. Anyway, see you there!

Desiree Cannon live at the Trident

Desiree Cannon is of California blood, writing country-folk songs since she was able to get her fingers around a guitar, referencing the romanticism of frontier through her songwriting. Coming from a family of cattle ranchers in San Benito county, all long time fans of country music, she recalls fond memories of hearing bits and pieces of the whole labyrinth of the country music catalog. Her songwriting is informed by her cowboy grandfather’s sizable record collection and even larger collection of western novels, inspiring her original music. She found her own favorites in the towering legacy of voices that came through Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams and Karen Dalton. Now strongly rooted in the Bay Area, she has started her own music showcase named Run with the Moon, a free show that features three separate acts each month, showcasing roots music from all over world. She has also begun to work with the record label The Long Road Society for her debut album in 2018. Ready for the tides and the changes that keep California so enticing she is looking to the horizon for whatever it may have in store for her.

J. Boor Live at the Trident

Jerm Boor is a solo acoustic musician. He writes original songs and plays fingerstyle guitar (per one reviewer) “like a laser cuttlefish.” That means that he plays really, really well. His original material is supplemented (rarely) with obscure songs which he steals from his equally obscure friends. His voice is a seasoned baritone. He sometimes switches to mandolin unexpectedly.

Don Koplen Reading

A Southern story is never a straight line to the end point. Ask a southerner about an event or how to get to a place and you’ll hear about everyone and everything and everywhere along the way. It lurches forward, then backtracks, goes off center, infuriates and, eventually, rediscovers its luscious, rich, often humorous and just as often, perverse, path. It’s made of, like the South itself, a soup pot of characters—redneck, slave roots, sex, blood, love, hate, war, religion, intrigue and wink of the eye—all chopped, diced and thrown into its cauldron. Often as not, it boils into a mess. But somehow, sometimes, if you enjoy a mélange of tastes, it blends into a delicious, or at least colorful, potage. So settle in, relax and enjoy this saga about a small-town southern Jewish boy and the characters who helped him grow up, learn about sex versus love, black and white, true religion, soul music and jazz, all while attempting to keep the love of his life, the Klan minister’s daughter, and to free an innocent black man, his carpenter hero.
