(LATE UPDATE) Sean Hayes dance concert cancelled

Sean Hayes’s concert Saturday has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for next year.

Hayes was to return to Grass Valley for a concert at The Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3.

If there were a map of Sean Hayes’ 20-plus year career, it would be circuitous. A tangled criss-crossing of backroads and blue highways denoting place, influence, and trajectory.



You can hear it in the deep-roots syncopation, in the dusty folk-stomp and in the biorhythmic pulse that ebbs and thumps throughout his soul-tinged songs.

Born in New York and raised in North Carolina, Hayes headed for California two decades ago. It was in San Francisco that his career blossomed. But Hayes credits the Carolinas towns like Asheville and Charleston — places where he first wrote and performed tunes such as “Mary Magdalene” — with imprinting him as an artist.




His ability to be authentic in front of an audience comes, he says, “from having just enough of a theater background to realize that being yourself on stage is more interesting than any stereotyped character.” He adds, “I’ve always been interested in revealing and stripping down and being open.”

Seven albums in, he shows no sign of slowing. There’s a definite continuity over the span of his back catalog, which dates to his 1999 debut, “A Thousand Tiny Pieces.”
