Carol Guild: Tripping the light and Taj is coming!

They were tripping the light fantastic at the blues dance party with Shana Morrison and Volker Strifler Saturday night.

You know, sometimes these shows are good and sometimes they are good! These performers were dynamic in such an effortless way. Kudos to Paul Emery and all who brought these fine acts to The Center.

Also on Saturday night, I popped over to see Justin Ancheta, Isaac James, Ivan and Tree rock Old Town Auburn’s California Club. Did Auburn know how good they had it?

Come Sunday, I was rockin’ the pumpkin patch at The Union’s Fall Home & Harvest Festival. This is really a fabulous show and I hope to see you all next year at the spring show. (I’ll probably be rockin’ the “paint a pot” next time. Yeah. I know how to party!)

It was the last weekend for the Nevada County Open Studios Art Tour until next year, but a lot of these artists keep their doors open year-round, and they have their works in galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes around town – Broad Street Bistro, The Center for the Arts, Pine Street Cafe, ASiF Studios, Artists’ Cooperative, Mowen Solinski, Flour Garden, Summer Thyme’s, Aimee Taylor Handcrafted, Apple Alley Cafe, Grey Goose in Alta Sierra, Spencer Studio, New Moon, National Hotel, just to name a few – heck, even the hospital hangs local works. Check our calendar at the back of Prospector for more.

It’s certainly never to late to browse our galleries and artist studios. Many artists are happy to chat about their work and share what inspires them, so stop and take a peek.

Once again, we have a smorgasbord of entertainment this week. And, at last, Taj Mahal and Vieux Farka Toure will be at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium on Sunday! (

I’ll be there. Hope to see you, too!
