- Kulak's Woodshed Museletter for the week of 10/29 - 11/4/12
Severin Browne and Friends
with special guest Alfred Johnson
Severin Browne performs solo to packed house concerts, intimate listening
rooms, and even an occasional almost-rowdy bar crowd with friends from his
SoCal roots. He is a sought-after guest in many singer-songwriter festivals
and shows, and is regarded as one of the most accomplished performers in the
Los Angeles area. Severin's easy manner in front of an audience makes it
seem as if playing his guitar and singing his songs is effortless and
second-nature. His brilliant lyrics invite listeners into the songs while
his solid melodies carry the story from one note to the next. His delightful
and inviting delivery has charmed audiences for almost 40 years.
Alfred Johnson is a singer/songwriter and master of the keyboard. As a
prolific songwriter, Alfred has written somewhere around 900 songs and has
published at least 70 over a span of about 30 years. Early in his career he
co-wrote with Rickie Lee Jones on her Platinum Grammy Award winning premiere
album containing the hit single, "Chuck E's in Love". Alfred has been called
one of this century's most animated and original songwriters. Jazz singer,
Diane Reeves recorded and performed "Company", one of Alfred's finest
collaborations. Alfred describes his musical style as very diverse, but the
emphasis is always on the lyric. He blends Gospel with "Rhythm & Bluegrass",
Pop, Rock 'n' Soul, and even some danceables in a way that only he can
deliver them. You just have to experience him for yourself, and then you'll
understand. The only thing better than hearing his songs is seeing him
perform them live...with the lyric sheets, of course!
8:00 - 10:00pm

Every Monday Night- Singer/Songwriter Open Mic
All ages welcome so come on over at 7pm, sign up for the 1 song lottery and
at 7:15 the host will pull the names from a basket one at a time. We usually
have about 35 artists signing up so please perform a song that is 4 minutes
or less so that all the artists signing up can perform by 10pm when we end
the show. For a $20 donation you can request a DVD copy of your performance,
which will be available for pick up the next Monday night after 7pm. You are
welcome to use our acoustic guitar, baby grand piano (on loan by Bill
