Hall steps into the Barnyard Acoustic Music Festival spotlight

Musician Pam Mark Hall brings her legendary voice to the historic Schmeiser barn at 8 p.m. on Monday, July 29, for an evening of contemporary folk, pop, inspirational, gospel and country music.

This is the second show in the 2013 Barnyard Acoustic Music Festival, and the first time for Hall to play the Barn’s mainstage. This concert will include a variety of pieces from her three-decade career, including contemporary Christian, country and original tunes, many of which have been recorded by others, such as Amy Grant, Debby Boone and Noel Paul Stookey. In addition to skillfully playing the guitar and singing, she is a talented piano/keyboard player. The event is co-sponsored by Barnyard Theatre and the UC Davis Friends of Acoustic Music.

Hall’s music career blossomed 36 years ago when she was fortunate enough to be surrounded by a group of artists called Discovery Art Guild. The group was led by her mentor — author, speaker and musician John Fischer. Hall currently holds monthly workshops for songs, poems, short stories and more at Mug Shots Coffeehouse in Oroville.

Her first album, “Flying” (1975), is an acoustic folk album. Following this with, “This Is Not a Dream,” has included orchestral arrangements and broader influences, including pop and rock. In “Never Fades Away” (1980), she continued to grow and experiment, expanding into jazz.

Hall produced “Good Night Sleep Tight” (1982), a lullaby album, gathered renowned fellow artists Brown Bannister, Debby Boone, John Fischer, Marty McCall, Randy Stonehill and Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary), proving how respected she had become. Stookey sings a duet with Hall on the album. The title song was written by Hall and guitarist Phil Keaggy.

She quickly followed with another brash move, stepping further into ‘80s pop-rock with the album “Supply and Demand,” recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Keith Thomas. Her next album, “Keeper,” moved even deeper into pop-rock territory. After a break, Hall returned, stronger than ever, with “Paler Shade” (1993).

The Schmeiser barn is at 35125 County Road 31, exactly 4 miles west of Lake Blvd. Tickets for the show ($15 suggested donation) can be reserved by e-mail: music@barnyardtheatre.org, or by leaving a message at 530-752-1958.

Barnyard Acoustic Music Festival will have five separate evenings of acoustic music on the dark nights of the theater run in Summer and early Fall, 2013. Each evening of music will present differing themes including roots and ragtime with Stevie Coyle (July 31), traditional Americana flatpicking with Robin Kessinger, joined by local-favorite fingerstylist, Todd Hallawell (Ganonymous, opening, Aug. 4), and wrapping up the season with a revisit by the contemporary fingerstyle great, Chris Proctor (Oct. 11).
