Grammy-nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen will play with his band, Too Much Fun, and special guest Austin DeLone at 8 p.m. Thursday at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.
Tickets are $22, available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door, if available.
Kirchen is described as “one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic ‘Hot Rod Lincoln’ into the top 10, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more.”
Kirchen was named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine; he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock ‘n’ roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk.
His current CD, “Word To The Wise,” features duets with Costello, Lowe, Muldaur and Dan Hicks.
