Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013 11B ARTS and. ENTEI:',/F 00_INMENT Duo showcases hidden talents at Words & Music The next Quincy Words & Music takes place Thursday, Nov. 7, at Patti's Thunder Caf6. Doors open at 6:45; the program begins at 7 p.m. Admission to the event is $3, but paying more is always an option. Libations, beverages and snacks will be on hand for purchase. The featured musical guests will be C.L. Quigley and Johnny Walker. Quigley, born and grown in the capital of Nevada, became a writer and musician at an early age. As a teenager, she moved to Reno, playing trumpet professionally, while studying music and literature at the University of Nevada. Preferring the natural world, Quigley moved to Plumas County. Also known as a firefighter and fire lookout, she spends summers working and living on mountain peaks. When not writing, studying or spotting smoke, she plays folk songs on guitar and hikes the backcountry with her dog. She reads her poems at open mic events throughout the West. The poetry of C.L. Quigley has appeared in Haggard & Halloo Publications and the Cosumnes River Journal. Walker has found joy and comfort playing his harmonica in range of musical styles. He participates in a wide range of local events, from playing the national anthem before sporting events or car races to performing at cowboy poetry gatherings. And it just doesn't seem like Christmas until he plays "Silent Night." Walker has become one of the musicians most invited to sit in with groups and artists, and he also tours with renowned cowboy poet Jim King. Walker was asked to provide musical accompaniment for the independently produced film "Dam California," giving him his first on-screen musical credits. Walker is most well-known for his harmonica playing and Quigley for her poetry. But both are also songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. They plan to showcase a wider variety of their talents during the Words & Music program. The presentation will alternate between their individual works, and they will also perform some words and music together that they have prepared for this show. Plumas Arts has been presenting Words & Music at the Thunder Caf6 since 1989. It has become a local tradition that gives musicians and spoken-word artists a change to try out their work on a very receptive audience. An open mic section follows the featured performance. Anyone interested in being part of open mic is encouraged to sign up early in the evening, as time may be limited. Find out more about Plumas Arts and its programs at C.L. Quigley, known primarily for her poetry, and Johnny Walker, known primarily for his harmonica playing, plan to unveil additional talents at Words & Music in Quincy tomorrow.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., showtime is 7. Those who have followed Foster's eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Those who have not are in for "the most wonderful surprise" when she takes the Town Hall Theatre, says Plumas Arts Director Roxanne Valladao. "We have been told that the walls are gonna wiggle." Foster's astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride. She came from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas, followed by a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in New York City with a major-label development deal that went sour. After she moved back to Texas to care for her ailing mother, Foster took a break from singing professionally for a couple of years. When sheresumed her music career in Austin, she became a regular nominee at the Austin Music Awards, winning Best Folk Artist in 2004-05 and Best Female Vocalist in 2007-08. Broadening her sound by blending blues and soul aspects into her folk roots, Foster added a Grammy nomination to her list of achievements (Best Contemporary Blues Album for her last studio release, 2009's "The Truth According to Ruthie Foster"). And, in a nod to her astounding range, she then won seemingly contradictory Blues Music Association awards for both Best Traditional and Best Contemporary Female Blues Artist in back-to-back years.

She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems "almost perfect" except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne's ex.
