Terrace Hour - Rick Chelew
In an evolution of the popular Local's Lunch Concert Series, Sunset Center is proud to present Terrace Hour. This free locals concert series features local artists selected by Sunset Center staff for a truly for locals, by locals feel. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend - no tickets or reservations required. Let's start the weekend off right... we'll see you here at our beautiful, outdoor Terrace Stage at Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea!
On Friday, September 13th, 2019 from 5:30-7PM we proudly welcome acoustic folk singer Rick Chelew for Sunset Center's fun new take on their free local's concert series.
Accompanied by his accomplished finger-style guitar-playing, singer Rick Chelew writes and sings about life as he finds it--and as it finds him. "Private Time" is a pleading cry to disconnect from phones and news and the internet. "Roll With The Punches" is part memoir, part travel-log, and part personal pep-talk. As the titles suggest, there is more travel and adventure in store, over land and sea and air, along with the inevitable reflections that traveling brings, in "Baby Took the Train to Portland," "Cars and Trains and Aeroplanes", "Easy Come Easy Go," "Sailin'", and "Drifting Away from the Shore." Whether ballads or waltzes or upbeat rockers, they all have Rick's personal stamp, and his selection of cover songs (drawn heavily from the 60s—Dylan, Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Motown) get a fresh treatment as well.
Rick is a well-known figure in the regional music scene, having spent the last couple of decades as part of legendary The Cachagua Playboys (opening for Aaron Neville, Asleep at the Wheel, Robert Earl Keen, etc.), Andrea's Fault, Heartstrings, Mother Tongue, Nico Georis, and other collaborations. He has played on stage with Peter Rowan, Laurie Lewis, and Joe Craven. He is also a successful record producer, with credits including Dave Van Ronk, Bert Jansch, Pentangle, and T Bone Burnett.
And a very special thank you to our Series Media Sponsor KRML.
