8/20/2012 9:03:00 AM Alan James 'Farewell Sedona'
concert Friday at Well Red Coyote
Renowned Verde Valley musician Alan James, is leaving the area for a new musical adventure. But before he leaves, he will perform a special farewell concert for his many fans Friday, Aug. 24, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at The Well Red Coyote in West Sedona.
James is one of the area's most talented and hardest working musicians, as both a solo act and with his band. He is a guitar virtuoso, comfortable and expert in many styles and genres of music.
He is also the consummate entertainer, always giving his audiences a great time, not only with his songs and music but also with his stories in between. Folks are still talking about his incredible performance of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" at the Bob Dylan Birthday Party & Concert this past May.
Opening for James will be the Verde Valley's favorite fingerpicker, Dan Engler, a staple at many of the area's open mic sessions and a prolific songwriter in his own right.
Starting in October, Alan will begin a six month tour in Mexico, kicking it off in style in the Mexican Riviera.
He will feature songs from his last four albums and some new one's mixed in that haven't been recorded yet.
"I really enjoyed my stay here in Sedona and I'm sure I'll pop in from time to time to see old friends and strum a few new tunes for you."
"Come on out for one of the best 90 minutes of music you'll ever hear - this just might be the last opportunity to hear Alan James live for a long time," said Well Red Coyote owner Joe Neri.
The concert is free and open to the public.
The Well Red Coyote is located at 3190 W. Highway 89A, at the corner of 89A and Dry Creek Road.
