Adler & Hearne: HOME
Welcome to the online home of Adler & Hearne, and Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm! (updated 8-26-15)
Adler & Hearne performances coming up...
We've got some fine shows coming up in our own 'back yard' of Texas!!! As official Texas Touring Artists of the Texas Commission on the Arts, we're happy to say our itinerary is keeping us touring closer to home for a change, which we really love. We're also enjoying some much-needed 'down time.' (We even planted tomatoes this summer!) Check our Calendar page for the latest details on upcoming A&H concerts for listening audiences.
WHAT'S LEFT OF THIS MONTH'S August Sundays at Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards, PITTSBURG, TX...
What could be more fun than meeting up at an Italian-oasis-like vineyard far off the beaten path deep in the East Texas piney woods with a circle of treasured family and friends?!
Please join us -- this Sunday (Aug. 30) -- our final date at the vineyard, for awhile anyway. The vineyard is open from noon to six, and we'll be there playing from 2 to 5 p.m. serving up our organic originals of the Texas Folk variety, layered with jazz and blues. We even do a number of jazz standards and sometimes feature a special musical guest!!! Special guest saxophonist JR Whitby, imported from McKinney, TX, will be sitting in with us on our sets that day. Whoo!
No reservations required and NO COVER. For more information, visit the folks at Los Pinos online at http://lospinosranchvineyards.com/ (903) 855-1769 for assistance with your special plans.
Plus, this SUNDAY MORNING -- Sunday, August 30 we look forward to being part of a special service at 8:45 a.m. at Tennison Memorial UMC in Mount Pleasant, TX -- followed by a yummy brunch!
And yes, between brunch and then dinner later on at Los Pinos, they will have to roll us out the door at the end of the day.
BIG NEWS!!! We'll be headlining at Winnsboro Center for the Arts on The Bowery Stage on Saturday, September 12!!!
Please make plans to join us at this hallowed hall in our historic and charming home town. And we're delighted to be sharing the stage this evening with Special Guest KURT BITTNER! Tickets available online NOW! http://winnsborocenterforthearts.com/sept_12_adler__hearne
We also have lovely tour planned to the upper Midwest for a nice string of concert performances later in September into early October. Check our Calendar page for details, and it's a good idea to re-check our Calendar page just prior to any concert for last-minute updates to information.
As much as we love touring on the road, we've equally loved working more close to home sweet Winnsboro this summer -- ahhhh. We continue to develop new touring opportunities as well as returning to familiar stages and house concerts -- only in mostly shorter stints in our own backyard (TEXAS) as well as surrounding states of our region (AR, OK, MO, etc.). This summer we've been making time for new writing, and musical project planning -- mixed with some teaching too, which we love. We're especially enjoying making new friends in Home Sweet Texas as we proudly wear the badge of official Texas Touring Artists for the Texas Commission on the Arts through September of 2016.
Looking to the fall touring season ~ We've got several mini-tours taking us into wonderful corners of Texas, as well as the upper Midwest, and even a dash up to the great Northwest! But still, we welcome the opportunity to schedule a house concert and/or church musicmaking opportunity anywhere near the Northeast Texas Region, including neighboring states. Please write to us directly if these ideas call your name: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check our new 'Sunday Mornings' page for more details on how these two organic song farmers plant songs in hearts on Sunday mornings, church coffeehouses on Saturday nights, dinners on the ground, etc!!!
Looking Back ~ This past Sept. 28 of 2014, we wrapped up a 102-day concert tour that covered 13,000-plus miles, and included 75+ performances from New Mexico up to Montana, across the upper Midwest and into New England, then home via the Southeast and South. Hats off to all of you who hosted us in your homes, who showed up at a show, and to all dear friends old and new we crossed paths with along the way. It was a soulful and sweet journey indeed. Here's to more musical memory making in 2015-2016.
Please check our calendar page for details, and to see when and where we'll be in the coming days. We'd love to see you there. Always.
ABOVE IS THE COVER ART OF OUR LATEST CD "SECOND NATURE," PRODUCED BY LLOYD MAINES. It was officially released September 1, 2014 (Labor Day), and made the FOLK DJ Top 10 its first month on the charts. This makes us smile. : )
The music was recorded, mixed and mastered by Pat Manske at The Zone Recording Studio in Drippings Springs, TX. Hats off to the following dear co-writers on some of the songs: Hal Greenwood, Lisa Aschmann and Kate Hearne. Special kudos to the amazing musical parts played by very special guest musicians all: Glenn Fukunaga, Chris Gage, Kate Hearne, Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines, Pat Manske and Steve Smith. And finally -- heartfelt thanks to all dear friends, family and fans around the world for coming out to our shows, for supporting our fabulously successful Kickstarter campaign, and for reaching out to your favorite FOLK and AMERICANA radio DJs to request songs from ADLER & HEARNE'S "SECOND NATURE!"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ADLER & HEARNE ACCEPTED FOR NEW TEXAS COMMISSION ON THE ARTS TEXAS TOURING ROSTER
Austin, TX – June 4, 2014 - Adler & Hearne is pleased to announce they have been approved for inclusion on the new Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) Texas Touring Roster. The Texas Touring Roster features some of the state’s best artistic talent and is designed to ensure that all Texans may enjoy events and performances by these artists in their local communities. Adler & Hearne is one of 150 artists and arts companies selected for inclusion on the roster.
“Artists on the Texas Touring Roster travel to communities across the state and perform in a variety of venues,” said TCA executive director Gary Gibbs. “In addition to performances, they may also conduct workshops, master classes, residencies, lecture-demonstrations or arts education components as a way to engage community residents. We are proud to offer the citizens of Texas access to such high-quality artistic talent.”
Artists on the roster must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. The Texas Commission on the Arts does not provide direct funds to the artists on the Texas Touring Roster. Instead, TCA provides grants to arts presenters, schools, libraries, theaters, and other nonprofits and government units throughout Texas to help with the cost of bringing in companies and artists from the roster. Presenters may apply through TCA’s Arts Respond Performance Support grant category for a portion of the artistic fees for artists from the Texas Touring Roster.
Acceptance onto the Texas Touring Roster benefits groups like Adler & Hearne by giving them a powerful marketing tool. Access to grant funds combined with the fact that Texas Touring Roster artists have been deemed the best in their field by a panel of statewide experts makes these artists attractive to a variety of presenters, including schools, festivals, theaters and other venues.
Artists on the Texas Touring Roster range from individual performing and visual artists to large performing arts companies. They represent artistic disciplines including music, visual art, dance, theater, storytelling, literary art and folk art. Options are diverse and range from ballet to bluegrass, animation to poetry, jazz to children’s theater, and everything in between.
More information on Adler & Hearne is available at www.adlerandhearne.com. The complete Texas Touring Roster, as well as information on the Arts Respond Performance Support grant category, is available online at www.arts.texas.gov.
About the Texas Commission on the Arts. The mission of the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is to advance our state economically and culturally by investing in a creative Texas. TCA supports a diverse and innovative arts community in Texas, throughout the nation, and internationally, by providing resources to enhance economic development, arts education, cultural tourism and artist sustainability initiatives.
