E- m m m mm m m m m m m m m m m m m mm m m al / f Sheehy to play Nords & Music Thursday, May13 Words & Music in Quincy welcomes a longtime musical friend back to one of his for- mer haunts at Morning Thun- der on Thursday, May 13. Doors open at 7 p.m. and no- host coffees, teas and liba- tions will be available. The featured artist portion with Doug Sheehy begins at 7:15 p.m. Admission is still $3. There was a decade or more some 10 years ago -- that Doug Sheehy was a staple of the Quincy music scene. Folks would often be treated to his playing solo or with his brother Dave or in a variety of local bands at The Loft (now Sweet Lorraine's). "Doug is a great guitar play- er and has a voice to do jus- tice to the James Taylor or Beatles tunes he covers in ad- dition to his original work. He is a delight to hear and an excellent personable per- former," comments Plumas Arts Director Roxanne Val- ladao. "We thought it was long overdue to see him in Quincy again." Doug Sheehy has been per- forming, teaching and playing music in northeastern Cali- fornia for more than 30 years and in a variety of environ- ments. He first played in Quincy back in his college days and then returned fre- quently with his brother Dave, playing primarily at The Loft. Lots of nationwide roadwork and performances with different configurations of musicians ensued until he settled in Susanville. He developed a "Performed History of American Music" that he presented to many Plumas and Lassen schools and began teaching music his- tory, theory and appreciation at Lassen Community College while he continued his perfor- mance adventures. Sheehy or- ganized and supervised sum- mer music camps for several years with area teenagers, ex- posing them to recording stu- dios, agents, college music fa- cilities and first-class perfor- mance venues to give them a real look at the world of music. "One of the most fulfilling experiences of my life," Shee- hy says as he reflects on his association with Scattered Blue, an all-original band that included Quincy locals Doug Sheehy will play Words & Music in Quincy this Thursday, May 13. Sheehy has performed and taught music throughout Plumas and Lassen counties for more than 30 years. Photo by Roxanne Valladao Tom Van Rossum, Roger Tew, Bill Boggio, Dave Hollister and Sheehy's brother Dave. Valladao invited Sheehy to be guest artist at Words & Music at Morning Thunder some time ago and in the process got him involved in the Lassen County Arts Coun- cil. Sheehy quickly brought Words & Music to Susanville and became a passionate and hardworking advocate of the arts in Lassen County. In fact, Sheehy is now president of the arts council. Along with his teaching du- ties, both at the college and with private students, Sheehy is performing with a host of ensembles of which the most exciting is 8 O'clock Jazz. This group has become a fa- vorite of Chester residents with thei:cooLblend or origi-: nsahd ]a]n- fiavgred ": arrangements of standards. It is anchored by a trio of hot horn players. In addition, Sheehy contin- ues to work with old buddies as The Try Tones, which fo- cuses on tight three-part har- mony and tasty acoustic gui- tar work. Every summer, Lassen County comes out in force to groove with another show by Penny Lane, the Beat- les tribute band of which he is a part. And he continues to do some solo work. When he is not performing, he is busy putting together and promot- ing another arts event. It may be San Francisco Shake- speare, some edgy music, a documentary filmmaker or whatever. In the immortal words of his father-in-law, "Man, for a guy who doesn't have a job, you sure are busy." Words & Music is also a place for musicians and writ- ers to share their talents with a very receptive crowd. Open stage (it is often called open mic, but there are no micro- phones used at the venue) will follow the featured set. Any aspiring poets, musicians, storytellers, actors or per- foraes age .encouraged to. : s'i Ulat"the loor for a five: to seven-minute time sto All music performances must be acoustic only, with no electri- cal instruments or sound equipment allowed. Original work is always encouraged. For more information, check the website, call 283-3402 or e-mail info@plumas The treasure hunt begins... Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor Those who enjoy the hunt for yard sale finds should get the truck ready for the great Indian Valley Treasure Hunt Saturday, May 15. Already, there are 37 sales featured on maps distributed by the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce, and by the week- end, even more people will probably decide to clean out their storage areas and join in. Some interesting items to find include a tandem kayak, a brand new trampoline, a ski boat, an antique trunk from Engelmine, an electric wheel- chair, an air compressor, gen- erator, tools and many other items. Musicians might be inter- ested in an antique piano and organ, which will be at the Greenville Community Unit- ed Methodist Church, where volunteers will barbecue hot dogs for snacks on the run. Just two doors down, there will be a big indoor-outdoor yard sale at the American Le- gion Hall. These two annual yard sales are known for opening a day early -- those who swing into town Friday, May 14, for the "treasure" maps might like to head on over to Pine Street in Greenville and check them out. Donations for the church yard sale may be dropped off Thursday, May 13, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., or those who need special arrangements may leave a message at 284-7316. Those who wish to donate to the American Legion may call one of three numbers to arrange for pick up: 284-7328, 284-7580 or 284-1471.
