Kris Kristofferson, the Strangers & Clyde R Horn October 2018

Kris Kristofferson is on tour with the Strangers. TheKristofferson Strangers Tour 2018 is underway. Kris uses elevators  – But more about that later. What a year it’s been. Despite fires threatening property & lives, the guys have hit the road & other than a short break – they’ve stayed on it. The Girls  Respect & great love for the women that keep the bellies full & the wheels turning – Lisa, Judy & whoever else supports the machine of life on the road.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We know that you are the heartbeat that keeps life on the road – Well …. Human. It must be hard sharing your men with fans who love what they do on stage while jobs pile up around the house. We get it. We are so very grateful for every note, tune and word. We know what you do & we appreciate all of your selfless love & care. The Guys We finally managed to get a photograph of the all of the guys together. No easy task – Usually at least one is hidden behind their keys, fiddle or drums. (Thanks to the Pilgrim) Kris Kristofferson with the Strangers – Redding, Saturday 27 October The Fans Fans are AWESOME. We are also everywhere.  Clyde R Horn was out with his wife at a gig a few weeks ago.  He told us, “Kris, my wife and I shared an elevator at Thunder Valley Casino in California a number of weeks ago. A simple nod from both of us on the way down to the lobby was all that was needed. Deep respect for such a creative human.”  Respect to you and your wife, Clyde. Without ears to hear, music would be pointless. It’s people like you that inspire artists to write.  Keeping up Europe loved Scott Joss & Jeff Ingraham & Doug Colosio.  It’s been a fantastic year. The European Tour was a huge hit – Keep up with our fan pix and vids Scott Joss’ new album is out

Scott Joss – How Far to Jordan

Scott Joss –  A Stranger, A Friend We fell in love with some of the Strangers during Kris Kristofferson’s Euro tour earlier this year. Now one of the Strangers, the charming Scott Joss is treating fans to an album of his own.  Pssst.. You’ll hear Kris Kristofferson on a couple of the tracks.    How Far to Jordan Question or statement of fact – Too many of us have had too many reasons to think, whisper, mutter or scream a string of words like this.  Songwriters (the good ones) have always helped us make sense of the things that matter most in our lives. The right song at the right time puts us on the spot, or blows us away.  Love & choices are priorities for people with heart. Ok, they’re priorities for the more mature amongst us, too. The title track is Scott Joss’ first gospel song. How Far to Jordan weighs in on deeply personal issues – the sort Kris has never shied away from. It’s fitting that he chose to join Scott on this title track.  Footlights A universal song for the universal songman. It’s about everyone who takes the stage and gives all they have…night after night. People like Kris, Scott & Merle …  Footlights is a Merle Haggard song. Kris joins Scott on this track as a touching and genuine tribute to the man we know as “The Hag” – & they know as a well loved & sorely missed friend. Kris has shown his love & support for Merle many times over the years. Scott says that he, “knew (Merle Haggard) as a major guiding force in his (own) musical journey.”  Three men, one song. Two perform, one speaks through his music.  The Album Scott says he included a couple of Freddy Powers tunes because, “without his influence and love things, for me, would probably not worked out as well as they have…” The others are all Scott Joss songs. I cannot wait to hear them.    The album will be available on Spotify & other streaming sites soon. The website is almost ready & we’ll let you know when it’s live. Scott has got boxes of CDs & a little traveling rig. He hopes you’ll buy a disc & come & see him when he’s out your way.    Credit: Pictures are copyright Tina Stapelfeldt, except the album cover.
