Bettman & Halpin have been touring as a duo since 2008 and can be found performing at various arts centers throughout the US as well as some of the biggest Folk and Bluegrass Festivals, Their music creates a fully acoustic and delightfully eclectic sound far greater than the sum of its parts; taking the listener from up-tempo down home fiddlin; to soulful sorrowful ballads, to super hooky folk/pop with catchy melodies and lyrics,

Stephanie Bettman is a true triple threat, An accomplished writer, singer, and fiddler; her lyrics are infused with wit and wisdom, poetry and insight, Vocally she draws comparison to the soaring soprano of Joan Baez and the plaintive emotion of Emmylou Harris, Meanwhile, her fiddling, which combines elements of bluegrass and jazz, is inspired by such masters as Stephane Grappelli and Byron Berline, A former actress and trapeze artist, Ms Bettman creates an authentic connection with her crowd no matter the size,

Luke Halpin is a renowned multi-instrumentalist A master of the guitar, mandolin fiddle and banjo, Halpin draws inspiration from the likes of Sam Bush, Mark O'Connor and Tony Rice and holds his own in comparison, A dynamic and sensitive vocalist himself, the harmony blend he and Ms Bettman achieve is at times simply transcendent Halpin has a long history in the music biz, having shared the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard Lone Star and The Steve Miller Band (to name a few), His quirky sense of humor is a perfect foil to Stephanie's dry witty presence,

Bettman & Halpin's 5 CDs have received national and international radio play along with critical acclaim; reaching the top 3 on Folk DJ radio and number I on The Roots Music Report. $20 eventbrite.com

Walking Rain Concert

WalkingRain.jpg

Walking Rain Concert: A Concert by the duo who call themselves "Walking Rain".

Walking Rain is the name the Indians of New Mexico gave to fast summer rainstorms that sweep across the desert leaving the air and ground refreshed. The music of Coale Johnson and Bob Bruen covers the open spaces between folk, country, blues and swing. A Bluegrass/New Grass veteran, Bob plays mandolin, guitar and sings with the likes of David Grisman, Vasser Clements and Mike Marshall. Coale, a graduate of Depaul Univeristy and Berkelee School of Music, plays guitar, bass, and sings. Coale performed blues and jazz since childhood and has two jazz albums under his belt, playing with renowned musicians: George Marsh, Karl Perazzo and Benny Reitveld.





Bob Bruen is a mandolinist, composer and singer. He has been playing and teaching mandolin since 1970 after hearing David Grisman on a Grateful Dead record. Since taking up the mandolin he has performed professionally in the Bay Area in his own bands and with many musicians including mandolin legends Rudy Cipolla, David Grisman and legendary fiddler Vassar Clemens.

In 1975 He was fortunate to have his first composition included on The David Grisman Rounder Album. In 2002 he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since 2004 he has recorded four CD’s under the name “Walking Rain” with his long time friend and fellow picker Coale Johnson. He currently lives and teaches in Eldorado and can be seen mucking about in local venues with a local cast of musical characters.

Coale Johnson: American singer, songwriter and guitarist, was 14 when his musical journey started… He “borrowed” his sister’s guitar and she never really got it back!

Coale started his formal studies in Chicago and then went on to Berklee School of Music in Boston. It didn’t take long to realize that academia was really no place for a free spirited guitar player! “What? You’re not going to teach me to play like Albert King or Merle Travis?”… and so began a life of playing in bands and following the music and musicians that caught his ear and captured his soul.

The music Coale now plays shows all of his influences. He covers artists from Muddy Waters to Gordon Lightfoot, from the Beatles to Merle Haggard, from Frank Sinatra to Emmy Lou Harris & Billy Holiday. Coale’s extensive original songs can best be described as folk/rock/jazz with a subtle twang.
