Tom Russell 

Thursday, June 10

Singer and songwriter Tom Russell has spent a great career pretending the old West never ended. With 19 albums already to his credit, the musical Man with No Name has hit a critical high with his latest collection of songs, “Blood and Candle Smoke.” Recorded with members of Calexico, the record is a compelling travelogue, making stops in Africa, Mexico and tumbleweed environs west of the Mississippi such as San Carlos and Guadalupe. Incorporating things such as rancher folk, New Orleans-inspired jazz and mariachi trumpets, the wistful and world-weary artist is at his most personal. Russell is scheduled to perform at Ashland Coffee and Tea on Thursday, June 10, at 8 p.m. $20-$25. 798-1702.— Mike Hilleary
