Don Conoscenti pleases capacity crowd at Chalice Abbey on 2/21

Kristy Fuller

Chalice Abbey in Amarillo was THE place place to be last Saturday night! It was the first time HPPR has utilized this beautiful venue-many thanks to Paul Carruth for allowing us to use it! The current art exhibit features the work of Jim Livingston, who donated a great print that we gave away to an audience member.

Now let's talk about Don. He has been captivating audiences everywhere he goes for over 30 years. His songs and, in particular his playing, are so expressive and emotional that the listener is immediately drawn in. This show was made up of some of his most well-known tunes and several new ones that will be on the new record he is currently recording. Couple that with his stories about each song,  and you get a great listening experience.  

Great venue, fantastic art, wonderful music- a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thanks to all who attended and helped to make it so.

Mike Fuller remains our station's favorite prodigal son. Former Music Director of High Plains Public Radio, and host of High Plains Morning (2010-2015), he has returned to HPPR with a new show called What The Folk?—a signature mix of folk, roots, Americana, and more—woven together by a unifying theme. Tune in every Saturday night at 7pm CT for a two-hour mix that could only come from the man himself.
