(REDWOOD CITY, CA) â€“ Acclaimed Americana â€˜nâ€™ Blues, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jeffrey Halford & The Healers has been called â€œthe West Coastâ€™s Answer to Bruce Springsteenâ€ for his songs about the conditions of the everyday man and woman in America. Among his most memorable: â€œCry of Hope,â€ about Americansâ€™ need to keep faith in America; and â€œLouisiana Man,â€ about the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster and our governmentâ€™s slow response to it. As validation of Halfordâ€™s writing prowess, the Bay Area-based musician just won â€œ2009 Songwriter of the Yearâ€ at the recent 5th Annual South Bay Music Awards.
Jeffrey Halford and the Healers perform along with Roy Rogers & the Delta Rhythm Kings at the Little Fox Theater, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City, Saturday, June 13, 8 p.m., $10. Info: (650) 369-4119 or log onto www.foxdream.com.
Halfordâ€™s song â€œWatching the Trainsâ€ is included as part of â€œROCKIN ROOTS Singing 12-Pack,â€ recently released by Lyon, Colorado-based Oskars Brews. The CD is included with the purchase of a 12-pack of Oskars, the only micro-brewed beer sold in cans in the U.S. His most recent CD, BROKEN CHORD, reached #8 on the national Americana charts.
