Ham Jam House -Concert
Doug Gill & Lynn Langham
Doug Gill & Lynn Langham will play a fine acoustic concert on Saturday, June 4th, 2016, at 7:00 PM.
This will be an evening of music performed by two world-class songwriters.
Doug Gill is a career Nashville songwriter with a long list of credits and Lynn Langham is a longtime Texas performer who just won a Grammy for writing "Old Yellow Moon", the title cut of Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell's Album of the Year.
Doug was nominated for a Grammy for "I Just Came Here For The Music" (recorded by Don Williams and Alison Krauss) and scored the title cut on the Emmylou Harris/Rodney Crowell album "Old Yellow Moon."
Doug Gill is a Monterey, California native and has a knack for
reaching into his own heart and finding the core of emotions that drives us all. Doug might just be writing the story of your life as he has spent the last thirty years writing, recording and performing music in Nashville. He has worked with some of the best writers and musicians on the planet and has had songs recorded by a long and illustrious list of artists, including Patty Loveless, Pam Tillis, Chris LeDoux, Tammy Wynette, Wynonna and the Marshall Tucker Band. Doug's song "I Just Come Here For The Music" was recorded by Don Williams and Alison Krauss on Williams' new album, "And So It Goes", and nominated for a Grammy award.
Doug currently operates his own publishing company, Peacehouse Music, and has released two fine
studio albums, “Stronger Back” and “Everyman”. His powerful songs speak of strength and redemption,
passion and perseverance, and he sings them with a voice that resonates with the truth.
Lynn Langham is a native Texan and began her performing and songwriting career in Austin. She lived and performed in both New York and Los Angeles before moving to Nashville. She has opened shows for John Prine, Rodney Crowell, Cheech and Chong, Leon Redbone, Asleep at the Wheel and Larry Gatlin, to name a few. While in L.A., she did character voices for the popular toy, Teddy Ruxpin, a talking teddy bear that has sold over thirty million tapes worldwide. She has also appeared as a studio musician and back-up vocalist on numerous recordings by such artists as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Albert Lee and Jerry Lee Lewis.
As a staff writer for Hayes Street Music in Nashville, Lynn has had songs recorded by Wynonna, Carolyn Hester, Ty Herndon, Trisha Yearwood, Lynn Anderson and Holly Dunn among others. She has also had numerous songs released by independent artists, including Elizabeth Cook and Shake Russell. "Trains", in collaboration with Texas artist Bonnie Bishop, was in the Texas Top Ten for several months. Most recently, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell recorded her song "Old Yellow Moon", written with Hank DeVito. It is the title cut of their new duet album "Old Yellow Moon" and Lynn is playing piano on the track.
Her beautiful, contemplative songs and a delivery of pure honey and southern smoke make Lynn Langham one of the most spellbinding performers you will ever see.
