, KYAC Community Radio 90.1 FM
As we start the new year of 2023, we are delighted to be able to continue the KYAC concert series at Stewart’s Hall at 158 SW Broadway, Mill City. If you spend anytime listening to real country radio stations, like KYAC 90.1 in Mill City, you know KYAC knows and plays real country music. Our next Concert is JONI HARMS from Canby Oregon. Ken has known Joni for many years (38). Not only has he played nearly everything she has recorded, but even played in her band briefly. He knows real Country music.
This is what is said about JONI HARMS:
“Growing up, I learned to sing and write songs by listening to Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and George Strait,” says Harms. “I remember seeing Emmylou Harris, and, after playing a while with the famous Hot Band, she returned to the stage with just her black Gibson guitar and proved if you can truly sing, write a song and play your guitar, then you can entertain your audience all by yourself.”
Although it is always special to perform with a great band, Joni held onto that challenging lesson and enjoys performing for radio stations and at various events with just her guitar, showing off that pure country voice she has been praised for since she signed her first record deal with the famed music producer Jimmy Bowen of Capitol Records in the early 1990s. Any singer will tell you not everyone can entertain that way, but Joni is a master.
