Red McAdam & Rebecca Porter at Pale Fire Brewing Co.
Friday, July 21st
Although he was born in the industrial heart of New Jersey, Red’s mother Maggie made sure that he would be reared on folk and country music. She served up a steady diet of American songwriters from Karen Dalton to Shania Twain to Dwight Yoakam on the kitchen radio day after day. Red’s father, a lifelong bass player, took it from there, teaching him mandolin, banjo, bass, and guitar. Forever restless, Red ventured through dozens of genres before returning to his Country roots. He ventured out West on the heels of heartbreak and made a home in the high desert of Northern Arizona where he now lives.
