ON­STAGE THIS WEEK

Pasatiempo - - On Stage This Week -

The blue moon of Ken­tucky keeps on shinin’, and this week­end, part of Louisville’s ra­di­ant glow de­scends on Santa Fe. The Troubadours of Divine Bliss de­liver rootsy Gypsy-folk strings, ac­cor­dions, and vo­cal har­monies that go down sweeter and smoother than cask-aged Ken­tucky bour­bon. Band mem­bers

Renee and Aim Me, who be­gan their mu­si­cal jour­ney as New Or­leans street per­form­ers af­ter meet­ing in (and leav­ing) the Pen­te­costal church — have been play­ing to­gether for more than 20 years. Catch their en­er­getic live show at 8 p.m. Fri­day, Feb. 18 (a night when a full moon hangs in the sky), at Cow­girl BBQ (319 S. Guadalupe St., 982-2565). Tick­ets are $5 at the door.

At 7 p.m. Fri­day, Feb. 18, the newly formed non­profit Santa Fe Per­for­mance Ex­change (for­merly Mike’s Mu­sic Ex­change) kicks off its 10-night Santa Fe Bands To­gether con­cert se­ries at its in­ti­mate per­for­mance space in the La Tienda shop­ping cen­ter in El­do­rado (7 Caliente Road, 466-3116) with a per­for­mance by singer-song­writer

Sean Healen. Also on the bill are Sharon Gilchrist and Arne Bey and Mar­garet Burke and Josh Martin. At 7 p.m. Satur­day, Feb. 19, Frogville Records’ alt-coun­try/folk singer­song­writ­ers Boris Mc­Cutcheon and

Joe West take the stage. Other acts in the se­ries in­clude Hi­lary Smith and Soul Kitchen, the Sa­vor Cuban en­sem­ble, and Bea­tles cover group the Nowhere Band (for­merly Fab Faux). Tick­ets for each con­cert are $10, $5 with the pur­chase of a Santa Fe Win­ter Fi­esta lan­yard. Visit www.santafeper­for­mance­ex­change. Two days be­fore they take part in the Con­certs From the Li­brary of Congress se­ries in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., clar­inetist Ed­die Daniels and pi­anist Roger Kell­away of­fer a con­cert in Santa Fe. Daniels, a Santa Fe res­i­dent, is one of the premier clar­inetists in jazz. He has recorded more than 20 al­bums since the 1960s and has played with Thad Jones, Paul Si­mon, Bette Mi­dler, Dave Grusin, and Ge­orge Benson. Kell­away goes back even fur­ther to jobs with Ben Web­ster, Clark Terry, and Wes Mont­gomery. The two per­form at 7:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Feb. 23, in the O’Shaugh­nessy Per­for­mance Space at the Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive. There is no charge.
