Ce­les­tial sounds: Blue Sky Trio

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Michael Han­dler — bet­ter known as “Har­mon­ica Mike” — used to play with a band called Coun­try Blues Re­view, but about a year ago he started jam­ming ca­su­ally on gui­tar at so­cial gath­er­ings with singer/song­writer James Har­lan. It went so well they started get­ting lit­tle gigs around town. Now joined by flautist Hope Kiah, the newly named Blue Sky Trio plays its first gig as part of the singer/song­writer se­ries at the High Note (132 W. Wa­ter St., 505-991-8771). Han­dler de­scribes their sound as a cross be­tween blues and jazz, with plenty of orig­i­nal songs as well as a few jazz stan­dards. The Blue Sky Trio plays on Wed­nes­day, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. as the open­ing act for Jaime Michaels, a folk singer and song­writer from Santa Fe, who per­forms with Melissa Greener, a singer, song­writer, and guitarist from Nashville. Michaels is about to release his tenth al­bum, Once Upon a Dif­fer­ent Time. There is a $5 cover charge. — J.L.
