NOVEMBER 11, 7:30



Our November features two amazing acoustic guitarists, Doug Adamz and Mark Lemaire.

Guitarist, writer and storyteller in song: Doug Adamz makes the phrase “wide-ranging talent” sound woefully inadequate. He’s recorded with Peter Rowan and Huey Lewis; opened for Jerry Lee Lewis, Leo Kottke and the Chambers Brothers.

Adams’ new album, National Steel, lets him show his finger-style chops on a steel-bodied resonator guitar, along with down-home wisdom of about hard times that don’t seem to ease. And - oh yeah, he can play some blues.

Adams has recorded eight albums of his own songs and compositions, and his compositions have been used by Joffrey Ballet and featured in a film by Robert Altman. Another was commissioned by the Kronos Quartet.


Mark Lemaire is all over the guitar, with masterful finger style, slap-and-tap harmonics and hand percussion, in songs that range over emotions and moods from delicate guitar solos to raucous sing-alongs. He’s appeared on billings with Maria Muldaur, Steve Seskin and the Even Dozen Jug Band, and Stefan Grossman.

Much of Mark’s musical life has been spent on the other side of the microphone, recording folk, rock, metal and Latin artists, the San Francisco Symphony and other classical groups.

Mark’s own recordings include “Rubato: Pieces for Guitar,” music for contemplation, conversation, or healing; and “Home Isn’t Home,” a sampling of arrangements and instrumentation as performed on stage with his musical and life partner, Cindy van Empel Lemaire, and his newest recording of guitar pieces, "Equinox."

The Adamz/Lemaire show is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 at First Methodist Church of Point Richmond, 201 Marina Avenue in Point Richmond, an acoustically and architecturally perfect environment for handmade music.  The Point Richmond Acoustic series of concerts is in its seventh season of bringing musicians and audiences together in an intimate space that’s bigger than living rooms and smaller than most concert halls, for a special kind of musical experience.

Tickets are $16 in advance, or $20 at the door.

About Point Richmond Acoustic
In our sixth season,  Point Richmond Acoustic is sponsored by Point Richmond Music and the First Methodist Church. The church itself is intimate and an acoustic marvel. Built more than a century ago, it's an octagonal wooden prism that appears to be built by nautical carpenters. It’s like listening to music inside a guitar.


Our program is non-religious. A friendly no-pressure environment – it’s all about the music here! Ample parking is available downtown, just two blocks away.
