Cottonwood to host second ‘Streets of Truckee’ revue

Staff report

Historical characters complemented Richard Blair's musical performance at Cottonwood.

TRUCKEE, Calif. — You may already be in the know about a recent musical theater event the Cottonwood Restaurant and Bar hosted, featuring local singer-songwriter Richard Blair. Richard recorded a CD entitled "Streets of Truckee" that focuses on the historical events that shaped the town and region.

On Oct. 13 he performed the songs from the CD, with interpretive performances from actors who depicted the historical characters in his songs. Narrated by Ted Owens, the show was an instant sell-out and a great success. Cottonwood owner Mike Blide is happy to announce a second performance has been scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 17, which is expected to be another sell-out.
