TAMA’s fall show packs ’em in at the Cottonwood

The Truckee Alliance for the Musical Arts’ fall show, “Wood & Steel: An Acoustic Tradition,” played to packed houses Thursday through Saturday at the Cottonwood Restaurant in Truckee.The show was a smorgasbord of acoustic music styles and selections. From Irish to cowboy to modern instrumental to bluegrass to folk to Latino music, acoustic fans could find something to their liking.Money raised from ticket and dinner sales will go to the non-profit organization’s scholarship fund. Each year, TAMA awards music scholarships to area high school seniors seeking to continue their musical education.Sparky Kramer, a popular local performer and the show’s director, said TAMA raised about $2,500 for scholarships.”It far exceeded my expectations and I thought it was an incredible success,” Kramer said.Kramer said he wanted to give local audiences a wide variety of acoustic music that showcased local talent.”People are totally delighted to be exposed to music that they otherwise might not have good music that runs the gamut of styles,” Kramer said. “The cast gave 100 percent and did an incredible job.”Sierra Sun E-mail: sun@tahoe.comVisitors Guide | News | Diversions | Marketplace | Weather | CommunityCopyright, tahoe.com.
