"Danny O'Keefe is one of the best songwriters, ever, anywhere, under any circumstances!"
Doug Haywood

Interview With Danny O'Keefe

Critically Acclaimed Songwriter Danny O'Keefe in Concert Oct 22nd with Doug Haywood

By Mariah Fleming

Many times you've heard these words: "You don't want to miss this show!" Well, there's a reason for that. There are a lot of great shows! And some are off the beaten path. This is one of those great "off the beaten path" concerts you really don't want to miss. On Saturday night October 22, Danny O'Keefe, one of the preeminent songwriters from the 1960's and beyond, appears at the intimate Fiddler's Dream Coffeehouse in Phoenix. Think "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues," "Angel Spread Your Wings" and the first O'Keefe song that made me fall in love with his songwriting, "Magdalena." O'Keefe co-wrote "Well, Well, Well" with newly announced 2016 Nobel Prizewinner Bob Dylan. O'Keefe's newest release "Light Leaves the West" is yet another masterpiece. Doors open at 7:00. The concert begins at 8:00. For ticket price and other event info go to www.fiddlersdream.org. Learn more about O'Keefe in the interview that follows this article.

Opening for O'Keefe is another superb songwriter, Doug Haywood. His wry wit is on display when calls himself "The most famous musician you've never heard of." Haywood has been part of the music of iconic artists like Jackson Browne (with whom he has toured for decades) and many more. You can find out more about him in the interview I did when he appeared solo at Fiddler's Dream. He and O'Keefe know each other. Haywood said he met O'Keefe in around 1975 when O'Keefe came to the rehearsal hall to teach "The Road" to Jackson Browne. "I'd heard Danny on the radio, of course," Haywood explained. "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" is a great song I liked very much. Then later, maybe '77 or '78 Danny called me to sing and play in his band on a tour opening for Joan Baez."
