Write-Up In Advocate

This is from this week's Valley Advocate:
Nightcrawler: Ohlenbusch Unaccompanied
Henning O plans solo show

He may be a member of some half dozen of the area's more high-profile bands and a contributor/collaborator to virtually all of the others in varying ways. But at the end of the day, veteran Valley musician Henning Ohlenbusch has always considered himself a singer/songwriter. And at the end of several days turned weeks turned months, the affable multi-instrumentalist says he realized it had been a while since he last sat down by his lonesome and delved deep into his copious collection of pretty pop ditties. And, with some help from his friends the Lonesome Brothers, that's a situation he says he plans to remedy this Friday, May 22 at Mocha Maya's in Shelburne Falls.

"I was itching to get back out solo, and Ray Mason [of the Lonesomes] suggested the venue," Ohlenbusch explains. "So I went there to see the Lonesome Brothers play, and just loved everything about the evening... the band, of course, and the friendly and comfortable atmosphere."

In addition to selections from his solo CD catalogue and tunes from his bands School For The Dead and Humbert, the evening's headliner says that he may very well dust off some chestnuts that, for whatever reason—not fitting in properly with a certain batch of material, or simply being brand spanking new—never found their way onto recorded media. Ohlenbusch, unaccompanied, starts at 8 p.m., and admission is free.
