Summer Show at Le Chateau!


This is a brief but special invitation to join us for a night of music, warmth, and libation at our home in San Francisco. On a rapidly-approaching evening in late June, Le Chateau de Jambon will be graced with the very special presence of In Gowan Ring, excellent songsmiths and delightful performers surfacing on the whispers of the wind. On a rare jaunt down the West Coast, B’ee and Jessamyn will be joining us for a lovely evening here in the City. Now, we hope you’ll also accept.

The time: 8:00-10:00 pm
The date: Saturday, June 28th
The place: Le Chateau de Jambon – RSVP for the address

What to expect:
An evening to fill the senses. You may show up as early as 7:00 and of course you’re welcome to stay for chats and drinks after the music. We’ll be serving wine and tea, as well as light snacks throughout the night. We’ll have lots of pillows and candles and, if it’s chilly, a warm fire in the hearth; this will be a very comfortable, intimate affair! Feel free to bring some sitting pillows of your own or a drink of your choice to add to the mix. Please note that we will be charging $15 per person at the door, all of which will go to the band and toward refreshments for the evening.

In Gowan Ring (Birch Book) can perhaps be best described as warm neo-folk with a dark, ageless feel and the show will be all-acoustic.

“B’eirth of In Gowan Ring is a not merely a minstrel and a troubadour, a prophet and a living poem. Featuring resonant drones, hand-made instruments, and warmly-quiet vocal pieces, his songs reek heavily of time and place, infusing stories of the natural with the supernatural and holding up the spiritual (or meta-spiritual) string that connects us with our surroundings. With closed-eyes and a nearly magical effect, B’eirth invokes the vocal confluence of David Tibet and Nick Drake, tempered by a gravity and creativeness all his own. I learn something arcane and feel something special every time I listen to this band.” (DSL,


We are very limited on space, so we hope you’ll RSVP as soon as possible with your intention to join us. We kindly ask you to not invite more than one friend to come with you, and please make sure their presence is cleared first by contacting me by e-mail or by commenting here. Spaces will be offered first to those who are quick on the draw. Thanks for your time, and we hope to see you soon!

    How can I possibly respond to this and still retain some measure of dignity? 🙂

    I hope that you have a marvelous time. I will be sad to have missed it. (I will have just returned from the East Coast and will be preparing for the little one's 3rd BDay party.)

    Holy mackerel – how can it have been three years already? Happy Birthday to wee B – another Bee who is full of glee.

    Sounds delightful! I will do my very best to come; if you hear of someone coming from the Eastbay who can give me a ride in exchange for my paying the gas and bridge toll, so much the better.

    I'll keep my ears open, Kirsty. As it gets closer, however, I'll need a definite RSVP in order to save a space. But until then, I'll be asking around. Hope to see you!

    Thanks! Sorry I wasn't clear; that was meant to be a definite "yes" cause I have a car now; I just don't see as well at night as in the daytime, and am not used to driving in S.F., so it seemed prudent to seek alternatives. But your description of the music is irresistible (not to mention the company 🙂 ).

    You're written down for a slot, Kirsty. Looking forward to seeing you there.
