Every April Mr. B (Mark Lincoln Braun) hosts a piano throw-down featuring himself and others of his ilk. This year's show features Mark, Al Hill, Bill Heid and Bob Seeley. Paul Keller and Leonard King will accompany each act (barring Seeley) on bass and drums, respectively. 3x3+1: 3 trios and 1 soloist. Bob Seeley will be the only 88-year-old on the bill, and coincidentally, that's the number of keys on your regulation piano. Get it? These posters, the fruit of our labors, will be on sale at the show. 12" x 18", 2-color letterpress printed on French Muscletone paper.

On a recent trip to Nashville, Tennessee we dropped in on the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Lo and behold, the Hatch Show Prints shop has been relocated to the first floor of the museum. The print shop is intact and operating behind two large glass walls, so we were able to watch this historic letterpress outfit in action. As well as an amply supplied bookstore, there is a gallery showcasing beautiful prints, old and new. Some of the woodcut blocks that the prints were made from are also on display.
