Let me tell you about Run on Sentence: Portland, Oregon-based folk crooner Dustin Hamman grew up in Omaha, Neb., and says that at an early age he started writing folk ditties—when he’s not playing as a trio, his solo work skews stomp-happy Americana with trumpet flourishes, such as on “Out in the Woods”; or booming bass-drum blasts, such as on “I Am the Blood,” where he asks, “Will you think of all the other ways that this life could have gone? / Will you marvel at the way that it has been?”—and his voice, years later, is crisp but dark, enchanting but stern and to the point. Unlike the latter run-on sentence. With Ellie Fortune. 122 B Street in Davis; http://runonsentencemusic.com.
