Saturday, Oct. 28, is the date for the next Tunesmith Night in the dining room at Lear's Main Street Pub & Grill in Enterprise.

Designed as an opportunity for the public to pay tribute to songwriters and their contribution to the world of music, Tunesmith Night is a monthly feature at Lear's. The August and September events were very well received, and this month promises an exciting program as well.

October features Tunesmith Night founder Al Bell, known for his work with Yellah Dog band and Jimmy Lloyd Rea and the Switchmasters; Joseph music store and recording studio owner Henry Kinsley with authentic Wallowa County country; Joe Schlick brings his bluesy rock and intelligent lyrics from Stevenson, Wash.; and an acoustic debut of local young songwriting team Jacob Schoen and Joey Carper, also known as Handful of Dreams.

The songwriters will perform in an informal round-robin style, in the tradition of such musical havens as Nashville's Bluebird Cafe. Dinner seating begins at 6 p.m. Songwriter presentations begin at 6:30 p.m.

Call Lear's at 426-3300 for your reservation. For more information on the songwriters, one may visit (
