On stage, Eliza presents a vibrant spontaneous mix of storytelling with self-effacing humor and tenderness, within a wide-ranging spectrum of human experience, from intimate love songs to political diatribe, accompanied by some of the best players in the world. At this show, Eliza will accompanied by Don Richmond. Don has been a founding member of bands like Tumbleweed and Hired Hands, and currently performs with the Rifters, a New Mexico-based band playing Southwestern Americana.

Additionally, Don has recorded seven solo CDs, two with his brothers Ed and Jim (The Richmond Brothers), and two with his friend and business partner David Clemmer (Richmond/Clemmer).
As owner of Howlin' Dog Recording and partner in Howlin' Dog Records, he has recorded and produced or co-produced hundreds of albums for local, regional, and national artists. Along the way, Don has become fluent in guitar (acoustic and electric), banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and pedal steel, as well as sometimes grabbing the trumpet, accordion, pennywhistle, hammered or mountain dulcimer, percussion, or keyboards for that particular color on a recording project.
