On Friday, the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series stage will return to Smith’s Food and Drugs in Los Alamos. Next Tuesday, Smith’s will break ground for the new Smith’s Marketplace at the Trinity Site just across the street.
Most of Los Alamos has been anxiously waiting for this new shopping center. It will not only be the largest supermarket, but it will also offer other merchandise as well “Let me say this again, shop locally. It’s so tremendously important to the county’s health,” concert organizer Russ Gordon said. “So friends, we’re celebrating with a concert by Paula Nelson.”
Paula sings country, rock, Americana, blues and jazz and even some classics. “She’s a singer/songwriter, alto, soprano, twangy, sultry, sexy, sassy, sweet, blonde firecracker of an entertainer,” Gordon said.
Her influences are mostly her and her father’s best friends. At her childhood family picnics and Christmas parties were guests like Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Waylon Jennings and Jesse Colter, Leon Russell, Ray Price, Doug Sahm and other very, very famous people.
