Sat. Feb. 18, 7:30pm Americana Angels with
Rita Hosking & Cousin Jack, Evie Ladin Band, Blushin' Roulettes
She has a voice like a "soulful howl from the mountains" (California Bluegrass Association), and "comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family's frontier experience" (FestivalPreview.com). A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita Hosking grew up with a deep regard for folk music and the power of voice. And her delivery is simply intense. Rita's latest record, Come Sunrise, was selected Best Country Album in the 2010 Independent Music Awards and 3rd Coast Music Magazine named her Female Artist of the Year for 2009.
Evie Ladin is a natural entertainer with "a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve." -SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE A Banjo player, step-dancer, singer, songwriter and square-dance caller with a lifetime of experience in traditional American cultural arts, Evie Ladin grew up in a trad folk scene up and down the Eastern Seaboard of the US, and tours the world, with her solo project Evie Ladin Band, with The Stairwell Sisters, (an all-gal old-time teardown) and Keith Terry & Crosspulse, performing rhythm-based multi-cultural music & dance works.
Hailing from the Mendocino coast, The Blushin' Roulettes deliver old-time tunes with a modern twist deeply rooted in a feminine perspective. Songwriter/guitarist Angela Rose belts her sweet and sultry tunes of damsels in their bliss and distress in a warbling vibrato often compared to Iris Dement and Dolly Parton.$16adv/$18door
