"Sin & Salvation" - A SF Old-Time & Bluegrass Festival concert with: The Mountain Men, Misisipi Mike's Southern Comforts, Fret Not
THE MOUNTAIN MEN are an Old-Timey stringband revue perfoming traditionals and originals.  Featuring members of The Trespassers, they bring in their high mountain, Yosemite-flavored sound.

MISISIPI MIKE'S SOUTHERN COMFORTS  
This all-star band take their classic country music serious. It's like these boys were born in the 20s, honed their chops in the 30s, became superstars in the 40s, and were killed by either drugs, drinking, or a plane or car crash in the 50s. Classic country music never sounded so classic. Pick up a CD or two, it will change your life. Featuring the best looking country boys this side of Misisipi Mike: Misisipi Mike Wolf (Misisipi Rider, The Mission Three, The Bootcuts, Sally Rides A Broom Stick), Mike Anderson (Hang Jones, The Cowlicks, 77 el Deora,Muffin & Cupcake), Leif Karlstrom (Lady A & The Heel Draggers, The Midnight Gamblers, Leif & Mrs. Garrett), Adam Roszkiewicz (The Whisky Richards, No More Tacos!) and Tony Sales (Misisipi Rider, Afternoon Delight Social Band, All You Can Eat Cream Corn Band).

FRET NOT plays
stomping old-time roots gospel. Lead by Lori Arthur's fiery singing, with songs from the traditions of America's black and white rural churches, it's as if the Whitstein Brothers and Sister Rosetta Tharpe held a barn dance together. In fact, Lori's grandparents did just that on their New Mexico ranch during the Great Depression, with Eugenia, her grandmother, on rhythm guitar just like Lori is now, and her great-uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather on banjo and twin fiddles. Most everyone else in Fret Not also leads or at least plays lead in church worship bands, or fronts their own gospel bands of two-timing pickers, or teaches true and right music to kids. So it's in their blood. It's also in their calling. Fret Not brings the old-time gospel to the dispirited and disheart-ened of modern life, with most appearances in prisons, recovery missions, funerals, and at benefits. There is something in the old songs  borne out of the suffering of slavery and company towns, failing farms, and untimely death  that prepares the heart to hear in the Word the only Uplifting Gospel there is.
