"In scorching form" (UK Telegraph), Northern California's own Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope.  From major U.S. festivals to Bob Harris's BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, "a captivating performer," (R2 Magazine.)  Rita brings her show to Alberta Street Pub, Thursday November 7, with local mandolin-guitarist, singer-songwriter Lincoln Crockett opening and accompanying Rita on her set.

Rita's style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised for capturing the audience.  Honors include winner of the 2008 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest, and more.  "This California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family's frontier experience," (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com) and Rita's fans call her "the real deal."  A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.  

More press:

"Her breed of Nor Cal country folk ain't quite old-timey, and it ain't quite bluegrass, but damn it's sweet. For fans of Emmylou and Gillian, this one's a safe bet. The songs of Rita Hosking are as fragile as a newborn baby, and defiant as a West Virginia coal miner." --Stuart Mason, Fiddlefreak Folk Review

"Heartfelt country soul set by someone who has quietly become one of the best...Hosking is a real talent, and sits up alongside Nanci Griffith as someone who understands the human heart and can touch it every single time." --Jeremy Searle, Maverick Magazine

"She's been called the best kept secret in country folk and Rita's razor-sharp songs and great live performances bear out the claim."  --The Daily Mirror, April 5 2013

Opening for and accompanying Rita will be Lincoln Crockett, local mandolin master and word wizard, once ubiquitous on the Portland pub scene, but currently a scarce sighting having settled into a less frenetic domestic lifestyle in Trout Lake, Washington.  

"Lincoln Crockett has a voice like wind in the hills. There's honesty, vulnerability, and an edge of loss in these modern bluegrass-tinged tunes. Excellent mandolin and guitar playing only highlight the spiritual edge of his singing."  Dan Linn, Rosedrop Media Circus

This show is produced by Matt Miner Presents, in cooperation with the Americana Agency, Durham, N.C.  For more information contact Matt Miner
