Nell Robinson w/John Reischman & the Jaybirds, The Nashvillains, the Henriettas
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Opening Night Show
Rollicking vocals, whirling banjos, bluegrass and old-time music: Nell Robinson w/John Reischman & the Jaybirds -- distinctive bluegrass and country vocals with world-class pickin'. We also are featuring the Henriettas -- those fine-feathered song sisters fresh from A Prairie Home Companion.

Nell Robinson with John Reischman & the Jaybirds  Known for her rollickin' stage presence, Nell Robinson has joined forces with one of the best group of pickers around John Reischman & the Jaybirds. "One of the most refreshing voices in bluegrass. There is more than a little hint of Emmylou Harris (without the vibrato) and a dash of Hazel Dickens" (Penguin Eggs Magazine). The new ensemble opens the festival with a very special evening of three-part harmonies, whirling banjos, original music, and traditional favorites. Nell's debut album, Nell Robinson in Loango, made bluegrass and Americana charts throughout the country and she was quickly snapped up by Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and Strawberry Music Festival. "Loango utterly won me over, charmed me silly!" (Sing Out! Magazine). She's headlined and sold out the Freight & Salvage Coffehouse -- don't miss out this time!

The Nashvillains, an acoustic supergroup featuring virtuosos James Nash of The Waybacks on guitar, Bill Evans on banjo, and Bryan Horne from Hot Buttered Rum on bass, along with some surprise guests, promise an evening of innovative, high-octane picking. Sit back, set aside your expectations, and enjoy as this dynamic ensemble pushes the boundaries of bluegrass to parts unknown. Please check here for updates on this exciting show!

The Henriettas (Cary Sheldon and Nell Robinson, with Tony Marcus) revive the music of the DeZurik Sisters, the 1930s novelty yodelling duo who were stars of the National Barn Dance and Grand Ole Opry. Fresh from their appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, these fine-feathered song sisters are joined by Tony Marcus: radio announcer, foil and bass player. You'll find their music on Nell Robinson in Loango: "As a bonus, there's a brief "radio show" by Nell and Cary Sheldon as the Henriettas, supposedly a sister act given to clucking like chickens. This pastiche of the Carter Family radio broadcasts is hilarious and winsome" (Sing Out! magazine). Photos and music can be found at
