SF Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Show Saturday February 9th @ 7:45pm

Saturday, February 9th at 8pm (doors open 25 minutes before the concert). Tickets are $15 at the door; $12 in advance.

Show starts at 8:00pm, but let's meet by 7:45pm so we can get to meet each other. If you have any questions or need to find me at the show my mobile is[masked]-7806.

I am organizing this show with the Fantastic 50 + group. Between the 2 groups we have been having 15-20 people attending.

Featuring:

Dynamic Duos with: ANNE & PETE SIBLEY, MISNER & SMITH, MELODY WALKER & JACOB GROOPMAN Anne and Pete Sibley have had the blessing to share their versions of song and voice around the country and beyond for almost a decade.
A husband and wife duo that met over 20 years ago through music, they sing with simple accompaniment of guitar and clawhammer banjo. In doing so their fluid harmonies and songwriting are able to take center stage. Along with an easy going stage presence that leaves space for deep listening, Anne and Pete invite the audience to be part of a music experience. An experience which they hope will call each person to awaken their own simple joyful melody within themselves.

 

Misner & Smith are a gem of a musical pairing, offering a refreshing take on contemporary folk music. Their lovely harmonies and perfectly blended voices fit within classic American traditions, and their songwriting and storytelling transport the listener to a world of their creation. That is the hallmark of any folk singer worth his or her salt, but Misner & Smith have a truly unique quality in t...he chemistry of their duets that sets them apart from the field. Just when you thought you’d heard all that the Americana/Folk revival could show you, Misner & Smith bring a freshness and lyrical vitality you won’t find anywhere else.

 

Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman make music that brings together elements of folk and pop, old time music and Southern rock, with undertones of samba and Afrobeat. Their tight harmonies float over a richly textured mix of banjo, guitar, and mandolin on catchy originals and the occasional cover, like a terrific countrified version of the old Blondie hit, “Dreaming,” that somehow brings to mind dream songs by the Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison. The website Turnstyled Junkpiled calls their first album, Gold Rush Goddess, “easily one of the strongest Americana releases of 2012” and describes their music as “shot through with joyful diversity, fresh original songs, and an attitude that is unafraid to try something new on every track

    If anyone would like to have dinner before the show, we can meet at the Green Chili Kitchen located a couple blocks from the show. The address is 1801 McAllister. It is the only restaurant in the area and it can get crowded. We are meeting at the restaurant at 6:15pm. The restaurant can get crowded that is why I am having the meeting time at 6:15pm. Especially if the restaurant is crowded please call me and let me know that you are there. http://www.greenchilekitchen.co......

    I think I'd like to go, but how do we buy our ticket so we're in the "reserved" section? Thanks for any help.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
