Roy Book Binder
Singer-Songwriter-Storytelling-Bluesman / "The book is the real deal", Jorma Kaukonen

Jorma Kaukonen on recording Roy Book Binder's Song: "Nobody writes in the idiom better than Roy Book Binder. He is a master player, singer, writer and teller of tales -- true tales. He wrote THE PREACHER PICKED THE GUITAR and passed it on to me. It is an honor to include it here.

Roy's eclectic repertoire includes blues, country tunes, bluegrass, folk, and popular songs that originated on Tin Pan Alley. Roy has the goods: the original, the bare-knuckle, the low-down blues. Who can say they were friends with the Rev. Gary Davis and Pink Anderson? And toured with Arthur Big Boy Crudup, Hot Tuna & Bonnie Raitt? Roy can. He has the stories, the licks, and the mystery of timeless music in his fingers. He's been featured on a PBS special and interviewed by Terry Gross on Fresh Air. Roy is included in the Blues Who's Who and The Big Book Of the Blues. http://www.roybookbinder.com

When he rolls his 'Tour Bus' to town, a one-man blues-fest ensues. He plays and he entertains, feeding us music and stories, and the evening is a celebration for us all. We're privileged to have Roy here to preserve–and extend—the tradition of great American blues music.” - James Hip-Tiberon Daily

Hailed as the finest and most diverse banjo player in the UK and possibly Europe (also an excellent singer, songwriter and guitarist), Dan Walsh has been described as 'the real deal' (UNCUT magazine). He has four critically acclaimed solo albums, and a new one coming up. As well as many tours of the UK (solo; The Dan Walsh Trio; The Urban Quartet), he also visits Canada, Germany, India, Norway New Zealand, and the US for performances and band camps. This unique and eclectic young musician has delighted audiences across the world, and has had millions of U-Tube hits. At the heart of his music are British, Irish and American folk tunes, mixed with doses of funky grooves, humour, socially relevant lyrics and his own dazzling take on banjo style….including playing Indian ragas, that will challenge any preconception you have about the instrument. Dan delighted and amazed Ugly Mug audience a couple of years ago and we are delighted to have him return as part of his US tour this year. www.danwalshbanjo.co.uk www.theufq.com

Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Series 2019

Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally Band
Alt-Roots, Folkbilly!

Friday, June 21st, 7:30pm (doors open at 7.00pm) Tickets $18 adv / $20 door

The Nell & Jim Band bring together genre-busting artists and joyful music infused with folk, bluegrass, americana, roots, swing, jazz, and blues. Alt-Roots, Folkbilly - whatever you call it - it's original, well done, and a pleasure to hear. Featuring Nell Robinson on flute & vocals, and Jim Nunally on guitar & vocals, with backing by Jim Kerwin on upright bass, and Alex Aspinall on percussion, this configuration of the band gave an outstanding performance for us about a year ago.

Nell (aka Hilary Perkins) started her professional singing career later in life, "after 25 years of singing in my car", but has one of the finest voices in roots music. She honors her southern roots by taking, as her stage name, that of her Alabama grandmother.

Jim, as performer, composer, and record producer has been a staple of Bay Area bluegrass and traditional music for a quarter of a century. He has worked with many bands (including David Grisman) and has received Grammy and IBMA awards and has twice won the Western Flatpicking Guitar Championship. www.nellandjim.com

Martha Scanlan & Jon Neufeld plus Will Fourt & Sheila Golden
Acclaimed songwriter Martha Scanlan has been covered by great artists – what a treat to hear her live

Martha Scanlan & Jon Neufeld: Anyone familiar with Martha Scanlan and Jon Neufeld's unique alchemy on stage will not be surprised by the sense of being taken into the moment their shows are in and of themselves a journey of improvisation; the way Jon Neufeld's brilliant innovative guitar playing weaves effortlessly around Martha's timeless songwriting is simply magical. They met playing together at Portland's Indie Roots festival Pickathon in 2010, shortly before recording Tongue River Stories, a beautifully stark album of field recordings captured on film at the 120-year-old family ranch where Martha was living and working in a remote corner of south east Montana. After touring with the innovative old-time string band Reeltime Travelers, Martha recorded her debut solo album The West Was Burning at Levon Helm's barn in Woodstock, New York with Dirk Powell and Levon and Amy Helm, it was heralded as an instant classic, one of those rare albums that defies genre and generation. After Tongue River Stories came The Shape Of Things Gone Missing, The Shape Of Things To Come, recorded in Portland with members of Black Prairie and The Decemberists. A featured album by World Cafe's David Dye and No Depression's Amos Perrine. https://www.facebook.com/marthascanlanmusic

Will Fourt & Sheila Golden are an acoustic duo out of the Santa Cruz Mountains. They bring a little swing, a little bluegrass, and some good old fashion folk and they write a lot of songs. In 2016 they made an album, Mendocino Paintings, produced by Jim Lewin. They play festivals with their full bluegrass band, The Down Beets. https://willandsheila.bandcamp.com

Fabulous Friends Indeed….Dan Frechette, Gary 'Sweetpea' Cunningham, Tom Leitzke, Rachel Goodman and Laurie Patton join Andy Fuhrman for an evening of Brooklynbilly music - a mix of Originals, Folk, Classic Country, Rockabilly, Oldies and a taste of Brooklyn street corner doo-wop tunes.

Andy began singing acapella doo-wop in 1962 in the 6th grade with his singing pals Louie and Pablo on the Brooklyn street corners, hallways, bathrooms, anyplace they could find an echo. Across the long journey, music has been his ever-present wingman. Music of the 60's, Woodstock, arriving in Santa Cruz in 1971 and latching on to Classic & Outlaw Country, Rockabilly tunes and the KFAT sound has been Andy's sweet spot, apparent in his live performances and his weekly Brooklynbilly Music Mashup radio show on KSQD 90.7FM every Tuesday 11am-1pm, tune into 90.7FM or stream over the web at www.ksqd.org .

Andy Fuhrman and His Fabulous Friends will stick with the game plan mashing up these genres with band members taking turns singing lead and backup vocals. From the ever lovely voices of Rachel Goodman and Laurie Patton, to the Dylanesque sound of Dan Frechette, this will be a memorable evening. www.andyfuhrman.com
