Sherry Austin is well known to audiences as the leader of Sherry Austin and Henhouse, and has played several concerts with this band at The Ugly Mug over 8 years of our series there. It is not often she can be persuaded to do a solo show, so we were lucky to get her for this one. Her material is pure Americana - a mixture of classic folk, country-folk, and folk-rock, and she sings only where it's comfortable - no screaming or stretching. Her compositions, and the covers she chooses, show off her warm contralto voice, fully engaging the audience with her lyrical skills and clarity of delivery. Sherry is, of course, a huge Kate Wolf fan, performing much of Kate's material and being regularly invited to perform at the Kate Wolf Festival. Her most recent CD is "Love Still Remains", a collection of Kate Wolf songs.

Joining Sherry on stage will be bassist Tracy Parker (who may sing a couple too) and there may be some shared tunes with Rick also.

"In her unassuming way, she is a much bigger talent than she gives herself credit for" -Brad Kava, SJ Mercury News.

Rick Shea is a deeply evocative singer and a formidable acoustic and electric guitarist. He grew up where the urban sprawl of East LA met the desert of San Bernadino, and, right out of high school, became immersed in both the coffee house folk and the country scenes of that time (1978) and place, playing 7 nights a week as a sideman and singer. Since then he has worked as a multi-instrumental sideman with several well-known groups, most notably touring with, and opening for, Dave Alvin and The Guilty Men for many years. Parallel to this he has developed a successful solo career, covering a wide range of styles from hard country to traditional folk, all with equal ease and confidence, as demonstrated on his solo CD, "Shelter Valley Blues", released a few years ago. He has a new CD just out "The Town Where I Live".

"Staunchly independent - represents the best of California music" -LA Weekly
