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

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

Over the past three years this Canadian-American duo has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, and has made one tour to Europe. They have released four albums of their diverse and uplifting original material. Their latest, "Driving by Candlelight" was in October 2018.

Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Series 2019

Goodnight Moonshine
Molly Venter of Red Molly, with Eben Pariser.
A special early Sunday show!

Saturday, October 6th 6:00pm Tickets $20 adv / $23 door
Presented by Fiddling Cricket Concerts & Canyon Acoustic Society
AT THE UGLY MUG CAFE

Fabulous vocalist, Molly Venter, one third of Red Molly, will be back in town for a special show, gracing our stage with husband and guitarist Eben Pariser, in their duo project, Goodnight Moonshine.

"few singers turn first time listeners into eternal fanatics as effortlessly as Molly Venter" says American Songwriting Magazine. Molly's trademark, the emotional potency of her voice, can change from a sweet moan to gritty shout and back, and is surrounded and supported by a landscape of harmonies and minimalist orchestrations conceived by Eben, on vocals and electric guitar. Venter's voice has caught the ear of industry giants, and been prominently featured on television, Apple Computers, and in Warner Brothers films. Willow Tree was a #1 hit on the folk charts in 2014 and was featured in USA Today.

Co-writing often, the couple uses the creative process to explore a healthy relationship and sing of grief and joy in equal measure; Molly gives smooth delivery to Eben's assertions while Eben gives form and focus to Molly's raw passion. Courageous unveiling, and depth, of experience make the collaboration between this married couple, and now parents, addictively captivating. In addition, in live shows they include a number of eclectic covers. Consummate performers, Molly and Eben have also appeared nationally and internationally, 100+ shows a year, with their respective bands Red Molly and Roosevelt Dime.

Molly and Eben visited us in January this year. It is an honor they want to return so soon. www.goodnightmoonshine
