Joshua Lowe (Joshua Lowe and The Juncos) is a local singer-songwriter steeped in several traditions: folk, blues, old time and country. Sometimes calling his material "Post Modern American Roots", Josh has been teaming up with Patti Maxine in duo shows around Santa Cruz for several years now, and over the last year they have been working on an album of original music, "Family", for which this is the release show.

Patti Maxine (steel, lap steel, guitar, vocal) is a local icon who loves to play music as many time a week as possible, teaming up in duos to full bands of all genres and all ages playing the steel guitar, for which she is known as "The Queen of Steel". She won her first championship on this instrument over 60 years ago! She was the lead guitarist for local star group, Henhouse, for most of their existence and is also the musician who has played most times in our Ugly Mug series.

In this show Joshua will do most of the lead singing and playing guitar (and maybe banjo), with Patti blending perfectly with her lap steel and vocal harmonies, plus maybe a few solos herself. Whether it is a folk ballad, a rowdy country tune, or one of their originals, Joshua and Patti bring a natural ease and joy to their performances. http://www.joshualowemusic.com/

Bay Area singer, guitarist, and song sleuth Sylvia Herold mines the motherlode of American jazz and popular song from the 1930s through the 1960s. Songs of wit and romance by composers Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin, and Harold Arlen are lovingly rendered in a voice the San Francisco Examiner calls "mesmerizing." Herold was a member of the much beloved swing vocal trio Cats & Jammers, and of The Hot Club of San Francisco. Currently, she tours and records with Wake the Dead, The Lonestar Retrobates and The Sylvia Herold Ensemble. She has appeared on more than 25 albums, including five solo recordings. Herold is a resident teacher at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, Calif., and teaches guitar and voice at adult music camps across the U.S.

Chuck Ervin is an in-demand bassist in the Bay Area's vibrant jazz and acoustic-music scenes. He teaches bass at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, at adult music camps, and at his Oakland studio and recently joined the venerable outfit Sons of the Pioneers as bassist and vocalist.

Sylvia and Chuck, husband and wife, have played for us a couple of times before and it's great to have them back for our end-of-the-year party show. www.sylviaherold.com

"Sylvia Herold is one of those gifted musicians who has it all. Exceptional guitar playing, amazingly beautiful vocal chops, and the musical knowledge to back it all up. I love her music and musicianship." -Jim Nunally, musician/producer
