Western Centuries
“What a relief! Country music is alive and well—” Willie Watson
Wednesday, September 5th, 7:30pm $10/$10
21 and over
FC Cosponsored Show, Presented with Snazzy Productions
AT MICHAEL'S ON MAIN
2591 Main St, Soquel, CA 95073, Reservations online or call 831 479 9777

Western Centuries players come with great pedigrees: Ethan Lawton worked with Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers, Cahalen Morrison with Eli West, and Jim Miller with Donna the Buffalo. With their new album Songs from the Deluge, out April 6, 2018 on Free Dirt Records, Western Centuries brings three powerful songwriting voices together. “What a relief! Country music is alive and well. Great players, fine songwriting, and honest singers. These guys are doing it right.” — Willie Watson. "If it seems crazy to compare any band today to giants like the Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers, then call me crazy, but Western Centuries is the country supergroup we've been waiting for: three first-rate lead singers, each of whom writes solid, heartwarming and heartbreaking country songs, together in one band.” — Exclaim! Magazine. Western Centuries' music crosses vastly differing geographies–the city, the southwest, the metaphysical. Their musical influences are diverse. Together, they weave a tapestry of western music, without sacrificing their hard-earned country dancehall sound. Songs from the Deluge will levitate heavy hearts, turn spilled beer into ballads, and bring country music home as literate, epic odysseys from parts unknown.www.westerncenturies.com/home




Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Series 2018

Ronstadt Brothers
Preserving 5 generations of Roots Tradition
Thursday, September 13th, 7:30pm (doors open at 7.00pm) Tickets $15adv / $18 door donation
Presented by Fiddling Cricket Concerts & Canyon Acoustic Society

Ronstadt Brothers led by cellist Michael G. and Peter D. Ronstadt (guitar and banjo) along with multifaceted drummer Aaron Emery, present a new and fresh take on the traditional Southwestern and Mexican folk songs and offer innovative original material to those discovering the treasure of roots music. This musical journey will take you from the past to the present steeped in the Americana vein, carrying forward a sound closely tied in its infancy to their aunt Linda Ronstadt and their father Michael J. Ronstadt and the 5 generations of Ronstadt music from Tucson. Please join them on their journey through the Post-Modern American West as they share a little piece of their home with the world and take a little bit of the world back home with them.

In 2013 we were fortunate enough to have Ronstadt Generations (Michael J and his two sons, Michael G. and Peter), play in the Ugly Mug concert series. That concert, with its wonderful intimate vibe, received the best audience feedback of all the 150 or so shows we have had there before and since. Since their father's death, Michael G and Peter have tried to carry on in the same spirit, so please make them welcome back to our stage.http://www.ronstadtbrothers.com

"The Ronstadts preserve & redefine a century-plus family tradition, integral to the diverse tapestry of American music." -Stephanie P Ledgin, author, Discovering Folk Music

The husband and wife duo of Curtis Teague and Loretta Simonet, from Minneapolis are "old school" folkies. They deliver finely honed vocal harmonies and have abundant talent on an array of stringed instruments (mandocello, mandolin, Celtic harp, guitar, uke, and banjo). Their traditional roots are deep, based on the English folk form, though much of their material is original and contemporary. They have been singing and playing together ever since a chance meeting on a Santa Cruz beach in 1977, where Loretta was practicing guitar for a variety show. They have 9 CD's, have shared the stage with many folk luminaries over the years, and have been voted "Best Acoustic Performers in The Twin Cities" in the past. They used to play regularly in the Bay Area and Santa Cruz areas, and resumed doing this a couple of years ago . They were also one of the first acts to play for Fiddling Cricket some 20 years ago.http://www.curtisandloretta.com

"acoustic virtuosity on guitar, Celtic harp, mandolin…." - Dirty Linen

"Simonet's vocals are heartrenderingly lovely…" - The A List, City Pages (Minneapolis)
