"We’ve not had the pleasure of enjoying a Rita Hosking performance," writes Jim Huckabay, "but have listened to her music and enchanting voice. If you’re familiar with Gillian Welch, then you’re not far away with Rita. A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with a deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice. The California Bluegrass Association (go figure) calls her voice “A soulful howl from the mountains”.
She’s ably supported by instrumentalist Sean Feder (banjo, dobro & guitar), so expect some good pickin’ & slidin’ behind Rita’s songs about miners, mountains, trailers, stray dogs and forest fires."

Sun, April 17, 7 pm at Fairfield Studios.
$20 plus donation to supper by Stone's Throw catering.
