SEQUOIA ROSE -- no stranger to the bluegrass community, Sequoia is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and vocalist residing in Humboldt County, California. Originally from South Western Pennsylvania and raised in a musical family who played at churches, revivals, and local bluegrass events, they quickly became a crowd favorite in the area. Sequoia's big break came when he received a call from the late great James King to play the mandolin for him. Thrilled at the chance to play with a bluegrass legend Sequoia wasted no time and drove straight down to Virginia, got in a 15-passenger van, and played 150 shows in a year with the 20-year “Rounder Records” Veteran. During this time, Sequoia played at some of the most notable bluegrass festivals and venues of the time, including Grey Fox (New York), Bean Blossom (Indiana), The Freight & Salvage Theater (Berkeley), The Station Inn (Nashville), and countless others.
Today Sequoia Rose is performing with a great band featuring hard-driving bluegrass tunes, psychedelic jam band instrumental breaks, and innovative original country songwriting to create an authentic yet unique and immersive experience you don't want to miss!
SOLID GOLD STRANGER -- Marin, CA based string band that specializes in playing harmony-rich bluegrass, old-time fiddle tunes, and original acoustic folk music. This modern-day old-time bluegrass band is a must see!
KEVIN CARDUCCI -- Kevin made his mark on the Bay Area music scene as one half of the Easy Leaves, a country/folk/Americana local favorite. After 13 long years the Easy Leaves hung up their hats. But lucky for us, recently Kevin dusted off his hat, moved to San Francisco and formed a new country band with an old country sound.
NOELLE & THE DESERTERS -- (South) Western Honky Tonk from the high desert of New Mexico to the golden hills of California. Noelle Fiore and her band draw inspiration from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, J.J Cale, Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and the great outlaw country players of yesteryear. Her band includes seasoned players from the Bay Area and Sacramento.
