An Aloha Music & Hula Matinee-- Singer-songwriter Mailani Makainai and Hula Dancer / Miss Aloha Hula  Kaui Dalire

Sun. Oct. 4 at 2pm
$12 adv./$15 door  seated <21 w/parent

Mailani: Singer-songwriter Mailani Makainai returns to the Hawaiian music scene with her first solo album on the Mountain Apple Company label. “Mailani” features her beautiful, unique voice and original songs that have endeared her to fans in Hawai‘i and around the world. Mailani, who grew up in Kailua Town on O‘ahu's Windward Coast, is part of a musical family. She started singing at the age of two and taught herself ‘ukulele while in high school. It was at Maryknoll Schools that she met Lei Melket, with whom she later formed Keahiwai, one of the most popular female duos in Hawaii. Keahiwai released its first album, “Local Girls,” in May 2001. “Local Girls” garnered the duo two Na Hoku Hanohano Awards and growing acclaim. Their sophomore album, “Satisfied,” was released the following year in 2002, and included the hit song “Falling.” The duo went on to release three additional award-winning albums and tour throughout Polynesia and the West Coast. Her sweet distinctive voice and honest emotions come through in every song, making her one of Hawai‘i's most endearing rising stars.

Kaui Dalire  Hula Dancer / Miss Aloha Hula Shannon Kau`i Dalire won the title of Miss Aloha Hula in the prestigious Merrie Monarch Festival held annually in Hilo, Hawai`i. The months of sweat and tears put into training for this competition was not new to Dalire, but rather is in her blood. Her Mother received the recognition as the Merrie Monarch Festival's very first Miss Aloha Hula (referred to then as Miss Hula) back in 1971. The tradition would continue with Dalire's older sister, Kapua, who would compete and win the title in 1991. Dalire's own hard work came to fruition as the titled was bestowed upon her in 1992. Her younger sister, Keola, followed as well and succeeded in 1999, receiving her title.

In other words, Kaui, is from Hula royalty.

Walter Salas-Humara (of The Silos)
plus Jonathan Rundman


Frontman of  legendary indie-rock collective The Silos joins Jonathan Rundman both on tour supporting brand new albums

Mon. Oct. 5 at 7:30pm
$12 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent

How far apart are Cuba and Finland? How different are their languages, their climate, and their cultures? The families of Walter Salas-Humara and Jonathan Rundman stem from these respective countries, both escaping political unrest to settle in the United States. Musicians Salas-Humara and Rundman each find deep inspiration and significance in their disparate histories, evidenced in a uniquely American form of rock & roll songwriting. For the first time, Salas-Humara and Rundman will tour together, performing their own songs as well as collaborating as a duo. Audiences will hear Stonesy rock, melancholic folk, lyrics sung in Spanish, melodies from the Arctic Circle, and stories of longing, family, heartache, and homecoming. Walter Salas-Humara is supporting his new album Curve And Shake , his first solo project in 18 years. After decades of recording and touring with his legendary indie-rock collective The Silos, Curve And Shake showcases new sounds and a more nimble instrumentation, while retaining Salas-Humara's singular avant-gardist-goes-troubadour methodology.  Jonathan Rundman is supporting the new album Look Up , his own return to a solo career after three years on the road playing Finnish folk music with the acoustic duo Kaivama. Nordic influences weave throughout Rundman's folk/pop songs, and are heard in traditional instruments such as harmonium and mandola.

Sean Hayes


Deep-roots syncopation, dusty folk-stomping and a biorhythmic pulse ebb and thump throughout his soul-tinged songs

Sat. Oct. 10 at 9pm
$24 adv./$27 door ALL STANDING 21+

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents

If there were a map of Sean Hayes' 20-plus year career, it would be circuitous. A tangled criss-crossing of backroads and blue highways denoting place, influence, and trajectory. You can hear it in the deep-roots syncopation, in the dusty folk-stomp and in the biorhythmic pulse that ebbs and thumps throughout his soul-tinged songs. For Hayes, it's never been about the destination. It's always been about the journey: The words on paper, fingers on strings, impromptu dance parties, darkened clubs, late night mysteries, firing synapses, human connection, deeper meaning and the kind of beats that really make a body move. “I got moves the kids ain't seen,” he sings on “Magic Slim vs. Dynamite.” The smoke-and-sparklers dance party video for the song aptly captures the serious fun of his music. He's been compared to Bill Withers for his rhythmic sense and his soulfulness. Hayes forges songs that, even to the uninitiated, sound like hits.

Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group has made an international name for its special brand of Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms. The Tannahill Weavers began to attract attention when founding members Roy Gullane and Phil Smillie added the full-sized highland bagpipes to the on-stage presentations, the first professional Scottish folk group to successfully do so. The combination of the powerful pipe solos, Roy's driving guitar backing and lead vocals, and Phil's ethereal flute playing breathed new life into Scotland's vast repertoire of traditional melodies and songs.

Trout Fishing in America  8pm Adult Show

Fri. Oct. 16 at 8pm
 $20 adv./$20 door


Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing and yet seemingly unlikely musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. As individuals, they are about as different as one can imagine. Together, they blend seamlessly in a way that has captured the imagination (and hearts) of audiences of all ages for over three decades. Ezra on guitar and banjo stands 6'8? tall while Keith on bass stretches to 5'5 1/2? on a humid day. Ezra is more playful and extroverted while Keith is more serious and reserved. Each of them bring out the best in the other and the joy that comes from this musical interaction is contagious and impossible to deny. The duo has earned four Grammy Nominations and recently released “Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers”. Try saying that five times fast! The CD features tongue twisters, mind-benders, spooky situations and instantly identifiable slices of a kid's life. In September 2010, they changed gears and released a folk/pop CD called “Lookin' at Lucky”, the first full length CD for adults in 11 years. Included in their catalog is a children's book/CD “Chicken Joe Forgets Something Important” published through Secret Mountain. The spoken-word tale is followed by 11 original songs relating to the story. Real people and animals in Keith and Ezra's lives inspired the characters in the songs.

$17 adv./$20 door Dance – ages 21 +

Foreveland is a 14-piece tribute to one of the most amazing entertainers in the world, Mr. Michael Jackson.
Based in San Francisco, the group was formed in March of 2009 to honor Michael's musical genius and legendary showmanship. With four lead vocalists, four horns and a six-piece rhythm section, the ensemble is best described as a "Remarkable and Rocking Michael Jackson Revue."  Rather than be limited by a MJ impersonator and pre-recorded backing tracks, the band's unique approach is to celebrate the larger than life performances, imagination and infectious spirit of this legendary artist. The result is a fabulous and thumping 14-piece show band that pays homage to MJ's undeniable talent and timeless dance music.  And as the band likes to say, "Don't Blame It On The Sunshine, Don't Blame It On The Moonlight, Don't Blame It On The Good Times, BLAME IT ON THE BOOGIE!

$15 adv. /$15 door seated <21 w/parent

Amy Rigby : "It really is quite simple — no one of any gender or generation has written as many good songs in Rigby's realistic postfolk mode since she launched 'Diary of a Mod Housewife' in 1996." Robert Christgau, Village Voice

"Amy Rigby has no peer on the current pop scene. Her wit, emotional intelligence, and superior gift for melody have enabled her to capture a moment in the lives of men and women as precisely as Carole King did in the early 70's." Chicago Reader

"The poet laureate of bohemian domesticity." Memphis Flyer

Michael Gaither:  Whether you call it “Americana,” “folk,” or “singer-songwriter,” Michael Gaither is a storyteller. He takes the “write what you know” idea to heart, writing songs about both small towns and modern technology, with plenty of humorous takes on everyday life. A Santa Cruz County native, Michael also has a healthy preoccupation with locales from the past ("Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night") and present ("Highway 17") in his music. Michael has released four CDs of original songs, all of which have received international airplay.

Druha Trava 


Europe's Greatest All Time Bluegrass / American Roots Band

Thu. Oct. 22 at 7:30pm
$15 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent


Famed on both sides of the Atlantic for its "Czechgrass" fusion of acoustic, bluegrass, folk and rock, Druha Trava is the foremost band to emerge from the flourishing Czech bluegrass scene. Its virtuoso musicians can satisfy the most hardcore fans with scorching versions of traditional bluegrass standards. But as the band´s name "Second Grass" implies, DT reaches far beyond the classic bluegrass genre for inspiration. The band uses American roots music as a starting point for a synthesis of jazz, pop, folk and even classical motifs, transforming an iconic American idiom into a richly textured, highly personal statement. DT was formed in 1991 by the influential singer-songwriter Robert Krestan, multi-instrumentalist Lubos Malina and other veterans of the acoustic music scene that had long thrived in Czechoslovakia. Krestan´s original songs -- renowned for their enigmatic, at times provocative, lyrics -- make up most of the band´s repertoire, and they and Krestan´s raw, gritty vocals set the band apart.

Sun. Oct. 25 at 7pm
$15 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent


Chris O'Connell & The Smart Alecks: At the footloose age of 18 she found work with an upstart country music band calling themselves “Asleep at the Wheel”.  Chris graduated to fifteen years on the road, nine albums, dozens of awards including a Grammy with “The Wheel.  If the song has a beautiful melody, the singer puts it in your head and leaves it there for days. If the song tells a story, the singer makes it your story. That's what a great singer does. When Chris sings a blues, or country or jazz song, the genre label melts and the song takes you away.

Ginny Mitchell Trio: After releasing her first album and receiving widespread acclaim in Canada, Ginny Mitchell decided to bring her talent to California in 1991. Her music can best be described as a "rootsy" mix of Americana and country. An accomplished singer, writer and instrumentalist, Ginny began singing at age 4 and playing guitar at 12. First-time listeners and longtime fans alike are drawn in by her honest and soulful delivery, which has been compared to Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Linda Ronstadt , Roseanne Cash and the great Patsy Cline.

$10 adv./$10 door Dance – ages 21 +

The Show Ponies: The Show Ponies offer such vistas of the imagination on their newest EP, Run for Your Life (2014). Channeling the momentum of a few momentous years, founding ponies Andi Carder (lead vocals, banjo) and Clayton Chaney (lead vocals, bass) weave story and song with the same charm, pathos, and boldness that brought them from Texas and Arkansas to California where the Show Ponies were founded in 2011. Like so many iconic American voices over the generations, Carder grew up singing in church and performing in musical theater—musical heritage often apparent in performing what she likes to call “folk sassgrass.” Chaney's musical upbringing compliments Carder's sensibilities in drawing on the deep wells of country and folk.

Suzanne Wilde and the Black Hats play vintage style country western music.   Their songs of heartache, restraining orders, dirty dishes and whisky-soaked regret are delivered with soulful vocals, a driving beat and plenty of twang, to get you dancing, laughing and crying in your beer.

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents

Sarah summarizes the Pray for Rain experience as one of “stepping into the realm of discovering who we are as a band and as songwriters,” echoing a theme of the album itself, the process of change and transition. “You can find the best version of yourself in those hardest moments,” she said. To which Dan adds: “You have to be backed up against the wall in order to really feel those feelings and respond to them.” Pray for Rain is the sound of Pure Bathing Culture transforming from who they were to who they will be, of finding their way, ready to take steps both small and momentous on their musical path. To hear Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman tell it, their Portland, OR-based band Pure Bathing Culture has always evolved naturally and at a steady pace. “That's really the path we've been on as a band, always putting one foot in front of the other as opportunities presented themselves,” Versprille said. “The music just revealed itself to us as we kept going.”

$15 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent

The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival. 

"End of the World Again," quite possibly one of the most beautiful songs of homecoming ever written.  -The Bluegrass Situation.

 “What sets The Steel Wheels from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal of Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies. Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass weave in and out intricately throughout this record, painting vivid imagery which flows effortlessly, just teasing the lyrics enough to allow them to resonate within you.” Country Standard Time

The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.

West Coast Wildfire: Combining elements of Soul, Bluegrass, Blues, and Rock'n'roll with a modern sensibility, San Francisco's West Coast Wildfire has created a unique sound all their own. From beautiful ballads to bar room burners, there is a little something for everyone.

The Mermen plus The Shitones



"Cascading waves of dreamlike sound, Amazing! The Mermen have the oceanic thing down pat." THE VILLAGE VOICE. New York

$15 adv./$15 door Dance – ages 21 +

The Mermen: "Jim Thomas is a master of the ethereal, infusing his playing with textures from all corners of the progressive rock kingdom. Bristling sheets of guitar swell, then recede, then swell again, sometimes crashing in foamy sprays of feedback onto craggy rhythms, other times simply rippling toward the horizon on convoluted streams of reverb. The Mermen have long played on the power of the cinematic, but Thomas virtuosity doesn't allow for chaos---it allows only for boundless beauty, awe inspiring compositions and a startling inspiration.” ALIBI New Mexico

The Shitones a surf-inspired band featuring Shigemi "Shig33" Komiyama on drums, Jennifer Burnes on bass, and Jim Thomas on guitar. Their repertoire consists of surf cover tunes by greats such as Dick Dale, Jack Nietsche, and The Ventures as well as older rock and roll--Jimi Hendrix, early Fleetwood Mac, Quicksilver Messenger Service. You can never tell what gems might surface at a Shitones show--or who might be sitting in.

Celebration of Joni Mitchell
featuring Kimberly Ford 2pm Matinee


Joni's songs the way you want to hear them.  They have sold out every show in Southern California.

Sun. Nov. 8 at 2pm
$15 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent

"Kimberly Ford captures the vocals and inflections of the Joni Mitchell Songbook better than anyone in recent memory. She channels the spirit of the great historic master"  -- Mark McDonald Santa Barbara Jazz Society. 

When the counter-culture blossomed in the late 1960s, Joni Mitchell's poetic tales of free men in Paris, buskers who played for free, and love — lost and found — raised the bar for folk music fans everywhere. In time, she would meld rock, jazz and world music into a sophisticated style that captured the world's attention and several Grammy wins. Joni Mitchell was the soundtrack for a generation. Now singer Kimberly Ford has created "A Celebration of Joni Mitchell," a group of World Class musicians with a shared passion for Joni's music -and the chops to pull it off.  The band includes George Friedenthal on keys; Lee Rollag on guitar; Tom Buckner on saxophone; Tom Etchart on bass, and Charles Levin on drums. They perform songs from every decade of Joni's career. In the landscape of so-called "tribute bands," few have ventured into Joni Mitchell's music. Ford has been a fan since her coming-of-age years, where she learned to sing using Mitchell's soul-baring, 1971 “Blue” album as a primer. “Her poetry and melodies spoke to my experiences before I even had a language for them. From their first Sold-out Show in Santa Barbara, California it was obvious that this band has created something that makes people feel good.

Jeffrey Foucault 7pm Concert

plus Caitlin Canty

“Contemporary and Timeless” The New York Times

Sun. Nov. 8 at 7pm
$15 adv./$15 door  seated <21 w/parent

“I first saw Foucault play in a little Missoula theatre years ago, when many of us who grew up spinning our elders' albums—Townes and Dylan, John Prine and Greg Brown—wandered around dolorously wondering when the next real songwriter would come along. Stetson sweaty, that little vagabond spark in his eye, he spun out a long Beam-fueled set and when it was over I walked out into the warm rain and thought, Damn. So that's where he's been. Since then Foucault has given American poetry some of its most vital lines and his musical searchings have become touchstones of density and durability. On this new record—his most poignant, honest, even scathing—his cry is a belt of pure blue Wisconsin lake ice with a back of December sunlight angling through bare limbed birches.” - Chris Dombrowski (from the liner notes to SALT AS WOLVES)

Caitlin Canty: Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930's Recording King guitar. Her latest record Reckless Skyline features an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk. Produced by Jeffrey Foucault, her breakout record has garnered glowing praise from NPR, The Telegraph and Philadelphia Inquirer, among others.

Over the course of 15 years and seven full-length albums, Blitzen Trapper has crafted one of the more compelling and varied catalogs in contemporary rock and roll. Indeed, singer and guitarist Eric Earley, who is also the Portland, Oregon-based band's primary songwriter, is possessed of a musical and lyrical sensibility that is remarkably deep and wide; big ideas and universal emotions are wrung from the seemingly plainspoken details of small-screen and often highly personal stories, and set to music that reaches way, way back to old-timey folk and bluegrass, travels through everything from country, psychedelia and soul to prog, garage and metal, indulges gloriously in the classic rock of the 70s and 80s, and makes occasional side trips into hip-hop, skewed pop and noisey freakouts.
