The Lady CroonersThe Lady Crooners features three sibs, Nadia, Megan, and Joseph Krilanovich, and two of their musician friends, Jason Bratz and Kevin Conness, who play what they call “almost country” – music filled with lovely harmonies, tasty guitar licks, and a touch of twang. They all wear boots, and they all pour plenty of heart and soul into every performance. The website Leicester Bangs compares their second and most recent album, The Surface, to the music of Gillian Welch and the Civil Wars, and praises the “sublime” vocals and the “heady mix of old school country, rootsy folk, and back-porch Americana.”

Kelly McFarlingKelly McFarling also wears boots. She moved from Atlanta to San Francisco in 2007 and quickly became, in the words of the East Bay Express, “one of the Bay Area’s most promising singer-songwriters.” Her albums since then, Distractible Child, Conspire, Others, and Ridgeline, have more than fulfilled that promise. She plays wicked good banjo, and her earthy contralto is rich with deep feeling. She also writes terrific songs with beguiling lyrics. “And the night is wide open / and the bottle is wide open / and our mouths are wide open / and our lives are wide open,” she sings on “Atlanta,” the first song on her debut album. She recently appeared on CNN’s Music Monday feature, where she was described as “a young banjo player and songwriter who will bowl you over with her voice.” Prepare to be bowled.

Tom RhodesTom Rhodes spent his early youth in Texas, started writing songs when he moved to Washington, D.C. as a 14-year-old, and by 16 was a full-time musician playing shows up and down the East Coast. He worked as a session musician in New York City and became part of the burgeoning independent music scene in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, before moving to North Carolina and steeping himself in country music and its offshoots. Now living in the Bay Area, Tom has just released his fourth album, With or Without. “We are all on this pitch black trail through the woods,” he said in a recent interview, and “every time I find a danger on the path I am yelling to anyone around me who can hear to watch out. I’m trying to do my bit to help anyone I can through the woods of life.”

These three fine acts will play "in the round," so expect collaboration, improvisation, and unexpected musical discoveries!
