A San Francisco Bay Area native, Michael McNevin started his career with a six-month stint in New York City, cutting his troubadour teeth in the subways and streets of Greenwich Village. Now a veteran of the folk scene, Michael has logged close to 20 years of concerts across the U.S., and he's been a main-stager at some of the bigger music festivals around, including the Strawberry, Kerrville, High Sierra, and Philadelphia music festivals. He's been billed in clubs and halls with the likes of Johnny Cash, Shawn Colvin, Donovan, Richie Havens, Christine Lavin, Utah Phillips, and 100s of others on the songwriter circuit. He has a seasoned voice, is an accomplished steel string guitarist, and has a vivid and personal brand of storytelling. He is a past winner of the Kerrville New-folk Award in Texas, a 6-time winner of the West Coast Songwriters Association "Song Of The Year" ('91, '92, '97, '98, '05, '09), and was chosen by Performing Songwriter Magazine as a Top 12 "DIY Artist Of The Year.  www.MichaelMcNevin.com 

Fans describe Tami Mulcahy’s voice as "simply beautiful". It draws you in and the words take over. From the playful Water Me Down to the moving war tribute Lucky Forward, her new CD is story telling at it's best. Recorded in part with Grammy winning producer Enrique Gonzalez Muller, careful attention was given to organic flavorings in the vein of David Gray and Shawn Colvin. Tami is now back on the performance trail sharing her music. Her performance style has been called "personal and authentic". Wearing multiple hats in the music area, Tami also mentors young writers, teaches, is a past president of the West Coast Songwriters and recently started the South Bay House Concert meet up to foster growth of small venue music in the San Jose area. www.TamiMulcahy.com 

In this show, Tami and Michael will each do a short set, and then finish with a set swapping back and forth and accompanying each other. Both have played in this series before and Michael has played for Fiddling Cricket many times in the past

Kacey Jones is an American singer-songwriter, producer and humorist. http://www.kaceyjones.com

"Kacey Jones, known for her comedy albums and hanging out with Garrison Keillor at Lake Wobegon, breaks your heart on this exquisite disc ("Kacey Jones Sings Mickey Newbury"). The blues have never been bluer, or more eloquent, and her seen-it-all voice is the perfect match for Newbury's poignant world view. Jones honors a singular talent as only another singular talent could." -David Wiegand SF Chronicle.

"There's a long tradition of female musician-humorists and Kacey Jones fits right in. Bottom line: here's one Kacey who hasn't struck out." -Ralph Novak, People Magazine

Phil Lee: former Flying Burrito Brother's Sahanachie records' release is The Mighty King of Love . Lee's music is the distillation of about 30 years' worth of playing in juke joints and bars from one end of the country to the other. His songwriting is uncommonly witty and as direct as a kick in the butt. http://www.reverbnation.com/phillee

Dorian Michael : blues and folk, jazz and rock & roll guitar ace.http://dorianmichael.com

Rosie Flores
Texas Rockabilly Legend Whips Up the Best of Rock and Roll, Honky Tonk and Rockabilly

Thursday, July 24th, 7.30pm $10/$10
<21 w/parent

FC and Snazzy Productions Cosponsored Show
AT DON QUIXOTES MUSIC HALL

6275 Highway 9 in Downtown Felton, Reservations online or call 831-603-2294

Rosie Flores whips the best of rock and roll, honky tonk, early rockabilly, blues and jazz with the traditional sounds of her roots in San Antonio, TX. She took flight in Southern California, and has been a major figure in the Los Angeles, Austin, TX and Nashville music scenes – as well as Europe and Japan. Rosie's reputation as a high-octane rockabilly and country star is well established, and recent accolades have only made her musical bouquet fuller. June 2008 found Rosie onstage at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, accepting the prestigious Peabody Award for her narration of the 10-hour documentary radio show on the history of Rockabilly, Whole Lotta Shakin, produced by Lex Gillespie. Damn good songwriter, award-winning guitar player, and break yer heartstrings singer. Critical raves from prestigious publications such as the Los Angeles Times and Guitar Player magazine, an LA Weekly Music Award for Best Rockabilly Swing Artist, a 2007 cover story in the Austin Chronicle, and the proclamation of Rosie Flores Day in August 2006 by Austin Mayor Will Wynn was topped off by an induction into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 2007. She was recently voted as one of the "Top 75 Greatest Female Guitarists of All Time" by Venuszine. http://rosieflores.com
