T Sisters: Folk at heart, the T Sisters also draw heavily on elements of country, gospel, R&B, and fellow sibling bands like The Andrews Sisters and The Beach Boys. For Kindred Lines, produced by Laurie Lewis the T Sisters enlisted a cadre of A-List musicians like Todd Phillips, Linda Tillery and Mike Marshall.The experience of singing in harmony sans instruments–that ability to hear and dig in to the way our voices resonate together–is particularly powerful for us.” Like the sirens of old, the harmonies of the T Sisters draw the listener ever closer, hinting at a deeper, more dangerous beauty. http://www.tsisters.com

Dave Holodiloff’s recent appearance on KPIG’s live music show “Please Stand By” knocked it out of the park and instantly got our attention. David artfully, creatively, stunningly explores the acoustic frontiers of the mandolin. Dave has made a name for himself both as a performer at festivals and concert venues and as an acoustic event entertainment specialist. His dynamic musical repertoire includes Jazz Standards, Bluegrass Traditionals, Sultry Sambas, Celtic Classics, Gypsy Swing, Latin Rhythms, and much more. http://www.daveholodiloff.com

Guitarist Mark Lemaire and vocalist Cindy van Empel met in 2008 and performed for us in 2011 as Mark Lemaire and Twilight. Now married and fresh off a tour of the UK, we welcome them back to the Wednesday Acoustic series. Mark's virtuoso solo guitar work shines on its own, but when coupled his voice, with the ethereal quality of Cindy's vocals, and the stellar harmonies between them, the result can be mesmerizing.

Mark was an up and coming performer about 30 years ago, sharing the stage with the likes of Maria Muldaur and Tracy Chapman, but tendonitis diverted him into a recording engineering career. Only recently in the last few years has he returned to live performance. Cindy has been singing in bands since high school and once toured Europe with the group, Madrigals, performing music from the Renaissance and Middle Ages. www.marklemaire.com

"…performing with Cindy van Empel the blend of voices adds a perfect exclamation point to Mark's virtuoso guitar playing." - John Sollenger, Pasadena Weekly



Druha Trava
Famed on Both Sides of the Atlantic for its "Czechgrass" Fusion of Acoustic, Bluegrass, Folk and Rock

Thursday, October 23rd, 7.30pm $13/$15
<21 w/parent

PRESENTED BY FIDDLING CRICKET CONCERTS
AT DON QUIXOTES MUSIC HALL

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

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. But DT also performs bluegrass standards and covers -- in English and Czech -- of material by songwriters ranging from Mick Jagger to American acoustic veteran Peter Rowan (with whom the group collaborated on a CD, New Freedom Bell, in 1999). http://www.druhatrava.us
