Carol McComb & Kathleen Larisch: Kathy & Carol's unique sense of harmony is remarkable for its use of shifting intervals, haunting dissonances, counterpoint, and unisons. Their a cappella songs send shivers down the spine. Carol's original songs have timeless appeal. Their renditions of Carter Family songs are unique, yet they have a ring of authenticity b ecause Kathy & Carol have deep roots in traditional American and British Isles music. Roots music is in their bones. www.carolmccomb.com/kathycarol.htm

Shamrocks & Poison Oak : Dave McCort, Jerry McMillan, Michael Simpson and Lee Anne Welch, of Sidesaddle - Friends since high school each member has been playing all their adult lives in diverse styles and now they are joining together to celebrate their love of Celtic music with fiddles, guitar, mandolin and Irish pipes for the Play It Fast for Cheetahs concert.

Shelley Phillips & Michael Glick: Shelley has a Masters of Music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Shelley Phillips (folk harp, oboe and cor anglé, and native flutes) and her husband Barry (cello) are much in demand as a studio and pick-up musicians for the professional folk music crowd in America, Ireland and the UK. For this special event she is putting together a special ensemble.

It is simple, really. With James Lee you get great songs, great guitar playing, great voice and a gifted comedian as well. You are in for a very entertaining evening.” Village Voice

If there ever was an example of the ten thousand hour theory, it's James Lee Stanley. He has been recording, composing and performing for decades and the expertise shows. All of his previous recordings from duet releases with Peter Tork, Cliff Eberhardt, Michael Smith, or John Batdorf  to the celebrated All Wood series to his solo work have been met with incredible accolades and regard and The Apocaloptimist continues the momentum. If you have never been exposed to the work of James Lee Stanley, The Apocaloptimist is a wonderful doorway into the world of one of the world's best kept secrets —the music of James Lee Stanley. http://jamesleestanley.com

Joshua Lowe and The Juncos are a moveable feast – Joshua is a constant , but The Juncos are different on different nights. This time they will be Patti Maxine on lap steel and Mason Hutchinson on double bass, with Joshua taking the lead vocals and playing guitar and banjo. He loves playing with Patti and says his voice and songs blend perfectly with her haunting lap steel. “Post Modern Americana Roots” music is what Joshua calls his material, steeped in several traditions; folk, blues, old-time and country.


The Juncos have played twice before in the Ugly Mug series and we are very pleased to welcome them back again.

Monica Pasqual & The Handsome Brunettes
Blame Sally's Monica Pasqual and Pam Delgado with cellist extraordinaire Josh McClain
Sunday, March 29th,2pm $10/$10
Under 21 With Parent

FC Cosponsored Show with Snazzy Productions

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

After 13 years of playing, recording and touring, the band Blame Sally decided it might be time to take a bit of a rest. The last thing that pianist and songwriter Monica Pasqual expected was to find herself spearheading a new project, but then she met a young cellist named Josh McClain and found the prospect somewhat irresistible. A recent transplant from the greater Chicago area, Josh McClain "wields his cello like a post-impressionists brush". Together Pasqual and McClain create a big, emotionally complex sound, rich in dynamics and moving easily from quiet fragility to unrestrained propulsion. Monica's lyrics run the gambit from intense introspection to incisive social commentary, from lush romanticism to clear-eyed scrutiny. Blame Sally's fiery percussionist, Pam Delgado, rounds the sound out adding rhythm, color and gorgeous harmonies.  Pasqual is the winner of 6 Emmy Awards and several Independent Music Awards. She conducts creative writing and songwriting workshops and does one on one creative mentoring with songwriters at all levels. Monica Pasqual and the Handsome Brunettes are currently recording a new album funded through their successful Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign. They expect to release the album in the first half of 2015. http://monicapasqual.com and http://blamesally.com
