Grammy® Award winning and Juno-nominated artist John Reischman is “one of the world's undisputed masters of the mandolin” according to Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine. Capable of swinging between re-inventions of traditional old-time, bluegrass, and compelling original tunes, Reischman is renowned for his impeccable tone and taste. In the late 1970’s, he helped define the New Acoustic movement as an original member of the Tony Rice Unit, recording several influential albums on Rounder Records.LEARN MORE
San Francisco’s Blame Sally comes to West Marin for an evening of passionate, potent folk-pop songs new and old, with a spotlight on tunes from their fifth CD, Speeding Ticket and a Valentine. Emotionally charged, highly melodic, and irresistibly compelling, the powerhouse quartet—individually, Pam Delgado, Renee Harcourt, Jeri Jones, and Monica Pasqual—makes music with a truly distinctive sound.
All four women are exceptional songwriters, instrumentalists, and vocalists, and in performance they switch off lead vocals and trade instruments, creating music marked by funky, melodic rhythms, skilled instrumentation, and beautiful, intricate harmonies. Over the near-decade since they formed their band, Blame Sally has gained an ever-growing following that stretches far beyond their home turf, filling concert halls in Boston, Philadelphia, and across the pond in Europe. Come find out why!LEARN MORE
Point Reyes Books presents States of Grace, a documentary that chronicles the journey of revered physician Dr. Grace Dammann and her family following her survival of a head-on collision on the Golden Gate Bridge. Dr. Dammann founded one of the first HIV/AIDS clinics for poor people in San Francisco and was honored by the Dalai Lama with an Unsung Heroes of Compassion award in 2005. Dr. Damman and filmmakers Helen S. Cohen and Mark Lipman will be present to answer questions. "A poignant, universal saga. States of Grace achieves a relevance and a power that reaches well beyond its subjects." –Michael Fox, KQED Arts. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Point Reyes Books or at the door.LEARN MORE
Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century.
Since its beginning in 1997, each of Tin Hat’s six recordings has been regarded by listeners and fellow musicians as a benchmark in the ongoing exploration of vibrant new pathways in acoustic music. Concurrently, their captivating live performances throughout the United States and Europe have surprised and delighted audiences with well-honed compositions and the joy of spontaneous musical discovery. Hailed for “interweaving Old World Europe with post-modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves” (The New York Press), the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device. As the New York Times notes, “it’s solid, appealing and fresh.”
