“It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
~ NPR’s Morning Edition

2016 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot.  Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable.  Thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations, Hot sold over 1.3 million copies.  In honor of the 20th Anniversary, Squirrel Nut Zippers have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor.

“It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival!” commented band leader Jimbo Mathus.  “The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way.  But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.”

Miners Foundry Presents: Deadbeats @ Miners Foundry Cultural Center
Mar 10 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Deadbeats

March 10 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

 $20 – $25

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present local favorites, Deadbeats with special guests Cassidy Joy & Karen Woerner on Saturday, March 10, 2018.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 8:00 p.m. Standing/dancing show with limited seating available.  Tickets are $20 in Advance and $25 at the Door.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at BriarPatch Food Co-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply to purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office by phone or in person.

Deadbeats formed during the Summer of 1994 on the notion they could pull off some reasonable Grateful Dead covers.  Soon it was apparent the band was on to something, a certain indefinable sound and feel that really captures the essence of a Dead show.  Though band members have come and gone over the years, Tom and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the Deadbeat sound.  The current Deadbeats line up includes Tom Menig, Eric Menig, Rob Kopp, Peter Wilson, Jenn Knapp, Glenn Tucker, and Lucas Weber.

Karen Woerner and Cassidy Joy began singing and playing together as a team back in 2015.

Brought together by their mutual taste in musical genres and shared love of 60’s and 70’s pioneers, they have performed with a variety of backing musicians and guest artists for the past two years in Northern California. Both women starred in the highly regarded showcase “Simple Dreams: The Very Best Of Linda Ronstadt,” which was directed and produced by Joy in November of 2016.

Woerner & Joy continue to captivate audiences with their dynamic and ethereal harmonies, their charming stage manner, and their versatile, multigenre obscure and rare song choices. The girls write their own music, as well as cover a variety of traditional music from Europe and America, and both vintage and modern classics from songwriters in Folk, Classic Rock, Country, Americana, and Bluegrass.

Their intimate, acoustic settings, backstories and chemistry together provide a rare and delightful experience for music lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

St. Patrick’s Day Celebration

March 17 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

 $25 – $30

Keep Smilin’ Promotions and the Miners Foundry are pleased to present a very special St. Patrick’s Day Celebration featuring Wake the Dead with Peter Grant.  Wake the Dead is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the music starts at 8:00 p.m. Standing/dancing show with limited seating available.  General Admission tickets are $25 in Advance and $30 at the Door.  Advance sales close at 4:00 p.m on March 17th.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at BriarPatch Food Co-Op, Tix Dimples, Yabobo, Clock Tower Records, Tribal Weaver, Cherry Records, and Pop Art Placerville.  Ticketing fees do not apply to purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office by phone or in person.

As an expression of cultural joy, you can’t top an Irish wake. And what is awake but a celebration-a toast of appreciation-an expression of love-and a damn good party?  So when seven top Bay Area musicians realized they shared as deep a love for the songs of the Grateful Dead as they did for traditional Celtic tunes, some brand-new music sprang up and started partying.

Wake the Dead is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere. “Sugaree” in waltz time, bracketed by an ancient harp tune and infused with a poignant Celtic longing. “Bertha” thundering out of “China Cat” on a mandolin tidal wave. The eerie lilt of the uilleann pipes, giving a glow to “Bird Song” as if it was always meant to be there. Groove jams to keep the tie-dye swirling. Vocal harmonies that float like clouds. The music takes off, and the band follows, grinning all the way. These aren’t worlds colliding-they’re worlds meshing, coalescing­ creating a whole new world of possibility, and true to the spirits of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts.

Wake the Dead bands together seven of the best-known and most respected players in the west. Harper Maureen Brennan has toured for over 30 years and recorded the acclaimed “Harpistry” collection. Bassist Cindy Browne is equally at home in folk and jazz, touring globally as the musical fusion go-to gal. Singer, fiddler, and octave mandolinist Danny Carnahan is an award-winning songwriter whose original Irish-tinged songs are popular worldwide. Kevin Carr is a musical triple-threat, renowned as a dance fiddler, a pennywhistler, and Irish piper par excellence. Sylvia Herold’s delicious vocal phrasing can also be heard on her solo recordings and her performances with Euphonia. Paul Kotapish is known far and wide for his work with Kevin Burke’s Open House, and for his blazing guitar and mandolin with The Hillbillies From Mars and Euphonia. And Latin percussionist Brian Rice rounds out the band’s groove engine.

Dance to the country and bluegrass sound of Achilles Wheel Trio!

Paul Kamm, Jonny Mojo and Shelby Snow are singer/ songwriters and front men of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel.  As an acoustic trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of country and bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. But it’s the infectious quality of their songwriting that really shines in this setting, and the diverse nature of it as well. Paul and Jonny work off of each other like two sides of the same coin, actively looking for and pushing each other to find the most in whatever song they’re playing.  Shelby on the bass is like a river, both calm and turbulent, that runs through it and ties it all together.

Meet your local farmers!

The event continues to grow and to date has introduced over 10,000 attendees to more than 600 local and regional artists, designers and crafters. Nevada City Craft Fair is committed to presenting the freshest voices of the local hand-made movement, under one roof. Come celebrate with us!
