SOUTHERN PACIFIC SESSIONS 2019
We are thrilled to welcome back Southern Pacific Sessions for another fabulous year of music. 2019 brings the return of Richie + Rosie and SPS debut of Black Miller and Old Fashioned Aces and Skillet Licorice! Find out more below and join us!
Blake Miller & the Old Fashioned Aces are breathing new life into an old sound. It’s traditional Cajun music in a traditional setting, but more than that, it’s a powerhouse trio having fun. Whether they appear as an acoustic trio or a full electric band, finer musicians playing Cajun music cannot be found. In a world where it seems everyone is continually stretching the boundaries of Louisiana French music, the Aces nest comfortably inside the well worn tracks of Cajun Music. From old fiddle tunes, to classic dance floor packers, to bilingual country classics, their music is comfort food for the Cajun music fan.
Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton return for their second Southern Pacific Session! If you saw them last year, you know just how special their unique styling of banjo and fiddle is. Bring a friend who missed them last time and spread the love!
Skillet Licorice is the latest project from San Francisco Bay Area roots-music luminaries Elise Engelberg and Matt Knoth. Whether they’re playing hot fiddle breakdowns, slinky blues, sparkling banjo breaks, ragtime or dreamy waltzes, the band displays an impressive command of styles and techniques that comes from deep study and loving dedication to America’s folk traditions. Skillet Licorice is hot, sweet, and just a bit greasy!
