Ryanhood in Concert

In the 1970s, some folksingers, including Bob Dylan, began to “plug-in” and amp up like the rockers. Now, pop music is coming full circle as many rock ‘n’ rollers un-plug. For instance, the two former rockers of Ryanhood, Ryan Green and Cameron Hood, were named ‘Best Group/duo in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s). They will demonstrate this blending of musical genres when they return to the stage at Fiddlers Crossing on February 23. 
To see videos and hear samples go to ryanhood.com or fiddlerscrossing.com.
Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, at Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town, and Lucky’s Barbershop, or online through Fiddlerscrossing.com. Tickets to the concert are $20, and as always, coffee and goodies are included. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 
On the horizon: Golden Bough, Acoustic Eidolon, The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

Golden Bough in Concert at the BeeKay

It’s been years since the popular Celtic-music based band, Golden Bough has made it back to Tehachapi. Finally, the long wait is almost over. On Friday, March 2, Fiddlers Crossing will present the trio in concert at the BeeKay Theatre at 7pm.
Golden Bough is well acquainted with Tehachapi, having played at the Wind Fair, Concerts in the Park and special fund-raising events in years past. The band and Fiddlers Crossing have been trying to forge a path together for them to come back to Tehachapi for the last few years, but schedules and “life” always got in the way. This year is finally the Golden Year!
This trio of superb musicians includes Margie Butler playing harp, bodhran and whistle (not all at the same time!), husband Paul Espinoza on guitar, octave-mandolin and accordion, and Kathy Sierra on violin and viola. All three sing, and their concerts include many of their own compositions. Margie and Paul started as a duo 37 years ago playing Celtic music from many nations as well as American folk music. They have been joined over the years by others, mostly fiddlers. Sierra joined them in 2001. Some in Tehachapi might remember their performance at Cummings Valley School ten or more years ago.
Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional folk music and captivates listeners with the uniqueness of their original compositions. With songs and instrumental pieces ranging from ballads to lively jigs, reels and sing-alongs, Golden Bough provides an atmosphere in which the listener can enjoy unique entertainment within and beyond the boundaries of traditional folk music. Their music is well received and enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
Join Fiddlers Crossing for a Golden evening at the BeeKay March 2.
For more information and to hear samples of Golden Bough go to www.fiddlerscrossing.com and www.goldenboughmusic.com.
Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town, Lucky’s Barbershop, online at Fiddlerscrossing.com or with a credit card by calling 661-823-9994.
