Hot Buttered Rum


The Miners Foundry Cultural Center and Outside Inn have teamed up to offer a Midweek Getaway to two lucky music lovers.  Who wants to see Hot Buttered Rum and the Achilles Wheel Trio?  Leave a comment below about what you love most about the Miners Foundry below and be entered to win 2 tickets to the Wednesday, April 20th show, plus a one-night stay at the Outside Inn.

With musical influences ranging from blues, rock, and jazz to Celtic and old-time string band music from the Appalachians, the Bay Area’s Hot Buttered Rum (HBR) could almost be termed bluegrass fusion.  The band members themselves call it “high altitude California bluegrass.”

They’ve graced the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country including Telluride, Newport, Bonnaroo, Strawberry, Hardly Strictly, Kate Wolf, Horning’s Hideout, Merlefest and High Sierra, among others, and now HBR will perform at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center on Wednesday, April 20th, doors open at 8pm.

Opening the show is The Achilles Wheel Trio featuring Paul Kamm, Shelby Snow, and Jonny Mojo, singer/songwriters and front men of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel. As a 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.

Winner will be announced on Monday, April 18th, gift certificate for Outside Inn valid on Wednesday, April 20th only.  *Edited to say the winner is Ronda Cowan.

    As a relative newbie to the area ( 3 years ), I have regularly found the Miners Foundry to the be the hub, the heartbeat, the epicenter, to all things cultural in the area. From the music, to the theme-rich fairs, to the education and events regarding local causes and history, the Miners Foundry is where IT”S at. I love living here and participating in local events.

    The Miners Foundry is 1 of THE biggest delights in our county. I’ve celebrated many occasions with friends & family there. I love dancing the night away. I joined in with many others to fund the wonderful dance floor & joined in the inaugural dance to Achilles Wheel, when it was done! I’ve seen tributes to John Muir, plays, dances, craft fairs, psychic fairs & my favorite music played right in the heart of Nevada City!!! 🙂

    I love the Miners Foundry for all its rich history that has taken place in this amazing building. From is old cobweb encrusted wooden beams, to its delicate stone work. Many hands have built & rebuilt this inspiring space for many to enjoy. Our very own KVMR started here in 1974 to become today, our very own non commercial radio powerhouse. And with out the American Victorian museum, the world may never have had the Wee Willie Juicer! Love the Foundry.

    I have been going to see music at the Miners Foundry since I could walk and dance. I was Born and raised with the love of music, and the joy of being apart of a small community. Nestled comfortably inside the heart of our Northern California paradise, resides a unique vibration and energy. Those that can hear the call and feel the pulling gather together inside of this beautiful location to share a night you’ll never forget….
    ~Be You, Be true,
    And Dance~

    I have to say my favorite thing about the Miner’s Foundry is the physical structure itself. A stone structure has such staying power and so much character.

    Nancy says:

    If those beautiful stone walls could talk the amazing stories of happy events they would tell. Nevada City is blessed to have that little piece of heaven called “Miners Foundry” in it mists. I have been to the foundry so many times for community events, holiday events and many of my friends wedding receptions. The acoustics there are wonderful so I can only imagine listening to Hot Buttered Rum bluegrass would be magical.

    What could be better than Hot Buttered Rum, the Achilles Wheel Trio and a night of slumber at The Outside Inn!? The Miners Foundry is an incredible place to see a show; its intimate, rustic and historic atmosphere can’t be beat for getting into the music and soaking in the Sierra Foothill vibes. This is going to be an awesome night!
