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.
