We can’t wait to have singer, songwriter and musician Lindsay Lou back, and see what she’s up to! She’s a boundary pusher, a heart whisperer, and she’s calling on us all at Spring Strawberry, Thursday evening at 7:30pm. Hear and learn more: https://strawberrymusic.com/performers/lindsay-lou/
Strawberry Spotlight – Evie Ladin Band A deeply evocative banjo player, clever songwriter and rhythmic dancer, with a powerful voice that draws you in – the SF Chronicle calls Evie Ladin “a natural entertainer with a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve.”
We love this video of Evie playing her tune Glory, solo, at Ear Trumpet Labs this year. And to add heaven to grace — the Evie Ladin Band, with Keith Terry on bass, percussion, body music, and vocals, and Erik Pearson guitar, bass, banjo, and vocals, will be performing at Spring Strawberry, main stage, Sunday, at 12:15pm. Glory, wind in my hair, glory, sun at my heels! Come, go with me. https://strawberrymusic.com/performers/evie-ladin-band-w-keith-terry-erik-pearson/
As Watkins Family Hour’s first project since a self-titled debut album in 2015, brother sister is the latest, duo-centric undertaking by the accomplished siblings, Sean Watkins and Sara Watkins.
The busy Los Angeles-based musicians carved out time to write with each other, often during the nap-time of Sara’s toddler. Their schedule was limited for the studio, too, as Sean explains, “We didn’t have that much time and that made it fun and exciting. It was just us, in one room, facing each other with some really great mics, often playing and singing at the same time, trying to capture what Sara and I do in a real way.”

Country-folk singer-songwriter Rita Hosking is a longtime member of the Strawberry family, as a camper, volunteer, main-stage performer, emcee, and occasionally…cousin of Rhonda? We’ve noticed that sometimes, in place of Rita at Sunday’s Revival, we are treated to her horn-rimmed glassed, pantyhosed, lipstick poppin’ cousin, along with her equally snappily-dressed band, known as Rhonda Hosking and The Original Sinners! Camper Bruce Hayden captured this shot of them in 2017. Will we spot them at this Revival?? Stay tuned, and don’t you dare miss Rita’s actual-factual set of soul-stirring, Northern California folk on Friday at 12:15pm!
