Dear music friends ~
Join us WED APRIL 12 for an evening with Scottish folk noir balladeer RACHEL SERMANNI,
whose music has the flesh of Folk but, if you were to cut the skin, you’d find it pumped with contemporary, genre blended blood.
Born under a rainbow, in Raigmore hospital in the Scottish Highlands, on the 7th November ’91, Rachel Sermanni has grown into a writer, musician and artist. All of her creations preserve the pure, mystical, symbolic nature of that beam of fragmented light that shone, 24 sun-spun years ago.
She has release a variety of recordings : (2011) her first EP, The Bothy Sessions, recorded quite spontaneously, deep in a Highland forest with 10 friends; Studio EP Black Currants; Debut Album, Under Mountains in Sept 2012 (Produced by Ian Grimble -- Travis, Manic Street Preachers, Texas -- and recorded at Watercolour Studios nestled among big, purple hills in the West Highlands.) After 4 years of touring, she completed The BoatShed Sessions, recorded in the same raw element and ethos of the Bothy Sessions; Everything Changes, produced by Alex Newport (Bloc Party, City and Colour, Death Cab for Cutie) in New York City; and ‘Live in Dawson City’, recorded during a festival in the Yukon, (early 2014) .
Tied to The Moon is Rachel’s sophomore studio album, released in July 2015 to wide spread critical acclaim. The songs follow the theme of being ‘Like a Moth’; of being in darkness but drawn to the flame. To hear it is to take a walk in the moonlight.
All of Rachel Sermanni’s records have been released on Middle of Nowhere Recordings, a label she helped create with Robert Hicks who lives in beautiful Ullapool in the North West. MONrecordings is now an established label with a growing roster of artists.
* Come on out for an evening of delicious food, music, and visiting with friends *

April 14, 2017 (FRI) – The Good Time Travelers – RESERVE SEATS – ( thegoodtimetravelers.com ) – A high voice, smoky and soulful; a low voice, rich with bravado. Pete Kartsounes and Michael Kirkpatrick come together as The Good Time Travelers. United by a passion for performing, this songwriting and pickin’ duo presents original songs about ‘the journey.’ It’s a simple endeavor: a guitar, a mandolin and two microphones-traveling light, this band fills up your heart, but barely fills a Subaru. Both gentlemen have been leading bands around the west for some time and found each other at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. At their first campground session, it became clear to all who witnessed the magic of these two troubadours that this was more than just another Town Park jam. In fact, Michael won the prestigious Telluride Troubadour Competition in 2014 and Pete had taken an honorable first runner up in 2011 and 2013.
