They have enjoyed sharing their mutual passion for photography, and are looking forward to this dual-artist show. With their individual and distinct interests and style, the show will be eclectic, colorful, beautiful and balanced!

Kathy Clarke, aka “Lady Kate​” ladykatesphotography.com  
    After over 20 years as a barber in Atascadero, California, Kathy semi-retired in 2003 to spend more time pursuing her lifelong passion for photography. She also began practicing another of her interests: stacking rocks. For years, between running her barber shop and growing her primary business, Lady Kate’s Photography, Kathy has been honing her rock-balancing craft. One of her favorite activities is participating as a guest artist at rock balancing festivals. Yes, there really are such events! Some of them include Balanced Art World International–Canada,  Llano Earth Art Festival (Texas),  Back West Celebration of Stone Balancing (Flagstaff, Arizona),  Balanced Art World International–Italy.  Further, she teaches the skill to groups and individuals through demonstrations and workshops. Kathy has received numerous awards for her alluring and eclectic photography and has been featured in a wide variety of publications. In December 2016, Kathy released her first book, in collaboration with her daughter Kamryn Clarke and international best-selling author Tom Youngholm.  ​“Whispers of Wonder; A Journey of Beauty and Balance” is an enchanting coffee table book of photographs and inspirational writings that will delight your eyes as it stirs your heart and soul. 

Rick Evans of “Another Rick Evans Photo” anotherrickevansphoto.smugmug.com   ​Rick was raised in and happily remains a resident of Atascadero, CA. His interest in photography began in high school and has evolved into a part-time business.  His specialties include weddings, senior portraits, families, and working as a freelance photographer shooting local events. He also loves being outdoors and really enjoys photographing beautiful scenes in nature.      Rick’s photographs have been the “cover” of several local magazines, used in numerous newspaper articles and many have been the featured photo during the weather news on a local TV station.   Rick loves sharing his photos with the world!     


The Artist Reception for Kathy and Rick on July 8 will also be a Book Signing event, featuring the book and a guest appearance by writer Kamryn Clarke. Get a glimpse of the book at whispersofwonderwow.com

SLOFOLKS- FEUFOLLET
SLOFOLKS- FEUFOLLET

Join us and Slofolks for a summer evening outdoor concert presenting Feufollet. 

There will be food available to purchase from Thomas Hill Organics

Doors open at 6:00 

Concert starts at 7:00 

Get your tickets here 

Feufollet is Americana at it’s finest— reverential but wholly nonconformists. The young and vibrant Southwest Louisiana band takes Cajun, honky-tonk, and string-band music as their starting point, and keeps an open mind about where their song craft will lead them. On Two Universes, their first studio album in over five years, Feufollet proves their Cajun roots don’t define them as much as propel them forward; whispers of the swamp and its time-honored waltzes trigger a modern and broad musical imagination, one that finds equal expression in blues, old-time, country ballads, rock’n’roll, whatever, all for the sake of the song.

SLO Folks Presents
Peppino D'Agostino

Peppino’s Acoustic Poetica is a magical, enlightening learning experience that will be a treat for your eyes and ears and inspire your imagination and creative prowess.

Doors for this indoor show open at 6:30 PM Show starts at 7:30 PM

GET YOUR TICKETS NOW

A young Sicilian artist left Italy over 30 years ago, with the dream of “playing with the greatest guitarists”.  Peppino has achieved his dream and he’s now firmly planted in the “who’s who” of the guitar world.

Peppino D’Agostino emerged on the acoustic guitar scene in the early 80’s as a leading member of the second wave of the great fingerstylists that helped redefine the instrument in the ’90s. His remarkable technique, penchant for open tunings, and percussive effects are the basis of his unique compositional style which has been inspiring musicians and audiences alike for decades. Add to that his natural warmth, playfulness, and broad musical tastes and you have the recipe for what he calls “minestrone music”. His virtuosity and his emotional charge have also had a significant influence on the younger generation of fingerstyle guitarists. D’Agostino continues to evolve and grow in ways that would have been hard to predict when he first showcased his melodic yet emotionally intense style on the recordings Acoustic Spirit, Close to the Heart, and Every Step of the Way which was named one of the top three acoustic guitar albums of all time by Acoustic Guitar magazine readers.

D’Agostino has performed in more than 30 countries, at prestigious international festivals and has played in some of the world’s most important theaters. He has shared the stage with Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, Laurindo Almeida, Sergio Assad, Larry Carlton, and Eric Johnson, to name a few. His solo recordings include high quality labels such as Favored Nations, Mesa / Bluemoon, and Acoustic Music Records. Recognized as “the guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine and described as “a giant of the acoustic guitar” by the San Diego Reader, D’Agostino was voted Best Acoustic Guitarist by readers of Guitar Player magazine. An active member of the Pacific Guitar Ensemble, Peppino has collaborated and recorded with the classical guitarist David Tanenbaum (chair of the classical guitar at the Conservatory of San Francisco), Jeff Campitelli (considered one of the 100 greatest drummers of all time by Rolling Stone magazine) and the legendary Paraguayan harpist and violinist Carlos Reyes, among many others.  D’Agostino’s composition “Stammi Vicino,” written with electric guitarist Stef Burns and Italian rock star Vasco Rossi, reached number one in the iTunes rock charts in Italy.

Authentic and excellence are the words most often used to describe Gypsy Soul and their music. The duo's multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of Roots, Pop, Blues and Jazz.  Their wistful story began in Scotland when Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/US) made a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art.
