Featured Artist: Kristopher Doe
Kristopher Doe
Featured Artist: Kristopher Doe

Kristopher Doe is a Southern California born and raised artist who grew up in the artistically rich San Gabriel valley city of Pasadena, home to many of the California impressionist,  plein air painters of the early 20th century. 

This artistic heritage was instilled at a young age and has served as an inspiration in his pursuit of his own observations of the magnificent natural environment of our Golden State and beyond. Kris has also been tremendously inspired by the pop and music culture that emerged in the 1960’s and takes particular interest in capturing and recording our rapidly disappearing Americana of yesteryear.

A graduate of Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, Kris now resides on the central coast where he pursues his painting as well as conducting various art courses at Cuesta and Allan Hancock colleges.

Quickly gaining recognition as one of Irish music’s new “super-groups”, RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music, since their formation in 2008.  Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of bluegrass, flamenco, blues, jazz, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music.

The group has been honoured internationally, winning Top Group and Top Traditional Group in the Irish Music Awards and an Independent Music Award for Best World/Traditional Song.
 
Timeless and flawless…” – Jim Allford, PA Music Scene

Seeking to preserve and continue a traditional culture in a modern age, RUNA creates the backbone of its signature roots sound from the musical and geographical diversity of its individually established band members.  Their strive for excellence and creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk music, earning them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.

“Best of all, RUNA sounds like no one else.” – Travis Rogers, Jr., Music Life and Times

Members of RUNA have played with Solas, Riverdance, Slide, Clannad, Fiddlers’ Bid, Moya Brennan, Eileen Ivers, Hazel O’Conner, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Barcó, Téada, Jonathan Edwards, and the Guy Mendilow Band.

RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Dave Curley of Galway on mandolin, vocals, bodhrán, and step-dancing, and Maggie Estes of Kentucky on the fiddle.

Receiving lavish praise on both sides of the Atlantic, RUNA recently released their fourth album, “Current Affairs”, a cross-pollination of RUNA’s signature roots sound with the overtones of Appalachia and Americana.  Hailed byMarcene Bronson, (The Celtic Crier) as “an incredible masterpiece”, “Current Affairs” has been nominated in the 2014 Irish Music Awards for “Best New Irish CD” and in the 2015 Independent Music Awards for “Best Bluegrass Song” (Ain’t No Grave) and Best World/Traditional Song (False Knight Upon the Road).

“Celtic music at its very best!” – Gene Shay, co-founder of the Philadelphia Folk Festival; WXPN-FM

Featured Artist: Joe Schwartz
Featured Artist: Joe Schwartz

Joe Schwartz, documentary photographer, was born in Brooklyn, New York in1913 and passed away, a local resident in Atascadero, in 2013. The City of Atascadero’s Centennial celebration included and honored Joe Schwartz’s centennial year just one month prior to his death.

Joe’s black and white street photography depicts ordinary people, predominately children in interracial interactions, getting along. Joe’s mantra was, “We Can All Get Along,” thus the title of this exhibit.

One of the important aspects of his photography was that he focused on civil rights issues long before the active civil rights era. Joe had the compassion and concern, even as a young man, for the social issues of the time (1930s - 1940s in New York and 1950s - 1980s in California.) His camera lens was the means in which he expressed this concern for others and the injustices of society, as indicated by the title of his photo book for sale here, “Folk Photography, Poems I’ve Never Written.” His photographs were his poems to humanity.

He was a member of the legendary Photo League of New York where he was mentored by some of the great photographers of his time. He was also a Combat Photographer during WWII in Iwo Jima.

The newest Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall exhibits a selection of Joe’s works on their walls. His legacy will be shared with many.

Rob & Trey
SLOFolks Presents
Rob & Trey

Doors open at 6:30pm, show starts at 7:30

Indoor show.

This unique collaborative effort between two uniquely gifted musicians is bound to be a revelation to traditional music fans on several counts. Rob Ickes is a longtime, well-established instrumental giant, and Trey Hensley is newly arrived in Music City, bursting with talent both as a vocalist and guitarist. Their new album, Before the Sun Goes Down, is slated for release this winter.

From his powerful yet sympathetic vocal interpretations of traditional and contemporary material to his jaw-dropping instrumental skills on both acoustic and electric guitar and considerable songwriting talents, Trey Hensley is bursting at the seams with freshness and musical excitement. His resonant baritone voice is rich, expressive, and equally at ease with classic bluegrass, traditional country, and original compositions. Raised in Jonesborough, Tennessee, Trey began playing guitar and singing when he was 10 years old. Invited by Marty Stuart and joined from the wings by Earl Scruggs, Trey Hensley landed on the Grand Old Opry when he was only 11. To this day, Marty Stuart remains a fan and booster. Trey has already in his young life played with Johnny and June Carter Cash, Charlie Daniels, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, The Oak Ridge Boys ,and Janie Fricke. He’s appeared on bills with Sara Evans , Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, Randy Owen, Steve Wariner, and Marty Stuart, and has appeared before President George W. Bush, First Lady Laura Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Rob Ickes has been playing bluegrass with his much-decorated band Blue Highway for over twenty years, during which time he has been adjudged Bluegrass Dobro Player Of the year fifteen times. Rob has played on countless sessions, recording with artists such as Merle Haggard, Dierks Bentley, Patty Loveless, and Alison Krauss. He has also helped form a jazz –oriented trio, Three Ring Circle, along with Andy Leftwich and Dave Pomeroy. His most recent album Three Bells is a true dobro summit, collaborating with fellow greats Jerry Douglas and the late Mike Auldridge. He even once received a surprise phone call from admirer, jazz guitar and harmonica master Toots Thielemans! In Before the Sun Goes Down, the listener will have the chance to view Rob Ickes, by now an acknowledged master of the dobro and lap steel guitar, outside of the box.

Rob has been a supporter since he first heard Trey, a happening that came about in an unusual way. He became aware of the young man’s enormous vocal talent when he heard his scratch vocal (suggested by the album’s engineer) on Rob’s band Blue Highway’s album The Game. Wayne Taylor and Tim Stafford of Blue Highway penned the song “My Last Day In The Mine.” The band had initially hoped to have a prominent lead singer outside the band to perform a guest vocal of the song for the album but found themselves falling in love with the youthful Trey’s evocation of the world-weary working man’s fears of leaving the only job he’d ever known. Trey was 22 at the time. Trey’s vocal was used on the completed product and has since received considerable positive notice, as has the entire album. Shortly thereafter, Trey and his wife Amber relocated to Nashville, and Rob has been showing Trey the ropes.
Before the Sun Goes Down promises to be a breath of fresh air on the country music scene today while bringing traditional country and bluegrass music to the forefront. Accompanied by some of the finest, most accomplished musicians in Nashville , Rob and Trey tackle a diverse group of songs, put a fresh spin on some old ones, polish up some more recent hits, and offer up an original from Trey – all the while drawing influence from artists as diverse as Jimmy Martin, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver, Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs, Buddy Emmons, Jimmie Rodgers, and Bob Wills. In addition to Rob, Trey’s sterling vocals are bolstered by a band which includes Aubrey Haynie or Andy Leftwich on fiddle, the ubiquitous (and mighty fine) Nashville acoustic bassist Mike Bub, and drummer John Gardner. Others featured are Jon Randall, Susanne Cox, Dan Tyminski, Shawn Lane, and Ron Block.

Before the Sun Goes Down was recorded mostly live with minimal overdubs, fixes, punch-ins, or even very many takes, and with all the musicians in one room in only a few days of studio time. Rob, the driving force behind the album and the man largely responsible for its creation, says that his favorite albums by the pioneers of the music, the ones that made him want to make music in the first place, were made in the same manner. The spontaneity and sheer joy of creation among a small group of master musicians is palpable in listening to the completed product.

For the month April our featured artist will be Maeve Croghan.  You may recognize her work from the label of our Late Harvest Zinfandel or the backdrop on the stage at Beaverstock!  We are proud to have her work return to the newest release of both our Late Harvest Zinfandel and Orange Muscat in addition to the walls of the Events Gallery. View more work on her website by clicking HERE.

Maeve Croghan paints luminescent, color-filled, nature inspired oil paintings en plein air. After painting directly from nature, she slowly builds the works up in her studio, painting layers of oil paint on in the traditional old master method. During this stage of her process, she draws from her memory and feeling, not using photo references.

Maeve’s paintings are shown nationally and internationally. She has had numerous Museum showings of her work including the Manoogian Art Museum on Mackinac Island, Michigan, the Museum of the Living Artist, San Diego, Ca., the Anchorage Museum of Art, Alaska, Laguna Beach Museum and the Los Gatos Museum, California, Coos Bay, Oregon and Farmington, New Mexico, Museums. Her paintings have been chosen for shows in two museum exhibitions in Japan - the Matsumoto Museum in Matsumoto, and the Salt Road Museum in Omachi, Japan.

Maeve’s paintings are in prominent collections all over the United States and Europe.  They have been included in numerous juried art publications and books, including the ‘American Art Collector’, and ‘Artists of Northern California’. Castoro Cellars of Templeton, California uses her paintings to grace their award winning wine bottle labels.
