Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, June 23, 2010 13B ARTS a d ENTERTAINMENT Fifth annual 'A Few Brews and A Banjo' this Sat., June 7 6 Picture a sunny summer af- ternoon spent sitting among friends alongside the north fork of the Feather River un- der cottonwood trees, sipping on a tasty microbrewed beer with a tri-tip sandwich, watch- ing children dance and play, and enjoying bluegrass influ- enced music and harmonies. Now imagine that you're helping to raise money that will be donated to the local high school music and drama programs. Well, it's more than your imagination: make it to the fifth annual A Few Brews and A Banjo, set for Saturday, June 26, at 2 p.m. in the Chester Park. Sponsored by the Lake A1- manor Community Founda: tion in partnership with Plumas Arts, this event is an unsolicited fundraiser for the music and drama programs at Chester High School. You can enjoy live music and sample fine microbrews until 6 p.m. Tickets for brew glasses and wristbands will cost $20 and will be available at the park on the day of the event to those 21 years old and up. The Elks Club of Chester will provide food and non-alcoholic drinks. The live music is free to the public. Featured musical groups are Mossy Creek and Hank and Shaidri Alrich with Doug Harman. Armadillo Records record- ing artists Hank and Shaidri Alrich, with trio mate Doug Harman, will make their first appearance in Plumas County since the release of their de- but CD in December 2009. Hank and Shaidri are a fa- ther-and-daughter duo that have been playing and singing together for almost 25 years. Hank plays guitar, mandolin and five-string ban- jo, and Shaidri plays guitar and fiddle. Doug plays cello. Support local arts! Like many good causes, this year Plumas Art will have trouble making ends meet at fiscal year end. So, it has come up with a creative way to en- tice members and others into a tax-deductible donation with potential benefits in the Hot Summer Fun prize drawing. Local businesses and event producers have donated more than 15 prizes, including tick- ets to some of the best events and places all around Plumas County. Tickets can be purchased at Plumas Arts Gallery in Quin- cy, call 283-3402 or go online at the Plumas Arts Shop,, to charge tickets before noon June 24.

They combine folk, blue- grass, Americana, old country and original into a roots mu- sic package that is both tradi- tional and contemporary, with a sound that appeals to many people across genres and generations. Their debut CD, "Carry Me Home," was produced by Hank and recorded head-on live without headphones or overdubs at Cedar Crdek Recording in Austin, Texas in November 2009. Fred Rem- mert, whose credits include Eliza Gilkyson, the Dixie Chicks, Sam Baker, Slaid Cleaves, Jimmy LaFave and many others, engineered the album.

Mossy Creek, a three-time CAMMIE award winner and 2009 CN&R Best Local Act, features original material with extremely tight three-, four- and five-part harmonies and wonderfully :omplex mu- sical arrangements Mossy Creek has added two new members. Beth Knight is a young vocalist with tremen- dous range and a wonderful ability to convey powerful emotion with her rich voice. Beth comes from a very musi- cal family and has a back- ground in theater. She and her sisters perform locally on a regular basis Chris Wenger is a versatile and talented guitar player. Chris has a MFA in guitar performance. He regularly performs styles ranging from acoustic Americana to rock, jazz, classical and beyond. With all of his guitar talents it is surprising to hear him say that his passion is vocal harmony. Chris has a tenor voice which blends beautiful- ly with the rest of the band. Mossy Creek continues to feature the virtuosic talents of teen national fiddle champion Christine Hogan and the world-class harmonica of Bob Littell. Talented multi-instrumen- talists, singers, Songwriters and founding members Pat Ha- ley (banjo, Dobro and guitar) and Kim Gimbal (mandolin and guitar) along with Matt Christensen on the bass keep Mossy Creek in full swing.
