224 Vintage Way
Novato Ca 94945
Friday Dec. 20th, 8:00PM
Hopmonk NOVATO presents Psychedelic-Folk-Revival singer-songwriter Joanne Rand and folk-rocker Lauren Murphy (Zero, Landsdale Station) on Thursday, December 20, 8:00 PM. Tickets are $10 advance and $12 at the door, available at Hopmonk (230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol, CA). Opening the show will be local chanteuse, Andi White. Both Rand and Murphy will have their bands in tow.
You may have heard the acclaimed and vivacious Lauren Murphy in bands “Zero” or “Landsdale Station” alongside late husband Judge Murphy, or most recently at the Mystic Theatre alongside Steve Kimock. Her music combines high-energy stage interaction with finely crafted songs from the heart. Blending country blues with Bay Area psychedelia, this award winning group reminds us of what made the San Francisco Sound so special to begin with. "The likes of this talent may never pass this way again."(Don Aters). “sweeps you up with a readiness and confidence that takes your feet out from underneath you…a fundamental pleasure” (Dennis Cook/ Jambase Chief Editor).
“Through her songs, [Joanne] Rand traverses love, politics, conservation, spirituality and life with a seasoned-to-perfection voice, that, according to Terry Tempest Williams, ‘Opens the doors of creation’.” (Santa Cruz Weekly). Touring nationally for 25 years, appearing with Bonnie Raitt, Bob Weir, John Hartford, etc., Rand recently released her thirteenth CD, “Stories from the Inside Out,” recorded in Nashville. Writing and playing music since childhood in the Deep South, Rand cut her performance teeth playing bluegrass in Alaska. A North Bay Bohemian readers’ poll voted her “Best Acoustic Band,” and calls Rand a “legendary…longtime local hero.” “Nothing short of brilliant.” (Santa Rosa Press Democrat).
Having played guitar, piano and mandolin for over 30 years, Andi White has evolved through stages of music ranging from bluegrass to jazz guitar. She now brings her experience and musical diversity to her original music, backed by some of the Bay Area's top musicians, forming Six Hits Later. From instrumental songs that combine complex jazz composition with funky upbeat rhythms to vocal pieces described as reminiscent of 30's era music, Andi’s original music fuses unique fingerpicking stylings and intricate composition with husky, jazz and blues-influenced female vocals.
