The onstage chemistry of Hot Buttered Rum fuels the love fest that is a live Butter show.  Rooted in the trajectory of West Coast bluegrass, Hot Buttered Rum plays what has been described as California’s own acoustic music.  It’s a sound that’s tough to describe and easy to love, and has found its way to the most prestigious pop, folk, and bluegrass stages in the country.  At the center of Hot Buttered Rum is the enduring camaraderie of old friends.  The band was conceived on a backpacking trip of high school and college buddies in the High Sierra.  What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands.

The Achilles Wheel Trio features Paul Kamm, Shelby Snow, and Jonny Mojo, singer/songwriters and frontmen of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel. As trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of Country and Bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. But it’s the infectious quality of their songwriting that really shines in this setting, and the diverse nature of it as well.

Dance to the country and bluegrass sound of Achilles Wheel Trio!

Paul Kamm, Jonny Mojo and Shelby Snow are singer/ songwriters and front men of the Northern California Roots and World music/Rock and Roll jam band, Achilles Wheel.  As an acoustic trio they bring the same high energy and engaging stage presence to a quieter place, combining a bit of country and bluegrass to the band’s famously hard driving sound. But it’s the infectious quality of their songwriting that really shines in this setting, and the diverse nature of it as well. Paul and Jonny work off of each other like two sides of the same coin, actively looking for and pushing each other to find the most in whatever song they’re playing.  Shelby on the bass is like a river, both calm and turbulent, that runs through it and ties it all together.

We are the oldest and largest CSA farm in the Sierras, and we put tremendous care and skill into growing superb produce for our members. Farming with love and care since 1997, we aim to provide a reliable local source of the highest quality produce for our area, and to work towards the economic sustainability of our rural community. We also want the farm to be a place of inspiration and beauty, a place to reconnect to food and the joys of food culture. Our farming style and philosophy are very simple. By being very attentive to the land, the crops, and the weather, we can succeed at the very challenging art of growing good food. Our techniques involve time-tested organic farming practices that above all prioritize care for the soil. We make heavy use of cover crops, beneficial insectary plantings, compost and organic soil amendments. We are certified organic by CCOF, however we see the organic standards as a starting point and believe that a much better job is possible. Our efforts and investments are rewarded with a bounty of exceptional produce and a farm that continues to improve year by year. Our produce can be found at Three Forks, Heartwood, Stonehouse, Briar Patch, California Organics, Mother Truckers, and New Moon Natural Foods in Truckee.

“I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories.  Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes.. sometimes they almost make me feel like I’m back in, say 1992 at the Warfield.  Check ’em out.”
