About

Loudon Wainwright III’s long and illustrious career is highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, Movie and TV credits, and now his new autobiography, Liner Notes(2017 Penguin/Random House). In 2010 Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. His 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of the Year. September 2018, Loudon releases his 27th career album to-date, Years In The Making, a retrospective double CD with more than 45 tracks – live performances, demos, outtakes, unreleased songs spanning 50 years.

Wainwright is perhaps best known for the novelty song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road)”, and for playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon”, on the American television show, M*A*S*H.

His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison. He has collaborated with songwriter/producer Joe Henry, on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up.  Loudon penned music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel Lucky You. He composed topical songs for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and ABC’s Nightline, and recorded several songs for the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

As an actor, Wainwright has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow.

Achilles Wheel

BUY ONLINE or CALL (530) 265-5040 Tue. – Fri. 9:00 – 4:00 | Doors open at 7:00pm and the show starts at 8:00

About

Achilles Wheel will be performing on the Miners Foundry stage on Friday, November 29 at 8:00pm as part of a Live Recording Series for their next album!

Achilles Wheel blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance hall psychedelia.

Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live free and have a good time… and in the end – hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times, the here and now.

ABOUT

Fans of rock-n-roll guitar will be in heaven  as they join guitar goddesses Gretchen Menn (of Zepparella,) Jennifer Batten (of Michael Jackson’s touring band,) and Nili Brosh (Tony MacAlpine side-woman) as they celebrate evolved guitar with individual performances and a THRILLING collaborative show closer!

Photo: Brent Angelo

The buzz on Jennifer Batten rose from the guitar
underground, and the guitar magazines promptly began chronicling her savvy musicianship and highly original approach to the electric guitar. A major turning point came when she was selected from over one hundred guitarists to play in Michael Jackson’s highly skilled band which toured the world for one and a half years playing for over four and a half million people. Following the Bad tour’s conclusion, Jennifer became one of very few women to grace the cover of Guitar Player Magazine.

Photo: Max Crace

Rapidly gaining praise in the world of instrumental rock and beyond, Gretchen Menn isn’t your average guitar hero on the rise. She once flew regional jets to support her six-string habit. She has studied, in equal parts, the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Steve Morse, Frank Zappa, and Jimmy Page. (Regarding the latter composer, she performs the music of Led Zeppelin all over the U.S. with Zepparella.) Perhaps Michael Molenda, Guitar Player Magazine’s editor-in-chief, described Gretchen’s solo music best when he said that she “seeks the unknown by blending disparate jazz, prog, and world-music influences into a tasty, guitaristic thrill ride.”

Photo: Tim Salaz

Nili Brosh is a world-renowned guitarist who is at the forefront of leading a new generation of passionate
and gifted musicians. In 2010, Nili released her debut instrumental album entitled “Through The Looking Glass”, which featured members of her band along with a guest appearance by famed guitarist Andy Timmons. In the following few years, she joined The Iron Maidens for countless performances in the US, and became a member of Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X, CAB)’s band, touring the US, Europe, and Mexico. She has also made guest appearances with Andy Timmons, Stu Hamm, Guthrie Govan, The Aristocrats, and has opened for Yngwie Malmsteen on his 2013 “Spellbound” US tour.

The Polish Ambassador

BUY ONLINE or CALL (530) 265-5040 Tue. – Fri. 9:00 – 4:00  |  Doors are at 7:00 pm and the show begins at 8:00 pm

The Miners Foundry will present The Polish Ambassador on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 8:00pm. 

The Polish Ambassador played to a sold out crowd last Halloween at the Foundry and is delighted to return! This is not a Halloween-themed show, and costumes are optional, as always.

About

The Polish Ambassador (real name David Sugalski) is raising the bar for what it means to be a professionally touring musician. Sure, the electronic musician lays claim to producing the sweetest beats this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, but the world’s funkiest diplomat is also using his popularity to steer the millennial generation toward a nourishing and sustainable way of relating with art, community and the planet. From birthing the Permaculture Action Movement (a movement where the energy of show/festival goers is catalyzed into community action), to launching a Village Building Convergence in his hometown to creating a program where nutritious beverage options are available at music venues on a routed TPA tour, the ambassador is using his clout to make real, tangible change, and along the way inspiring hundreds of thousands.

Kaminanda

Kaminanda’s ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and lush downtempo textures. His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.

The Small Glories

BUY ONLINE or CALL (530) 265-5040 Tue. – Fri. 9:00 – 4:00  |  Doors are at 6:00 pm and the show begins at 7:00 pm

ABOUT

Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as they are right there on the stage with the band — writing the songs, living the songs, performing the songs. It’s not uncommon for listeners to find themselves laughing, dancing, crying, or caught up in a good ol’ fashioned sing-along.  a chemistry labeled the “Lennon-McCartney syndrome,” by Americana UK, writing, “Some things just work together… to witness a performance by The Small Glories is a rare opportunity to experience that indefinable quality that creates perfection.”

Luft is a Wailin’ Jennys alum whose work on the clawhammer banjo is to die for, while Edwards’ guitar and vocal harmonies deepen and enrich the duo’s sound.”
