Nevada City Spring Craft Fair

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nevada-city-spring-craft-fair-tickets-56219141967

Join us on Sunday, April 28, 2019, for the 9th Annual Nevada City Spring Craft Fair! We have over 60 of the top local Etsy crafters, designers, and artisans featuring hand made home dec, apparel, bath products, stationery, art, food, drinks and more.

Nevada City Craft Fair is a juried exhibition of makers curated in the aesthetics of the modern rustic lifestyle that NCCF embodies. Hip, sustainable, yet innovative, represents the best of the region in our bi-annual craft fair held at the historic Miners Foundry in downtown Nevada City.

The first Nevada City Craft Festival was produced in the summer of 2010 by a group of local young crafters, artists and social do-gooders who were inspired by the independent entrepreneurship and creative talents in their community as well as the success of the Renegade Craft Fairs across the US and Europe. The event continues to grow and to date has introduced over 10,000 attendees to more than 600 local and regional artists, designers and crafters.

Nevada City Craft Fair is committed to presenting the freshest voices of the local hand-made movement, under one roof. Come celebrate with us!

“Poised beyond his years, he carved out an identity as a guitar-strumming crooner who could effortlessly strip a song down to its barest essence.” 
~ Rolling Stone

Singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original, Americana artist with an old soul.  His deep, beyond-his-years (19!) lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the United States.  As a folk/blues singer-songwriter, Sawyer Fredericks seemed an unlikely match for reality TV, but he quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win Season 8 of NBC’s The VoiceHide Your Ghost, entirely written and produced by Fredericks, sheds the high gloss major label treatment, and stays true to Fredericks’s honest and elegantly stripped down style, incorporating elements of blues, roots rock, and jazz with live instrumental arrangements throughout.

 

 

The Seattle based quartet Wolfchild was founded in 2015 and has garnered favorable comparisons to literate and vibrantly creative songwriters such as Sufjan Stevens, Conor Oberst, Thom Yorke, and Regina Spektor.  Wolfchild songs are lush and cinematic, rich with ethereal 5 piece vocal harmonies, skyward horn punches, percussion, and deft folk-rock guitary playing.  Lyrically, the quartet offers forth poetic tales of yearing and redemption.

The Foundry Sings

 

 

The rafters of the 160 year old Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center will ring on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.!  Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the singing begins at 6:00 p.m.  Rod Baggett, choral conductor at Nevada Union High School and Seven Hills Middle School, along with multi-instrumentalist and singer Jonathan Meredith, will lead voices unified in song.  This unique countywide experience aims to gather people of all ages and singing levels under one roof to share in the power of song.  The Foundry Sings is inspired by the popular Choir! Choir! Choir!, a weekly drop-in singing event based in Toronto, Canada, which has attracted professional musicians such as Rufus Wainwright to sing with the group.  Admission is a $10 suggested donation or if you join as a recurring member at $7.50/month, you will be able to attend all Foundry Sings events for free during 2018.  Tickets may be purchased online, or by phone and in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made by phone or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office.

How It Works

When attendees arrive, they are given a lyric sheet to a popular contemporary song.  Attendees do not need to know how to read music, Rod Baggett and Jonathan Meredith will teach vocal arrangement and lead practices.  At the end of the evening everyone joins together to sing the song.  The performance is filmed and posted on YouTube.  Everyone has a grand time and goes home feeling great!

The quarterly event is a fundraiser for the Miners Foundry Cultural Center’s building improvement fund.  For nearly 160 years the historic Miners Foundry Cultural Center has been the hub of arts, culture, and community in Nevada County.  Each year over 400 events are hosted in our beautiful halls including signature events presented by the Miners Foundry.  Individually, these events represent how diverse the arts are in our community, and together they make up the rich cultural fabric we have come to enjoy for generations.
