About the Event
Crying Time plays straight-up honky-tonk and country music. Singer Jill Rogers writes songs of love and loss; with wry observations they illuminate love on the verge of dissolution or look back with regret at something that might have been. With her 1974 voice, these sound like songs you might have heard on your Daddy’s car radio on long drives up the coast. The band mixes into its sets slyly curated covers - from Bob Wills to Lynn Anderson to Jeannie C. Riley and Glen Campbell, with unexpected pitstops along the way. Guitarist Myles Boisen is a hero of juke joint licks on the six string and lap steel guitar. Bay Area music scene veteran Tony Marcus's fiddle weaves through the songs while Tim Rowe on drums and Russell Keil on bass hold down the rhythm with grace, style, and swing.
The Bear Flag Trio hail from Sacramento, California. The band plays a mix of old time hillbilly boogie, honky tonk, early rockabilly, and country music. The members are Kathleen Harvey on tenor guitar, Scotty Prawalsky on bass, and Chris Harvey on electric guitar. The band have been playing together since 2013. The Bear Flag Trio plays a mix of covers and originals, but their musical heart is firmly set in the country, hillbilly, and honky tonk music of California from the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.
