About the Event

"In scorching form," (Telegraph), Northern  California's own Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash,  demolition derbies, the working class and hope. From NPR's Weekend  Edition to Bob Harris' BBC show, Rita is moving audiences across the  globe with her stories in song and soul-stirring voice, "a captivating  performer," (R2 Magazine).  Rita's style of country-folk has been  lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised with  capturing the audience. Honors include winner of the 2008 Dave Carter  Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in  the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest, and honors in the  International Songwriting Contest and West Coast Songwriters'  Association. "This California girl comes by her mountain music  sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in  her family's frontier experience," (Dan Ruby, and  Rita's fans call her "the real deal." A descendant of Cornish miners who  sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the  power of the voice.
