Come to San Francisco's Brick and Mortar Music Hall for a night of bluegrass and Americana, featuring: AJ Lee & Blue Summit, The Beauty Operators and Rainy Eyes!!! AJ Lee & Blue Summit (Bluegrass) The San Francisco Chronicle says, "while AJ Lee is only 19 years old, she’s been the new face of bluegrass for more than a decade." The six-time Female Vocalist award winner from the Northern California Bluegrass Society made local bluegrass history this summer when she performed on the first ever bluegrass float in the San Francisco Pride Parade. This year she was also nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Association's Momentum Awards in the vocalist category. AJ and her band, Blue Summit, are based in Santa Cruz, and most of them met at bluegrass festivals. In addition to AJ on mandolin in vocals, the band includes Sully Tuttle (Guitar, vocals), Isaac Cornelius (Standup Bass, vocals), Sam Kemiji (Fiddle, vocals), and Jesse Fichman (Guitar, vocals). The Beauty Operators (Weirdgrass) The Beauty Operators String Band was born out of San Francisco bluegrass jam scene. On the streets and in the clubs of San Francisco, they're known for their bluegrass, weird-grass, punk-grass, cry-in-your-beer grass, and 80s cover-grass. Rainy Eyes (Americana) Rainy Eyes (Irena Eide) is a Norwegian-born singer-songwriter who has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past decade, writing music, performing and touring throughout the US. She is most often accompanied by Bay Area bluegrass fiddler/singer Amy Scher from Philadelphia, by way of Flagstaff Arizona. Together their voices blend beautifully and creates a soulful, heartfelt and timeless sound with tight knit harmonies and thoughtful songwriting. Rainy Eyes has opened for bands like Jackie Greene, Jon Cleary, Peter Rowan, Steep Ravine and played prominent stages like Sweetwater Music Hall Henry Miller Library, Sonoma Mountain Music Festival and more. Her soon to be released debut album features Eli West (Cahalen Morrison and Eli West) on banjo, guitar and harmonies and Amy Scher on fiddle and harmonies. Rainy Eyes also won "best song of the month" at the Freight and Salvage West Coast Songwriters competition in April 2015 for her song "Moon In The Mirror", and has co-written two songs with grammy-award winning Peter Rowan. These songs will be featured on the upcoming solo debut album. **************************** $10 advance / $15 at the door / Age 18 And Up Doors: 7pm Show: 8pm Tickets available: https://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&eventId=7825185
