I'm pleased to bring Rita to the Big Room once again as she is without a doubt one of my favorite singer/songwriters performing today.
“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, FestivalPreview.com) 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. Opening the show with be Grass Valley/Nevada City legend Peter Wilson and he'll be accompanied by the Big Room's own, Bob Littell. 
Give a listen to Rita singing Come Sunrise....
