Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Nancy Cassidy, whose 15 projects combined have sold over 2 million copies, has just released her 9th album of original material, River's Rising, offering 13 cuts of comfort, community, compassion and hope during times that need it. Like right now. Her millions of fans will recognize her signature stamp and smoky alto through the whole ride, with styles ranging from folk and gospel to feisty rockabilly. This June, River’s Rising was the #8 Album on the Folk DJ Chart and Nancy was #5 most played artist.\nVeteran Ed Tree, born and bred in the deep south, produced River's Rising at legendary Sunset Sound, bringing in the top LA’s session players for a full-throttle showcase of exceptional talent. Accompanying Nancy for this performance will be Ed Tree on guitar, John Roy Zat on fiddle, Bob Hahn on harmonica and Claudia Russell singing harmony.\n“Striking, out-of-the-ordinary imagery…(Nancy) has a way of probing beneath the surface of things with the effective application of metaphor, whether it draws on water, storms, flight, time or space, all communicated via tunes that are not easily ignorable. I can't stress how rare this is in an era dominated by singer-songwriters who are usually more proficient at lyrics than tunes.” - Jerome Clark, Rambles.net \nTickets are $15 and are available in advance at the link below, or you may purchase your tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby). The Back Room is an all-ages, BYOB (for those 21+) space, dedicated to (mostly) acoustic music of all kinds. You are welcome to bring your own adult beverage with no additional corkage fee. If you need more information or have any questions, please call us: #510-654-3808. Thank you for your support!
