MOSTLY SIMPLY BLUEGRASS

The Mostly Simply Bluegrass series at Murphy's Irish Pub in the town of Sonoma, CA, is produced by Larry Carlin and Carltone Music, and it usually takes place on the second Saturday of every month from 8-10 p.m., featuring the finest in bluegrass, country, blues, swing, old-time and Americana music. Please note that this show will start earlier than normal.

On Saturday, May 13th, from 7-9 p.m., see Kevin Russell & His So-Called Friends
.This Sonoma County group plays an eclectic blend of acoustic music. Americana, or roots music, is a term given to music that seeks to blend elements of bluegrass, blues, swing jazz, folk, country, and even a little acoustic rock. And that exactly what they're up to. Their music is rooted in these genre's but with a modern sensibility. Using the typical bluegrass instrumentation of mandolin, fiddle, dobro, guitar, string bass and 5-string banjo they are as likely to do an Irving Berlin swing song from the '40s, or an old Ray Charles  R&B tune, as a hard driving Bill Monroe bluegrass number, or a classic Jimmie Rogers country song. They’ve even been known to sneak in the occasional bluegrassified Beatles song! And when was the last time you heard a bluegrass reggae version of “Sitting Here in Limbo”? 

Murphy's offers fine food and drink at reasonable prices in a family-friendly atmosphere. There is no cover, and children are welcome.
