KZFR Presents Joe Craven and the Sometimers

Location: Chico Women's Club
    • 6:30pm Friday, November 15, 2019

    Joe Craven & The Sometimers featuring Bruce MacMillan and Jonathan Stoyanoff, is a tight, crisp string-centric Free Range Folkasaurus Trio offering a no genre left behind policy of music making, recreating and recovering. A 30 year veteran in the biz, Joe comes impressively credentialed (David Grisman, Jerry Garcia + many others) and the 3 of them hold poetic license to operate heavy machinery. Their power tool box includes both upright and electric bass, various guitars, Dobro, lap steel, mandolin, octave mandolin, fiddle, more cowbell and who knows what else. Touring their debut release, Blender, this NorCal roots music trio celebrates a new kind of POP music, as in Pursuit of Possibility music. Give em a listen and you just might do a little dance while youre at it!

    $15 Advance tickets available at Chico Paper Co., Blaze N' J's and the downtown KZFR Office or online at Brown Paper TicketsDoors 6:30pm, Show 7:30pm. Seated show. 

    Joe Craven is not just an entertaining musician with a penchant for the mischievous, he is a teacher and student all at once and he will draw you into his performance by including you as though youre part of the show itself. His gift of gab is unprecedented and his musical knowledge impressive. Joe's openness and expression of gratitude for the gifts hes acquired make it all the more fun for him to share them with his audience. Joe Craven brightens any stage he sets foot on, with his deep musicality and warm, impish demeanor. Garcia Songbook is a brilliant collection of fresh takes on songs he picked up from Jerry Garcias wildly diverse songbook. These arent just glib genre-blending exercises: each track offers an enlightening and engaging new approach. Ive been hooked since my first listen, and every spin yields new treasures.
