Location:
  • 7:30pm Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Eilen Jewell with special guest Melody Walker are preforming at the Sierra Nevada Big Room... and KZFR will be broadcasting hte show LIVE! Tune in 90.1 FM or stream it live worldwide right here on www.kzfr.org!

Eilen Jewell blends Americana, country, folk, and other styles acquired while traveling the U.S. Since her 2006 debut album, “Boundary County,” Jewell’s subsequent recordings have given fans variety, including a homage to Loretta Lynn as well as 2009’s “Sea of Tears,” which bristled with the electricity of 60s UK garage rock and Chicago blues. Her latest, “Queen of the Minor Key,” draws on everything from classic country to early R&B.

Melody Walker, quickly becoming a Chico favorite, will open the show.  Picker extraordinaire Jacob Groopman complements Walker and they’ve melded their influences into a style they like to call “Americali”—Americana with a California twist. Drawing from bluegrass, rock, jazz, classical, Afrobeat and more, the duo create literate music that honors tradition yet sounds completely of the moment.

Join us for an extraordinary evening of exceptional talent that’s climbing the sonic ranks.
