TONIGHT!!! Oak & Thorn presents Cassie & Maggie MacDonald

Oct 14, 2017

Tonight!  Come celebrate the rain with us!

Cassie & Maggie are blending Canadian and American folk music into their own personal style.  Balancing powerful vocals with equally powerful instrumentals, they will have you dancing in the aisles and singing along with lovely murder ballads.

The traditional Nova Scotia sound is still there, backing up the nu-folk rhythms and harmonies on songs like "Sealloch" and "Let No Man Steal Your Thyme" and taking the floor in "The Salley Gardens Set."  And they go headfirst into Americana with "The Willow Hits," a medley featuring songs made famous by Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline!   

They also blend their musical gifts with an easy Nova Scotian charm, so their performances are wonderfully entertaining. 

Advance tickets ($20) available online until Friday afternoon at
and at Out of This World in Mendocino, and Harvest Market in Fort Bragg.  Tickets at the door will be $25.

We will have two homebrewed beers on tap, a rich 4-grain Porter and a nice hoppy California Lager (kind of like Anchor Steam).  Also a dry, tart Cider from our orchard here in Albion, and premium Mendocino County wines from Parducci Cellars.
All proceeds go to KZYX.
