SLOfolks is very pleased to bring to our stages the incredibly talented Joe Craven and the Sometimers!  If you are unfamiliar with Joe Craven, here's a brief intro cribbed from his website:

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 you’re 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 he’s acquired make it all the more fun for him to share them with his audience.

Now Joe has put together a fabulous new trio - which he defines as Americana in the Pursuit of Possibility!  They also use the tag line "No genre left behind!"  

PLUS!  Joe is going to hold a Music Improvisation Workshop at Castoro Cellars that Saturday afternoon!  These are small and intimate - limited to just 20.  If you've been interested in expanding your musical skills and repertoire, Joe will help you learn the way!  Seriously, this is a great opportunity.  Tickets for the workshop (and more info) through Brown Paper Tickets here...

Joe Craven has found a couple of hot young pickers worthy of his chops: wild man bassist Jonathan Stoyanoff and Bruce MacMillan dazzling with crafty dobro, acoustic guitar pickin’ and angelic voice. With Joe’s wildly eclectic musicality, the sonic possibilities are unlimited. I just saw this new trio and… WoW!” – PBS television producer Peter Berkow
