We're happy to welcome back Rita Hosking with her trio.  She's an award-winning and prolific songwriter characterized as "here and now" by The Observer.  She recently released her seventh album, For Real.  Her stories, songs and soul-stirring, country-folk voice are partnered with multi-instrumentalist Sean Feder on dobro, banjo and guitar, and Bill Dakin on the upright bass.  Together, they deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.”

"She narrates the legacies of the working class flawlessly, walking the line between literary genius and front-porch-storyteller with great precision."  Mother Church Pew

"The first thing that hits you... is the strength and power in Rita Hosking's voice, and the fierce passion it contains."  Bob Gottlieb, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange

"The songs of Rita Hosking are as fragile as a newborn baby, and defiant as a West Virginia coal miner."  Stuart Mason, Fiddlefreak Folk Review

Check out the trio at 2017 Strawberry Music Fest performing For the Ride here.
