Sat, March 3, 2018, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Enjoy Woman’s History Month with a special evening of music by singer-songwriter Joanne Rand, violinist Rob Diggins, and electric guitarist Piet Dalmolen.

Joanne Rand has toured nationally for 30+ years playing original “Psychedelic-Folk-Revival” music, and has just released her 16th indie CD of original songs. Rand’s vocal styling is all her own: “magical and luxuriant, like the best brandy in the world” (-No Depression). Her songs have been called “Nothing short of brilliant,” by Santa Rosa Press Democrat. “Joanne Rand’s voice raises your hair. Elegance and fierceness in the same deep breath,” writes poet Gary Snyder. Rand’s 2015 & 2016 CDs both made the folk DJ most-played-list nationwide and are receiving worldwide airplay.

Born and bred in the Deep South, Rand has performed in Manhattan, L.A., Toronto, Atlanta, Seattle, Hawaii, Alaska & the Amazon. A North Bay readers’ poll once voted her “Best Acoustic Band.” Based in rural Northern California, with a BFA in music composition, she has performed alongside such greats as Bonnie Raitt, Micky Hart, John Hartford, John Trudell, Dougie McLean.

Rand’s songs reflects a wide array of styles (folk, rock, jazz, Celtic, psychedelic, gospel), weaving tales of: War, peace, loyalty, betrayal, hope and humor. “One of the year’s freshest, most distinctive offerings.”-Roots Music Report.

Rand’s band includes eminently talented players dubbed a “supergroup.”

Rob Diggins is a principal violinist with the Portland Baroque Orchestra, Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra and San Francisco’s Magnificat and will be showing off his fusion, folk, world music and psychedelic rock chops as well as his classical virtuosity.

Electric guitarist, Piet Dalmolen is owner-operator and recording wizard at Universal Balance Studios in Arcata. He is a founding member of the long-lived Rock/Funk/Psychedelic Jam band Nucleus and currently plays in multiple touring bands as well as solo. “The Piet Dalmolen lead guitar shines with so many colorful notes it makes the song moving again like the first time you heard it.”(No Depression 2016)
