Michael McNevin (guest host) and Rick Shea – TICKETS

A couple of legendary troubadours coming to the Blue Guitar for this show. Singer-songwriter and wannabe golf pro Michael McNevin will guest host.

Now a veteran of the folk scene, Michael has played concerts all across the U.S. including main stage appearances at Strawberry, Kerrville, High Sierra, and Philadelphia music festivals. Rick Shea cut his teeth in the bars and honky-tonks of San Bernardino where he grew up. He has gone on to build a solid career for himself as a solo artist, guitarist and songwriter.

David Serby w/ Ed Tree
and Jill Freeman – TICKETS

One never knows quite what to expect from L.A. Alt-country maverick, David Serby. But one thing you can count on — it will be true and it will be good. This is his first show back from a self-proclaimed “gap year,” although he made an impromptu guest appearance a few weeks ago that whetted our appetites. He’ll be joined by Ed Tree. First time Wine & Songer Jill Freeman is a native Angeleno. She began her professional career in music over 20 years ago. Her trio The Life Is Grand Band became stalwarts of the L.A. music scene, gaining an avid following for their tight vocals and original songwriting. Their song “Feel Like Makin’ Art” was included on the Fast Folk series which is now part of the Folkways Smithsonian collection. Jill will be accompanied by her husband and producer Joel Wachbrit along with Steve Nelson on bass and Debra Dobkin on percussion.
