About this show

Maurice Tani, of the acclaimed group 77 El Deora, is consistently hailed for his highly literate alchemy of traditional music forms: wide screen ruminations ranging from rye to romantic, blending a broad set of genre-stretching influences from country, jazz, and blues to film scores, gospel and classical music. He then flash freezes them into an Americana melange dripping with rural soul.

The East Bay Express describes the music of Deborah Crooks as "a more diverse take on Americana with a distinctly female tone, and quite charming." Her lyric-driven and soul-wise music draws on folk, rock, Americana and the blues. Often compared to Lucinda Williams and The Cowboy Junkies, she's recorded two full-length Cds to positive reviews, toured the North and Southwest, spoken on creativity at MacWorld and SXSW, and is an active member of the San Francisco Bay Area songwriting and arts community, where she frequently collaborates in the studio and onstage.
