Singer-songwriter Drew Harrison is one of those rare recording artists with the ability to translate life into song. His passionate, honest, and intense style resonates in the vein of Bono, Ritchie Havens and John Lennon.

In the Spirit of Lennon is Drew’s tribute to John Lennon, and interpretation of his music. He goes beyond just sounding like him, but captures the intensity that Lennon brought to the Beatles music as well as his own.

He leads a very successful, critically acclaimed band, The Sun Kings,in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently performs over 100 shows a year both solo and with his band. Drew’s solo performances and his ‘In the Spirit of Lennon’ shows have yielded much praise.
As a solo artist he has performed in Europe, South America, and in the States he’s been invited to open for such artists as Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Miller to name a few. Drew’s abilities as a multi talented performer have earned him fans throughout the world and his critically acclaimed solo release, Go it Alone, has enjoyed robust success.

Drew also leads The Plastic Fauxno Band, and 9-piece tribute to John Lennon’s solo work. The band’s concert, ‘Love Is the Answer –The Concert for John Lennon’ is a two and a half hour show presenting the concert John might have performed had he toured in 1982. It feature ssongs from his entire solo career, respectfully performed by veteran musicians from bands like The Doobie Brothers, The Rubinoos, Todd Rundgren Band and more.

Somewhere among all of this Drew has found time for stage, TV, film, and completing a degree at UC Berkeley,adhering to a simple philosophy of living life fully, and giving back when one can.

10/02/2021 - Rita Hosking Trio at the Sutter Creek Theatre
Doors at 6:00, open seating, beer and wine available. $19 advance / $22 day of show.

Rita has just released her latest album “Live From Lockdown.”

Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, dishes, rivers, black holes and hope. An award-winning and prolific songwriter characterized as “here and now” by The Observer, her stories, songs and soul-stirring, country-folk voice are partnered with longtime collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Sean Feder on dobro, banjo and guitar. Together, they deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.”
Rita’s style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised with capturing the audience. “This California girl comes by her mountain music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family’s frontier experience,” (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com) and her fans call her “the real deal.” A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.
The music she produces today is an amalgamation of her university studies, teaching experience, motherhood, and the humanity that has moved her since her childhood in the hard-hitting mountains of Northeastern California. “She burns with a controlled intensity” (Lonesome Highway.)

Sean Feder plays dobro, banjo, various guitars, percussion, and sings with Rita as her primary accompanist. His three decades of music performance have been eclectic with a strong penchant towards everything rooted in rhythm. His music career includes collaborative performance and recording projects with several notable rhythmic and melodic masters, such as Arthur Hull (Village Music Circles), Hershel Yatovitz (of Chris Isaak), and Joe Craven. Sean ably serves the groove and melody in order to reveal and kindle the spirit of the music.

10/09/2021 - Tony Lindsay's Soul Soldiers at the Sutter Creek Theatre
Doors 6 pm show 7 pm open seating, beer and wine available.



This will be a fabulous evening of soul and R&B hits of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, Lou Rawls, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, and Etta James!

After 25 years as the lead vocalist for Santana, Tony Lindsay has garnered 11 Grammy awards, traveled on several world tours and recorded on eight CDs.

Vocalist Fred Ross was born and raised in San Francisco has been playing in the Bay Area for 35 or so years with some of the best local Bands in the Bay, like Tower of Power! He has appeared at the theatre in Soul 4 the Season as well as for this show. He has recorded with Aretha Franklin, Boz Scaggs, Narada Michael Walden, PeeWee Eills, Fred Wesley and many more.

Janice Maxie Reid is a world class vocalist and keyboardist from the San Francisco Bay Area. Her musical delivery is a captivating fusion of jazz, blues, gospel and soul. Her distinctive four-octave voice range, fierce keyboard skills and engaging stage presence make her a unique “one woman band.” She nearly stole the show last year with her renditions of Aretha Franklin hits!

Rounding out the line up is Allen Leong on keyboards and vocals, David Jones on bass, David Stuhl on guitar, and Deszon Claibourne on drums.

This was a killer show last time that nearly sold out, the vocals alone are amazing, and the musicianship is excellent.

03/20/2022 - The 2022 Ride & Walk 4 Art Bicycle and Walk Event is March 20, 2022
Valley Springs, CA...The 2022 Ride & Walk 4 Art Bicycle and Walk event is March 20, 2022. Register at www.rideandwalk4art.com. Cyclists and walkers will enjoy the rolling green hills and rural roads of West Calaveras County during the Calaveras County Arts Council’s Sixth Annual Ride & Walk 4 Art on March 20, 2022. With three bicycle ride choices—30, 45, and 100 miles—or a 4.5 mile walk along the shores of New Hogan Lake—there’s something for everybody.








This year, organizer Rob Williams, chair of the Motherlode Bicycle Coalition, the organization that helps manage and coordinate the event, has freshened the popular fundraiser that supports the arts in Calaveras County schools. The biggest change is a new starting venue. The new site, the Jenny Lind Veterans Memorial Park in Valley Springs, offers many benefits. “It’s just a better site,” Williams said. “There is parking for over 200 cars. There are indoor bathrooms. And it starts and ends the ride at a safe neighborhood location. No one is crossing any highways to start the ride.”

“I also like supporting the veterans center. It has really nice amenities and it’s a brand new facility.”

Another change has been the addition of a Century Ride, 100 miles of hill climbs, downhill coasting, and heart-thumping views. “On a clear day you can see across the Central Valley, and into the High Sierra,” Williams said.

“But you don’t have to cycle all 100 miles,” he said. Designed to offer cyclists a choice for their fitness level, the Century revolves around the central 45-mile route, with four out-and-back rides along the way; take all four branch rides to make 100 miles, or add the mileage that is just right for you. Williams cautioned that riders should honestly assess their abilities. Some of the hill climbs are intense.

If you get stuck on the ride with a flat tire, or you just run out of air yourself, volunteers with the Calaveras Amateur Radio Association are stationed at key points along the ride to call up a sag wagon. Two local bike shops will provide mechanical assistance along the route: Mountain Pedaler Bicycles from Angels Camp and Bear Valley Bicycles from Arnold.

“We’re really proud of our safety record, and of making sure cyclists feel comfortable on the road,” Williams said, emphasizing that road safety control will be available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the day of the event, and the American Legion Ambulance service will be on site.

Williams was pleased to announce that after the last two years of Covid-precautions, all rest stops will be fully stocked, and barbecue will be served at the end of the ride. “I’d like to thank Moke Hill Nuts & Candies for leading off with a donation,” he said. He gave a nod to the volunteers who will be stationed at the rest stops. “They’ll take every health precaution to keep riders safe.”

If cycling isn’t your jam, you can enjoy a sedate walk along the Cameron Trail starting at the New Hogan Lake Over Look near the Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters. Hike as much of the 4.5-mile trail as you wish, then head over at noon to the veterans hall for lunch.

One of the most loved and welcome parts of the event is the chicken-in-a-barrel barbecue at the end of the ride. This year, Cynthia Przybyla will organize and cook the dinner with the help of volunteers Luis and Patty Luna. Thanks to a donation of Calaveras Barrel Blend Spice from the Spice Tin in Murphys, the chicken will be extra tasty.

Past participants say that this event is the best local bike and walk event, with plenty of volunteers, a friendly non-competitive community atmosphere, and the proceeds go to a worthy cause.

Ride & Walk 4 Art Supports Arts in Education
Ride & Walk 4 Art supports the Calaveras County Arts Council’s mission to support arts education in Calaveras public schools. Every year the fundraising event Ride & Walk 4 Art raises between $4000 and $6000.

Ride & Walk 4 Art helps pay for many things: art supplies for classes, visiting artists, school theater projects, art days at elementary schools. But most importantly, this fundraiser provides the resources for schools to help students make sense of their lives as they learn critical real-world skills like creative thinking, resilience, problem solving, and project management. Studies show that children with access to the arts fare better in school and in life.

Just by having fun riding a bike, participants give the gift of art to Calaveras County students. That’s a pretty good time for all.
