05/29/2017 - Don't Miss The Calaveras Community Band Memorial Day Concert
Murphys, CA...The 2017 music season in Murphys Community Park will get an exciting and eclectic kick-off when the Calaveras Community Band presents a special Memorial Day concert under the direction of conductor Mic Harper on Monday, May 29, at 6:30 p.m. There is no admission charge for the program that will honor the men and women who have served in the armed forces in the past and those currently stationed around the world. The band will play a service song for each branch of the military, Sousa Marches, popular tunes from Sinatra, a Beach Boys medley, Four of a Kind featuring the trumpet section, and many more summer-in-the-park tunes.


Families and other members of the community are invited to pack a picnic dinner and enjoy this start of the season concert. There will not be any food or beverages for sale in the park.

The Calaveras Community Band traces its history to the days following the Gold Rush. Men would brush away the grime of the mines, put on a uniform, grab their horns and entertain the crowds at many public functions. Creating music brought extra meaning to their lives and provided a counterpoint to the stresses of the day.  In those times it was known as the Angels Camp Miners Band, the Murphys Independent Cornet Band, and a dozen other names as the years passed.

Through the cooperation of the Murphys Community Club, during the warm-weather months the band holds its weekly Monday rehearsals in the park’s distinctive gazebo starting with a short informal concert at 6:30 PM, followed by the rehearsal from 7:30 to 8:30 PM.

“Please join us, bring some food and beverage, and relax for the evening with family and friends in Murphys beautiful park” says Harper.

The band is always looking for musicians to join it in providing entertainment throughout Calaveras County.

“We invite members of our community who play a musical instrument to join us in keeping the tradition of live community band music alive in Calaveras County." says Harper.  “We are a fun group that gets great joy out of providing all forms of band music in the Mother Lode. No matter your age, you can find a place with us. Many people who have not played for years discover that they still have chops.”

Anyone wanting to learn more about becoming a band member should call Carol Betz at 728-9057. The band’s website is calaverascommunityband.org.

Murphys Community Park is located on Algiers St. in historic downtown Murphys. The Murphys Community Club, that has oversight of the park, is hosting eight music-centered events from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Membership in the club is open to everyone and contributions are tax deductible. For further information, call 728-8183, or click on the Community Club link at visitmurphys.com.

05/27/2017 - Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester at Twisted Oak Winery May 27th
Vallecito, CA...Twisted Oak Winery is pleased to announce the next concert of our 2017 Twisted Folk Concert Series – Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester. "Jerry Douglas! Jerry (freakin') Douglas!!" said winery owner Jeff Stai. “I've been a fan for years, and I know there are a lot of folks who feel the same way. By way of 'Alison Krauss and Union Station', Jerry Douglas is an icon in bluegrass music, considered the best Dobro player in the world. We're delighted to be able to welcome Jerry and the Earls for one of a very few dates currently scheduled in California this year!”







A yummy BBQ rib dinner with side salads will be available for purchase, along with yummy Twisted Oak wine, popcorn, and soft drinks. Concertgoers are welcome to bring their own picnics and non-alcoholic drinks, but we ask that no outside alcoholic beverages be brought in.

Seating at Twisted Folk concerts is outdoor festival style, first-come, first-served – bring a low beach-type chair or a blanket. We’re on top of a hill and there is always an evening breeze – it can get a little chilly after dark so please plan ahead.

Jerry Douglas

Dobro master and 14-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar: elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways. In addition to being widely recognized as the foremost master of the Dobro, Jerry Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose output incorporates elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.

Called “dobro’s matchless contemporary master,” by The New York Times, fourteen-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music, both as a solo artist and member of groundbreaking bands including J.D. Crowe & the New South, the Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek, the Grammy-winning The Earls of Leicester, and Strength In Numbers. Douglas’ distinctive sound graces more than 1500 albums, including discs released by Garth Brooks, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Earl Scruggs, and Ray Charles, among many others.

Since 1998, he’s been a key member of “Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas”, touring extensively and co-producing and playing on a series of platinum albums. He has produced albums for Krauss, the Del McCoury Band, Maura O’Connell, and Jesse Winchester and is is co-Music Director of the acclaimed BBC TV series Transatlantic Sessions, and his latest solo album Traveler features guest appearances by such notable friends as Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, and Eric Clapton, among others. 


As he continues his incalculable influence on Americana, bluegrass and their many related genres, Douglas forges as a true pioneer in American music.

The Earls of Leicester

The Grammy© and IBMA award-winning band The Earls of Leicester encompasses dobro great Jerry Douglas plus acclaimed writer, producer, and solo artist Shawn Camp on lead vocals and guitar, renowned Nashville banjoist Charlie Cushman on banjo and guitars, second-generation fiddle phenom Johnny Warren, and Barry Bales, Douglas' longtime bandmate in Alison Krauss and Union Station, on vocals and bass. The group is the product of the band’s shared lifelong passion for the music of bluegrass pioneers Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and their band the Foggy Mountain Boys, and pays homage to their seminal work in the '50s and '60s which created the template for what we know as contemporary bluegrass, and transcended traditional genre barriers to popularize the music with an unprecedented mass audience.

What: Twisted Folk Concert Series Announces "Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester"

Where: Twisted Oak Winery, 4280 Red Hill Rd at Hwy 4, Vallecito
When: Saturday, May 27th, 2017 – 7:45pm. Concertgoers admitted 6:45pm
