08/12/2017 - The Incredible Sonny Landreth at Twisted Oak on August 12
Vallecito, CA...Twisted Oak Winery is pleased to announce the final concert of our 2017 Twisted Folk Concert Series – Sonny Landreth. "I can't think of a higher note to end our season than with Sonny Landreth," said winery owner Jeff Stai. “In fact, I'm sure Sonny can play that higher note just fine! What else can you say about someone who Eric Clapton called 'the most underestimated musician on the planet' - other than 'you should be here August 12th!'







A yummy BBQ rib dinner with side salads will be available for purchase (vegetarian option available), 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 to sit up front, or a regular chair to sit farther back. 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.

Sonny Landreth

When Sonny Landreth was 16, he began experimenting with the slide, “much to the horror of my family,” he chuckles. "I didn’t have anybody to teach me, so I had to find my own way with playing it,” Landreth recalls. He made his first slide, one he still uses: “I got a handlebar from a bike and got a hacksaw and cut myself a little slide. I actually used it on my new album on the acoustic side; I still favor it for the tone."

“My jazz and blues heroes—and the time I had spent playing trumpet, flute, and piano—helped push me to reach for a higher purpose in my music. Classical jazz is all about articulation and dynamics,” Landreth says, “and I could take all that and apply it to guitar. I think that helped make me to come at the guitar from a different perspective.”

Playing slide, says Landreth, “gave me a way to combine all these influences. I had to pull it together stylistically to form a concept and to form all these layers of sound.” Landreth lyrically describes the impact of these influences on him, and the key to his own playing: “The sound of the guitar emulates the human voice; all great acoustic bluesmen do this. I noticed that’s what my jazz and blues heroes were doing, trying to emulate the human voice; they’d use the slide as a profound and emotive form of call and response, and this is why I especially I got into playing bottleneck slide.”

After a dozen acclaimed albums, virtuoso slide guitarist and bandleader Sonny Landreth found himself at an artistic crossroads. He wanted to finally create the full-length acoustic collection his fans had long requested. But he was also itching to capture the sound of his stalwart electric trio augmented by a couple of his favorite collaborators. And the time was certainly right for an elastic, career-spanning double-live album.

So Landreth and his longtime friends decided to do it all. ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ is a 16-song opus that covers more musical ground than any single album ever could, as the singer and songwriter’s work stretches and twists across 93 minutes of full-band acoustic and electric bottleneck lightning.

Landreth has collaborated with the very top names in guitar over the years: Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Eric Johnson, Derek Trucks – the list goes on. The noted slideman cut his musical teeth in The Red Hot Louisiana Band of zydeco king Clifton Chenier, and Landreth has since recorded and toured with artists ranging from John Mayall to John Hiatt. ‘Recorded Live in Lafayette’ adds another major chapter to his tale, as new vocal and instrumental colors emerge.

"Sonny Landreth is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet and also is probably one of the most advanced." - Eric Clapton

"The best slide guitar player in the world” - Marc Knopfler

"I think that the reason he sounds so different is 'cause of where he's from. I can hear fiddles a lot in his playing, just from the way he raises the notes. Slide is just another voice you can have. You can really make a guitar sound like a person, and Sonny knows what that's about." - Dobro ace and fourteen-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas

07/22/2017 - The John Jorgenson Quintet at Twisted Oak July 22nd
Vallecito, CA...Twisted Oak Winery is pleased to announce the next concert of our 2017 Twisted Folk Concert Series – The John Jorgenson Quintet. "The John Jorgenson Quintet are on the short list of our most requested artists to bring back," said winery owner Jeff Stai. “The John Jorgenson Quintet is known as one of the premier combos playing gypsy jazz – that’s in the style of such pioneering musicians as Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli - we're thrilled to have again!"





A yummy BBQ rib dinner with side salads will be available for purchase (vegetarian option available), 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 to sit up front, or a regular chair to sit farther back. 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.

The John Jorgenson Quintet

Music virtuoso John Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a world-class musician and guitarist who has collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. In addition to acoustic and electric guitars, he is also regularly featured on the saxophone, clarinet, bouzouki, pedal steel, mandolin, vocals and has garnered recognition for contributing to numerous platinum-selling and GRAMMY-winning albums.

Currently touring as the John Jorgenson Quintet, Jorgenson creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The group’s style has been called “gypsy jazz” after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt description.

What: Twisted Folk Concert Series Presents The John Jorgenson Quintet

Where: Twisted Oak Winery, 4280 Red Hill Rd at Hwy 4, Vallecito
When: Saturday, July 22nd, 2017 – 7:45pm. Concertgoers admitted at about 6:45pm

Ticket Information:
Tickets $30 advance ($25 Twisted Few wine club members), or $35 at the door, if available.
Children 12 and under: $10. 200% of children’s ticket sales will be directed to supporting music education in local schools.

07/22/2017 - Summer Nights Food Truck Festival in Angels Camp
Angels Camp, CA...Summer Nights Food Truck Festival in Angels Camp

07/15/2017 - Announcing the 24th Annual Murphys Duck Races!
Murphys, CA...Whether wading in the creek scooping up ducks or just enjoying a fun-filled afternoon in the park, just about everyone loves the Murphys Duck Races, part of Murphys Homecoming. This year’s event takes place Saturday, July 15, from about noon to about 3pm in Murphys Park. From 1pm to 2:30pm, there will be three different “races” in Murphys Creek. The Duckling Race kicks off at 1pm, with $3 tickets to vie for a chance to win JoMa’s ice cream, Angels Theater movie tickets, or a gift certificate to Murphys Toy Store. The Quacker Race starts at 1:30pm, and tickets are $5; winners in this event take home prizes like ice cream, movie tickets, or a Zip Line at Moaning Caverns. The finale is the Golden Goose Race at 2pm, in which $10 tickets put contestants in the running for golf at Sequoia Woods, fine dining at the Murphys Hotel, or a gift from Quyle Kilns. After each “heat,” all the kids help corral and collect the hundreds of rubber duckies that have been floating merrily downstream.


To make the races fair for everyone, winners are randomly selected from among all ticket holders. Tickets are available at select times in front of Sierra Hills Market or online at calaverasmentoringfoundation.org.

The Murphys Duck Races is a fundraiser for the Calaveras Mentoring Foundation, which raises awareness and funds for youth mentoring in Calaveras County, especially the Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program. The Calaveras Youth Mentoring Program connects local youth with safe, positive mentors who offer friendship, opportunity, and support for making healthy life decisions. To learn more about how to support this important program, please visit the Calaveras Mentoring Foundation website at CalaverasMentoringFoundation.org.
