MerryGold from Placerville and McCoy Tyler Band from Santa Cruz are teaming up for a night of music at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville, on Friday, Feb. 8.
The show starts at 8 p.m.
The McCoy Tyler Band returns to Placerville to promote the band’s new album. The band played in Placerville last fall to rave reviews and is looking forward to the return engagement.
The three-piece acoustic trio is plays music somewhere between Dylan and The Devil Makes Three, Townes Van Zandt and Railroad Earth, with a little Bill Monroe and Tony Rice thrown in for good measure.
The group formed in May 2011 and seeks to pay homage to such traditions while incorporating its own unique style of lyricism, instrumentation and performance.
Hometown heroes, MerryGold — Alex Stephens (guitar, mandolin and vocals) and Jillian Secor (guitar and vocals) — specialize in original music and classic ballads combining raw energy and beautiful melodies that push folk music to the edge.
In a style similar to Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss, and David Rawlings, MerryGold takes listeners back to simpler times with folk/bluegrass songs.
There is a $8 cover charge.
