On Saturday, Oct. 6 the Cozmic Café will host two award-winning Northern California songwriters for an evening of storytelling in song in the intimate setting of the upstairs room of the historical Pearson’s Soda Works Building.

The Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville, a long time supporter of local and national touring acts, is proud to host two local favorites with long-time ties to the “Northern California experience.”

Patrice Webb who hails from Georgetown and Will Morebeck who hails from Lincoln are long-time picking buddies who have shared stages at the Sierra Nevada Big Room in Chico as well as Dave’s Cave in Auburn.

Both were 2010 finalists in the Celebration of the Song Songwriting contest hosted by KZFR in Chico and in 2012, Webb’s song “The Small Stuff” was awarded third place in the Indie International Song Contest.

Webb has quickly become a local favorite with her unique blend of folk, country, swing and the blues that speaks to the lives of those who make up the vibrant tapestry known as California.

Webb’s music tells tales familiar to all of us. Her characters are farm workers, the elderly and people down on their luck hoping for a better life.

Although she is often compared to ’60s folk music legends like Judy Collins and Joan Baez, her music often veers off into the western swing of Bob Wills and onto the meandering roadways of the blues and gypsy jazz infused folk.

These are songs that speak of a love of family and friends and are sung with a voice filled with poignancy and humor.

Webb’s CD titled “Photographs” has been receiving airplay on various local community radio stations in California, Oregon and Washington, and her haunting performances have garnered her the label “the songbird of the Sierra Nevada.”

She will be backed up by Conrad Nelson, who produced her CD and also has a history in the Northern California music scene that dates back 40 years in such bands as the Twisters and the Bob Wood’s Band.

Morebeck has been a fixture in the Lincoln area for many years, both as a farmer of organic mandarin oranges and as a songwriter with a special talent for making the lives of ordinary people come alive.

His craggy voice and personable song writing style is reminiscent of singer songwriters such as John Prine, John Haitt and Butch Hancock.

Morebeck has a talent for penning songs that go directly to the heart of the “everyman” that lives in all of us and his true tales of life involve everything from the earthy humor of a relationship gone bad to the poignancy of a family losing their home.

He will be joined by local Sacramento recording artist, Kathy Barwick, who has a history of 30 years playing in bands such as The Mountain Laurel Bluegrass Band, The All Girl Boys.

Barwick is also a recording artist in her own right with her recent release “In My Life” garnering praise on a national level.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and the doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
