On Saturday, July 13, a trio of Northern California songwriters will be bringing their award-winning blend of music to the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville.
When it comes to enjoying local music the atmosphere at the Cozmic Café stands among the best that Placerville has to offer and this tradition continues with this Songwriter Showcase that features homegrown talent from Northern California.
Billy Buckman, who hails from Lincoln, is a songwriter who draws his inspiration from songwriting greats, Woody Guthrie and Utah Phillips.
Buckman has been a fixture on the Northern California music scene for several years acquiring a following of fans that are drawn to his laid back conversational style.
Buckman’s CD “Bluegrass Blues” offers up a down to earth mix of originals and covers that delivers a nice brew of poignancy and humor.
Buckman’s live performances are known for their dry wit and earthy humor.
Singer and songwriter Will Morebeck, also from Lincoln, is one of those rare songwriters who writes songs for the “everyman” in all of us.
Morebeck was a past finalist in the Celebration of the Song competition and is known for penning songs that hit to the heart of the human condition.
In a voice reminiscent of John Prine, Morebeck sings songs of those stranded on life’s troubled shores in a voice that speaks directly to all who have struggled to make sense of a world gone astray.
Patrice Webb, who has called Georgetown home for more than 20 years, sings what she calls “song stories in the language of folk, country swing and the blues” in a voice that is reminiscent of Judy Collins and other ’60s folk icons.
Known for her love of old-time swing many of her originals sound as though they were plucked out of the 1940s era when Bob Wills and Hank Williams reigned supreme.
Her CD “Photographs” has been receiving airplay throughout the western states garnering praise for vivid storytelling and memorable melodies. Her song “The Small Stuff” was awarded third place in the Indie International Song Contest.
The evening will be rounded out by special guest and Placerville native Ginger Marcelino.
Marcelino has been gaining a reputation as a talented photographer and has recently added music to her list of talents. Her appearance at the Cozmic Café will be her first in her hometown.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and the doors open at 7 p.m.
