Special concert at Marshall Grange

The Marshall Grange, 4940 Marshall Road in Garden Valley, is presenting a special Mother’s Day weekend concert with North Carolinian songwriter, singer and storyteller Michael Reno Harrell on Saturday, May 11.

Local songbird Patrice Webb will open the show at 7:30 p.m. for a rare performance on the Georgetown Divide before migrating back up to Idaho.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door and $10 for card caring grangers and are available at Rose’s Garden Café in Garden Valley, Main Street Music in Placerville, online at brownpapertickets or by phoning 530-642-8671.

Harrell is a well-known performer on the east coast, who is coming to the Marshall Grange as part of a rare west coast tour.

He has won many awards including the featured teller at the National Storytelling Festival and has appeared at major music and storytelling festivals around the world.

He brings a magic to each performance in both spoken word and song. His style makes the audience feel like they are sitting together in the backyard or on the porch — the perfect setting for his stories and songs done with a wit and charm rooted deep in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

His subjects are mostly everyday things: the high school boys who got bored being shepherds in the Nativity play (“Sledding Shepherds”); the story of a waitress in a late night roadside café (“Mama’s Still in There”); the perils of putting in a new woodstove (“Talking Woodstove Blues”); or a guy pan-handling at McDonald’s (“Say, Did I Mention”).

To learn more and hear his stories and songs visit michaelreno.com.

Patrice Webb is a long time resident of the Divide and former broadcaster on KFOK. She began her musical career in earnest a few years back and since then has become noted in the Americana music scene winning third place in the 2012 Indie International Songwriting contest. She currently divides her time between Georgetown and northern Idaho, performing her songs in both places.

Fans can hear her songs at patricewebb.com.

This evening concert is a perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day in the intimate setting of the grange enjoying the music of two fine musicians.

For more information visit marshallgrange.org or call 530-642-8671.

On Saturday, May 11 from noon to 3 p.m., the American River Folk Society is featuring Harrell in a storyteller’s workshop with the theme “Your family stories need to be saved and told.” This is an interactive workshop so attendance will be limited to 30 folks. To get further information and reserve a spot call 530-642-8671.
