Next Main Stage Concert:

Rita Hosking

Rita Hosking with Sean Feder
Saturday, November 8, 7:30 p.m.

Rita Hosking hails from northern California and sings of forest fires, culture clashes, demolition derbies, the working class, and hope. Descended from Cornish miners who sang as they worked, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of voice. Her style of country-folk has been praised for its sense of story and of place. There's a grit to her songs and a sinewy toughness to her voice that weave their own spell. Come hear "superb country-folk from a brilliant singer-songwriter." Rita will be performing with husband Sean Feder on banjo and dobro.
