SF Live Arts
THE LADY CROONERS
Saturday, May 30 8:00pm
$18 door / $15 advance
Two very California ensembles take the same basic ingredients--bluegrass, folk, swing jazz and a pinch of classic country--and come up with sounds that are completely distinct, yet utterly compatible. Come experience two bands at the forefront of the emerging California acoustic music scene.
Recently hailed as “local folk heroes,” THE LADY CROONERS formed in 2010 as a collaboration of siblings, Nadia and Joseph Krilanovich. “As with many sibling groups, harmony vocals are at the fore and the arrangements, and their overall approach to their musical craft, draws comparison to Gillian Welch, Emily Barker and the Civil Wars.” Songwriting was a natural fit for the duo, him with a guitar, her with a love of storytelling. Adding little sister Megan, bassist Jason Braatz, lead-guitarist Kevin Conness, and producer/engineer John Smart on percussion/mandolin launched The Lady Crooners into their signature raucous, sophisticated, down-home act. Harnessed by Nadia’s honest voice and a perfect complement of sibling harmonies, the 2013 release of catchy new single, SWEETHEART, says it all. The Lady Crooners are here to share their authentic, darn good music with you.
MerryGold, the surprise hit of last year's SF Free Folk Festival, is poised for even more exciting times in 2015. After recording their latest album “Hangtown” at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios in late 2014, the band also completed their first international tour, including 23 shows in Germany.
