The Magpie Salute is an exciting new band that features musicians who have played together for decades throughout various projects and share a musical bond. The band brings Rich Robinson, the guitarist and co-founding member of The Black Crowes, together with two key members of Crowes fame — guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien — alongside drummer Joe Magistro, keyboardist Matt Slocum and lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke).

The band’s performance in Folsom will feature new songs from the album being be released late Summer alongside others culled from a catalog of over 200 compositions the band has played since their inception.

Following close to 80 appearances over the course of 2017, The Magpie Salute entered Dark Horse Studios in Nashville this past winter to record their debut release of original repertoire. That album will be released late Summer. The band’s performance in Folsom will feature these new songs alongside others culled from a catalog of over 200 compositions the band has played since their inception.

Rich stated, “We will continue in the long line of digging deep into my old Crowes’ catalogue, some great covers, some we’ve done before, some we have never played, songs from my solo records and some of Marc’s songs off of his new record.” Marc believes that this variety in set list “keeps everything interesting to us” and asks, “If we weren’t into it, how could the listeners be?”

The Stone Foxes

The Stone Foxes are San Francisco’s rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock ’n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown, and have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, and ZZ Top.

Not for Rehire is Keith Lowell Jensen’s latest hour of comedic storytelling. While presenting what could definitely be described as a one man show, the comedian keeps within the timing and patter of stand up, the end result fitting the bill at a comedy club as readily as at a theater. This show at Harris Center will be taped LIVE and Becky Lynn will be opening the show.

From working at a golf course for less than minimum wage to getting punched in the face by his manager at a floating restaurant to getting up to all manner of mischief with the deep fryers at KFC, Jensen has made quite a career of not having a proper career.

“With no 401k, no savings, no retirement account, these stories are the only return on my investment.” Luckily, they’re very good.

Keith Lowell Jensen has become known for his subtle, smart approach, and his meandering story telling.

Keith Lowell Jensen has become known for his subtle, smart approach, and his meandering story telling. He has appeared on The History Channel, Spike TV, and the Starz Network, and has five hilarious comedy albums to his credit, including Bad Comedy For Bad People, hitting the #1 spot on Amazon’s comedy charts.

Engaging, hilarious and, at the end, so emotional it might bring you to tears.

— Aaron Carnes, Sacramento News and Review

Everyone can relate.

Prediction: You’re gonna love Jensen’s style of subtle, smart storytelling.

Music Heals welcomes: the Laurie Morvan Band, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Daniel Castro, Mighty-Mike Schermer, and special guest Roy Rogers!

The devastation from the Camp Fire will be felt throughout the communities affected for a very long time. Music Heals at Harris Center in Folsom is one of the many benefit concerts organized for the sole purpose of providing funds directly to the families that have endured the most destructive fire in California State history. The proceeds from this concert will be sent directly to the North Valley Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Chico. Please visit NVCF website for information about the efforts being made to support the families impacted by this tragic disaster. Music Heals welcomes the Laurie Morvan Band, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Daniel Castro, Mighty‑Mike Schermer, and special guest Roy Rogers, all of whom are donating their time and talents for this show! Please join us for this fantastic night of music featuring some of the best Blues and Americana musicians from California!

Laurie Morvan Band

Laurie Morvan Band is a five-piece high energy, rockin’ blues band lead by its fiery female lead guitarist/vocalist. This tight-as-nails machine from Long Beach has fired up over 70 festivals and 700 shows together throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Laurie’s much-anticipated sixth album Gravity, released this year, was an immediate hit with both fans and critics.

Morvan has all the soulfulness of Bonnie Raitt and the swaggering, muscular guitar tone of Stevie Ray Vaughan.”

News Gazette

Tom Rigney & Flambeau

Tom Rigney is one of the premier Roots Music fiddle players on the planet. His band — Tom Rigney & Flambeau — specializes in blazing Cajun two-step, low-down Blues, funky New Orleans grooves, Boogie Woogie piano, and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes. Much of the repertoire is composed by Rigney, but they mix in a few classics from the Cajun/New Orleans songbook. Along the way you may pick up a trace of Rigney’s Irish roots, or echoes of Eastern Europe — it just makes the musical gumbo that much tastier! Rigney’s high-energy showmanship pulls the audience into his performances and makes them feel they are a part of the music and the show.

Daniel Castro

Describing Daniel Castro as a blues artist doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. A highly accomplished guitarist and singer/ songwriter with a strong musical point of view grounded in the very best blues traditions is more like it. Combine those talents with original blues-based material and you begin to understand Daniel’s strengths as an artist.

He’s got that real deal feel. Daniel Castro is a great musician and entertainer.

Elvin Bishop

Mighty-Mike Schermer

Mighty-Mike Schermer was a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene for over 20 years when he relocated to Austin, Texas in 2009 and joined the touring band of swamp-boogie piano legend Marcia Ball. He carved out a solid solo career, with four critically-acclaimed albums, an award winning single, and thousands of performances at festivals and nightclubs the world over. He also became the “go-to guy” sideman for such heavyweights as Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Angela Strehli, Bonnie Raitt, Howard Tate, Charlie Musselwhite, Sista Monica, Shana Morrison, and many more. Oh, yes, we may be judged by the company we keep, but, when the spotlight shines, a solo artist must be able to bring the goods all on their own. Mighty-Mike Schermer delivers on all fronts.

Roy Rogers

Virtuoso slide guitarist and Grammy nominated songwriter/producer and recording artist Roy Rogers remains defiantly upbeat on his 12th solo album Into the Wild Blue. Even though 64 year-old Rogers has lost longtime friends like blues legend John Lee Hooker, his recent recording partner of eight years, Ray Manzarek of The Doors, as well as his younger brother Robert, he says “life’s too short” to wallow in our grief or what we have lost. “I want to celebrate life through my music.”

Into The Wild Blue wails, squawks, stomps and boogies with authenticity — ready for the open road and the live stage. Years of working with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, Sammy Hagar, and Steve Miller has given him a pop musicality.

Roy Rogers means the modern master in the art of slide guitar . . . His versatility with the technique is nothing short of astonishing.

Emmy Award-winning comedienne Vicki Lawrence is one of the most beloved television personalities of her generation. Plucked out of total obscurity as a high school senior, Vicki went on to become part of the now-legendary cast of “The Carol Burnett Show.” “I went to the Harvard School of Comedy in front of America,” says Ms. Lawrence of her Burnett Show training.

In the seventh season, and hundreds of hilarious sketches later, at the ripe, old age of 24, Vicki created her most endearing character to date, Thelma Harper, or “Mama” as she is better known to her fans. After the Burnett Show, Vicki went on to star in “Mama’s Family,” which consistently topped the ratings for its entire six-year run of original shows. “Mama” has attained almost a cult status among her legions of loyal television viewers.

“I went to the Harvard School of Comedy in front of America,” says Ms. Lawrence of her Burnett Show training.

Ms. Lawrence decided that the time is right to take Mama out of the closet, dust off her sensible shoes and hit the road with her new touring production, Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two-Woman Show.

Ms. Lawrence takes the stage first. “My show is not a retrospective,” she explains. “It is a mixture of stand-up comedy, music and my observations about real life.” The multi-talented entertainer is mostly known for her acting and comedic talents, but she also earned a gold record for the 1973 hit, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”
