Event description

Description

One of the Bay Area's most eclectic and dynamic Americana duos, Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan traverse a wide Americana landscape, stopping at musical landmarks along the way, tipping their hat to bluegrass bands, blues divas, jazz cats, Village folkies, and singing cowboys. Lesser performers might stumble or sound fake, but driven by Claudia’s expressive voice and distinctive guitar style, it all comes together beautifully.

Claudia has a knack for crafting tightly written songs that carry you to the sweet spots of youth and the autumn colors of growing older. Kaplan’s melodic accompaniment, on mandolin, banjo and electric guitar, is spot-on. All of this is served up with a generous helping of homespun humor and shaggy dog stories, making for a heartfelt and humorous evening of deeply engaging music.

Sing Outmagazine has hailed Claudia as “a great live performer.” Russell and Kaplan have toured across the country, performing in living rooms, barns, churches, and coffee houses as well as festivals including Kerrville Folk Festival, Boston Folk Festival, the New Bedford Folk Festival, Black Hawk Folk Festival, and multiple concert appearances at legendary venues such as McCabe’s, Club Passim, and Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage. American Songwritercalled her fourth and most recent CD, All Our Luck is Changing,“a masterpiece.”

The duo has just completed their fifth CD with folk and bluegrass icon Laurie Lewis producing. As with their live performances, this new recording explores a wide musical landscape and reveals a bakes dozen of songs about diverse subjects ranging from love, longing, loss to gardening and Johnny Cash. During this show, they'll perform the new songs in their entireity as well as a few old favorites. Come join the celebration.
