  Saturday, December 5th, Claudia Russell & Bruce Kaplan , 7:30PM

Claudia Russell is an outstanding singer and songwriter who has shared stages with Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Loudon Wainwright III, Steve Forbert, Tish Hinojosa, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Darryl Purpose, Peter Rowan, Rosalie Sorrels and Bill Staines, among many others. She is accompanied by the Folk Unlimited Orchestra which includes Bruce Kaplan on mandolin, guitar and vocals, and Mark Petrella on string bass. When the planets align, she is sometimes pleased to count Carl Byron (piano accordion), and Eric Lewis (dobro, guitar, mandolin) and Tom Tally (viola) in the band. Boston's WUMB FM named Claudia the Best New Artist of 2000, the East Bay Express named her Best Musician in 2006, and she has twice been selected as a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition. Claudia was a 2004 finalist in the Sisters Folk Festival Songwriters contest in Bend Oregon and the 2002 KRCL Songwriting contest in Salt Lake City. Claudia has performed for thousands as cast member in several productions at American Folklore Theater in Door County WI, including "Old Friends," "Goodnight, Irene," "Fish and Whistle," and "Sometimes a Song." Claudia was formerly a member of Maggie's Farm and The Life Is Grand Band. Besides writing evocative songs, Claudia is known for her vocal talent. She is an expressive and versatile singer, as at home on a soulful ballad as a Buddy Holly style romp.  But music is in the ear of the listener. So have a listen and hear for yourself! 

I am requesting a $15.00 donation with all proceeds going to the performers. For information and reservations email wjwagman@dcn.org or call (530) 753-3472.
