Hometown favorites Windy Hill return to Club Fox for their fourth album release: Live From the Ratz Nest.
Windy Hill is keeper of the bluegrass flame on the West Coast. Formed in 2008 by a couple of M-A High School pals, the band has covered a lot of ground in 10 years, performing all over the western states and recording four prolific bluegrass albums.
Three-part harmony, lonesome duets, banjo breakdowns, honky-tonk sorrow, blues mandolin, and original material all combine to create their vision for bluegrass music and its future. Come on out for what's sure to be a fun local's night.
It’s immediately evident at a Windy Hill show that the band is excited about bluegrass music and have big fun picking and singing. They’re becoming increasingly well-known – and are winning awards – for their entertaining performances.
Windy Hill began as an idea in a Menlo Park (CA) High School wood shop class, where two 17-year-old friends sat around their work station sanding their projects and talking about live music. They discovered a mutual love for the songs of Bill Monroe, Carter Stanley, and Jimmy Martin and set out to learn to play and sing traditional music.
In 2008, these two friends – Henry Warde and Ryan Breen – found themselves in Fort Collins, Colorado, and started their band. Windy Hill was always the natural choice for the band name, as Ryan's backyard in Portola Valley, CA, overlooks the town’s landmark – a golden hill separating the SF Bay Area from the Pacific Ocean.
The Naked Bootleggers: Local favorites from the Santa Cruz Mountains bring a fresh approach to OLD TIME MOUNTAIN MUSIC. Reviving the standards of yesterday while writing standards for tomorrow, local musicians Don Mackessy (banjo), Ona Stewart(guitar), S.T. Young (guitar, washboard, harmonica), James Mackessy (bass), Jeremy Lampel (mandolin) are bridging the gap between old time and contemporary music with captivating vocal harmonies, lyrical creativity and that high lonesome sound of old.
