Baby's First Rodeo
Baby’s First Rodeo is a monthly cosmic country showcase, presenting local & traveling country + western musicians, country vinyl, whiskey & good times.
HURRICANE HOSS has blown through the juke joints and watering holes of America, the perfect example of a classical good girl gone outlaw. She’s shot whiskey in the Midwestern Wilds, danced to zydeco in Louisiana, fallen in love in the Rockies, and two-stepped on top of broken hearts in Nashville. With fiddle, banjo, and guitar in tow, Hoss sings the stories of her travels and travails, as well as traditional songs of the American experience.
When not portraying the urban gypsy-cowgirl Hurricane Hoss, Sarah Williams Larsen is one of the Northeast’s hardest working fiddle players. An award-winning contest fiddler, classical call-girl, and session player, she’s recently lent her fingers to Dr. Dog, David Mayfield, Ben Arnold, Saskwatch, Mason Porter, and the Hot Club of Philadelphia. She can also be spotted around Philadelphia with her two musical sisters in the multi-instrumental folk trio Ladybird (heythereladybird.com).
The Ithaca Bottom Boys
Pocono Jones & His Rattlin' Bones
Although he has spent the past decade playing around Philadelphia’s folk rock scene, Pocono Jones grew up hiking and fishing in the mountains of Northeast PA. His formative years consisted mostly of riding his bike to the general store for beef jerky and birch beer. Nowadays he backs up other bands, preferring the musical passenger seat, but on rare occasions takes center stage. For Baby’s First Rodeo, he put together a band of some of his favorite people; Bethany Brooks on various keyboards, Paul Wilkinson on the Gibson bass, Isaac Stanford on the pedal steel and Jim Salamone on the drums.
