Aberdeenshire folksinger Iona Fyfe has become one of Scotland’s finest singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. In 2021, she became the first singer to win the coveted title of Musician of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. Iona performs both folk and pop songs in the Scots language, remaining true to her rooting in tradition.

Refreshing, empowering, authentic, whimsical and witty, Sarah Clanton invites her community to cello-brate life as she defines her own style of music with intuitive songwriting and a memorable voice paired with her unique style of playing her carbon fiber cello. Sarah’s innovative sound is an eclectic blend, with flashes of the classically-trained pop sensibility of Norah Jones and the sultry  jazzitude of Amy Winehouse.

Our listening concerts are cash-only at the door unless otherwise noted, but seat reservations can be made at or by calling 209-543-5306. Kids 12 and younger get in free. Doors open thirty minutes prior to showtime.
