Rita Hosking with Sean Feder

“In scorching form” (Telegraph), Northern California’s Rita Hosking sings of culture clash, dishes, forest fires, the working class, and hope. Her latest of six albums, the hero’s journey themed “Frankie and the No-Go Road,” was praised by Maverick as having “more authenticity and integrity than you can shake a stick at.” With her stories in song and soul-stirring voice, Rita partners with Sean Feder on sparkling dobro and banjo to deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.”

Mark & Cindy Lemaire

Originally from New England, by high school he was writing songs and playing the coffeehouses in Boston and Cambridge. At 23, his musical world changed when he landed a job as a recording engineer at the legendary Euphoria Sound. As a staff engineer, Mark learned his studio chops with producer Jimmy Miller, who produced The Rolling Stones, Blind Faith, Traffic, and the Spencer Davis Group. He also did sessions with the wild and infamous Johnny Thunders of the New York Dolls, as well as 80’s college radio darlings Scruffy the Cat.

Mark moved to the San Francisco area in 1985, planning to perform more and engineer a little less. He opened for Maria Muldaur at the legendary Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and for Steve Seskin and Even Dozen Jug Band founder and folk icon Stefan Grossman at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.

In the mid 90’s, Mark began to engineer a different kind of music. He found himself in the cloistered world of classical and early music recording. He’s recorded the San Francisco Symphony, the Santa Rosa Symphony, and many other classical groups.

Mark met Cindy in early 2008. It was immediately clear how perfectly their voices blended. Then Mark asked Cindy if she would please learn a few of his songs. And so she did.

They have been performing together as Mark and Cindy Lemaire  ever since thye got married in 2014. They tour New England every summer, and California appearances have included shows in Carmel Valley, Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and many places in between.

Michael Manring

Hailed by many as the world’s leading solo bassist, Michael Manring has been pushing back the boundaries of what’s possible on the bass guitar for over three decades. While his technical skill and innovations always make an impression, it is his ability to communicate on a profound emotional level that most touches listeners. As editor Tom Darter wrote in Keyboard magazine after seeing one of Michael’s solo concerts, “Forget his astounding technique and musicality; forget his absolute command of his instruments; forget how seamlessly the musical ideas and the performance of them were wedded together…The enlightenment came most from feeling (seeing, hearing) the joy Michael felt to be playing…his brand of transcendental chops and musical understanding…was all in the service of the final outcome, the joy of making music.”

Laurie McClain is performing at The Den this Sunday afternoon from 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM.

While Americana Folk Singer/songwriter Laurie McClain accompanies herself expressively on guitar, ukulele and harmonica, it's her honey voice that soothes and her powerful lyrics that heal hearts. Reminiscent of 60s/70s folk, her songs are messages of hope for a weary world.
