John Elliott and Kelly McFarling

Thursday, June 29th, 2017 - 7pm

John Elliott

John Elliott writes gripping stream-of-consciousness songs that often take unexpected turns en route to delivering a powerful message. Chuck Schiele of The San Diego Troubadour wrote about Elliott's lyrics: "They get in, make their statement, kick you in the teeth, and get out before they start talking too much...And this lends to the urge of rolling any track to its beginning for another spin."

Kelly McFarling

Kelly McFarling is an Atlanta, GA born, San Francisco based singer songwriter. Sometimes she plays clawhammer banjo, sometimes she plays guitar. Often she plays a telecaster fronting her five piece band, The Home Team. She loves the vibe of pedal steel, songs in three four, and strong melodies. She writes songs reflective of transitions, movement and landscape, evoking nostalgia and the natural world. Her main influences are the space between things, the wilderness, and its navigation. 

As a vocalist, McFarling is versatile and soulful, skilled and singular. She has sung with the likes of Terry Reid, Y La Bamba, Goodnight Texas, and she is one third of the all female folk trio, Glittersnatch. She has shared bills with Shovels and Rope, Sean Hayes, Chris Pureka, and Jolie Holland. McFarling has recorded two full length studio albums of originals, Distractible Child (2010) and Ridgeline (2013), a covers EP Others (2013) and two live albums, Live at Pirate Ship Laguna (2009) and Live at Eddie’s Attic (2011).  She is currently working on releasing her 3rd full length of originals, in summer 2017.
