D’Anbino Cellars to present Jody Mulgrew, Mare Wakefield & Nomad
– On Oct. 9, from 7-10 p.m., at D’Anbino Cellars, located at 710 Pine St., in Paso Robles, Songwriters At Play will present a concert featuring Jody Mulgrew, sharing the bill with touring duo, Mare Wakefield & Nomad. Special guest Janine Rose will open the show at 7 p.m.
Morro Bay native Jody Mulgrew fronted the old-time/americana band called The Johnny Starlings, and now leads a group called the Skeleton Crew. His debut solo CD, Rocket Ship, gets regular airplay on The Krush 92.5, and won “Best Album” at the New Times Music Awards. This year, he also performed at the Live Oak Music Festival.
Based in Nashville, Mare (pronounced Mary) is a frequent visitor to the Central Coast along with her Martin acoustic guitar and piano-playing husband Nomad. The New York Times wrote of the duo: “Lovely vocals and even lovelier songs. Mare Wakefield and Nomad are a little bit old country, a lot contemporary folk a la Dar Williams or Patty Griffin.”
Mare and Nomad were chosen this year as finalists at Kerrville’s NewFolk Songwriting Competition in Texas and as Emerging Artists at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in N.Y.
