Garage Roundup is pleased to have Sara & Jacob with special guests as the music residency in May. THIS WEEK - May 20 Sara & Jacob Cardillo Lil' Jimmy & Jenny Dee SARA & JACOB An emerging duo based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sara & Jacob are multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters. Painting emotional narratives told through explorative and experimental song forms, they blur the lines between folk tradition and ambient art. CARDILLO "Dirt roads and low-flying crows come to mind when the first gritty chords of a Cardillo song come on. There is something sentimental shaking in a cage at the forefront of the music, but it's certainly screaming to get out. This might have something to do with the Philadelphia roots of front-man and songwriter Chris Cardillo who spent years in the backstreets of New Jersey, and just as many years in that city which looms across the river like the gnarled teeth of some silver and tarmacked beast. Although the sounds of Cardillo certainly beat with the heart of the east coast, something else carries it away. With the pace of a desert highway coyote, Cardillo's compositions swerve through the backroads of America looking forward and peeking behind only to catch glimpses of the grim truths that haunt us all." - Ray Pinetroll, The Ghost Gazette LIL' JIMMY & JENNY DEE Lil' Jimmy & Jenny Dee are a traditional bluegrass duo on guitar and banjo. Jimmy is an established musician in the California bluegrass scene and Jenny Dee is one of the founding members of The Handsome Ladies, a nonprofit for women bluegrass musicians. Both are insatiable enthusiasts and proponents of traditional bluegrass music. NEXT - May 27 Sara & Jacob Those Willows (Portland, OR) Marcus Stoesz (Of Gentle Spirit) PAST - (and a great success) May 13 Sara & Jacob Michael James Tapscott (Of China) Gray Tolhurst (Of Gray Tolhurst & The Early Nineties)
