Nora Jane Struthers & the Bootleggers Play for Oaksong

What: Oaksong Music Society presents Nora Jane Struthers and the Bootleggers
When: Friday, February 25, 8p.m.; door opens at 7:30
Where: Bernie’s Guitar, 3086 Bechelli Lane, Redding, CA

Blessed with a voice that sounds a bit like a cross between Sarah Jarosz and Laurie Lewis, Struthers immediately enters the front ranks of female bluegrass vocalists with this release. She can sing a mournful murder ballad in the first person on “Willie,” belt out a bluegrass wailer on “Greenbrier County,” warble a dazzling western tune on “Cowgirl Yodel #3,” and murmur a gentle lullaby on the traditional “Say Darlin’ Say” — all with equal ease and aplomb.

Tickets are $18. To purchase, call Bernie’s Guitar at 223-2040.

The Oaksong Music Society is a project of the Shasta County Arts Council.
