    Kelly McFarling & The Home Team with Sparrows Gate & The Henry Miller Library Present... Kelly McFarling and The Home Team with Sparrows Gate & Kendra McKinley (solo) An intimate evening of music at The Henry Miller Memorial Library Portraits || Live Screenprinting || Custom Prints Special Thanks To The Maiden Publick House Kelly McFarling and The Home Team|Atlanta, GA // San Francisco, CA |https://soundcloud.com/kellymcfarling Atlanta, GA raised her in church choirs and baseball stadiums. She pays homage to those southern roots using a signature combination of clawhammer and traditional banjo playing. San Francisco gave her the inspiration to begin writing her own music and solidifying her original sound. With her band, McFarling explores territory outside the clear influences of folk, old time, bluegrass and country, creating an authentic blend that is equally at home at firesides or festivals. Her music reeks of transitions, and the ups and downs of choosing a life of shifting foundations in a place that is consciously existing in anticipation of the next big shake. McFarling's music, like herself, occupies a place between places. Sparrows Gate|San Luis Obispo, CA |http://sparrowsgate.bandcamp.com/ Sparrows Gate's music is cut from the same cord as John Steinbeck's desolate western landscapes and the humble optimism of his characters hearts. Zebedee Zaitz's lyrics are the deep reflection of small town California during warm nights. Sparrows Gate is a series of relationships; The guitar and bass rhythm is a product of the brothers' Zeb and Anthony Zaitz relationship and their Florida upbringing. The call and response of the southern guitar licks weave with the range of Joel Tolbert's organ and slide guitar. Tolbert's music is a part of his blood, as three generations have tended to the land and the musical spirit of America's southwest. Drummer Josh Barnhart's steady rhythm, crescendo and fill alternate with melodic vocal harmonies, reflecting the values of an artistic family. Sparrows Gate is a group of musicians linked by the common experience of families heading west early last century to a land of promises and new beginnings. Kendra McKinley| Santa Cruz, CA //San Francisco, CA |https://kendramckinleymusic.bandcamp.com Kendra McKinley is a musician for the new millennium. Combining the sophistication of Tin Pan Alley melodies and the harmonic sense of 1960s chamber pop McKinley writes songs that can command not just your ears but your feet. --- The Henry Miller Library is located at 48603 Highway 1 in Big Sur, 30 miles south of Carmel and 1/4 mile south of Nepenthe restaurant.
