Sharon Gilchrist, No Place Pacific, The Drifter Sisters, Laurie LewisLaurie Lewis, Freight favorite and host of New Voices, is so enamored with these young and talented musicians that she wanted to make sure the Freight audience had an opportunity to hear them—and at last century’s admission prices, you owe it to yourself to take a chance on getting blown away!

Sharon Gilchrist is a singer, composer, and mandolin marvel who has played with Darol Anger, Uncle Earl, the Peter Rowan and Tony Rice Quartet, the Kathy Kallick Band, and Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands.  Bluegrass is her primary focus, but she’s also influenced by jazz, classical, and world music, and has played upright bass for several performers in the indie-rock scene, including Josh Rouse, Rebecca Stout, and Jennifer Niceley.

No Place Pacific is two young guys from Ithaca, New York who have been driving around in a 2002 Ford Ranger, busking and playing gigs at coffee shops and bars, sneaking into places that have a piano to make stealth recordings, and generally having a good time.  Their music is a mix of pop, rock, and blues, with witty originals and covers of songs from Muddy Waters to the Kings of Leon.  They play acoustic guitar and a drum kit made from a suitcase.

The Drifter Sisters are Robin Fischer on fiddle, Allegra Thompson on vocals, guitar, and standup bass, and Hailey Pexton on vocals, guitar, and mandolin.  The trio gravitates toward the songs of George Jones, Buck Owens, Rose Maddox, and Hazel Dickens, especially the ones with rhythm-driven melodies and off-color lyrics, as well as old time fiddle tunes and bluegrass classics.  These Bay Area natives have cherry-picked music blends faux-intellectualism and a deep love of silliness.

Catch a new wave of great young entertainers tonight at the Freight.
