This Festival event will be the Third Annual Bluegrass, Old Time & Americana Music & Art Event venue will be held at the Cedar Crest Vineyards in Manton CA. This is a day full of great bands, beautiful views, great food, local wines and craft beers; this family fun event is guaranteed to be about 10 degrees cooler than anything that is going on down in the valley. Come and enjoy the fun and help us support Old Time, Old Time Fiddling, Bluegrass and Traditional American Acoustic Music & Education in the North State.

 

*Band Line-up for the Day will be as follows*

 

*Wood & Wire: “It’s been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the fertile musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s “band-style” ethos are not a mystery. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeates their sound. That being said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.”

*One Button Suit:
One Button Suit is an exciting, Sacramento-based string band with a repertoire of originals and bluegrass familiars hinting at unconventionality.

Band members:
Tim Tobias – vocals, guitar
Tom Shewmake – mandolin, vocals
Melissa Lincoln – fiddle, vocals
Brian Burke – guitar, vocals
Casey Lipka – bass, vocals

*The Rock Ridge Bluegrass Band*
Rock Ridge is a bluegrass band from N. California. Their performances and recorded material include traditional & contemporary bluegrass, some originals, old time country, and gospel music with top notch vocals and instrumentation. The band’s debut CD, Drifter’s Prayer, has received praise and airplay across the US and abroad.

*The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers*
Foot stomping dance music from the Klamath Mountains.
The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers are an energetic dance band from the Klamath Mountains who pull from a variety of traditions, like alt-country, old-timey, polka, jazz, delta blues, – but maintain a unique sound of their own. Our goal is to perform fun dance songs that make people want to get up and strut their stuff. Our shows are hillbilly kitsch; with a disco light, fog machine, other theatric stage props and dance prizes.

*Honeybee jazz*
Sweet Violin and Guitar Jazz from the 1920’s & 30’s
Jazz music was born in America between world wars, an economic boom and a great depression, as an amalgamation of traditional American musical styles. The honeybee is a Northern California jazz duo that captures the sounds and feel of Vintage Jazz in its original vibe – with emphasis on lyrical melody, dynamic harmony, and smooth rhythm using sweet vocals, violin and guitar. Honeybee performs Vintage Jazz tunes in that authentic vintage style – the song is the star!

*The HappBees*
The “Sweethearts of the SMMAF” The HappBees will be back to steal your hearts away this year. These three little Dolls are sure to Pull at your Heartstrings as they play on their fiddles!

*Also Appearing:

*Honeybee Jazz

Sweetie’s Cafe and Catering/Roquitos Taqueria

Redding California is a great place to find a tasty bite to eat, and when I asked around about a Good Mom N’Pops feel of a Restaurant Cafe, I kept hearing Sweetie’s Cafe and Taqueria South market street. Also, a convenient location to find, right off Highway 273. Easy to see the sign on the road that said, Sweetie’s upon entrance into Sweetie’s Cafe and Taqueria, I noticed a great smelling taco truck sitting outside of the cafe, along with a smoker full of tri-tip billowing with yummy flavor! I walked into the restaurant and was immediately greeted by a friendly smile, a handshake and welcome. I introduced Myself and asked if I might be able to speak with the owner(s). That is when I met Mr. and Mrs. Roque Carbajal and Tiferet Carbajal, more friendly and warm smiles to greet me! As we all sat down at a table to talk, I couldn’t help but feel the welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere in the restaurant, it had a “homelike” feel to it.
Why did you start this business I asked?
“Needed an outlet for my taco addiction.” Mr. Carbajal giggled! Of course, I had to chuckle with them a bit about that!
What makes your business different? Did you have any special Training? “No,” just lots of experience and amazing recipes Roque replied, ” Nobody likes a mean burrito, but everyone like a happy taco! haha, We make smiles happen one taco at a time, and we are authentically delicious!”

“To help folks conquer their hunger with yummy goodness! Sweetie’s Cafe & Catering focuses on quality of food, customer service and cleanliness of their restaurant. “You can’t say Sweetie’s without a smile!”
“Life, just learning as they went along in life” such a simple, yet Complete answer I thought, humbling even.
What would you say as of to date, your best selling, product, service, food, drink and why?
