Event Details

Free Range Fridays: Honky Tonk Live Music Night | Richmond Dist.

Free Range Fridays features live, acoustic music by some of the Bay Area’s finest Americana performers. The series is hosted by Jeanie and Chuck Poling, longtime contributors to the local folk/country/bluegrass scene. Free Range Fridays attracts many great artists who play for the sheer joy of sharing their music with a crowd that really appreciates it. Plus, they’ve had some awesome special guests show up – no promises, but rumor has it that past cameos include Jimmie Dale Gilmore (true) and Robert Plant (false, but we love how rumors we started get back to us as fact).

It’s not just a show, it’s a pocket festival that will pull heartstrings, induce belly laughter, and get that brain thinkin’ mighty powerful thoughts. All FRF shows are free and are part of their continuing effort to keep alive San Francisco’s tradition of coffeehouse entertainment. Shows are presented roughly every three months.

Featured performers on January 17, 2014 are Evie Ladin/Evil Diane, plus tweener act Alisa Rose and Yoseff Tucker.

Evie Ladin (along with her malevolent twin Evil Diane) is known to many fans for her longtime stint with the Stairwell Sisters; Evie sings, she writes songs, she plays banjo and guitar, she dances, she teaches, she calls square dances, and she performs body music with her husband Keith Terry.

Yoseff and Alisa are both members of Supermule, an awesome band that combines bluegrass, New Orleans jazz, soul, and other wholesome ingredients to produce a lively musical experience. Alisa has displayed remarkable versatility as a fiddler/violinist, at one point playing simultaneously in the bluegrass quartet 49 Special (2009 Rockygrass Festival band competition winner) and the Real Vocal String Quartet (2009 Grammy nomination).
