Paul Emery’s Nevada City LIVE! presents: Lula Wiles

Boston trio Lula Wiles celebrates the release of their latest CD at the historic Nevada Theatre on Wednesday, October 16 as part of Paul Emery’s Nevada City LIVE! Concert series.

Lula Wiles Instagram profile states, “We are a band. None of us is named Lula.”

Long before they were a band, Isa Burke, Eleanor Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin were singing folk songs and trading fiddle tunes at camp in Maine. “All of us were lucky to have access to the folk music community at a young age,” Burke says. “The music traditions that we’re drawing on are social, community-building traditions.” Members of Lula Wiles carry those early lessons of community and the meaning of shared art with them as they seek to create music that questions cultural virtues, soothes aching wounds, and envisions a better world.

Lula Wiles came of age in Boston, in the practice rooms of Berklee College of Music and the city’s lively roots scene. In 2016, the band self-released Lula Wiles, a sensitive, twang-tinged collection of originals. Since then, they have toured internationally, winning fans at the Newport Folk Festival and the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and sharing stages with the likes of Aoife O’Donovan, the Wood Brothers, and Tim O’Brien.

Now, the release of What Will We Do on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings places the group squarely in line with some of its deepest influences, from the protest anthems of Woody Guthrie to the trailblazing songs of Elizabeth Cotten and Hazel Dickens. (Even the band’s name is a twist on an old Carter Family song.)

The members of Lula Wiles knew how they wanted this record to feel: intimate, warm, with the edges left rough. “We really wanted this album to sound like three people making music in a room,” Buckland explains. The musicians take turns in different roles – Burke and Buckland on guitar and fiddle, Obomsawin on bass, all three singing – but no matter who’s playing what, they operate in close tandem. In carrying on the folk ritual of innovation, they infuse their songs with distinctly modern sounds: pop hooks, distorted electric guitars, and dissonant multi-layered vocals, all employed in the service of songs that reclaim folk music in their own voice.

At its core, What Will We Do is an album centered around songcraft. The lyrics are sharp and the melodies finely wrought. You can hear, too, a growing maturity, a widening worldview. The songs speak to the issues of the day, even as they riff on folk music’s tropes. Sometimes the best thing to do with an old idea is to turn it upside down.

That’s not to say that no traditional material made it onto the album. The title track is an Irish ballad—although the band couldn’t resist adding a twist of their own. Says Burke, “We wrote the verse about marrying the banker and redistributing all his money.” Lula Wiles brings new perspective to age-old traditions – above all, the people’s practice of sharing their communities’ struggles through songs. The band exists in the tense space where tradition and revolution meet, from which their harmonies rise into the air to create new American music.

Boston trio Lula Wiles celebrates the release of their latest CD at the historic Nevada Theatre on Wednesday, October 16 as part of Paul Emery’s Nevada City LIVE! Concert series.

“In an age where so much music feels trite and phoned in, Lula Wiles emerges with their own unique blend of honest lyrics and gorgeous singing.” – Aoife O’Donovan

Michael Brown: a Mozart in the making comes to Grass Valley

Internationally acclaimed pianist Michael Brown knew from a young age that he wanted to be among the classical music greats. Thirty years of hard work and dedication have transformed his dream into a top place on the world stage as a pianist and composer. Brown brings his masterful skill to InConcert Sierra on Sunday, Oct. 20.

Brown is an artist with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS), an honor in the classical music world due to its high standards of excellence. Last season, InConcert presented a CMS ensemble which included Michael Brown, and his performance was noted by InConcert artistic director Ken Hardin.

As winner of the 2018 Emerging Artist Award from Lincoln Center and a 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Brown has been hailed in the international media for his refined musicianship and for being “one of the leading figures in the current renaissance of performer-composers,” according to the New York Times.

“My musical life began at the age of two as I danced in front of the TV to the songs of Raffi,” Brown said. “By age three, I had listened to Billy Joel’s Piano Man so many times that I wore out the cassette tape. At four, I realized I wanted to be the reincarnation of Mozart so I embarked upon a life of exploration, some isolation, but mostly pure and utter joy.”

Brown’s program for his Oct. 20 solo concert features a combination of his original award-winning compositions “Surfaces (2016)” commissioned by the Shriver Hall Concert Series and “Folk Variations (2013),” commissioned by American Pianist Association Fellow Adam Golka, alongside timeless classical masterpieces such as Haydn’s “Fantasia in C Major,” Mendelssohn’s “Variations sérieuses,” Ravel’s “Jeux d’eau,” and “Bartók’s “Out of Doors.”

“Michael is an exciting artist to follow on the international chamber music scene,” said InConcert Sierra Artistic Director Ken Hardin. “He brings incredible artistry to both composition and performance. I am delighted to present him as a solo artist and believe our audience is going to really enjoy this riveting young talent!”

His performance begins at 2 p.m. on Oct. 20, with a pre-concert forum at 1:15 p.m. “The forum offers a great opportunity for the audience and Brown to get to know each other in advance of the concert and offer insight to his program and career,” Hardin said.

Tickets are $38 for general admission and are available by phone at 530-273-3990, online at (ticketing fees may apply), in person at BriarPatch Co-op and also at the door on the day of the performance. There are a limited number of free youth passes for those 5-17, available with the purchase of a general admission ticket. Please call 530-273-3990 to arrange in advance.

The concert is at the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 12889 Osborne Hill Road, Grass Valley. For more information, please call 530-273-3990 or visit

Baja Princess at Off Broadstreet Theatre

Sail the waters of Baja California aboard the Azure Seas Cruise Line’s flagship Baja Princess with the fabulous entertainers from Galt, CA. OBS favorites Micah Cone, Danny McCammon, Kate Haight and Tina Marie Kelley star in this madcap comedy about small town amateur performers who are clearly “out of their depth” as lounge entertainers aboard a discount Mexican cruise. But “The show must go on,” and these intrepid wannabes keep trying to get it right! Each night of the four-day cruise, with their jobs on the line, this plucky band of misfits tries to offer unique lounge entertainment; switching first from a Latin Fiesta theme to Golden Oldies, to improbable Celebrity Impressions to an all-out Free-For-All on the final night. All while dealing with claustrophobia, insomnia, allergies and an increasingly hostile management. Music selections are all over the map; from La Bamba and The Macarena, to The Beatles and Supremes to Stevie Wonder and Dolly Parton to Kenny Loggins, Jefferson Airplane and KISS. Directed by Baja Princess Alumnus and familiar OBS actor Andrew Kerr, the musical features tons of laughs galore. Baja Princess is the perfect party night for September & October!

Pre-show entertainment is provided by Chris Crockett beginning one hour before show time for all performances. For further information or for show reservations, please call OFF BROADSTREET at (530) 265-8686 or visit the OFF BROADSTREET website at



Sierra Stages is pleased to present “A PLAY IN 2 DAYS!”, a two-day children’s theatre workshop on Friday & Saturday, October 25 & 26 at the Sierra Stages Rehearsal Studio in Grass Valley. Kids will experience the excitement of producing a play from start to finish – in just two days! Everyone will be involved in all aspects of production starting with auditions and ending with a performance for friends and family.

“A PLAY IN 2 DAYS!” is directed by Paulette Gilbert and designed for children ages 7-15. The workshop begins at 10:00 am and continues until 3:30 pm on both days. The workshop fee is $95.00, and it is easy to register online at or by phone at 530.346.3210. Registration closes on Friday, October 11, and enrollment in the workshop is limited to 20 kids. A limited number of scholarships are available.

“A PLAY IN 2 DAYS” is a follow-up to two successful “A PLAY IN A DAY” workshops offered by Sierra Stages in 2017. Since then, parents have been urging Gilbert to bring back the workshop. After much consideration, she decided to so, but this time, there is an extra day for participants to make the performance even more amazing! The workshop includes all aspects of play production, including auditions, blocking, rehearsal techniques, character building, working with costumes and props, and putting all these elements together to make a play.

Gilbert is choosing a script that will be fun and challenging for all levels of theatrical experience. “Kids should participate in the workshop because theatre is great, doing a play is great, and doing it all in two days is something new and different,” she says. “The kids will meet actors from other schools and groups, and make something memorable together.”

Paulette Gilbert has worked with children for nearly 30 years as a teacher, actor and director. She holds a BA in Early Childhood Education and a Masters degree in Theatre from Louisiana Tech University. Her extensive experience with professional companies across the country includes a national tour with the Missoula Children’s Theatre. For the past 12 years, she’s been teaching and producing theatre for young people in Nevada County. She directed eight Children’s Theatre Ensemble productions for Center Stage Dance Studio, performed at the North Star House. Gilbert is also a professional Costume Designer, primarily for the B Street Theatre in Sacramento. Locally she designs for Sierra Stages, most recently Cabaret.

Sierra Stages is a tax-exempt nonprofit community theatre based in western Nevada County with a mission to provide quality productions that are affordable and accessible to everyone. Since it began in 2008, Sierra Stages has presented 38 plays and musicals at various venues in Grass Valley and Nevada City, including two productions – “Stone Soup” and “The Quiltmaker’s Gift” – that toured to local elementary schools.

“Give Me Liberty” at the Nevada Theatre – Sunday, October 13th, 2019

On Sunday, October 13th, Sierra Cinemas/Nevada Theatre Film Series presents “Give Me Liberty” at 7pm at the Nevada Theatre.

Medical transport driver Vic is late, but it’s not his fault. Roads are closed for a protest, and no one else can shuttle his Russian grandfather and émigré friends to a funeral. The new route uproots his scheduled clients, particularly Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer in a breakout performance), a vibrant young woman with ALS. As the day goes from hectic to off-the-rails, their collective ride becomes a hilarious, compassionate, and intersectional portrait of American dreams.

“This film is tremendous… What it pulls off is a little miracle.” Christy Lemire, FilmWeek

“Give Me Liberty is a full-blown farce on wheels, a master class in controlled, escalating chaos.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

The film is being shown at 7pm (with doors opening at 6:30) and admission is $8. For more information, to view the trailer, or to purchase advance tickets, visit

Animal Place to Host First Annual Community Day

Animal Place, a non-profit farmed animal sanctuary, is inviting Nevada County residents to the first annual Community Day.

Nestled on 600 acres on McCourtney Road, Animal Place provides permanent sanctuary to hundreds of rescued farmed animals, from cows to chickens. Though the organization has been around since 1989 and in Grass Valley since 2010, it is not uncommon to hear, “We drive by a lot but don’t really know what Animal Place is.”

Community Day is a free, family-friendly event on Saturday, October 12, from 11 a.m. to2 p.m. to give members of the community a look into what life is like at one of the oldest and largest sanctuaries in the country.

Not only does Animal Place look after the physical, emotional, and psychological health of its animal residents, but it is also an advocacy and education center for its human visitors.

In addition to a free vegan lunch, kid-friendly games, and live jazz music,visitors can learn about Animal Place’s residential intern program, volunteer opportunities, humane education campaigns, and visit the on-site museum — but the highlight of the day is that barns will be open from 12-1:30 p.m.

With open barns, visitors can meet animals like Belle (pictured above), a friendly nine-year old goat who came from a dairy farm, and Timi, a rabbit who was one of more than forty rabbits confiscated by San Francisco Animal Control from a home that was selling them online.

Survey results from 2019 show that ninety percent of tour guests would recommend it too thers and Community Day presents the opportunity to experience it for free!For more information, visit

About the Artist:

My passion for art came early in my childhood from my grandmother. She is my inspiration and always will be. After high school I enrolled in The Modern College of Design in Dayton, Ohio and began my journey.  Learning to create eventually taught me that art comes from the soul. It was the feelings of the soul I wanted to explore and share in my art.

But life doesn’t always follow a straight path. As a new wife and mother, my art was used to make a living. I worked as a graphic design artist for 20 years when my husband said, it’s time… And it was. It took leaving Sierra Heritage Magazine as the Creative Director to realize that I’ve been in front of a computer for too long… time to get back in front of a canvas. It’s time to share my soul — the joy, the intensity, the sadness, the humor, the awareness, the weakness and the strength.  The feelings.

You will see from much of my work that I have a special devotion to the animal kingdom. What incredible beings they are. I want to touch their souls like they touch mine. I see in these amazing creatures the feelings that we all share; the feelings we have in common with all life on this earth. One of my favorite subjects is memorials for pet lovers to treasure forever.

My goal is to create art that people can feel; inside and outside. Go ahead… touch my paintings. And then, I hope they touch you back!

Paul Emery’s Nevada City LIVE! Presents: A Woman for Our Time

October 10, 11 and 12, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, October 13th, at 2:00 pm.

Drama, music and global heroines of the 19th century will grace the stage when Paul Emery’s Nevada City LIVE! presents A Woman for Our Time.

It’s the story of a synchronized thrust toward emancipation and human rights in the 19th century which finds its zenith with the first women of the 1840s to advance equality and sacrifice for the common good.

Playwright Teresa Henkle Langness says, “Today is an important time for women. Conversations around the world community are honoring the role of women. Historically, this is nothing new.” She points out that women in the 19th century laid the groundwork for current conversations about education and equality. “We recall the Suffragettes who eventually succeeded in getting women the vote, but this was even earlier,” She says. “Both men and women enjoy benefits today because of the work of these women.”

Táhirih is the most famous female poet in Persian literature, the first Middle Eastern feminist, and the first woman to join the Bábí religious movement. In the 1840s she sacrificed her life to transcend the restrictions normally placed on women in traditional society. One of her most notable quotes are her final words, “You can kill me as soon as you like, but you cannot stop the emancipation of women.”

The play follows the journey of Táhirih’s maid (Renee Sprattling) who travels the world meeting influential women of the time.

Directed by Michael Gottlieb, the original musical drama highlights parallels between Margaret Fuller (Emerald Stara), Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Jill Gottlieb), Sojourner Truth (Renee Murray Smith), Lucretia Mott (Wendy Greene), Nana Asma’u (Artemis Arthur), and the Persian poet Tahirih (Ariel Elliott). (Chiana McCrea plays Tahirih as a child.) Leading men include John Watson, Mike Ferguson, Bruce Baynard, Skylar Mims, and Sawyer Maddux.

Music co-directors Sage Arias, Kate Canon, Nancy Lee Harper and Beverly Marks join the orchestra and band of troubadours, also featuring Kelly Fleming, Jane Sinclair and Alexandra Roedder, with Maggie McKaig as Music Advisor.

The performances will take place at the Nevada Theater, 401 Broad Street on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 10, 11 and 12, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, October 13th, at 2:00 pm.

“Aquarela” at the Nevada Theatre – Sunday, October 6th, 2019

On Sunday, October 6th, Sierra Cinemas/Nevada Theatre Film Series presents “Aquarela” at 7pm at the Nevada Theatre.

“Aquarela” takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at a rare 96 frames-per-second, the film is a visceral wake-up call that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth’s most precious element.

From the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela’s mighty Angels Falls, water is AQUARELA’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling visual detail.

“This is an almost meditative experience. You feel at times you should be watching ‘Aquarela’ in lotus position. The overwhelming visuals and the natural sounds of water traveling are blissfully engaging.” Brandon Judell, Huffington Post

 The film is being shown at 7pm (with doors opening at 6:30) and admission is $8. For more information, to view the trailer, or to purchase advance tickets, visit
