Root Cellar Triple CD Release Party

Event Date: 
Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 7:00pm

Encouraged in his late teens by Sir George Martin and recently by Ray Davies, Jeff Root has enjoyed the relentless pursuits of independence & innovation in songwriting and audio production; all while urging and assisting others to do likewise.

This year, Root Cellar Productions is proud to host a triple CD release for two amazing independent artists as well as his own latest CD, "The Wild Fandango".

Marty Nestor - CD: "Saint of the Highway" - Now collaborating with Jeff Root, he is proud to present his third original independent CD, a melting pot of folk, rock, blues & alt-country.

Jane Fallon - CD: "Tangled In A Tree" - Her fifth CD, featuring Steve Gilligan (The Stompers), Jeff Root, Tom Ruckey, Kenny Selcer, Rob Carlson & Bob Francis, combines literate lyrics and upbeat arrangements, blending folk, blues, & country with rock and pop.

Jeff Root - CD: "The Wild Fandango" - Jeffs latest features four tunes which were initiated at the suggestion of the great Ray Davies as it explores the themes of passion and mortality and features collaborations with Johnny Steinberg, Sam Perry, Tom Short and local writers Mark Frederick Fisher, Zack Root & Pam Craven.

Gayle Picard - opener - Gayle bridges the gap between folk and rock. Equally at home with a fingerstyle ballad or with a rhythm driven boot-stomper, she is presently working on her fifh solo CD.

Jon McAuliffe - opener - Jon recorded 2 LPs for Warner Reprise in the '70s with the band Thirty Days Out, served as staff songwriter for United Artists, worked with, recorded or opened for Robin Batteau, Emmylou Harris, Tim Hardin, The Beach Boys and many more.
