Local friends and fans, here is some happy news! Nina Gerber and Chris Webster are returning to the Mendocino Coast on Sunday, May 5. This concert is hosted by Community Center of Mendocino to benefit the lovely facility that offers after-school programs as well as many community events and classes.
Chris Webster and Nina Gerber have been performing in our area for many years, from Little River Inn to Caspar Community Center, in Point Arena at the Arena Theater and with Duo Quartet at Kate Wolf Music Festival. Chris Webster’s career began nearly two decades ago as a teen-aged lead singer for one of California's best-known regional acts (Mumbo Gumbo). She boasts a successful resume highlighted by four solo releases (Drive, Now Playing, Something in the Water, My Name is Christine) and one amazing traditional Bluegrass/Americana recording (The Webster's 10,000 Miles) with her sister Cassie and renowned guitarist Scott Nygaard. With astonishing power and passion, her voice reaches magical heights, yet effortlessly turns on a dime to deliver gut wrenching torch songs and gentle ballads.
Expressing through her hands, rather than to gain attention, it is this integrity which makes Nina Gerber’s expressions worth intent listening. Nina has performed and/or recorded with: Karla Bonoff, Peter Rowan, Nanci Griffith, Greg Brown, Mollie O'Brien, Laurie Lewis, and many others. "Nina's guitar style is wide and brave. She uses each of her guitars as if it's the one she was born to play. Acoustic or electric, she sounds beautiful, smoky, precise, and full of the licks you love to hear."
Be sure to make your plans for Sunday, May 5 to include the blend of talent you will experience and enjoy with Chris Webster and Nina Gerber. Doors open at 7pm with wine and snacks and concert starting at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 general admission, $25 for reserved seating.
