03/30/19 - “Salty Suites” with “The Rose Valley Thorns”

MATINEE! The cutting edge of strings and song. A perfect show. Many, many times here and for a reason. Salty Suites with The Rose Valley Thorns.

Salty Suites: Scott Gates, Chuck Hailes and Chelsea Williams live in the world of live acoustic music, sharing a passion for roots and bluegrass, as well as traditional mountain music.

Scott Gates is as close to a musical prodigy on the mandolin as you will ever meet and now plays guitar with the same fire and brilliance. Scott, an incredible performer has been a mainstay at festivals and stages throughout the southwest for many years and holds a special place in his heart for people he sees year after year. Having performed all over the country and with artists as varied as John McEuen, Nathan McEuen, Ed Helms, Steve Martin, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Loggins and a virtual Who's-Who of bluegrass players, Scott appeared last year on the Ellen Show with Steve Martin, recorded with Kenny Loggins on his soon-to-be-released family album, which was picked up by Disney, appeared in an episode of the 2011 season of "Justified" on the FX Channel.

Partner in this new venture, Chuck Hailes, is one of the top bass players in the country, schooled in classical and jazz bass playing and techniques. With his background in bluegrass music, and degree in the Upright Bass, Chuck sings and plays in a way that is uniquely his own.

Chelsea Williams has been writing and performing her own music since she was 13 years old. While some of her early songs are still hits with her fans, she has continued to develop as a writer penning nearly 100 original songs to date. Chelsea currently makes her living by playing on the street for tips and selling a home-made demo, having sold thousands of CDs in recent months, one-by-one, simply on her own on the street. Her magnetic presence draws them in and her songs set the hook.

Together they are simply amazing and electrifying, The Salty Suites ask you to lend them your ears…..and they won’t give them back. They are like that.

The Rose Valley Thorns are a bluegrass and progressive bluegrass band founded in Ojai, California. Joshua Bergmann, Jared Bergmann, and Corey Highberg have combined their eclectic musical backgrounds to put their efforts into modern bluegrass, paying homage to traditional bluegrass legends, as well as taking steps forward with their unique original material.
