Pick a day


Tuesday, May 14, 2013's Lowdown

The hardest working man in Humboldt show bidness Chris Parreira brings singer/songwriter Eilen Jewell to the Arcata Playhouse this Tuesday evening. Traveling down the same musical roads as Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, Jewell mixes vintage country and contemporary folk flavors, a concoction you can taste on her latest release Queen of the Minor Key

If you need proof that Jewell is worth your entertainment dollar, check out the video for her song "Warning Signs" below and/OR tune in to KHUM 104.3/104.7 today to hear her live before she treks up to Arcata tonight. Larry estimates three-ish.
