Sooj joins Sharon Knight & Winter
Air and Fire, a Mystical Bazaar
13136 State Route 9
Boulder Creek, CA 95006
$20 advance,$25 at the door
Get tickets here!

Sooj’s longtime friends Sharon Knight and Winter are allowing her to crash their Neofolk Romantique Full Moon Concert in Boulder Creek, CA! Join in the dance, and make it wild!

Sharon’s distinctive voice and striking poetry have won her a loyal following across the country. Together with longtime collaborator Winter, she tours nationally several months out of the year, performing at festivals, masquerades, conventions, cafes, shops and house concerts. Their music has been heard on over 300 radio stations, enjoyed “top 10” status on MP3 and NAR charts, has been featured in three independent films, and captured the attention of major labels and independent labels alike. Sharon and Winter are the founding members of the gothic tribal folk metal band, Pandemonaeon, and they produce their own annual festival in California called Hexenfest. Winter has most recently played guitar on Blondie’s latest album “Ghosts of Download,” and has also produced and performed on Jessica Star’s new album, “Mystical Creature.”

Considering that Sharon and Winter’s music has been described as “folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates”, you can imagine the kind of fantastic fusion promised by a shared show between the three of us.

TUESDAY JULY 15 2014 – 8PM
Sooj & the Feckin’ Tinkers
Oberon’s Threepenny Tavern
45 North Main Street
Ashland, OR 97520

Friends of Sooj, the Feckin’ Tinkers are a Tuesday mainstay at Oberon’s Tavern – a lively duo comprised of Jeff “Dickens” Behrends on guitar and vocals, and Ingrid “Goblin Socks” Edstrom on bodhran drum and vocals. The infectious traditional and playfully modern Celtic music they play will have you stamping your feet and singing along!

Mischief is sure to be managed when we join forces! The Tinkers kick it up at 8pm, and I follow at 9pm, all for a donation of your choice! Come and join us at this unique and exceptional faery-friendly tavern in Ashland’s Downtown Plaza!

Oberon’s is a really nifty place, by the way. Here’s their website: http://oberonstavern.com/
