Cafe Vaquera with Calamity Jane


March 30, 2010. Jeffrey Frederick would have been 60 today, if he was still amongst the living. He lives on, of course, through his great songs and restored recordings put together by Kathryn Frederick, his widow, and Frederick Productions.

Tonight we shall celebrate Jeffrey's 60th with a Cafe Vaquera Dance Party! Roll up the rug! Fill up the jug!


Here's a cool photo of Jeffrey and Corky! RIP both of you talented gentlemen.

Cafe Vaquera with Calamity Jane


I was quite flattered when a woman came up to me the other evening at a music event in Wheeler. She said she was a big Cafe Vaquera fan, listening in her car as she heads home from rehearsal on Tuesday nights. It turns out she plays cello in the North Coast Symphony Orchestra. (Might not be the exact name.) We got to talking about the cello and we are seeing more and more of it's footprint at the indie and bluegrass festivals. This show features some great cello numbers. Enjoy...
