“It’s like I never heard music before.”

“I didn’t know music could be like that.”

"Arguably one of the best concerts I've ever seen."

Donna Lynn Caskey is an innovative clawhammer “Banjo Gal,” as she is known, and so much more. A strong songwriter, her work simultaneously acknowledges life’s difficulties and offers a genuine message of hope. Her sound retains a timeless quality that hearkens back to traditional old-time mountain music and bluegrass while artfully exploring contemporary subject matter.

Our listening concerts are cash-only at the door, but seat reservations can be made at modestounplugged@yahoo.com or by calling 209-543-5306. Kids 12 and younger get in free. Doors open thirty minutes prior to showtime.

With thoughtfully arranged originals and covers, Boscoe’s Brood treats audiences to a sound that's soft-spoken, fast-moving, harmonic and laced with the delicate touch of a loop. An accomplished guitarist and vocalist, Sus Corez’s repertoire is expanded by switching between regular and open guitar tunings. Admittedly under the influence of Joni and Dylan, she’s a real crowd pleaser.
