The 2017 Twisted Folk Summer Concert Series features a fantastic array of range of musical styles: We've got Bluegrass, Cajun, Jazz, two world-class slide guitarists – and quite a few things in between – all for your entertainment! All of this is happening at our scenic hilltop venue for your listening and wine-loving pleasure!
Tickets are now available for all shows. Visit www.twistedoak.com/concerts for information and prices. We encourage everyone to purchase tickets in advance and not be disappointed by a sold out show.
The complete schedule:
Saturday, May 13 – The Dustbowl Revival – A crowd favorite, returning to kick off the concert series for the second year in a row! Swing. Hot Jazz. Pre-war Blues. A genre-hopping, time bending dance party! Dubbed the “Best live band in LA!” by the LA Weekly.
Saturday, May 27 – Jerry Douglas presents the Earls of Leicester – Jerry Douglas is generally considered to be the best dobro player in the whole world and recipient of fourteen Grammy Awards, most recently with the Earls nabbing the Best Bluegrass Album award. And they are the International Bluegrass Music Association “Entertainer of the Year” for 2016. What more can we say?
Saturday, June 24 – Front Country – What can you say about a band whose influences include “Bill Monroe, Paul Simon, Prince, and King Crimson”? Progressive bluegrass straight out of Nashville by way of San Francisco!
Saturday, July 8 – Pine Leaf Boys - Rockin' old-school Cajun music from deep south Louisiana! Four-time Grammy Nominees!
Saturday, July 22 – John Jorgenson Quintet – Another crowd favorite, returning to the Oak! Smooth Gypsy Jazz in the style of Django Reinhart, and beyond!
Saturday, August 12 – Sonny Landreth – Slide guitar and blues legend known as "The King of Slydeco."
