Yes, gift shop tickets are back!!

St. Patrick’s Day comes early to the Big Room!!

Lúnasa and Tim O’Brien embark on a transatlantic journey exploring the common roots, interplay and mutual influences at the heart of American and Irish music.

Lúnasa, described by the Associated Press as “the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet,” joins forces with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien (“one of my favorite singers” — Mark Knopfler) (“one of my all time favorite performers, period” - Bob Littell) in a rich and exciting concert of trans-Atlantic collaboration.

Lúnasa features all-Ireland champions like fiddler Sean Smyth and other world-class players, including veterans of The Waterboys and Donal Lunny’s Coolfin. O’Brien’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Garth Brooks, the Dixie Chicks, and other Nashville heavyweights.

Together they explore the rich and exciting connection between Appalachian music and its updated Irish ancestry.

Blame Sally

Tickets go on sale February 4th at 10 AM and they’re available at http://www.sierranevada.com/brewery/california/big-room or in person at the gift shop.

Big Room favorites Blame Sally are back and they’ve poised and ready to kick some serious musical butt!

“Blame Sally are the best all female four piece band that I have ever heard on record… They are highly skilled musicians when it comes to their instrumental licks and all four are tremendous songwriters and lead vocalists with their harmonies being just about unmatchable!” - americanrootsuk.com

“Blame Sally brings you everything from stompboxes to fiddles, as they weave their magic in a tapestry of musical delight. And don’t for a minute think of them as a folk band as they add a little bit of rock, and a whole lotta heart into each and every performance, blending the different genres into a melodic work of art.”

“Their live performances are more than just a musical journey, as they banter back and forth with each other in between songs as only true friends can do, making for a very entertaining evening.”

- Randy Miramontez, Sacramento Press

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Get your tickets early as the dance floor is open.

Achilles Wheel

Tickets go on sale February 18th at 10 AM and they’re available at http://www.sierranevada.com/brewery/california/big-room or in person at the gift shop.

The Rock/Roots monster out of Nevada City that is Achilles Wheel once again will bring their high energy brand of rock and Dead inspired jams to the Big Room. This is a band that’s on the move and it’s only a matter of time before they just explode on the national sceen. And, I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here is a review of their show from this years High Sierra Festival.

“I caught the Achilles Wheel set at the Big Meadow. These guys are bound for greatness so make sure to check them out while they still play smaller venues. I give these guys one more year before we see them headlining venues like The Fillmore in San Francisco. Their honest and homespun approach to rock is infectious as noted by the swaying crowds. I can’t get enough of the Wheel!” - Michael Pegram JBO (Jam Bands Online)

If you like to dance and you have plenty of energy, we’ll see you there.
