About Sierra Weight Loss
At Sierra Weight Loss in Grass Valley, we treat obesity as a chronic disease of
abnormal energy storage and not a lack of willpower. Patients understand that even if
they lose weight, they will always be an obese person in a thinner body and at risk for
regain.
One of the first principles participants learn is that “weight loss is not the cure for
obesity.” Effective lifetime weight management requires absorbing new concepts of
nutrition, activity and conflict-resolution, then utilizing a new battery of problem-solving
skills to implement and shape new behaviors.
Because most commercial diet centers only focus on the diet, they provide some
combination of products — special foods, supplements, lectures and so on. Few, if any,
actually offer a program that identifies and changes the behaviors that contribute to your
being overweight in the first place. Our programs will help you overcome the avoidance
and denial that have made and kept you overweight. While you’re losing weight you’ll
receive professional help and be held accountable for your actions. Clinical studies have
shown that accountability and behavioral counseling are effective tools in weight loss and
they are the cornerstone of Sierra Weight Loss’s program.
After reaching goal weight, our aftercare program, known as “Compass”, allows
individuals to practice weight management skills with support, guidance and
accountability, which includes new challenges like adapting activity to the weather or the
complex situations that tend to occur around food during the holidays, vacations and
social events. Data from Sierra Weight Loss follow-up studies show that the most
successful long-term maintainers of lower weight bodies complete a minimum of 12-18
months in Compass before reducing the frequency of their weekly contact. Over 80% of
those patients who stick with the entire program are successful in avoiding regain long-
term.
The weight management programs at Sierra Weight Loss are designed to help you
reduce obesity “risk factors” (the elements in your lifestyle which endanger your health),
and help you improve your chances to live a long and healthful life through lifetime
weight management.
Some of our weight maintenance tips:
1. Don’t Use Food to Stabilize Your Moods
2. Keep a Well-stocked Pantry and Set Grocery Shopping List
3. Don’t Eat in the Car
4. Use Smaller Plates, Utensils, Tall, Skinny Glasses
5. Only Eat What You Bring to Work
6. Eat a Small Snack Prior to Any Social Outing Revolving Around Food
7. If Eating Alone is a Trigger – DON’T!
8. Track Your Alcohol Consumption…a 4 oz. glass of dessert wine is 200 calories
9. Consume 3/4 of your calories before 5 p.m.
10. Never, ever give up.

T
o the bluegrass community, it doesn’t matter
how you came to like the music. They fgure
once you’ve been bitten by the bug, you’re in.
For Rick Cornish, it happened purely by accident.
“Thirty-eight years ago, I had a friend who played
harmonica, I played guitar and we used to play the
blues together,” he said. “The guy calls me one day
at work and says ‘Listen, whatever you’re planning
this weekend, forget it, because we are going to a
bluegrass festival. There’s blues and grass and, to
make it even better, it’s in Grass Valley.’”
The two drove up on the Friday afternoon of
the second Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival in 1977,
fully expecting to join a hemp-loving, Howlin’ Wolf-
worshipping pack of blues hounds. They set up camp
and when the music started that evening they knew
instantly that it was not blues.
“I had no idea what bluegrass was,” Cornish said.
“The Beverly Hillbillies were about it for me.
But I was immediately smitten by the bluegrass
bug in a very, very big way. It changed my entire life;
no exaggeration, my entire life has been formed
from that early evening experience in 1977, which
was purely a mistake, an accident.”
Cornish, who lives in Sonora, joined the California
Bluegrass Association (CBA) and served as its CEO
for 11 years, before stepping down two years ago.
He has not missed a Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival
since he frst stepped foot in the Nevada County
Fairgrounds nearly four decades ago.
Bluegrass state
With 3,000 members, the CBA services the area
from the Oregon border to Bakersfeld.
“We don’t do anything south of the Grapevine
because there are fve different bluegrass
organizations that have Southern California carved
up pretty well,” he said.
They don’t, however, have the kind of membership
that the CBA does, nor do they hold “the foremost
bluegrass festival on the West Coast,” according
to Cornish, who said the local event is certainly the
oldest in California, and defnitely the purest.
“We have a festival that features almost exclusively
traditional bluegrass and what’s called old time
music,” he said. “We don’t do any other kind of
music and we do almost no bluegrass except for
traditional. That’s wasn’t necessarily unique 35 years
ago, but gradually most of the festivals have morphed
into ones that are primarily about bluegrass but have
other kinds of music.”
He said that festival planners can automatically
increase the gate by 30-40 percent by having simply
one big name country act.
“Most promoters can’t pass that up,” he said.
“It’s more than a temptation; it’s become a fnancial
reality. We have been able to duck that by hook or
crook.”
One way they have found to survive is not to
compete with their Southern California counterparts
but to work with them. The Huck Finn Festival, east of
Los Angeles, also takes place on Father’s Day.
“That has been advantageous for us,”
roudly Strictly Bluegrass
P
father’s day festival is foremost on the coast
By Paul Cambra | Foothills Entertainer
“Old Time music is a communal type of music,
mainly played for one’s own pleasure, sitting on the
porch with friends and neighbors and at dances,”
he said. “By contrast, bluegrass is generally a more
performance oriented music. Often the structure of
the songs feature playing the melody, the musicians
then play solos on banjo and mandolins.”
Ragged But Right, whose members all live in Grass
Valley, will play on the main stage for the frst time this
year. They consider themselves an old time version of
a jam band, a bit unique in their improvisational style.
“We are not the type of band that creates an
arrangement and that’s the end of it,” he said. “We
create the song fresh every performance. While the
melody and all that is structured, within that we do a
lot of rhythmic counter play, a lot of syncopation. We
leave all that open for each performance.”
While they share a history and many of the same
instruments (fddle and banjo form the basis for old
time; banjo and mandolin for bluegrass), the styles
and techniques are quite different, as Lyerly explains.
“The bluegrass style is three fngers using picks,” he
said. “Thumb picking down, two fngers up in a pattern.
Old Time is defned by ‘frailing’ or clawhammer, all
down strokes. We use an open back banjo, for a warm
organic sound, a ‘bum-tiddy’ rhythm.”
24/7 jam
The fddle had its roots in Irish and Scottish ancestry;
the banjo was an African instrument. The melding
happened in the South, when the two cultures lived in
close proximity and heard each other. Nowadays, walk
through the Nevada County Fairgrounds at any hour
of the day during Father’s Day weekend and you’ll be
hard-pressed not to hear a melding of melodies and
musicianship rising up from the legions of festival-goers.
“When the stage shuts down at 11 p.m. you can walk
through that property and fnd easily 35-40 different jams
going on simultaneously,” Cornish said. “There is always
a jam going on at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, a
week before it begins to the night it ends.”
The best part, he said, is you are sure to fnd a jam
suited to your skill level. And all are welcoming.
“It’s a participatory event,” he said. “The venue is
just a glorious, glorious spot on earth. The Ponderosa
pines, the lake … the place if just magical. Take that in
combination with the best available bluegrass talent
in the world that has been booked for four days, it’s a
winning combination.”
Elston likens it to a giant family reunion, where you
see folks you only see once or twice a year, usually
around bluegrass events.
“It gives people a sense of belonging to something
bigger than themselves,” he said. “It’s a family you’ve
chosen, not born into.”
By birth or by choice, the road to bluegrass is not
as important as the journey that begins once you’ve
arrived.

Cornish said. “They both go four days. We work
together behind the scenes and bring a band west
and split the weekend. We take them Thursday and
Friday, they have them Saturday and Sunday, or
reverse.”
And though their music is tied intrinsically to
Appalachia, bands are more than happy to hightail
it to the West Coast. It’s not just the appeal of
California — though that does play a huge part in it
— but most are aware that besides the D.C. metro
area, the San Francisco Bay Area is the second-
largest market for recorded bluegrass music in the
U.S.
“It’s a big deal,” Cornish said. “Big acts back
east know that they will do a better job with their
careers if they can attract the attention of fans out
here.”
The next generation
It’s not just the bands that worry about a fan base.
The CBA sees the writing on the wall and they’re
not LOL about it. The biggest challenge, according
to Cornish, is their membership demographic.
“We are getting old,” he said. “I am 66 and got
into the music 38 years ago. I was a young parent,
just exactly the member we are looking for now.”
Board member Montie Elston, from Marysville,
agrees. That’s why he feels the “Kids on Bluegrass”
program is so vital to their association.
“It’s the heart of us being able to continue
bluegrass into the future,” Elston said. “A way to
get kids involved. It’s a positive affrmation for their
music, whatever their level. Almost every kid gets
to perform onstage.”
Kids on Bluegrass began 25 years ago when
CBA member Frank Solivan put together a group
of young musicians to play on the main stage. Still
at it, Solivan meets with children 13-18 years old the
Thursday of the festival and by Friday they have an
hour set ready to perform.
“The kids, my goodness,” Elston said. “From
Frank Solivan’s own son, who was in the U.S. Navy
band, there are a number of alumni who are now
adults and have gone on to continue with music in
their lives. Not just bluegrass, sometimes in other
worlds. It’s amazing to see these people grow up.”
And become bluegrass fans, they hope. After
all, as Cornish freely admits, the music is not for
everybody.
“Bluegrass music is — people hate to hear me
say this — it is not universally enjoyed by people,”
he said. “It actually offends a lot of people. It’s
nasally, kind of old fashioned, there’s that whole
kind of redneck bigotry connotation to overcome.”
That being said, those who do fall for the folksy
fnger picking do so head frst.
“We don’t have a lot of casual members,”
Cornish said. “It’s like there’s a visceral connection
to that kind of music. For a small percentage of
people, there is something intrinsically compelling
and moving about the music. Not the schtick that
goes with it, not the cultural things, but the melody,
the blending of the lyrics, the story lines.”
Common roots
Besides the bluegrass, the Fathers’ Day Festival
also features what’s known as “Old Time” music,
a close cousin and constant companion. Jonathan
Lyerly, fddle player for Nevada County’s “hardest
working band,” Ragged But Right, explained
the subtle difference.

hey used to manufacture heavy machinery
here. Now they book heavy metal bands.
They made gate balls for the Hoover Dam.
Now it’s the scene of balls and proms and dances.
Steel beams that form the spire atop TransAmerica
Building were made here. Now, it’s memories that
are made here. Memories from the 47 weddings a
year, youth theater camps, dance classes, art shows
and live concerts that keep the halls of the Miners
Foundry Cultural Center bustling with 21st century
relevance.
“We believe that all the loving emotions people
feel at events, whether it’s a concert, a wedding, a
memorial, a prom or a nonproft fundraising event,
are absorbed by the walls and refected back on
each person who enters the Foundry,” said Gretchen
Bond, executive director. “Our rich history provides
us with a rich experience.”
A history that dates back to 1855, when the
Ironworks Foundry and Blacksmith Shop repaired
heavy machinery and hauled it to mining camps
by teams of horses and oxen. Of course, as with
many buildings of that era whose businesses were
built around fre, it burned down, only to be rebuilt
(and renamed Miners Foundry) and thrive as a steel
fabricator for industries far and wide.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that the building made
the transition from industrial to cultural, when two
graphic artists from San Francisco saved it
from demolition and turned the foundry into
a museum, creating a venue for the performing arts
and events in the process.
“In addition to cultural events, Foothill Theatre
Company, KVMR Radio and Music in the Mountains
were founded here,” Bond said. “Many changes
have happened inside the Foundry since the 1970s
— new roof, new restrooms, new stage with sound
and lights and most recently a new, 2,500-square-
foot dance foor in the Osborn/Woods Hall.”
Last month saw blues, reggae and a Celtic band
playing Grateful Dead music. This month it’s tributes
to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Bob Marley, with the
Wailers coming through to perform “Legend” in its
entirety.
Craft fairs, psychic fairs, plant sales and fashion
shows -- they’re all part of what keeps the Foundry
thriving as a centerpiece in the community.
“If you can dream it, the Miners Foundry can
be used in that way,” said operations manager
Cherylynn Allen. “My particular favorite way to use it
is with our big concert events, such as Fright Night or
Dark Star Orchestra. The space is so versatile; we can
accommodate more than 700 people in a dynamic
way. When the Stone Hall is flled with people, they
make magic with their presence, their intentions and
their energy.”
Lots of people means lots of business for the
community.
“The Miners Foundry brings a signifcant fnancial
viability to the entire county,” Allen said. “By
attending events here, our patrons bring business
to local restaurants, shops, bed-and-breakfast inns,
catering companies and rental companies.”
In 1990 the Foundry was donated to the Nevada
County Cultural Preservation Trust and designated
for cultural, historical, business, social and community
events. Rental options include the Stone Hall, Foyer,
Upper Gallery, Osborn/Woods Hall, Conference
Room and kitchen. But events alone are not enough
to cover the costs that a site like this incurs.
“Funding is a challenge,” Bond said. “While
we are very busy, and the building is used every
week of the year, we depend on donations

from the community to ensure we can continue to
preserve this community treasure. The Foundry is
a State Registered Historic Landmark and inside a
National Trust District — we are charged with not
only ensuring the Foundry is available for events and
for bringing arts and culture to the community, but
we are also responsible for the preservation of this
historic building. Rental income and ticket sales do
not cover the costs of running this unique landmark.”
Unique enough to appeal to many a bride-to-
be, as the Foundry hosts nearly a wedding a week.
And according to event coordinator Kat Kress,
each wedding is unique, as are the couples getting
married.
“We’ve had formal weddings, steampunk
weddings, cowgirl weddings, circus weddings,
and vintage weddings, just to name a few,” Kress
said. “Weddings are becoming increasingly more
personalized and the Foundry offers a rustic and
elegant setting that allows the unique taste and style
of each couple to shine through.”
Kress said she can’t think of any type of event that
hasn’t been held here or that they wouldn’t be open
to exploring.
“The founders of the Miners Foundry were
creative visionaries open to any idea that utilized
the space and created benefts for the community,”
Kress said. “We continue to honor their legacy by
carrying that tradition forward.”
The Foundry is on the historic walking tour of
Nevada City and has displays that interpret the
history from the days of the Maidu to present.
“Everyone who enters the Foundry can not only
see the history but they can feel it,” Bond said. “It’s
as though the stone walls in the Stone Hall can talk!”
If so, they might want to remind people that
the Foundry needs their support and they accept
donations of any size.
“The monthly option is a great way to support the
Foundry on a continual basis and is affordable for
nearly everyone,” Bond said. “There are more than
50,000 people that come through the building each
year and if 10 percent of them donated $5 a month
we would be able to further improve the building,
take risks on bigger shows and increase our small
staff. The Foundry is such an asset to the community
and it’s a great way to support us.”

oachella. Lollapalooza. Bonnaroo. Sasquatch. For those who think I’m
swearing at them in Portuguese … those are music festivals. Quite
famous ones if you’re well versed in this sort of thing. But what about
the lesser-known music festivals around the country? Who knows where Dillo
Day or Mucklewain take place? (Evanston, Ill., and Pinewood, Tenn.)
There are a couple of “gatherings” (Gathering of the Juggalos, Gathering of
the Vibes), a few that are quite up-front about things (Buzzfest, Buzz Bake Sale,
SmokeOut Festival) and some whose names are just plain silly (Kanrocksas,
Rocklahoma).
They’re also not limited to rock. There
are festivals devoted to classical (Mostly
Mozart Oregon Bach Festival) and country
(MerleFest, Texas Thunder, Downtown
Hoedown) and so on.
And what’s up with Newport? The tiny
town in the tinier state of Rhode Island
seems like it wants to corner the market on
music festivals. There’s the Newport Music
Festival, the Newport Jazz Festival, the
Newport Folk Festival and the Newport
Pop Festival, but that one’s in Costa Mesa.
Around here, some of you local folks
might have enjoyed Outside Lands in
Golden Gate Park, or Bottle Rock in Napa
or even Nerdapalooza in Eureka.
As for myself, you’d have to take all
of the bands from all of the “Day on the
Greens” I attended to even come close to
the lineup at one of these events. Bottle
Rock has 60 bands. Sixty!
But times have changes since I went to my one and only three-day music
festival in 1982: The US Festival in San Bernardino. Back then you only had
one stage, so the 20 acts that played were seen by everyone … who wasn’t
hanging out in the beer garden. I took a radio-station chartered bus down
there with a couple of buddies and set up a tent in a parking lot, along with
roughly a quarter-million other people on any given day. How we managed
to fnd that tent every night after the show as over, I still can’t fgure out. But
I can still recall the red dirt being kicked up in swarms as people danced to
the B52s, David Byrne doing laps around the stage in his oversized suit, Ray
Davies waiting for the sun to go down before the Kinks took the stage (and
infuriating Bill Graham in the process) and Sunday morning breakfast with the
Dead.
The brainchild of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, the US Festival was
meant to be a merging of music and technology and people, lots of them.
For all of the cutting-edge computers and electronics that were showcased
that weekend, the one new invention that was not obsolete by the following
year was the “outdoor rain,” those perforated PVC misters that got us through
those 100-degree days.
But you don’t need to travel far anymore to enjoy three days of music. The
Fathers’ Day Bluegrass Festival is in Grass Valley this month, with Worldfest
coming in July and the American River Music Festival and the Celtic Festival to
arrive in September. Grab a buddy, pitch a tent, fnd a mister and enjoy.

omedian Paula Poundstone frst garnered
attention in San Francisco comedy clubs
in the early ’80s, catching the eye of Robin
Williams, who not only guided her career but gave
her a standup spot on an episode of a Saturday
Night Live he hosted.
Soon she was getting the nod from Johnny Carson
on The Tonight Show. For the last three decades,
Poundstone’s observational humor has been heard
at comedy clubs across the country, HBO specials
and TV shows like Hollywood Squares, Home Movies
and The Late, Late Show. Poundstone has also
authored a book, There is
Nothing in This Book That I
Meant to Say, won two Cable
Ace Awards for her comedy
specials, and released a live
CD, I Heart Jokes. She is also
a regular panelist on the hit
NPR game show, Wait, Wait,
Don’t Tell Me.
I spoke recently with
Poundstone from her home
in Los Angeles, and asked
about her career, comedy
and her upcoming show in
Grass Valley.
We are really excited
for you to come up to the
foothills. Have you been up
here before?
“Absolutely, yes I have
been there. In fact, I was in
Grass Valley … I did a New
Year’s there maybe a year
or two ago, and across the
street from the hotel where
I stayed, I went and ordered
some food from this little deli
and they were putting the
food in the bag and I said,
‘No don’t put it in a bag;
I will feel guilty if I take a bag,’ and they said ‘No,
no, it’s a biodegradable bag.’ She said sometimes
people bury them and then dig them up to see them
degrading. And I thought, ‘Boy, I must be welcome
entertainment in this place.’”
I read that that Robin Williams was instrumental
in discovering you.
“Yea that’s true. I started out in Boston, and took
the Greyhound bus around the country to see what
clubs are like in different cities. I ended up falling in
love with the comedy scene in San Francisco. This
was like in 1980 and Robin was a part of that scene,
and he just ... introduced me to his management and
brought me on shows with him, and has been very
supportive ever since.”
When did you realize that you had the difference
between just being funny around the water cooler
versus being able to take the stage on Carson?
“Well I suppose to anyone else it’s gaining access
and practice. I was lucky enough to have a comedy
scene in Boston sort of rise up around me, not really
around me but amidst of where I lived. Then they had
open-mic nights and anybody that wants to can go
up and do fve minutes. The audience got in for free
back then, so we had big audiences. I got started
doing that and just kept working at it which was the
key to the whole thing.”
Were there certain comedians who really
infuenced your take on
humor?
“Well, I don’t know that I am
like anybody that I was fond of
as a kid, but my parents had
the Bill Cosby albums … 11 of
which I stole when I left home.
And when I was young, I was
lucky enough to be allowed
to stay up when Laugh In was
on and so I was a huge — still
am — huge Lily Tomlin fan. I
don’t do anything like either
of those people but I certainly
loved the sound of laughter
and I love the comedy stuff
from the time I was a little kid.”
Who is your crowd?
Do you know what your
audience breaks down to?
“Not exactly. I know
that I work through three
generations on a lot of nights.
I don’t work to tons and tons
of young people but, often
families come to my shows, it’s
not replete with families … I’m
not The Wiggles.”
Where do you see comedy
heading?
“Because I work alone, I don’t watch other acts.
People ask me all the time who I like of the new
comics, and I don’t know any of them. I’m happy for
them all but I don’t know any of them, I really don’t
know. I think it’s good news that there are a lot of
things that are less taboo then they once were and
that, in a large part, is due to comedy. You know,
laughing at stuff is a great way to understand it and
take the omen off of it.”
There seems to be a lot of misogyny in comedy.
Did you encounter any?
“People never said to me that they thought women
weren’t funny. I didn’t get hired as much as the other
guys when I frst started out, but I don’t know if I could
put my fnger on because I was a woman, necessarily.
I think I decided a long time ago that my goal is to
just work at being better and better at it. If I concern
myself with why someone doesn’t like me or why I
am kept out of this arena or another -- especially if I
tell myself it’s because of my gender or my size or my
hair color or because of this or that -- it tends to take
the focus off of working to be better and better at
what I do. I’ve benefted from it because there have
been shows that were ‘women this’ or ‘women that,’
and I always have mixed feelings about doing that,
because I felt like that to some degree that sort of
ghettoizes it. It makes it seem likes there is a vast
difference between being a female comic and being
a male comic, which clearly there isn’t — I mean it’s
just silly. When I used to work clubs where there was
an opening act, a middle act and a headliner, you
kind of worked your way up that little chain and you
get a little bit more money as a middle than you do
as a the opening act and then a bit more money as
a headliner than you did a middle act. A lot of time
guys would come up to me and say, ‘Well, how do
you tell so-and-so to hire me as a headliner,’ or, ‘How
can I do middle instead of emcee,’ and I used to say,
‘Forget about that. It doesn’t matter. It matters zero.
All that matters is getting on stage and improving
what you’re doing and getting really good so the
guy is going to look like an idiot for not hiring you.’
You become somewhat undeniable. I think it has to
be about the product itself and the relationship with
the audience. To me when I do a job and somebody
comes up to me and they say, ‘Man, I haven’t laughed
that long in a really, long time and I really needed it,’ I
am like ‘Score!’ You know I lifted somebody’s burden
for a few seconds.”
How did you get involved with Wait, Wait,
Don’t Tell Me, which you are just hysterical on?
“Thank you. Really in the most boring of ways.
They called me up and asked me. I had never heard
of it; this would be about 13 years or so ago. They
sent me an audio tape which I had laying on my
island in my kitchen, and I had a nanny at the time
who saw the tape and said, ‘Oh, I love that show; you
have to do that show.’ So I did.”
On Facebook you were talking about Stephen
Colbert replacing Letterman, and I was surprised a
woman wasn’t even being offered it. And then Craig
Ferguson announced that he’s leaving his show.
“Yes, which I am really disappointed by. I mean
the other two have made sense — what has it been
100 years now — but not Craig Ferguson. Maybe
he didn’t want to be the guy who’s leaving after 100
years, I don’t know.”
Have you ever been approached about doing a
late night show?
“Nope. Nor probably would I be. I am an acquired
taste.

t’s only 485 miles from Cuba to the United
States, but the folks who put on the summer
concert series from “Music in the Mountains”
are going to take two weeks to get there. Mind you,
there are stops along the way. The Silk Road, the
Nordic countries, forays into Liverpool, Scotland and
France (via Moscow). But all of the programs between
“Feste del Caribe” and “Happy Birthday USA” take
place in Nevada County
“Music from around the world is kind of our theme
this year,” said Cristine Kelly, executive director of
Music in the Mountains (MIM). “We’ll have Celtic
fddles, a Beatles tribute; for ‘Tales from the Exotic
East’ we will have a real Bedouin tent outside.”
Youth is served
The summer kicks off with the “Young Composers
Project,” where students from sixth grade through
college who have studied music notation, dictation,
theory, history, conducting and composition will
perform their original chamber pieces spread over
two nights in June. Part of the project was meeting
with educators at Sierra Streams Institute where
they learned about the plight of the salmon
and its importance to region’s watershed. Then, they
created an original composition, “Prelude for Yuba
Salmon,” which will be played by the MIM orchestra
at the “Young Geniuses” concert later in the season.
“I am delighted by things we do with our kids,
weaving a lot of youth programs into the festival,”
Kelly said. “When people can show music integrated
into other aspects of their lives, you take an issue
which might seem insurmountable to some, and if
you can explore it through a medium that speaks to
you, it resonates a little deeper and inspires you to
change.”
A 20-minute documentary was made about the
“Prelude” process which will be submitted to the
Wild and Scenic Film Festival. The musical piece will
serve as its score.
The MIM 55-piece orchestra features professional
musicians from all over California and beyond. Pete
Nowlen is the organization’s artistic advisor and
when he’s not conducting — guest conductors will
carry some of the load — he plays the French horn
and will be sitting in with Gardenia Azul for “Feste
del Caribe” at the Center for the Arts on June 19.
“It’s a really wonderful Cuban trio,” Nowlen said.
“They will be on stage with our woodwind quartet
and string quartet playing Caribbean inspired
classical pieces.”
The Orchestra Series
From Lemony Snicket to George Gershwin, a lot
of ground is covered culturally if not geographically
in the Orchestra Series, fve concerts at the Amaral
Center in the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
The family concert features a short piece inspired
by the aforementioned children’s author in “Nathaniel
Stookey’s Lemony Snicket: The Composer is Dead.”
Murder mystery included.
“Young Geniuses” will explore the work of
teenage composers.
“Mozart, Mendelssohn and Arriaga — known as
the Spanish Mozart — in my view, the greatest teen
composers of all time,” Nowlen said. “We put their
music together with our young composers’ ‘Prelude
to Yuba Salmon’ and teen violinist Ray Anthony
Trujillo.”
“Tales from the Exotic East” is based on
Scheherazade and the woman who told the story of
the 1,001 Arabian Knights.
“It’s an incredibly evocative piece,” Nowlen said.
“A group of Bedouin will reenact with a tent to really
give the sense to where those events might

have taken place.”
“Nordic Fantasy” is a Scandinavian-inspired concert, with works by Mendelssohn, Greig and
Gade, and featuring pianist in residence Konstantin Soukhovetski.
“The Grieg piano concerto is a beautiful piece,” Soukhovetski said. “Sort of an over the top
romanticism with the coolness of a Norwegian temperament. You can hear the glaciers in the
music.”
Next up is “Gershwin Extravaganza” featuring Rhapsody in Blue. Soukhovetski will also be
sitting in on this one.
“I always love playing it,” he said. “I had to convince people that a Russian pianist can play
American music. When I play Gershwin I throw out the classical routine and play like a jazz pianist,
with a Cole Porter, Apollo
Theater, cigarette dangling
out of my mouth vibe. And
I’ll certainly wear something
blue.”
Soukhovetski will also
take center stage during
“The French Connection,” a
chamber concert featuring
Faure’s Piano Quartet in
C minor, where he will be
joined by a violin, viola and
cello player.

delight fans of all ages with their spot-on
versions of Beatle classics, complete with
costume changes. And these guys have truly
been around the world, entertaining audiences
in Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, The United
Kingdom, Germany, Mexico and Brazil.
You might see folks dressed as Harry Potter or
Yoda for “A John Williams Spectacular” where
the MIM Orchestra and Chorus will perform
music from the famed movie composer (Jaws,
E.T., Star Wars, Harry Potter).
And for the Fourth of July (on the third,
make a note) it’s the orchestra and chorus
again for “Happy Birthday USA,” with tributes
to Broadway and Hollywood, because, after all,
they are a part of this country too.
“People will be impressed with the setting
and the friendliness of the experience,” Kelly
said. “It’s really joyful. This year we’ll have our
frst woman conductor ever. Unique to MIM is
not just a professional ensemble but a large
community chorus, more than 90 voices.”
Close to home
The penultimate concert is what’s known
as “Wet Ink,” which is newer works from local
composers. This year’s lineup features music by
Jerry Grant, Howard Hersh, Durwynne Hsieh,
Motoshi Kosako and Mark Vance.
“It’s fantastic. It pretty much can only happen
in Nevada County,” Nowlen said. “We have a
great many composers who have retired here
or chosen to be here with their career as a
composer. It’s all pieces composed in the last
few months or last few years.”
Music in the Mountains has been going on
for 33 years, starting as a classical music summer
fest and growing from there. In addition to
the pop and chamber music, the organization
reaches out to youth in the community through
programs like Young Composers, Peers
Performing 4 Peers and Music Live, which brings
a professional brass quintet, piano

quintet and wind quintet into Nevada County’s
K-8 schools for “Informances” (performing,
demonstrating and teaching).
“Classical music primarily is changing so the
organization has to change to meet demands
of the community that wants a more interactive
experience,” Kelly said. “Gorgeous, lush
romantic passionate music … we listen to what
our community is talking about.”
And they seem to enjoy listening back.

oots reggae and horn-driven soul funk. If that doesn’t get you on your feet, you must
be tired from running your kids from the bounce houses to the pony rides to the
climbing wall to the face painters and the craft booths. No worries, margaritas are
nearby.
Such is life at Party in the Park, Auburn’s annual celebration of music, food and all around
fun. Free to all comers (though there is a charge for some of the children’s activities, and food
and drink will be for sale) the party takes place in Auburn Regional Park on what is typically a
warm Friday evening in June.
“We’ve never had funk at Party in the Park,” said organizer Scott Holbrook. “And Pure
Roots brings a combination of old and new school reggae. We are always trying to keep the
music fresh. We’ve done Americana, reggae, zydeco, country … we try to get bands that
attract younger groups and still keep Grandma and Grandpa happy.”
Holbrook is a board member of the Auburn Recreation District (ARD). With his experience
as a part-time concert promoter, he enjoys the challenge of bringing quality, accessible music
to the masses.
“When I see all of the happy faces, I get a ton of satisfaction,” he said. “If I can present
serious musicians in a beautiful park setting, I am combining my two passions, ARD and live
music. It’s always magical; it’s always fun.”
Pure Roots, from Santa Cruz, play what they call “roots reggae with a message.”
“We are trying to convey a message through our music to better educate and spread love
amongst the world,” drummer Jeff Allgrove said. “We want people to take a look at this new
band out of Santa Cruz and expect to see us on festival lineups.”
Tim Bain, guitarist for Mojo Green, grew up in Colfax and is no stranger to Placer County
parties.
“This sounds like a great time,” Bain said. “We definitely consider ourselves comfortable as
a festival band. Our main goal is to get people to dance. We’re very high energy; we’re really
into connecting with the crowd. It’s all about encouraging people to cut loose and let it all go
on the dance floor.”
That should not be a problem, as the expansive lawn beckons barefoot boogeying.
“Festivals are usually highly anticipated events, and the energy from the audience kind of
gets carried on to the artist,” Allgrove said. “You really feel the energy at a festival; it brings
out the best in any musician.”

And so far it’s brought out the best in Auburn and
her surrounding communities. The crowd ranges from
extended families to fans of the bands. Beer and
wine and then some are sold in the food court, but
problems are few and far between.
“I have never seen an incident there, never,” said
Bart Ruud. “That’s a testament to our law enforcement.
You see a happy crowd, people who come year after
year, arrive early to throw their blanket down and stake
out a spot from where they might view the stage. It’s a
good event for Auburn.”
Rudd has spent most of his Party in the Park hours
manning the barbecue for one of the many service
clubs that sell food and drink. This year in the food
court, in addition to grilled meat, you’ll find everything
from pizza to veggie wraps.
“When you have something like this, service
clubs make a few dollars and that goes back into
the community in scholarships and assistance to the
community,” Ruud said. “It’s really good; it brings
outside money in, a substantial amount I would
venture to guess.”
Keith Nesbitt, a member of the Auburn City Council,
said he likes the idea of outside money finding its way
to local charities and needs. And while it is a free event
— and parks and picnic baskets go hand in hand —
anything you spend at, say, his Rotary Club’s booth,
will be put to good use in the community.
“I spend half the time working the Rotary booth and
the other half listening to music,” Nesbitt said. “Most of
the music I’ve liked, but regardless, it always seems to
be a nice, warm evening. My son was into heavy metal
and was just starting to discover reggae last year. It was
uplifting to see him enjoying real music for a change.”
If you don’t like the music this year there’s a good
chance it will be different next. Whatever the act,
though, the people keep coming out and the event’s
reputation keeps growing. Grownups dance, kids
play, kids dance, grownups play.
“It’s all good,” Ruud said. “It gives people a social
evening, an adventurous evening. The band they maybe
never heard of, it could be a different genre of music,
but it’s free and if they don’t like it they can leave.”
But chances are they won’t. Too much positive
energy going on.

resh off a successful extended winter entertainment season, Naggiar
Vineyards announces their 2014 Winefest summer season. Winefest – a
celebration of wine, food, and music – is comprised of Tribute concerts,
numerous celebration events, and the continuation of their popular Friday and
Saturday night live complimentary music.
“It starts with the wine, but people are passionate about the music” says
Naggiar Vineyards co-owner Mike Naggiar. “And then there’s the food. The
expansion of our food service last year has been very successful and it is now
an exciting constant for our customers.” Naggiar Bistro Chef Georgia Gross has
been integral to the transformation of Naggiar Vineyards from an exceptional
Tasting Room to a popular, full service, destination winery. Georgia’s innovative,
hand-crafted dishes have surprised and delighted diners in the area.
While the food is a much talked about part of Naggiar’s growing success, it is
the wine that takes center stage. The release of this season’s new wines will be
celebrated with a New Release Party on Saturday, May 17 from 1:00
to 4:00 pm. There will be music by the band No Taboo, barrel
tastings and the introduction of six new vintage wines. There
is no cost to attend this event and a delicious meal centered
on extra crispy fried chicken is available for pre-purchase
(a vegetarian option will also be available). It is strongly
recommend that you pre-purchase meals for this event, as
Naggiar cannot guarantee the availability of meals for sale
on the day of the event.
Following on the heels of their New Release Party, Naggiar
offers its frst Tribute show of 2014 on May 31 – a tribute to the music
of the Rolling Stones featuring Unauthorized Rolling Stones. Recognized
as the leading Rolling Stones Tribute band in the world, and considered
by Stones’ insiders and die-hard fans alike as “better than the real thing”,
the Unauthorized Rolling Stones look like the original, strut like the original and
rock like the original. The band has opened for numerous big name artists all
over the world and played the Rolling Stone’s 40th birthday VIP party. At Tribute
shows, Naggiar’s fne wines are always available for purchase (by the glass and by
the bottle) and delicious meals by Chef Georgia are available for pre-purchase.
Gates open at 4:00 pm and the music will begin at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $40 for
wine club member and $45 for non-members.
The 2014 Tribute series continues through September with a solid line up of
unparalleled entertainment on Naggiar’s waterfront stage. On June 28 Paperback
Writer brings a Tribute to the Beatles, July 26 features a Motown tribute full of
music, dancing and costumes with Nathan Owen’s Motown legends, and August
23 fnds Journey Unauthorized returning to the Naggiar stage for a second year
with their tribute to the music of Journey. The fnal show of the season will be on
September 27, where the popular Eagles tribute band Life in the Fastlane will
perform. Additional information on tickets, pre-purchase meals and
frequently asked questions for all Tribute shows can be found at
www.naggiarvineyards.com
In addition to Tribute shows, a number of other events
are planned throughout the season and can be found on
Naggiar’s online events calendar. Save the date for two
exciting events coming in June; a traditional Italian dinner
complete with accordion music on June 12 and an old west
themed interactive murder mystery dinner on June 22. There
is always something happening at Naggiar Vineyards.
If you can’t attend one of their special events, stop by the Tasting
Room to enjoy the Naggiar experience. They offer complimentary wine tasting
from 12:00 to 5:00 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Additionally,
they offer wine for purchase by the glass and by the bottle with
