Storm Session Cafe Band strike 2 locations this weekend

They love Paris … and Rome, and Athens, and Scopje, Belgrade, Sofia, Moscow, Edinburgh, New Orleans, Brownsville and definitely Nevada City. After a six week hiatus, the ever intrepid and talented Storm Session Cafe Band returns to playing this weekend at the Nevada City Classic Cafe and the Brownsville Mountain Festival.

On Friday night, and every Friday night for the month of September, the Nevada City Classic Cafe will once again be lit up with the joy of Storm Session’s hauntingly gorgeous, blood stirring Gypsy songs, bewitchingly beautiful European tangos, musettes, and mazurkas, very cool French show tunes and the band’s own compositions.

Maggie McKaig’s accordion playing, combined with the talents of Luke Wilson on tenor guitar, Murray Campbell on violin and Randy McKean on clarinet make magic together in a rich soundscape. Storm Session has been a big hit at all the events they’ve played in the last year and a half since coming together as a band. The music is not just mesmerizing, but lots of fun! They’ve also been working on a new CD over the summer, which they hope to have ready for release this fall.

The band will also be performing on Sunday afternoon at the Brownsville Mountain Festival. It’s the band’s second appearance at this annual event, sponsored by the Yuba Feather Communities Services Recreation Committee, and it all takes place in the very lovely Brownsville Amphitheater. Storm Session will be opening the festival at 1 p.m., which also features the great dance music of Ron Thompson and the Resistors, Big Mo and the Full Moon Band, Flavor Nation and Miles Schon and more.

So, for a truly fine time, go see Storm Session at the Nevada City Classic Cafe, or the Brownsville Mountain Festival – or both!
