Mendocino Stories & Music Series on November 29

For our annual singer/songwriter showcase, Mendocino Stories & Music Series will present Americana/Folk musicians Gwyneth Moreland along with Misner & Smith on Friday, November 29. Music starts at 7:30PM at the Mendocino Hotel.

With a voice that invokes Jenny Lewis' solo work crossed with the intimate folk of Gillian Welch, Gwyneth Moreland evokes a feeling of nostalgia rooted deep in classic country fundamentals, modern and original, while paying proper respect to the classics of the genre. Gwyneth has invited bass player David Hayes and brother Morgan Daniel to join her in a few tunes. These special guests have the ability to add magic to the evening.

Misner & Smith’s sound is anchored by their unique vocal harmonies and evocative lyrics. Their music is a search for meaning, songs that yearn for connection, ache for understanding, relish in mystery, and rejoice in creation. They dig deep, and find hope in simple things, in the beauty that surrounds us all.

All ages are welcome! Doors open at 6:30 PM for bistro menu and full bar. Reserved table seating $20, $15 general admission. Call Pattie at 937-1732 or www.mendocinostories.com/events.html
