After five years on the road, four albums under their belt and multiple international tours, Water Tower has been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. Their all original sound is infectious and has spread far and wide to audiences of all ages and walks of life. Based in Portland, Oregon they got their start busking on street corners playing traditional old time and bluegrass, eventually honing their sound as a solid dance band playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the west coast. “They’ve adopted the intensity of rock and punk and channeled it into their songs and tunes…their far-ranging influences enable them to see the common ground between folk, rock, punk and even jazz, and they draw from this common ground to create their unique sound.”–No Depression

The Old Time Fiddle & Banjo Show will open the concert with a set of vintage “oldternative” tunes. Also performing that night will be singer-songwriter Amber Cross, who is also a member of OTFBS, and the Kenny Blackwell-Stuart Mason duo. The Spot is a 50-seat theatre located at 116 W. Branch St., in the village of Arroyo Grande (next to Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream). Tickets are $10, available in advance at thespotag.com

Songwriters At Play! is a series of showcases hosted by Steve Key, featuring performances by top local talent from California’s Central Coast, and touring pro musicians. songwritersatplay.com/
