House concert Nov. 3 benefits Friends of the River

N Street Music will host a benefit house concert at the N Street Cohousing common house on Saturday, Nov. 3. The show will feature three renowned guitarists — Magic Brook, Rex Richardson and J. Cedar Seeger — each playing solo acoustic sets of original music in support of Friends of the River, California’s statewide river conservation organization.

Brook defies labels and genres with his soulful acoustic guitar work and unique blend of sounds. Brook’s fluid two-hand guitar technique, percussive use of the instrument and blending of styles enables him to create his own intriguing brand of powerful acoustic music.

Richardson comes to Davis from his home near the Salmon River. As a specialist in interpreting poetry as song, he blends the work of such poets as T.S. Elliot, Robert Frost and Dylan Thomas with his expertise in flamenco, classical, jazz and folk guitar styles. He finds expression in performing solo and in ensembles of varying musical genres including Celtic, rock and roll and rhythm and blues.

Seeger, a local favorite, is well known for his diverse abilities as a lead player but also as a solid singer/songwriter as a solo performer. His songs are stories, full of humor, irony and pull from the blues of the working-class struggle.

Friends of the River is nationally recognized as an authority on the adverse impacts of dams on rivers and ecosystems. The organization led successful campaigns for the permanent protection of many California rivers and streams, including the Kings, Kern, Merced, Tuolumne, upper Klamath, West Walker, East Carson, Sisquoc and Big Sur rivers as well as Sespe Creek and Cache Creek.

The N Street Cohousing common house is at 716 N St. in East Davis. A $10 donation is suggested at the door, which opens at 7:45 p.m. for advance seating and reservations. The show will run from 8 p.m. to midnight. Refreshments will be available for purchase.

For reservations and other inquiries, email N Street Music at [email protected].
