Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers, who have been making big waves with their fresh take on classic country and rootsy honky-tonk music in the past several years, return for an 8 p.m. concert Friday, July 19, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.
Opening the show is the popular Winters and Santa Cruz-based honky-tonk rockabilly band Miss Lonely Hearts. Tickets are $15.
Muth’s music has the familiarity of old favorites combined with honesty that keeps the music fresh. With Muth (pronounced “Mewth”) on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, the Lost High Rollers (David Harmonson on pedal steel, electric guitar and dobro; Greg Nies on drums and keys; Mike McDermott on bass; and Ethan Lawton on mandolin) is a band that can crank things up to full twang or dial it down to tug on heartstrings to suit Muth’s songs.
Regional favorite Miss Lonely Hearts is fronted by Winters’ native son, Wyatt Hesemeyer. Miss Lonely Hearts’ music leaps from the energetic intersection of honky-tonk, rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll.
In addition to Hesemeyer, who takes lead singing and songwriting duties as well as stepping out with guitar, banjo and harmonica, Miss Lonely Hearts includes Winters-based innovative multi-instrumentalist Keith Cary on lap steel and mandolin, Parker McDonald on lead guitar, Mischa Gasch on upright bass, Patrick O’Conner on suitcase percussion and Sasha Prawalski on harmony vocals.
Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com, zoemuth.com and misslonelyheartsband.com.
