The Tatters are excited to announce that Mary McCaslin will be coming back to Ventura to share in a night of wonderful music.

The show kicks off with the wonderful music of Mary McCaslin.Mary represents an unbroken link between traditional American folksingers and today's "new folk" singer-songwriters. Known for her songs about the West, its landscape, and its outlaws as well as her insightful songs about relationships, Mary has influenced countless other performers. For many years before her current solo career, Mary toured with legendary singer Jim Ringer. Together they helped keep folk music on the map through some very lean years. Mary was a pioneer of open tunings, using them long before they gained their current popularity. In addition to her flawless fingerpicking style on the guitar, Mary also plays "clawhammer" banjo using it to great (and unique) effect on such unlikely songs as "Blackbird" and "Pinball Wizard." These and other personalized arrangements of popular songs have consistently added to her appeal. Learn more about Mary at

The Tatters are a mix of Americana, folk, bluegrass, Hawaiian, swing and originals. A lively and personal performance always leaves smiles on faces and keeps feet tapping. A harmony based group with talented backing musicians, The Tatters are: Claudia Craig, Mary Z. Wilson, Erika Harding, Bill Flores, Jack Joshua and Danny Wilson. They have shared venues with Mary McCaslin before and are excited to do so again. Visit The Tatters website at to see reviews on their CD and link to a merchandise page with all sort of goodies.

There will be CDs available by all as well as the La Conchita Remember tribute album. Music makes a wonderful and lasting holiday gift.

Please pass the word along...this should be a special evening.
