Steve Brogden here. I am pleased and delighted to tell you that once again Brogden Bay Presents has been asked to provide entertainment as part of the 2nd annual City of Thousand Oaks’ Pop-Up Music and Arts Festival. I’ll be presenting a co-bill with The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble and Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps.
TERESA JAMES & THE RHYTHM TRAMPS
Originally from Houston, Texas, Grammy-nominated Teresa James is based in Los Angeles where she has assembled a group of some of the top LA based touring and session musicians in her band, The Rhythm Tramps. They have been working in the LA area and at blues festivals and clubs throughout the US and Europe for many years. For the last 13 years, the band has also been a favorite on Delbert McClinton’s Sandy Beaches Blues Cruise.
Teresa’s most recent CD release, Here in Babylon, was nominated for a Contemporary Blues Grammy this past year, a well-deserved honor! Here in Babylon was also named one of the 20 Best Albums of 2018 by Downbeat magazine.
She has performed live with such legendary artists as Levon Helm, Delbert McClinton, Eric Burdon, Marcia Ball, Tommy Castro, Big Al Anderson, Kirk Whalum, and many others. Her voice is featured on albums by Randy Newman, Eric Burdon, Tommy Castro, Bill Medley, and Walter Trout, among others. She has also sung for television and movie soundtracks; She and her band were featured in the Disney movie and soundtrack for “HOLES”.
THE SUSIE GLAZE NEW FOLK ENSEMBLE
Award-winning vocalist Susie Glaze, mandolinist Steve Rankin,
fiddler Mark Indictor and bassist Fred Sanders are The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble, the newest version of the acclaimed Los Angeles-based Americana group, a lush new folk Americana fusion ensemble, presenting gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting new grassy and Celtic-inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze. The group has been likened to the classic British bands Pentangle and Fairport Convention in that they blend classic folk music with rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate, all with orchestral arrangements sounding like chamber music gone folk!
Susie Glaze has been honored to be included on the newly-released Compass Records tribute album “Dear Jean – Artists Celebrate Jean Ritchie” alongside such artists as Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Janis Ian, Tim O’Brien, John McCutcheon, Robin and Linda Williams and many more.
