Eilen Jewell ~ Bluesy Contemporary Folk

  • Live Oak Music Festival Live Oak Camp, Highway 154 Santa Barbara, CA (map)

Idaho singer-songwriter and self-proclaimed “Queen of the Minor Key,” Eilen Jewell returns to Live Oak to play her mix of folk, country, blues and gospel. Jewell and her band performed at Live Oak back in 2008 and again in 2010 with her eight-piece gospel-group the Sacred Shakers. Known for what allmusic.com describes as a “country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk,” Jewell credits the blues for igniting her musical curiosity. She and her band are touring on the heels of their critically acclaimed album, “Down Hearted Blues,” her first collection of songs from that genre.
