About Point Richmond Acoustic
In our sixth season,  Point Richmond Acoustic is sponsored by Point Richmond Music and the First Methodist Church. The church itself is intimate and an acoustic marvel. Built more than a century ago, it's an octagonal wooden prism that appears to be built by nautical carpenters. It’s like listening to music inside a guitar.

 

Our program is non-religious. A friendly no-pressure environment – it’s all about the music here! Ample parking is available downtown, just two blocks away.

Concerts are held at the beautiful and historic First Methodist Church of Point Richmond, at 201 Martina Avenue in Point Richmond. It is  We would like to thank our  Sponsors Point Richmond Music and California Delicious gift baskets.

Indeed, with their soaring vocal harmonies and story-filled, poetic songwriting - Misner & Smith's sound harkens back to the bedrock of modern American rock & folk. Paying tribute to strong influences like Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, and Buffalo Springfield, they have invented a sound all their own, seducing listeners with music that captures longing and belonging in the same moment. In a world that often feels to be crumbling down around us, they dig deep, and find hope in simple things, in the beauty that surrounds us all.

 

 

 

 

HEAR MISNER AND SMITH ON YOUTUBE

 

It was a different art form that brought these two together in the first place. Having each worked for years as actors in theaters around the country, they met at a Shakespeare festival in California in 2002 and then, several years later, worked together on an extended run of the play Woody Guthrie’s American Song. Sam and Megan discovered a mutual love of roots music, and in particular, harmony singing. With intricate, often 5-part vocal arrangements of Guthrie’s songs as the backbone of the show, the special blend that Misner & Smith have become known for became evident right away. Since then, the two have acted in the play over a hundred times around the country, including runs at venues such as Marin Theatre Company, The Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, The Colorado Shakespeare Festival, among others.

 

Balancing their lives as musicians and actors is no easy task—and often more like a juggling act. Yet storytelling is at the heart of both, and may well be the common thread running through all art.

 

Opening artist Keeley Valentino is a Novato native who has written and recorded in Nashville, Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Her blend of country, roots and pop has attracted a remarkable 14 million listeners on Spotify. No wonder! She's a powerful singer, who writes well crafted songs with a contemporary folk edge. We're lucky to have her!
