Point Richmond Acoustic is pleased to kick off our seventh season with two fine songwriters from the nation's heartland, Bill and Kate Isles.

 

Bill & Kate are a charming and musical acoustic singer/songwriter duo based in Duluth, Minnesota. Using a wide variety of musical styles, Bill and Kate carry audiences through a broad landscape of small-town family stories and zany comedy. Skilled performers and natural storytellers, they are known for their catchy melodies and memorable songs. They have a deep-seated love for the audience and for each other, and it shines before, during, and after the performance. Bill performed his first show of original songs, after a twenty-five year hiatus, in February 2000. Since that time, he has become one of the best-known singer/songwriters in the Minnesota acoustic scene and has been getting national and international attention.

 

Kate Isles came to the CD release concert for Bill's first CD, “Weightless” after hearing a public radio interview. She bought the CD and signed up on his e-mail list. ('Grounds for marriage!' quips Bill.) Their song 'Public Radio (A True Story)' is a delightful duet that chronicles these beginnings. Vist www.billandkateisles.com

Petaluma's Bobby Jo Valentine is an award-winning singer/songwriter currently residing and touring around the coast of CA. His new album, ‘A Place to Belong,’ released to favorable reviews, and his single “Be Mine” had radio airplay even before the album’s release. His warm, accessible melodies and often-profound lyrics have developed a following around the nation. In August 2011, a song from the album “Fly” won Song of the Year at West Coast Songwriter’s Association.

 

Concerts are held at the beautiful and historic First Methodist Church of Point Richmond, at 201 Martina Avenue in Point Richmond. Tickets will be available in advance in early September  We would like to thank our  Sponsors Point Richmond Music and California Delicious gift baskets.

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.
