    Songwriters at Play

    7pm

    The Porch Cafe

    Marc Douglas Berardo is the kind of hard working, fast moving, adventure seeking, keen observer who lives for the story and the song. In what amounts to song length works of fiction, Berardo’s sharply drawn, award winning song portraits cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places. With a painter’s eye for detail, and music firmly rooted in the great American sound, Berardo sings about circus retirees, expatriates in Florida rum bars, union iron workers, old poets, aimless New York City debutantes, near death car crashes, hard nosed fishermen and of course, the changes that experience brings to everyone. He does this “simply and well” with what Rambles Cultural Magazine calls: “careful images and great tunes.” https://www.marcdouglas.com

    Special guests include Larry Allen, Archie Logsdon, and Mario Rojas.

    Dorian Michael & Kenny

    7pm to 9pm

    The Porch Cafe

    22322 El Camino Real

    Santa Margarita, CA 93453

    After Kenny and Dorian met by chance in a music store in San Luis Obispo, then at a backyard jam session, and again at a music convention in Los Angeles, they decided it was time to play some music together. Kenny, one of California’s foremost mandolinists, wanted a chance to play outside of the bluegrass genre in which he is constantly in demand. Guitarist Dorian Michael was looking for a skillfull musician who understood a wide variety of roots music. Six months later their first CD was released and they were touring as a duo.

    The duo’s diverse backgrounds are the wellspring for a performance of exciting and heartfelt music. Their enthusiasm for making music and their respect for their audience is plainly evident whenever they perform. Says Dorian, “Some music makes you feel deeply, some music makes you think and some tunes are played just for the sheer fun of it. We like to try to get to all those places in the space of a concert.”

    Kate Steinway

    7pm to 9pm

    The Porch Cafe

    A direct descendant of Henry E. Steinway, the founder of Steinway & Sons, Kate Steinway’s earliest musical memories are of her grandfather playing his original compositions on their family's 1946 Steinway piano. Formerly the youngest member of the Los Angeles Children’s Choir and a student of famed opera singer, Suzanna Guzmán, Steinway has been studying voice since she could speak. The California native has been a regular in the Los Angeles music scene since 2010. In 2015, Steinway, a lifetime learner and lover of music, became involved with The Songwriting School of Los Angeles. It is there that she met her future singing and touring partners, Chloë Agnew (of Celtic Woman fame), Mary Bee and Danielle Carter. In May 2015, Steinway packed up her ukulele and embarked on an eight month backpacking tour of South America and Southeast Asia where she experienced world music firsthand.

    Last summer, along with Bee and Carter, Steinway co-headlined the “Blueprints” Tour: a seventeen show tour of New England. Steinway and Bee closed the tour with a sold out concert featuring Chloë Agnew. In January, along with Bee, Steinway performed at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.

    This Spring and Summer, Steinway brings her soulful voice and cheerful ukulele to California’s Central Coast on her solo “Wayfaring Woman” Tour. Playing multiple shows in over a dozen communities, Steinway will spend the next few months connecting with local musicians and supporters throughout the region.
