Le (four piece) Duo: Gabe and Mimi

Mimi and Gabe Pirard are a French-American sibling duo that charms audiences with their incredible talent and Parisian flare.

Mimi has a passion for reviving and exuding songs from times gone by as sung by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and their contemporaries. With his guitar strings, Gabe wrings out emotion and brings intensity high just to let drop again, bringing back to life sounds of Paco de Lucia, Django Reinhardt and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Together, their vocal harmonies fall together tightly in place to resonate with audience members.

Mimi and Gabe formed the band, Dgiin, which earned The North Bay Music Awards, “Best World Music Band”, for it’s unique, high energy mix of gypsy, flamenco, with a touch of funk. Their repertoire included songs in French, Spanish, and English.

Today Mimi sings with the band, SonoMusette, where she explores and exudes her favorite musical styles and songs.

Gabe and Mimi will be joined by longtime Dgiin musical collaborator and musical family Magali Sanscartier on the violin. Originally from Quebec, Magali moved away from her classical training when she fell in love with East European music. From then on, her interest for “gypsy.” jazz, and world music grew deeper and stronger. She currently plays for Bay Area bands such as Barrio Manouche and Dgiin, and as a guest for the Spanish duo Dos Bandoleros.

Last but not least, Le (four piece) Duo will be joined by longtime Sonoma County virtuoso Emily Froberg.

Sam Weber Get Free Tour with special guests Echoes & Artifacts

Canadian-born artist Sam Weber (trio) spans an eclectic range of roots, americana, improvisational music and jazz influences. He has released three LPs of his own material, collaborated with Grammy winners, and contributed guitar to the 2021 Juno-winning Bahamas album, Sad Hunk. Supporting his latest release Get Free, Sam is going forth with the same intention and mantra as when he began: “Music is an emotional conduit between people and allows us the opportunity to share moments of truth and unity. In an age where the ritual of music-making can be a solitary exercise, I want to live my life to remind everyone that playing music as a communal and spontaneous practice can be healing and powerful.”

“[Weber] is an expert tunesmith, brimming with addictive, adventurous and confident pieces. Infused with deep wit and wisdom, Weber’s output is truly impressive. His guitar work is also killer, full of nuance, soul and a truly unique voice…. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Weber in the coming years and, more than likely, decades” Guitar Player Magazine

Echoes & Artifacts is a musical collaboration between singer-songwriter and visual artist Allyson Makuch and guitarist and singer Rory Cloud. Founded in 2018 and currently based in Santa Cruz, CA, Echoes & Artifacts create forward-looking acoustic music with deep roots and modern influences.

“As a songwriter, Allyson Makuch doesn’t like to dress up her music with unnecessary fluff. Her songs, which are performed passionately in acoustic splendor with multi-instrumentalist Rory Cloud, cut right to the sometimes uncomfortable marrow of her deepest emotions. The name of their musical collaboration, Echoes & Artifacts, reflects the transcendental lens through which they view songs: the past echoing for an eternity, or at least as long as people take the time to listen. This duo plays their instruments with the awareness of the power they wield with their acoustic guitars, and takes no detours in expressing something authentic and heartbreaking at its core.” Aaron Carnes, GoodTimes, Santa Cruz, CA

Sea Oats sang it out… au naturale at TLC San Francisco

Oh, that 65 Capp Street Theater was resonant! Musicians often performed sans electricity — just them, their voice, instrument, and innate talents. High voltage was in the air, but it was the kind generated by unfettered human energy.

Here’s a completely unamplified song by Sea Oats gently collected back in May of 2019.

Tips for Listening to Lost Church Free Radio

Embrace letting go of the wheel

While an archive of episodes is in the works, for now, our fledgeling wonder, KTLC, dares you to tune in on the exact day and time when each show airs.

On demand may be de rigueur/today’s custom, but we are bucking that trend and invite you revisit the golden age of radio. Mark you calendars to listen to each and every one of these extraordinary original programs.

Here’s the gist…we feature debut episodes of most of our shows at the top of every month and then replay it every week thereafter in the same time slot, so you have 4-5 chances per month to tune in.

Our shows West of Twin Peaks Radio and The Hangover Sessions grace us with a new episode every other week (with a replay the following for second chance listening).
