Godspeed, MINA <3

A couple of weeks ago, Mina, our intrepid little road dog, slipped the surly bonds of earth. Her sweet, scrappy little soul brought love, connection and joy for well over 17 years. These past days have been smattered with bouts ranging from the sort of tears that catch you off guard to full on “ugly crying.” But even in the midst of tears, our hearts can’t help but swell with love an gratitude for the gift of her bright presence for so many years. Godspeed to our favorite little polar bear (garbage gut), honey badger (didn’t give a shit), Mina Puppy!

“These young ladies joined SWRFA for the first time this year bringing a bluesy, country feel rooted in southern folk music, all with percussion. At times I thought I caught bits of influence from Michelle Shocked and the Indigo Girls. They even brought a bit of yodeling.” Click here for more:

PAST SHOWS

“Strong singers figure out how to play a few chords to get by.  Great fret-masters eke out a tepid set of vocals for the same reason.  Then we sit down and watch someone [like Cari Ray] who can nail them both.” – Donovan Wheeler, National Road Magazine
“The result is a wonderful combination of skillfully written songs that are bare, yet full-sounding.” – Blues Magazine

Cari Ray is a storyteller who who tells her tales through song; songs that manifest themselves in one’s mind in a way that transports you to somewhere in the early 20th Century.

Her influences as a writer and performer are front and center in her original material, spanning a wide range of early american music… a helping of acoustic blues, a little folk, a rasher of ragtime, and a slight flavor of old-time country. Her live show serves it up handily with quick wit, tasty fingerstyle guitar, and a huge, evocative voice.

She continues to draw accolades for songwriting, most recently with her track “It’s About Me” winning the blues songwriting competition at the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival and selection to the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival. Solo or with her band, playing for 20 or 2000, Cari finds a way to strike a perfect balance between energy and intimacy. With a unique blend of heart and grit, this powerhouse entertainer just doesn’t miss.
