Elko Correspondence – April 2019


April Greetings from Elko. Spring has arrived and we are enjoying the warmer weather.

Real Sarahs Coming to Elko

Come join the fun as this Americana trio makes their debut performance in Elko, NV at the Duncan Little Creek Gallery and Bar. As rising stars in the West Coast Americana scene, The Real Sarahs have distinguished themselves as skillful harmony singers and evocative songwriters. With an organic sound that enchants and uplifts the spirit, they share their special gift of vocal synergy. This ensemble creates magic with voices in harmony, acoustic instruments, and the energetic connection between artists and audience. Embracing many genres of music, you are likely to hear threads of folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and country running through their songs. Singing from the stories of their own journeys and life experiences, their original music is honest, captivating and heartfelt.
