Carnegie to Host Ukulele Workshop and Concert Courtesy of Carnegie Arts Center
Internationally touring ukulele artist Victoria Vox will grace the Carnegie Arts Center loft with a small concert May 15. Vox, a Green Bay native, began writing songs at age 10 inspired by Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, and mostly with her guitar. Last year Vox released her new album, “KEY” described by interim director of the Carnegie Lisa McDermott as “a heartfelt collection of songs that she wrote during her self-inflicted 52 Original Song Project.” The project was an effort to fund the artist’s time on the road.

For the second consecutive year, Turlock will play host to one of the state’s top celebrations of craft beer. The Central Valley Brewfest will be bigger and better than ever when it returns from 1 to 5 p.m. May 10 at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds. “The Central Valley Brewfest is a one-of-a-kind event in our region,” said Central Valley Brewfest organizer Veronica Camp. “Keeping our locals on the cutting edge of a growing trend.” Last year’s Brewfest blew away expectations, attracting more than 500 people for the four-hour beer tasting celebration. That’s nearly double the attendance Camp expected.

Local Vocals: Valley Americana at its Finest Courtesy of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit
The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit delivers a slice of bluegrass and country as warm as sunshine and as sweet as apple pie. The boys of the Outfit have been performing together since 2004. Surprisingly, the first time I heard them was last year at the State Theater in Modesto. I had purchased tickets to see the extraordinary band House of Orange and got an extra bonus with TGLTSO. I was so impressed with what I had heard that I purchased two of their three albums: “The Ghost of Good Manners” and “Old Excuses.” Their self-titled debut album was sold out.
