Bands & Musicians

Sonoma County is home to a number of musicians and bands that are actively playing in the area. Most of them have CD's available and many have their own websites to which we have provided links.

This is a page that lists and describes venues that, to the best of our knowledge, book bands and musicians to play on a regular basis. Our calendar page lists many of the scheduled performances at these venues and we provide links to available websites as well.

The Links page has pathways to many websites we've found interesting in our real or virtural travels. These are friends, instrument builders, lyrics collections, folk music or dance groups, data bases about folk music and arts, and whatever else we thought would be of interest.
