      The concert itself was wonderful and the sound was great. However, it would have been great to have some close ups of the performers. Also, when they took a break, is there a way to know when the break is over and the webcast starts again? I missed part of it.

You might say that Woody Guthrie brought Sam Misner and Megan Smith together as a musical duo. They were performing in Peter Glazer’s theatrical creation, Woody Guthrie’s American Song, in Nevada City in 2004 when they discovered a mutual love of American roots music and down-to-earth songs that tell compelling stories. Since then, they’ve balanced their acting careers with a musical collaboration that has produced three critically acclaimed albums, including their latest, Live at the Freight & Salvage, which Maverick Magazine praised for its “top quality original songs” and “superb harmonies.”

Sam plays guitar, Megan plays mandolin and upright bass, and their blended voices ring with commitment and vitality. Influenced by folk music and Motown, blues and bluegrass, the pair achieves a sound that is both traditional and contemporary. As actors as well as musicians, they understand the art of embodying a story and the importance of connecting with the audience. Hicks with Sticks has called Misner & Smith “a Bay Area treasure to be shared . . . with a touch for taking simple ideas and infusing them with unexpected meaning, metaphor, and imagery.” So come out and share the treasure—this is a performance to savor.
