With eight albums and more than a decade of touring in the States and Europe, Davis-based musician Rita Hosking is one of the most acclaimed talents to come out of the region’s Americana music scene. Her music receives significant attention from radio and press across the country and abroad. On Saturday, March 23, Hosking will bring her trio to The Palms Playhouse for an 8 p.m. show. Sean Feder (banjo, Dobro, vocals) and Bill Dakin (upright bass, vocals) will join Hosking. Tickets are $20 ($16 with student ID). Hosking captivates listeners with her story songs and sweetly sinuous voice. Reviewers laud her style of country-folk for strong narratives and sense of place. Honors include festival contest wins and multiple inclusions in album-of-the-year lists.   Hosking’s down-home, literate and quietly intense songs traverse the musical terrain of folk, bluegrass, country and old-time music, and she brings smarts and storytelling to her songs. From early in her career, Hosking showed a penchant for singing of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope. But she’s unafraid of taking her music in new directions, as evidenced by 2015’s ambitious and evocative concept album “Frankie and the No-Go Road.” While Hosking’s earlier music drew from the mountain music tradition and had a timeless quality, the lyrics of her newest album, 2018’s “For Real,” are inspired by the current moment. Hosking told the Davis Enterprise previously that she woke up one morning thinking about “how the media is under attack, and ‘alternative facts’ are out and about. “And I said to my husband, ‘I’m going to make an album called ‘For Real.” Music is a very real thing to me; I feel I sing truth in my songs. And that’s very important, because music comes from a very deep place in me.” As Jeremy Searle of Maverick Magazine said, Hosking’s music is “heartfelt country soul … from someone who’s quietly become one of the best.” Tickets are available online via The Palms’ website and through Eventbrite as well as at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland and at the door if not sold out.
