Nathan and Jessie Bring Back the Folk ‘N Swing

Nathan & Jessie, the gypsy, bluesy, jazzy, folky, California duo are dusting their boots off from their Mexico tour and making their way to Altadena for a performance at The Coffee Gallery Backstage accompanied by local music group The Honolulu Ave. Strummers, on Thursday, December 10, 7:00 p.m. Tickets at $10.

Nathan Rivera and Jessie Andra Smith, winners of Best Blues and Best Country of Temecula Valley 2014, are a fusion of jazzy folk and blues on two National Reso-Phonic guitars and accordion, with dynamic interplay between female and male vocals. Their trilingual performances are uplifting, fun, and with a message for people of all ages and cultures.

With honest songs of love, life, travel and stories to match, Nathan and Jessie’s upcoming performance at beloved music venue, The Coffee Gallery Backstage, guarantees to be an unforgettable night of music.
