Tish HinojosaTish Hinojosa makes beautiful singing sound so easy. The Washington Post praises her “lovely, relaxed soprano” and “rare gift for melody.” The Los Angeles Times praises her “rare purity of voice.” She’s also a “first class songwriter,” as the Chicago Tribune declares. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, the youngest of 13 children, Tish grew up in the 1960s listening to folk, pop, rock and roll, and a big helping of Mexican music. She moved to Nashville and launched a career that has produced 16 albums, including her latest, After the Fair, which the Austin Chronicle compares to “an unexpected note from an old friend, something to savor.” After a nine-year adventure in Hamburg, Germany, she’s recently moved back to Austin, and her return to Berkeley is welcome indeed. For a joyful blend of folk and country, pop and Mexican traditional music, performed with grace by a singer and songwriter who makes it all look like a breeze, catch Tish Hinojosa at the Freight!

The East Bay’s Claudia Russell is a talented songwriter and an expressive and versatile singer, equally at home on a tender ballad or an all-out romp. Her most recent album, All Our Luck Is Changing, has won rave reviews. Country Music People calls it “an important release,” “close to perfect,” and “very enteraining!” American Songwriter calls it “a masterpiece” and says that Claudia’s singing “has never been more poignant or confident, and these songs come to life with an effortless spirit of genuine soul. This is heartwarming stuff, both inspirational and comforting at a time we need inspiration and comfort more than ever.” Boston’s folk radio station WUMB named Claudia Best New Artist in 2000, readers of the East Bay Express named her Best Musician in 2006, and the Kerrville New Folk Festival twice named her a finalist in its songwriting competition. She’s a Freight favorite who serves up a folk music feast, with a healthy helping of country and blues, spiced with an occasional hilarious story!
