Rita Hosking & Cousin Jack
Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope. From NPR’s Weekend Edition to Bob Harris’s BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice.
Rita’s style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised for capturing the audience. A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.
"This California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family's frontier experience." --Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com
