This will be a full-band show.

E. Christina Herr leads the band Wild Frontier through the rugged Western Gothic Landscape.

A sonic rodeo of original Americana, Alt Country Twang, old school Rock 'n Roll and Spaghetti Western, E. Christina Herr & Wild Frontier evoke a compelling musical weather report from the West and Southwest of yesterday and today. 

Christina's crystal clear alto voice and tremolo vibrato contrasts brilliantly with the ring of vintage acoustic and electric guitar twang, atmospheric pedal steel, driving upright bass and drums.  She's been compared to Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Joni Mitchell, Wanda Jackson and Chrissie Hynde. 

Wild Frontier reflects influences from the psychedelic Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the cosmic alt country of Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers, Don Rich's Bakersfield sound, John Ford's atmospheric landscapes and Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western soundtracks.

The songs on Wild Frontier's latest CD, Americana Motel, range from country two steps and cowboy waltzes to old school rock 'n roll... songs telling stories about desert cowboys, longed-for road signs, burning embers and a tragic songwriter poet.

Flavored with an original sound the band calls Western Gothic.

This is the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with the Friends for the Public Library.
