Calaveras. It's a little river with a melodious name that runs down through the rolling Sierra Foothills to the central valley delta and on to the San Francisco Bay. It's the Spanish word for "skulls." It's a folk trio from the Bay Area that tries to keep its music honest, organic and challenging.

Their songs have captured the Kerrville New Folk prize, the Napa Valley Emerging Songwriter award, Northern California Songwriters Association Song of the Year, first place in three categories in the 2005 West Coast Songwriter's Song Contest, and have appeared in TV and movies.

Their live show is a mix of Victoria's soaring vocals on pure folk ballads and sultry jazz-fusion torch songs, Greg's energetic and insightful musical treatment of birth, death and everything in between, and Dave's constantly creative lead-guitar commentary.

Their hope is that the music will speak for itself.
