Music Downtown

Chris Parreira is a talented singer-songwriter who came all the way from Ashland last year to play a set at our North State Songwriters Tribute to Bob Dylan. He impressed me with his honest voice and well-crafted songs. Since then, he's relocated from Ashland to Austin, Tx, and the guy is busier than ever.

He's touring like a madman -- making music all over the country -- and he's stopping here in Redding this weekend.

Chris Parreira and Marc Jeffares (Knoxville, TN) will bring their music to:

The Downtown Eatery
Saturday, March 7th, 7-10PM

Marc Jeffares (myspace. com/marcjeffares) "Writing, living, and performing out of such diverse places as the coastal redwood country of Humboldt County, CA; the mountains of Colorado; and music history rich East Tennessee, Marc Jeffares uses the song to express the landscape, culture, emotions, and subconscious of the world around him....A dynamic and charismatic performer, he has been compared to Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan, among others."

Chris Parreira (myspace. com/chrisparreiramusic) "Chris's music contains an honesty that is rare in the modern songwriter. You can feel the open road in his songs. You can feel the ecstasy and the loneliness. You can feel the adventure. From the first line, you know this guy is living it."-John Craigie, singer-songwriter"Chris Parreira writes songs like he was born to do it...and plays them like it's what keeps him alive." -Lila Nelson, Singer-Songwriter/DJ on KHUM
