7 reasons to come see Mark Holland and N Scott Robinson in Grass Valley tonight

Mark Holland and N. Scott Robinson will be performing in Grass Valley this evening.
Here's 7 reasons to come out and see them this evening:

  1. This is Mark and Scott's first visit to Grass Valley, come out and show them that Nevada County is a welcoming place to visit (so that we get them back next year)
  2. They just released their new album "The Beauty of it all" and will be playing new music from this album tonight.
  3. Their new album "The Beauty of it all" will be for sale at the show
  4. Mark Holland is an incredible composer and together with Scott, they make an really tight duo
  5. Scott plays a mean Riqq (middle eastern tambourine). You'll be amazed at the complex rhythms he can get from a such a simple instrument. Scott will also play other percussion instruments and rhythms from around the world.
  6. It's going to be a beautiful evening to be outside
  7. Check out the restoration process of the North Star house (Hint: we're going to be producing more shows here in the future)
