About the event

In mid-2008, multi-instrumentalist Tommy Miles got some friends together in Quincy, California to begin working on a new group originally envisioned as a classic and alternative country act. The current repertoire includes countryinfluenced music of all kinds with an emphasis on songs with funny and intelligent lyrics. Along with classic country tunes (like “Mama Tried” and “Folsom Prison Blues”), the band covers such alternative country artists as John Prine, Reckless Kelly, James McMurtry, the Bottle Rockets, Chris Webster, Alejandro Escovedo, and Southern Culture on the Skids.

The Back 40 Band:

Chris Retallack: Bass, vocals

Gordon Wilson: Lead guitar, vocals

Cathy Newton: Vocals, percussion

Tommy Miles: Drums, rhythm guitar, vocals
