Brynn Albanese and Judith Larmore have teamed up to create a new acoustic concert series in Cambria: Cambria Concerts Unplugged, Albanese announced.
Her website describes the concerts as “a small-town music series that serves up big eclectic entrees of performers from all over” with no sound system. The series will feature “solos, duos, trios and quartets” in “the warmth of a pure wooden chapel.”
All the concerts will be in the Old Santa Rosa Chapel, 2353 Main St. Upcoming shows, all scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m.:
▪ June 3 — Molly’s Revenge Trio Unplugged plays Celtic music.
▪ July 29 — The Sunny Wright Trio (vocalist Sunny Wright, Dylan Johnson on bass and guitarist Jacob O’dell) performs jazz standards.
▪ Oct. 21 — The Cimo Brothers, a San Luis Obispo-based trio that blends world music, classical, folk and rock: Jack Cimo on classical guitar; Daniel Cimo on violin and percussion; Vince Cimo on guitar, bass and percussion.

Café Musique also features Duane Inglish on accordion, Craig Nuttycombe on guitar and vocals, Fred Murray on bass and vocals, and Eric Williams on guitar, ukulele, bouzouki and vocals.
