Erica and Friends are Berkeley-based performers of traditional and modern folk music of the British Isles and Ireland - beautiful ballads and pub songs intermingled with jigs, reels and traditional tunes performed by seasoned players on exquisite folk instruments with gorgeous vocal harmonies. They are fronted by English singer, Erica Hockett, whose clear, bell-like voice stops people in their tracks and draws them in to listen to the timeless stories of the British folk tradition. They perform at venues around the Bay Area, including a recent appearance at the Freight & Salvage, as well as at folk festivals, pubs, wineries, listening rooms and house parties.
