Backyard Birds - Linda Baker (vocals, electric guitar, ukulele), Jean Catino (vocals and ukulele), June Coha (vocals and ukulele), Larry Prather (bass) and Linc Russin (mandolin) - performs a fresh blend of vocal harmonies in a wide range of music, from Americana, rock and roll, alt-country and R&B to jazz standards and surprising songs you'll be singing all the way home. The group members met through Santa Cruz County's thriving and supportive ukulele scene. The three women's close-knit harmonies and the band's acoustic stylings have drawn comparisons to the music of the T Sisters and Rosanne Cash, and their discerning selection of diverse and eclectic material is unique. Their performances include songs by Richard Thompson, Anna McGarrigle, First Aid Kit, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Imelda May, the Zombies, the Beatles and more.
