Caitlin and Will

Concerts at the Cove wraps up its season with the country double-header Rodeo House and Caitlin and Will. The free show starts at 5:30 p.m. in Crab Cove, 1252 McKay Avenue.

Headliners Caitlin Fisher and Will Snyder, who formed their partnership last year in Nashville, made their Grand Ole Opry debut this past May with a new single, “Address in the Stars.” The song has become a Top 40 hit with country music fans, and the pair has gotten a positive review from The New York Times.

The singers were paired up by judges on CMT’s “Can You Duet” (he’s from London, Kentucky; she’s from Glen Burnie, Maryland) – and ended up winning the competition. They have an EP available online and a full album to come.

Home-grown country rockers Rodeo House were formed in November 2005 by singers Christina Amato and Dave Scott (Amato was featured on CMT’s “Born Country” show on singing mothers in 2007). The group plays shows around the Bay Area and beyond.

The Crab Cove Visitor Center will be open during the two-hour show, and they’ll have organized activities for families and children. They’ll also have food, premium beer and wine available for sale at the concert (no outside alcohol is permitted, so leave that bottle of wine at home).

They’ve also got free parking at Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach and at lots at Santa Clara at Webster and Taylor at Webster, and free, valet bicycle parking provided by BikeAlameda.

More information on the show is available on the West Alameda Business Association’s website. The show is being produced by the Bay Area country music station 95.7, The Wolf.
