We have had to cancel the show due to Rachel suffering a broken ankle on October 14th. We will be rescheduling when she is in the area again. Please wish her well!

Rachel Sedacca is a singer/songwriter from Ventura County, California. She is coming to Las Alturas House Concerts as part of her 2008 Patience Pays Tour (more about that in a minute). Rachel’s diverse repertoire includes her Americana flavored originals, as well as some favorites that she says, “need to be sung”, including tunes from a variety of artists, including Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Jimi Hendrix, Alison Krause, Dolly Parton, Paul Simon, Gillian Welch and others.. Inspired by the Janis of all trades style of Bonnie Raitt as well as the sounds of Lucinda Williams and Sheryl Crow, Rachel points to years of Grateful Dead shows steeping her in an eclectic musical tea, appreciation for the fusing of genres and the ways of the road. That big smile in her pictures reflects the energy and joie de vivre at the core of her being.

Patience Pays Tour Postcard
On the road, Rachel is home away from home in her 1971 converted school bus “Patience”, complete with kitchen, restroom and her welcoming master bedroom that boasts her comfortable mattress from home. “This is what keeps my feet on the ground”, she says. Rachel toured 5,600 miles over 7 weeks in 2006. The “Patience Pays” tour will take her in a big loop from home through through California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and home again.

Rachel has two albums out and was a first place winner in the American Songwriter Lyric Contest. Now you can hear her in person, live in the living room. We will have a wonderful time with great songs from a lovely songstress. In Rachel’s words as we were arranging the date, “Yay! Let’s go for it! The most important thing to me is that I have a great trip! …This is gonna work out perfect!”
