Fresh tunes with North State roots
Shasta County Country Folk
Cottonwood singer-songwriter Erin Friedman has been playing with words, music and the truth for more than twenty years, hanging out on the corner where traditional country meets modern folk. An award-winning songwriter, Erin teams with her husband, bass player and vocalist, Craig Friedman, to form the duo Still Married. Their engaging tunes focus on the colorful landscape and characters of Shasta County, love, life and the messy things that make it all interesting. After twenty years of marriage, the couple shares an intuitive understanding, evident in their vocal blends, gentle rhythms and heartfelt harmonies.
Still Married uses acoustic guitar, electric and acoustic bass, expressive vocals and a dose of humor to weave their song stories. Whether they are extolling the virtues of enduring love or lamenting the demise of an unfortunate possum, their poetic lyrics and austere arrangements revive the tradition of "songwriter as storyteller." Still Married has released three all-original CDs: A Kiss Beneath the Sundial Bridge, The Shadow of Shasta and Sacramento River Whispers and they’re available in Redding at
