Saturday August 24th from 8-10PM. The wide and deep roots of Americana music reach back into the West Coast's folk-rock scene just as much as they do the South's blues and country traditions. The husband-wife duo 3 Pairs of Boots, comprised of Andrew Stern and Laura Arias, is the latest evidence supporting the California case. Stern and Arias originally met through a “Singer Wanted” ad. Within a year, they were not just bandmates; they were also spouses.
