Blame Sally brings their Indi, Folk, Americana, Pop music to the Summer Nights stage at the Osher Marin JCC on Aug 9, 2014.

{Blame Sally} has brought originality together with a roots sensibility and pop accessibility.

Blame Sally creates an eclectic and undeniably original brand of folk pop that plays on the “indie edges of Americana”. Bringing together four unique voices and musical backgrounds, Blame Sally has forged a cohesive sound that is instantly recognizable and compelling and perfect for a beautiful outdoor concert at the Osher Marin JCC's Summer Nights stage.

With their decade plus of live performances and recordings, they have established a legacy of song combining country, folk, rock, Celtic and strains of classical music, which has “brought originality together with a roots sensibility and pop accessibility.” This local folk-rock quartet with an attitude, combines acoustic textures with Americana harmonies and an independent spirit.

They’ve shared stages with like-minded artists like Los Lobos, Ani DiFranco, Richard Thompson, Roseanne Cash, Joan Beaz and Greg Brown. In 2007, Severland, the Sally’s third album charted number one on XM Satellite Radio’s Starbuck’s XM Café, and Neil Young featured their protest song “If You Tell a Lie” on his Living with War site.
