Born in the Bay Area of San Francisco, in the years when the metal scene was really becoming stronger and stronger in that part of the States. Bands like Laaz Rockit, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Exodus, Death Angel are all seeing the light in the same years. Even though Vicious Rumors shared the same stages, venues and were (still are) even close friends to many of these young musicians, they focused on another music direction, only marginally influenced by the bay area thrash that in a few years will become very popular worldwide. VR, without a definite line-up, (between 1982 and 1985) plays everyhere in the US and appears on the compilations KMEL's "New Oasis", U.S. Metal vol. III and U.S. Metal vol.

Billy Strings plays hard and he lives hard, picking so fast and intensely that he’s known to break multiple strings per song, and basing the songs he writes on the hard lives he grew up around in the abandoned rural communities of America. His new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, taps into a deep vein of psychedelia in Americana, referencing everything from the Dead to Sturgill Simpson, but all underlaid by Billy’s undeniable virtuosity and his knowledge of the roots of American music. He’s one of the most beloved young bluegrass guitarists today within the bluegrass community, and his front porch in East Nashville is constantly filled up with Nashville’s best roots musicians just picking up a storm.

The tricky part of making the new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, was translating Billy Strings’ incendiary live show into the studio. Returning to his home state of Michigan, Billy enlisted acoustic roots wizard Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass) as producer, and centered the music around his new band, featuring Drew Matulich on mandolin with banjo prodigy Billy Failing and much-loved Nashville bassist Brad Tucker. Rich with special guests, Turmoil & Tinfoil shows off Billy’s East Nashville community of picking friends, among them Miss Tess, Molly Tuttle, John Mailander, Shad Cobb and Peter Madcat Ruth. Of special note is a virtuosic duet between Billy and bluegrass guitarist Bryan Sutton on “Salty Sheep” that shows the speed, precision, and creative craftsmanship of bluegrass when it’s done right.

Southern Indiana-bred singer-guitarist Reverend Peyton is the bigger-than-life front man of Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards.

Melanie, who became the voice of an era in one magical instant onstage at Woodstock, has been putting the pieces in order.
Pieces of a career, scattered by the winds of experience and assembled again by the force of love into the most personal and brilliant moments of her musical journey. Melanie is poised to enlighten new generations about what it means to sing with both passion and eloquence, to write at once with intelligence and emotion, and to inspire through song… and nobody does this better than Melanie.

Others learned this that night at Woodstock, where as a New York kid barely known outside of the coffeehouse circuit in Greenwich Village, she sang her song "Beautiful People" and inspired the first panorama of candles and cigarette lighters ever raised at a concert event. That, in turn, moved the young singer to write "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain"), which sold more than one million copies in 1970 and prompted Billboard, Cashbox, Melody Maker, Record World, and Bravo to anoint her as female vocalist of the year. Her single "Brand New Key," an infectious romp about freedom and roller skates, topped the charts in 1971.

And so her story began.

​Greeting Community Market Vendors!

We are looking forward to the start of the 18th year of the Flagstaff Community Market. With your hard work, the Community Market has grown to be one of the top markets in the State of Arizona. Thank you ALL for the hard work and dedication you bring to the Market and the local foods movement.

For those returning vendors, it is important to submit your application as early as possible to ensure you have a space for this season. Returning vendor applications must be received by April 1, 2018 to ensure a space for the season. The market has a waiting list so clarity is needed in order to accept other vendors. Growers/primary producers are always given priority over value added vendors in regards to space availability and reserved spaces.

For new value added/artisan vendors, please note that the Sunday Market is full for value added/artisan vendors until returning vendors send in their application for the 2018 season. Check out Flagstaff Urban Flea Market (see Urban Flea section of website) and Sunnyside Farmers Market (sunnysidecommunitymarket@gmail.com) as other venue options. FCM will be assisting non-profits in fundraising and, at times, may ask vendors to participate by donating items to raffle baskets. Non-profits will sell tickets for the baskets for fundraising purposes.

A few other important points: 1) Vendors other than growers must have a City of Flagstaff Transaction Privilege tax license (please call 928-779-7685 and ask for Tax and Licensing). 2) ALL value added vendors MUST have commercial insurance and list Flagstaff Community Markets, LLC as an additional insured. 3) All nest egg vendors must label/register according to Arizona Department of Agriculture requirements. Please visit http://www.azda.gov/licensing/Nest%20run%20egg%20-%20info%20sheet%20.pdf for info. Value added vendors must also show proof of commercial kitchen inspection by the County Health Department​.

Melanie, who became the voice of an era in one magical instant onstage at Woodstock, has been putting the pieces in order.
Pieces of a career, scattered by the winds of experience and assembled again by the force of love into the most personal and brilliant moments of her musical journey. Melanie is poised to enlighten new generations about what it means to sing with both passion and eloquence, to write at once with intelligence and emotion, and to inspire through song… and nobody does this better than Melanie.

Others learned this that night at Woodstock, where as a New York kid barely known outside of the coffeehouse circuit in Greenwich Village, she sang her song "Beautiful People" and inspired the first panorama of candles and cigarette lighters ever raised at a concert event. That, in turn, moved the young singer to write "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain"), which sold more than one million copies in 1970 and prompted Billboard, Cashbox, Melody Maker, Record World, and Bravo to anoint her as female vocalist of the year. Her single "Brand New Key," an infectious romp about freedom and roller skates, topped the charts in 1971.

And so her story began.

​Greeting Community Market Vendors!

We are looking forward to the start of the 18th year of the Flagstaff Community Market. With your hard work, the Community Market has grown to be one of the top markets in the State of Arizona. Thank you ALL for the hard work and dedication you bring to the Market and the local foods movement.

For those returning vendors, it is important to submit your application as early as possible to ensure you have a space for this season. Returning vendor applications must be received by April 1, 2018 to ensure a space for the season. The market has a waiting list so clarity is needed in order to accept other vendors. Growers/primary producers are always given priority over value added vendors in regards to space availability and reserved spaces.

For new value added/artisan vendors, please note that the Sunday Market is full for value added/artisan vendors until returning vendors send in their application for the 2018 season. Check out Flagstaff Urban Flea Market (see Urban Flea section of website) and Sunnyside Farmers Market (sunnysidecommunitymarket@gmail.com) as other venue options. FCM will be assisting non-profits in fundraising and, at times, may ask vendors to participate by donating items to raffle baskets. Non-profits will sell tickets for the baskets for fundraising purposes.

A few other important points: 1) Vendors other than growers must have a City of Flagstaff Transaction Privilege tax license (please call 928-779-7685 and ask for Tax and Licensing). 2) ALL value added vendors MUST have commercial insurance and list Flagstaff Community Markets, LLC as an additional insured. 3) All nest egg vendors must label/register according to Arizona Department of Agriculture requirements. Please visit http://www.azda.gov/licensing/Nest%20run%20egg%20-%20info%20sheet%20.pdf for info. Value added vendors must also show proof of commercial kitchen inspection by the County Health Department​.
