Eight Gigs: Chris Webster and Nina Gerber

Fri., April 17, 8 p.m., Palms Playhouse, $20

Chris Webster and Nina Gerber have deep roots in the region and draw from the roots of American music. Hints of '50s-era rockabilly mix with solid storytelling in “Fizz” from their collaborative album Apple Blossom Lane. Webster's voice is unique; she clearly understands that it is an instrument and plays it as such from the soulful “Lay Me Down Easy” to the bluesy sound of “Sitting Here in Limbo” to the more country-rock “Wild Ride.” Gerber's guitar playing is simply exquisite to hear and watch. Their rendition of “Over the Rainbow” is all Webster and Gerber. They've performed for a quarter-century and are always spot on. 13 Main Street in Winters, www.chriswebstermusic.com.
