John M. Studebaker International Wheelbarrow Races

Since 1939, Johnny’s memory has been celebrated with a wheelbarrow race at the annual El Dorado County Fair in Placerville. In 1854, Studebaker was a well-known name in these parts. He came to the foothills seeking his fortune in gold, but made his fortune building wheelbarrows for the miners. The race involves maneuvering wheelbarrows loaded with sandbags over railroad trestles, through water and over steep hills to the finish line.  Open to both men and women, it’s not for the faint of heart.

James Barre

Pop newcomer James Barre—himself a study in contrasts: a mere 15 years old, but every inch of 6'4"; a youthful countenance offset by startling wisdom and gravitas; a knack for cheeky earworms and also earnest collaborations with industry heavy hitters like Sam Farrar of Maroon 5; an eagerness to cite both Jimi Hendrix and Ed Sheeran as influences.
“I want the audience to listen to something and immediately connect to it,” James continues.” Because I’m connected to music. Maybe there’s something about the melody. Maybe there’s one word or line among all the other lyrics. If it can remind you of something that’s happened in your life, or of something you felt, or of something you saw, then we’ve connected. To make that connection, to feel something based off of a three-minute piece of music, then I think that’s beautiful. I think that’s awesome.”

Her partner, Robbie, brings it on the acoustic guitar with driving rhythms, tight arrangements and percussion hits that give a huge sound on stage.
