11:30am-12:00pm - Sarah Fishleder
1:00-1:30pm - Alecia Haselton
2:30-3:00pm - Cement Ship
Sarah Fishleder (aka Sarah Songbird) has been singing for as long as she can remember. She spent years on stage performing in musical theater and after a long hiatus from the limelight, she has recently returned with a new passion - sharing the original music that has been flowing through her. Sarah’s sound is soulful and deep with a splash of playful jazzy funk and a positive uplifting message. She is so excited to be back at Santa Cruz VegFest where she had her first ever gig one year ago!
Alecia Haselton started her solo songwriting journey in 2018, having previously sang in diverse bands ranging in genre from pop punk to 60s mod/soul. Now, in addition to singing of course, she switches during her performance between playing the guitar, ukulele, autoharp, and keyboard! Her vocals have been compared to Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries with an Avril-Lavigne alt edge. Her alt rock/pop/folk songs are influenced by world travels and communal frequencies.
Maybe one is yours! Alecia is vegan as well!
Cement Ship is a local award winning band from Santa Cruz, CA, founded by singer-songwriter Tim Brady in 2017. From hometown shows, to touring the U.K., their original 'beach folk' sound has been enjoyed by many people (and dogs like them too).
