Share with Your People

Wild for the Yuba — SYRCL’s Dinner & Silent Auction fundraiser — is featuring one of the hottest up-and-coming bands from the North State, Broken Compass Bluegrass.

On Mother’s Day weekend, the group performed with Poor Man’s Whiskey at the reopening of the Sierra Nevada Big Room in Chico, CA  — to a sold-out crowd. Reports of their energetic, stellar performance have already reached Nevada City.

Based in northern California, Broken Compass Bluegrass includes Sam Jacobs, Kyle Ledson, Django Ruckrich, & Mei Lin Heirendt. Emerging as a band in 2021, the group has already been recognized for their tight arrangements, tasteful musicianship, and distinguished songwriting skills. The acoustic band’s genre is bluegrass / jamgrass. Their fretboard mastery and angelic harmonies add extra depth and dimension to their live shows which captivate their audiences. Creative and melodic original works are intertwined with a unique perspective of your favorite cover songs.

They perform frequently in Nevada County and the music festival circuit, having played at Jerry Bash, the Strawberry Music Festival, Hot Summer Nights, the Crazy Horse Saloon, the Hangtown Music Festival and more.

On June 3 at 6pm at the Wheelhouse, they’ll open Wild for the Yuba as SYRCL celebrates its 40th anniversary and raises money for its scholarship fund, outdoor education programs, River Ambassadors and the Yuba River Cleanup.
