Sara Grey with Kieron Means Perform at Red Barn for Central Coast Scottish Society




Sara Grey and Kieron Means - Dynamic Ballad Duo - for schedule


This coverage started out as simply an event posting of the Sara Grey appearance for the Los Osos Scottish Society on the Central California Coast. But when we explored, "Who is Sara Grey?" the results were astounding. Of the recording and music artists presented to us for posting in our California events calendar, few seem to have a following, and success in booking on tour than does this twosome of Sara Grey, the ballad singer who plays the banjo, and her musical companion, Kieron Means, who plays the guitar. They hail from Perthshire, Scotland, and leave their impressive cultural imprint wherever they perform around the globe.


For instance, a recent peak at Grey's web site shows that she is booked and touring much of the time. She seems to capably select her regions to perform and fill here schedule, with time off for writing songs and rest, we assume. On tour in the UK in the spring 2009, Grey had a hefty 3-month schedule of touring with gigs in no less that 30 locations!


On the West Coast, USA, Grey and Means appear in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Washington and Oregon. In California, there are several opportunities to catch Sara Grey.

Where to stay in Los Osos / Morro Bay Hotels: While most hotels in this region offer ocean-close or ocean view accommodations, the prices are mid-range for beach hotels and the offerings seem seldom to top a AAA two-star rating. What does that mean? You are getting simply the basics. We try to stay in a three-star range on our trips, but sometimes you can't pull it off. Local hotels near this event include Best Western El Rancho 2460 Main Street, Morro Bay, CA;  Best Western San Marcos Inn 250 Pacific Street, Morro Bay; and Inn At Morro Bay 60 State Park Road, to name a few.
