Counting Crows
Counting Crows originated in Berkeley, CA and gained popularity in the mid-nineties with the release of the hit single "Mr. Jones." Since then, the band, whose influences include Van Morrison, R.E.M., Nirvana and Bob Dylan and The Band, has sold more than 20 million records, received an Oscar nomination for "Accidentally in Love" (from "Shrek 2"), and despite several member changes, continued to flourish. Fronted by founding member Adam Duritz, the group frequently improvises on stage, adding new twists to familiar songs.

Country
Little Big Town
The group is unique in country music in its configuration of two men with two women. It is also unlike any other in that there is no single lead vocalist - all four are capable of taking lead lines, and do so. Also unusual is the fact that for most of their performances, the larger-than-life Little Big Town voices are accompanied solely by guitars.

Yosemite Lumber Company at Merced Falls Exhibit
Once the Yosemite Lumber Company was established in 1911, Merced Falls became the industrial center of our farming county. A little over 40 years later, the demise of the mill turned a thriving community into a ghost town. Today, nothing remains but crumbling foundations. This photo exhibit documents the community life and business operations of Merced Falls and its connected logging camps. In addition, a digital mapping display reconstructs the infrastructure of the sawmill and the living quarters. The exhibit will run through June 10.
