Small Potatoes in concert Oct. 10

FALLBROOK — Small Potatoes (a.k.a. Rich Prezioso and Jacquie Manning) chose their name in 1993, saying that if they didn’t make it, the name would be a reminder of their limitations, and if they did, it would be wryly amusing.

Since then, they have traveled a million miles while appearing on every major folk stage in the nation and being popular repeat performers.

Their music is wonderfully eclectic, as they say, “through carefully developed indecision,” covering cowboy to Celtic. If they have a motto, it is “Make ’em laugh, make ’em cry, make ’em think.”

Prezioso’s song “1,000 Candles, 1,000 Cranes” has been named by Rich Warren of WFMT Radio in Chicago as one of the most outstanding songs written in the last 50 years.

Manning and Prezioso have two great voices, fine guitar, some tin whistle, mandolin and bodhran for an act that is a truly rare blend of vocal and instrumental abilities.

They will appear in Fallbrook on Saturday, October 10, at 7:30 p.m. at the Fallbrook Woman’s Club, 238 West Mission. Tickets are sold at Major Market and the door. Call (760) 723-7255 for information.
