On Jan. 29, 2021, The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley hosted Rita Hosking and Sean Feder for a livestream concert. Soon after receiving the audio tracks, they, with Conrad Sisk and Steve O'Neill, released the concert as “Live from Lockdown," available as a CD or download. Their daughters, Hava Feder and Kora Feder, illustrated and designed the album cover.
Rita's father, originally from the mountains in Northern California, worked the night shift at a sawmill as a part of the area’s logging industry. Her great-grandfather, from Cornwall, England, was an underground gold miner in the region. The stories of her family and upbringing find their way into Rita’s songs on this album.
