Folk Music & Beyond: String Wizards Live

Jul 11, 2018

Join us this Saturday 3 pm on "Folk Music & Beyond" for the crème de la crème—string wizardry at its finest, starting first with members of the Shasta String Celebration.  Cellist Tristan Claridge leads the celebration, along with champion Texas-style fiddler Matthew Hartz and guitarist Sean Watkins (co-founder of Nickel Creek).  At 4 pm, renowned fingerstyle guitarist Peppino D'Agostino returns to the KALW studios, performing what he humbly calls his "minestrone" music.  

Folk Music & Beyond: Wake The Dead In Concert

Nov 1, 2017

Wake the Dead play rock grooves, hot Irish reels, haunting airs, and beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere. These worlds mesh seamlessly, true to the spirit of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts.  Tune in Saturday to hear this year’s DAY OF THE DEAD live recording of the band from Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, 3-5pm on Folk Music & Beyond.  Hosted by Sandy Miranda.

The Back Room in Berkeley will celebrate its one-year anniversary on April 15 when Hurricane Sam & the Hotshots bring their unique brand of “boogie, blues and jazz” to the intimate, brick-laden venue.
