KALW's Saturday music hosts join forces to present a five-hour folk extravaganza of continuous live music performed by some of the Bay Area's finest talent. Enjoy the Scottish fiddling of Alasdair Fraser, the powerhouse vocals of Teresa Trull and Barbara Higbie, the original songs of Caren Armstrong, and the homegrown bluegrass of Them Boys and the Sycamore Slough String Band. Here's the schedule:
Europe's premier bluegrass band, Red Wine, is coming to the Bay Area from their home in Genoa, Italy. Martino Coppo and Silvio Ferretti recently celebrated the band's 30th anniversary by adding a couple of 20-somethings to the group, and Red Wine sounds better than ever.
You'll hear music from six Red Wine releases, including their latest (a world-wide radio debut!), to get you ready for concerts in Mountain View, Berkeley, and Winters.
