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: Here Comes The Sun!

Feb 14, 2018

Mr. Sun, that is—the new talented multi-generational band led by fiddle master Darol Anger.  Mr. Sun will roll into the KALW studios this Saturday at 3 pm on Folk Music & Beyond.  They'll showcase some songs from their soon-to-be released live recording.  Darol has once again rounded up some exceptional young musicians to perform with him—Grant Gordy on guitar, Joe K. Walsh on mandolin, and Aidan O'Donnell on bass.
