Headliner - New Monsoon
San Francisco rock quintet New Monsoon is the collaborative vehicle for the vocal and instrumental prowess of founding members Bo Carper (acoustic guitar and banjo), Jeff Miller (electric guitar) and Phil Ferlino (keys). Now well into its second decade of national touring, the band also features the muscular rhythm section of Marshall Harrell (electric bass) and Michael Pinkham (drums).
New Monsoon's original compositions are an experience of musical textures, rhythms, ideas and moods. Distilling the sounds of Psychedelic and Southern Rock, Delta Blues, and World music, New Monsoon melds a diverse host of influences including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers band, bluesman Mississippi John Hurt and world music pioneers Shakti. Their 3-part harmony vocals also harken Crosby, Still, Nash and Young and The Band. At any given performance, the audience enjoys a synthesis of genres from bluegrass to reggae, funk to down home rock 'n' roll.
Opener - Kathy Kallick Band
The Kathy Kallick Band is based along the west coast — Kathy and Tom are from the San Francisco Bay Area, Annie’s from Portland, Cary from Seattle, and Greg from Anchorage — but their powerful mixture of original and classic material, mirroring their distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary sensibilities, has great appeal everywhere.
There is a tendency to think of West Coast bluegrass as being softer, jazzier, and somehow “other” than traditional. This can be the case, but there is also a school of bluegrass in Northern California which has, from the beginning, been steeped in Monroe-based tradition — as well as welcoming to women and original songs.
Kathy Kallick has been leading bands in this traditional brand of West Coast bluegrass for many years, and continues to evolve as one of the music’s extraordinary composers and vocalists.
