Triple Chicken Foot
Triple Chicken Foot is a Los Angeles based Old Time stringband. Having played together for more than five years, The Foot has honed their chops and focused in on playing Old Time music rooted in tradition. Spending time with veteran players around Los Angeles and the country, they have soaked up knowledge and techniques handed down through the years. The Foot finds their voice through their repertoire of tunes and songs, be it gospel songs, archaic banjo tunes, or crooked fiddle tunes. Most recently they have become a powerful new dance band on the Square Dance & Contra scene by teaming up with caller Cory Marie Podielski, who has been learning square dance calling from Susan Michaels, as well as joining forces with fiddler, Joe Wack and banjo player, Steve Lewis as the Brownbaggers. They have also recently finished recording their second full length CD titled Tar Rivers.
"Incredible, hard-core, hard-drivin' bluegrass!"
- Ray Edlund, KPFA Radio
Dark Hollow has been rocking the Northern California bluegrass scene for over 10 years with their fun-loving, high-energy shows. The group regularly brings down the house with their own brand of on-fire musicianship.
Led by the powerhouse voice of John
Kornhauser, Dark Hollow performs traditional favorites and slam-bang originals with equal gusto. The group's virtuoso musicianship, love of tunes, melodies, harmonies and driving
bluegrass rhythms blends together to make a traditional sound spiced up with a bit of home-grown joie de vivre.
From a cozy bar hidden in a beach
neighborhood to a family-friendly barbeque house, from a raucous bluegrass festival stage to the Freight and Salvage concert hall, Dark Hollow has played 'em all and knows how to put on a show.
This group of talented musicians can really make an audience feel the bluegrass spirit!
Nobody From Nashville
Nobody from Nashville is a new, up and coming San Francisco Bay Area string band. We all met in the summer of 2011 at a popular bluegrass festival in California where we discovered that once we started jamming together, nobody wanted to stop and the band was born. Full disclosure: none of us is from Nashville, though several of us have visited.
$8.00 - $15.00
