Come celebrate the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach – he’d be turning a cool 331 this week – with some of the finest young musicians in the Bay Area and beyond! The Junior Bach Festival is enjoying its own 63rd birthday, having been founded in Berkeley in 1953 by music teacher and pianist Tirzah Mailkoff.

It’s a party for David Grisman, the master of the mandolin, celebrating the release of a new album as well as his birthday! David has played with everyone from Stephane Grapelli to Jerry Garcia, from Doc Watson to Hal Blaine. Tonight he returns to his swing jazz sweet spot, joined by an all-star lineup of stalwarts – George Cole on guitar, George Marsh on percussion, Matt Eakle on flute, Jim Kerwin on bass, and Chad Manning on fiddle – and perhaps a few special guests!
