Kathy Kallick bandKathy Kallick is at it again, writing new songs, releasing new albums, and cooking up a bluegrass storm on stage. Singout! Magazine calls her "one of the best songwriters in bluegrass and acoustic music, always coming up with interesting, sometimes playful, always sure-handed songs" and praises her band as "a wonderful combination of youth and experience." Tom Bekeny sings and plays mandolin and fiddle, Greg Booth sings and plays dobro and banjo, Cary Black sings and plays bass, Annie Staninec sings and plays fiddle and clawhammer banjo, and together with Kathy on guitar and vocals, the band sizzles and swings on compelling originals and bluegrass classics based in the Bill Monroe tradition.

Kathy has been leading bands ever since she co-founded the groundbreaking bluegrass quintet the Good Ol' Persons in 1975. She's won a Grammy and two awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, and recorded 19 albums, including her latest, Cut to the Chase, a collection of new songs that tell poignant and powerful stories. Bluegrass Now calls her an "exquisite storyteller" and a "profound songwriter," and says that "her singing has always been earthy and passionate." For an evening of wonderful new music rooted deep in American tradition, catch the Kathy Kallick Band at the Freight!

 

Hattie and Joe CravenJoe Craven, a remarkably intuitive and highly versatile musician, has made music with folks ranging from multi-string instrumentalist David Lindley to blues slide guitar master Roy Rogers to Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, and groups from Psychograss to The Persuasions to The Horseflies. He was percussionist and fiddler for the David Grisman Quintet for 17 years, and special guest with the Alison Brown Quartet for 7 years. Jambands.com says, “The man recognizes no boundaries. He just won’t accept that no one is supposed to be that good at everything.”

At age 13, Joe’s daughter Hattie has been performing with her dad for the past 5 years, and recently released her debut album. Like Joe, Hattie’s music encompasses traditional folk, jazz, reggae, Latin, and other roots music.
