More about the bands:
Inspired by artists ranging from Johnny Cash to Nirvana, Shelby’s songwriting style blends the angst and energy of 90’s alt-rock/grunge with the sensibility of Americana and roots rock. With a wealth of her own material and a group of carefully selected covers, Shelby’s high energy performances will remind you why you fell in love with rock & roll in the first place.
Equally at home on piano, guitar and ukulele, Sandy Lindop is a San Francisco native who has made music her life. Whether she’s harmonizing with her band, The Muted Jewel Tones, rockin’ out with the Dirty Cello band or swinging her way through jazz standards as a solo project, Sandy brings a fresh and effervescent sound to many projects.
Duo Gadjo’s music is inspired by the sounds of the 20’s and 30′, when jazz was the new thing and Paris was the place to be. Their style is often called ‘Gypsy Jazz’ as pioneered by the great guitarist Django Reinhardt who created this new genre by infusing the American art form with his French and Gypsy influences.
Duo Gadjo’s repertoire includes many French classics by Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Yves Montand among others, as well as standards from the Great American songbook.
From the streets of Paris to the French Quarter in New Orleans “ il n’y a qu’un pas” as the French say and it’s a small step which Duo Gadjo takes easily. Exchanging their Gypsy guitars for the washboard and the Dobro, they celebrate another aspect of their French American backgrounds with some New Orleans Blues and Jazz. Note: the word “Gadjo’’ in Romany language means the outsider.
Late For The Train
Late for the Train is a modern string band that feels both fresh and familiar. Drawing heavily from American folk & bluegrass, the San Francisco-based group delivers soulful and articulate arrangements of original and traditional music. The core ensemble consists of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists David Pascoe (guitar/mandolin), Laura Benson (fiddle), Thom Beneduci (stand-up bass), and Josh Haines (mandolin). Their debut album is set for release in the summer of 2020.
From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping! “When lead guitar is replaced by the sound of hot licks on a cello, blues, rock and bluegrass rise to a new dimension. Dirty Cello makes its style of string music to inspire audiences to swing, sway and dance.” Ashland Daily Tidings
