We are very excited to celebrate the new release of a new Kathy Kallick Band recording with a special Seattle Concert.

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 since co-founding the internationally-acclaimed band, Good Ol’ Persons, in 1975. She continues to evolve as one of the music’s extraordinary composers and vocalists, releasing 15 albums, which include over 100 of her original songs. Along the way, she has:

  • won a Grammy and two IBMA Awards for her part on True Life Blues: The Songs Of Bill Monroe …
  • had three title tracks and three albums — Call Me A Taxi, Walkin’ In My Shoes, and Warmer Kind Of Blue – each spend a year in the upper echelon of the Bluegrass Unlimited National Survey (“the charts”) …
  • appeared on three high-profile Rounder collections of bluegrass songs by women, as well as noteworthy collections of songs about baseball, trains, spiritual matters, families, broken hearts, Christmas, and mothers …
  • performed and recorded with the Frank Wakefield Band …
  • written and recorded award-winning music for children and families …
  • toured throughout North America, Europe, and Japan  …
  • received a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association … and …
  • collaborated with the country’s top acoustic musicians – including her fabulous current intergenerational band whose members also have played with David Grisman, Laurie Lewis, Darol Anger, High Country, Bearfoot, Spring Creek, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, and Town Mountain, among others. They are:


Tom Bekeny – mandolin & vocals
Greg Booth – dobro, banjo & vocals
Annie Staninec – fiddle & vocals, and recent IBMA Award Winner!
Cary Black – bass and vocals

This concert not only celebrates the release of the band’s latest recording entitled “Foxhounds”, but it also celebrates the release of Annie’s latest recording and her book of fiddle tunes.  This will be a triple release concert!

The concert begins at 7:30 PM.  Tickets are $18, ($2 discount for members, students and seniors), $9 for youth. Day of show tickets at the door are $2 more.
