“Jaw-dropping awesome!!!” is how the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival describes the Kathy Kallick Band.
Kathy Kallick (guitar), Annie Staninec (fiddle), Greg Booth (dobro, banjo), Tom Bekeny (mandolin), and Cary Black (acoustic bass) look forward to proving them right at every show! The KKB is based along the west coast, from the SF Bay Area to Anchorage, but their powerful mixture of original and classic material, mirroring their distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary sensibilities — hot bluegrass and cool originals — has great appeal everywhere.
The latest Kathy Kallick Band album, Foxhounds, was #1 (!) on the 2016 Roots Music Report Contemporary Bluegrass Chart and in the 2016 Top Ten of the National Bluegrass Survey (Bluegrass Unlimited charts).
Led by one of the music’s extraordinary composers and vocalists, the Kathy Kallick Band has nearly as much fun as the audience when performing. The material is compelling, the tone ranges from humorous to bittersweet to soulful, the instrumental playing is electric, the vocals luminous, the presentation inclusive.
"This is truly a band effort, and their sound is traditional and unique. Kallick is a triple-threat as singer, songwriter, and masterful band leader; her band is top-flight and really delivers the goods. If you love traditional bluegrass, don’t miss this gem.” – Robert C. Buckingham, Bluegrass Unlimited
