Joe & Hattie Craven, Steve Kahn

Enjoy an evening of rearranged pop songs for the folk tradition spanning the last 100 years with stunning 15 year old vocalist Hattie Craven, supported by her father, award winning multi-instrumentalist Joe Craven. This father/daughter team has created a celebration of music making by finding common ground between different generations with differing musical tastes and sensibilities. 

Hattie has built a reputation as one of the finest young, if not youngest, performers on the stages of the Strawberry Music Festival, California Worldfest, Kate Wolf Memorial Festival and the Millpond Music Festival – all to standing ovations. 

Creativity educator, former museum curator, festival emcee (from Telluride Bluegrass to Delfest) and recipient of the 2009 Folk Alliance Far-West Performer of the Year, Joe has made music with many folks – including Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, David Lindley and harmonica wizard Howard Levy, plus 7 years recording/touring with banjo fusionist Alison Brown and 17 years with the David Grisman Quintet. 

Hattie’s singing and her father’s instrumental prowess and good humor make a captivating show.

A review in Midwest Records recently described Steve Kahn as “a singer/songwriter that knows well from whence he speaks, (who sings) easy rolling, back porch music with rough edges that play well without sanding.”   

An award-winning singer/songwriter, Steve has shared the stage with performers ranging from Kate Wolf and Hoyt Axton to Dave Nachmanoff, David Maloney, Hugh Shacklett, Dick Holdstock and Allan MacLeod. He performs throughout Northern California and the West. Steve has recorded three albums and was recently recognized by the International Song Writer’s Association for his song, “Nothing but the Wind.” Steve will be joined by Kim Xuan Nguyen on bass and Steve Della Maggiora on lead guitar. 

"...what makes Steve unique is that he has this crazy, wonderful notion that we're all family--all of us humans--as we struggle to make meaning of life and find common ground with each other.  And this comes through in his music--hard hitting social commentary woven into poignant tales and softened with just a touch of sweet, memorable melodies..."  ~ Katherine Cassis
