Kathy Kallick Band Schedule
In their concert and festival performances, Kathy Kallick, Annie Staninec, Cary Black, Greg Booth, and Tom Bekeny feature selections from Horrible World and Foxhounds, two highly-acclaimed albums which each spent a year in the upper echelon of the National Bluegrass Survey (Bluegrass Unlimited chart). In addition, Foxhounds was a #1 album on the Roots Music Report Contemporary Bluegrass charts, and Horrible World was a #1 album (and the KKB a #1 Top Artist) on the Folk-DJ charts.
Their show includes powerful and compelling Kathy compositions; dazzling interpretations of lesser-known instrumentals led by Annie, Greg, and Tom; distinctive covers of a wide range of songs, with sources ranging from the Carter Family and Coon Creek Girls to Bill Monroe and Mac Martin to Rose Maddox and Richard Thompson; classics from the Good Ol’ Persons and earlier KKB releases; and plenty of new material.
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, and their presentation — ranging from electrifying to humorous to bittersweet to soulful — is always inclusive.
