Rafe & Clelia Stefanini
Rafe Stefanini needs no introduction to Old Time music audiences. He is undoubtedly one of the finest and truest interpreters of the genre, with a vast repertoire of fiddle and banjo tunes that reaches back into the 19th century. For almost 30 years his playing has delighted people around the world. Our favorite recording of his is Train on the Island with Bruce Molesky on the album Big Hoedown. His recorded work spans 2 decades and over 20 albums. Rafe was born in Italy, but his love for Old Time music brought him to the US, where he has been a permanent resident since 1983. Clelia Stefanini is following in her father's footsteps with skills on the fiddle and guitar far exceeding her age of 17, with a style solidly grounded in the older tradition. Together they present an entertaining show that includes rousing fiddle duets, old time ballads and songs and banjo tunes.

Opening the night is The Lonesome Holler String Band. This is a rare chance for old time music fans in Marin to see this iconic Sonoma County band. If you love great old time music, you shouldn't miss this chance to hear them. The Lonesome Holler String Band is dedicated to preserving and playing the rural music of the 1920's and 1930's. They've been doing this for a long time now under various and sundry band names and this is the latest one. Their present lineup is Evan Morgan on guitar, Steve Wharton on banjos and autoharp, Chris Carney on fiddle and mandolin, and Sue Walters on bass. Steve and Chris played under the name "Acme String Ensemble" for about 20 years and Evan was part of that band for 5 or 6 of those years. They still play the same great old time music which you can hear on their web site. Between the four of them, they've played all over California and points East at festivals, winerys, clubs and bars, and parties. You name it, one of them has probably played there.
