Summer String Summit 2018
Dozens of world renowned acoustic musicians will gather from across the US, Saturday July 7, 2018, 7 p.m., at the historic Weed Palace Theatre for the 14th annual Summer String Summit, the vision and lifework of acoustic musicians and educators Tristan and Tashina Clarridge.

The Summit has earned a reputation as an evening of epic proportions, each July uniting a staggering array of the most influential and innovative acoustic performers, for a monumental journey of bluegrass, old-time, jazz, and Celtic music, with many special guests and spontaneous collaborations.

Six-time Grand National Fiddle Champions and northern California natives Tashina and Tristan Clarridge have grown up in the company of these musicians, living and breathing music since the age of two.
Tashina and I were privileged to grow up in an unusual way, which prepared us for the way this event unfolds.  We were very connected as a family, and music was at the heart of it all; we'd sometimes drive 2500 miles to go meet some musicians and get a lesson and go to a fiddle camp, then wed backpack into the woods for weeks at a time and practice fiddles in our tipi where we lived on the side of a mountain.  It was a really simple and beautiful way to grow up, and we want to offer to others something of what we've experienced says Tristan.    This is a gathering of some of the musical friends we've made as we travel through life..  This project isn't a business, it's a community.  And we'll be sharing a good taste of that community, in Weed, on July 7th.

This years performers include 5-time Grammy Winning Percussionist, Inventor & Composer Roy (Futureman) Wooten (of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones), Grammy Winning Singer and Revered Songwriter Peter Rowan (of Old And In The Way, Bill Monroe), Profound folk master Jody Stecher (influenced and collaborated with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, David Bromberg..), Masterful Irish folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Eamon OLeary, Fiddle phenomenon Brittany Haas (of Prairie Home Companion band, Crooked Still), Masterful Appalachian musicians John Herrmann & Chicken Train, Irish fiddle master Dale Russ, chambergrass innovators The Bee Eaters, and many more!
