Kathy Kallick Band
The Kathy Kallick Band is based along the west coast Kathy and Tom are from the San Francisco Bay Area, Annies from Portland, Cary from Seattle, and Greg from Anchorage but their powerful mixture of original and classic material, mirroring their distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary sensibilities, has great appeal everywhere.
There is a tendency to think of West Coast bluegrass as being softer, jazzier, and somehow other than traditional. This can be the case, but there is also a school of bluegrass in Northern California which has, from the beginning, been steeped in Monroe-based tradition as well as welcoming to women and original songs.
Kathy Kallick has been leading bands in this traditional brand of West Coast bluegrass for many years, and continues to evolve as one of the musics extraordinary composers and vocalists. Foxhounds is her 20th album, recordings which include nearly 150 of her original songs.
Foxhounds is also the fifth album for the Kathy Kallick Band. Each of their four previous releases has spent a year in the upper echelon of the national bluegrass charts, and Foxhounds promises to be no exception. The material is compelling and varied, the instrumental playing is dazzling and inventive, the vocals luminous and extraordinary. And theyre truly a band, listening to and sparked by each other, contributing to the songs and the sound as a whole.
