Kathy Kallick and her exciting band are making a stop in Vancouver to share the music from their new album, Between the Hollow & the High-Rise, which is currently riding high on both US national bluegrass charts. Bluegrass, old time, and folk music fans alike will enjoy their compelling original songs and distinctive treatments of classics, in a memorable showcase filled with soulful singing, sizzling playing, and an engaging presentation.
Kathy Kallick has been leading bluegrass bands (including the semi-legendary Good Ol’ Persons) since 1975. She continues to evolve as one of the music’s extraordinary composers and vocalists, releasing 15 albums, which include over 100 of her original songs, and garnering international recognition.
Along the way, she has … won a Grammy and two IBMA Awards for her part on True Life Blues: The Songs Of Bill Monroe … had three title tracks and albums (Call Me A Taxi, Walkin’ In My Shoes, and Warmer Kind Of Blue) each spend close to a year in the upper echelon of the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey (“the charts”) … performed and recorded with the Frank Wakefield Band … appeared on three high-profile Rounder collections of bluegrass songs by women … written and recorded award-winning music for children and families … toured throughout North America, Europe, and Japan … received a “Lifetime Membership Award” from the California Bluegrass Association … and … collaborated with some of the country’s top acoustic musicians – including her fabulous current band.
A profound songwriter and expressive singer, San Franciscan Kathy Kallick is a mountain gal at heart. Her singing has always been earthy and passionate. As a songwriter, she knows how to pen beautiful impressionistic pieces with memorable contemporary messages. A troubadour and exquisite storyteller, (her) arrangements are tightly crafted, with each song given its own non-formulaic treatment. —Joe Ross, BLUEGRASS NOW
Praise for Between the Hollow & the High-Rise:
A selection of material that should leave most any fan of traditional bluegrass yearning for more, with a great mix of well written, heartfelt originals, and arrangements with some subtle twists and turns that are sure to please a mindful ear. The Kathy Kallick Band plays hard-drivin’ traditional bluegrass that harkens back to the dirt-floor rural up bringing of those who laid the music’s foundation long ago. And make no mistake they do a great job of it. – Travis Tackett, BLUEGRASS JOURNAL
