Happy Birthday Folk Music & Beyond!


Join us this Saturday (10/26)  at 3 pm for Folk Music & Beyond's  25th birthday celebration!  The show started October 1988 and we've been going strong, thanks to your support and the support of our local music community.  We'll stroll down memory lane and listen to highlights from the many live concerts that have taken place in the KALW studios these past 25 years.   The breadth and depth of musical talent has been astounding--Irish fiddler Martin Hayes & guitarist Dennis Cahill, the Black family, the Vasen trio from Sweden, the Bay Area womens ensemble Kitka, blues singers Chris Smither and Eric Bibb, John Gorka, John McCutcheon.  And we'll listen back to our very first live performance in November 1988 with Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser and guitarist Jody Stecher.
