The hard-driving Kathy Kallick Band visits Victoria from its San Francisco Bay home for a night of powerful bluegrass and roots music. Featuring tunes from the chart-topping Foxhounds album, plus instrumentals from award-winning fiddler Annie Staninec's first solo album. The evening includes classics from Kathy’s legendary Good Ol' Persons band, gems from the old time/country music repertoire, and more than a few surprises. Plus NEW STUFF!

Her mighty band includes young wizard Staninec on fiddle, with top veterans Tom Bekeny on mandolin, Cary Black on acoustic bass, and Greg Booth on dobro and banjo.

Kathy has won a Grammy and two IBMA Awards for her part on True Life Blues: The Songs Of Bill Monroe, and received a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association. She co-founded the internationally-acclaimed Good Ol' Persons, and performed and recorded with the Frank Wakefield Band, Laurie Lewis, and John Reischman. Kathy appeared on three high-profile Rounder collections of bluegrass songs by women, and has toured throughout North America, Europe and Japan.

"Kathy's working with the finest group she's ever assembled.”
- David McGee, Deep Roots

Led by one of the music's extraordinary composers and vocalists, the Kathy Kallick Band has nearly as much fun as the audience when performing. The material is compelling, the tone ranges from humorous to bittersweet to soulful, the instrumental playing is electric, the vocals luminous, the presentation inclusive. As was once said about another California band: They're not just the best at what they do; they're the only ones who do what they do.

"This is a top-notch band led by a woman with the warmest, richest voice in our music today."
- Katy Daley, WAMU's Bluegrass Country
