FEATURING CANYON JOHNSON

We're so excited to have our friends, Canyon Johnson back for our monthly night of bluegrass music! They are sharing the stage with the Bearcat Duo. Bring your friends!! This is sure to be a memorable night! 

CANYON JOHNSON is a dynamic bluegrass band based in the San Francisco Bay Area, drawing from the rich traditions and timeless themes of the music’s founders while making it fresh and relevant to the present with intricate arrangements, soulful harmonies, and tasteful picking.From the hard driving tunes of Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers and Red Allen to the poignant songs of Hazel Dickens and the enchanting melodies of traditional fiddle tunes, Canyon Johnson will get your feet tapping and put a smile on your face.

The BEARCAT DUO (Robin Fischer and Rowan McCallister) like to play old songs with a young attitude. Equally at home busking on a street corner or playing on stage at a Bluegrass festival, The Bearcat Duo energize audiences with a mix of rippin' old time fiddle tunes, traditional bluegrass numbers, rags, and songs with the sassiest lyrics they can dig up. They have been making an name for themselves both in duo formation and with the full quartet The Bearcat Stringband.
