Pete Seeger Stage
Led by cellist Rebecca Roudman, who has shared the stage with everyone from Elvis Costello to Carlos Santana and Ry Cooder and Joan Baez, Dirty Cello presents unique and dynamic music that mixes virtuosic classical playing with the soul of blues, the fire of gypsy music and the beauty of modern folk music. Think B.B. King meets Mark O'Connor meets Yo-Yo Ma.
Always popular with a wide range of ticket buying audiences, Dirty Cello is at home at small intimate gigs to large festival type venues. Recent popular performances include Yoshi's in San Francisco, Napa City Nights, the Locomojo Festival, Global Winter Wonderland, Santa Clara University and an exciting 300 person sold out show at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre. Recently, Dirty Cello won the 2011 American River Music Festival Songwriter Showcase.
