PERFORMER SPOTLIGHT – MARLEY’S GHOST

Those endearing, Seattle-based Ghosts are lacing up their travelin’ shoes again this spring to head south for Strawberry! We couldn’t be happier to welcome back these purveyors of anything Americana—rock, roots, blues, bluegrass, country, and especially gone-world gospel gems.

“Marley’s Ghost has earned cult-band status over years of spirited musicianship, multi-part harmonies and irreverent humor.” – Paste Magazine

Humor aside, they’ve put multiple lifetimes of skill and soul into their sound, and it comes across with sincerity and depth. “The group sings with the heartfelt conviction that only those who embody music’s spirituality can convey.” – Relix 

We’re ready to feel the spirit. Bring on Marley’s Ghost!

PERFORMER SPOTLIGHT – HAWKTAIL

Hawktail is all-original music from an all-star string ensemble that takes you on a beautifully textured and exhilarating journey without using words. 

“Like the sounds of a forest or the symphony of the sea, Hawktail’s music has an organic quality—the sounds grow together in perfect harmony.” – Folk Alley

HAWKTAIL

Fiddler Brittany Haas, bassist Paul Kowert, and guitarist Jordan Tice each bring their own distinctive vibration and varied experience to a cohesive unit that was built from the ground up. 

“Individually, they shine. Collectively, they mesh.” Country Standard Time

Haas has lent her sound to Crooked Still, Live from Here, Steve Martin, and David Rawlings. Kowert is the virtuosic bassist for the Grammy-winning Punch Brothers. Tice is widely known for his exquisite guitar work and extraordinary tune-smithing. Together, they morph into Hawktail.

Bring your ears, hearts, and souls to our pine-studded Music Meadow this spring for a transporting Hawktail experience!

PERFORMER SPOTLIGHT – THE KATHY KALLICK BAND

Remarkable and beloved, Kathy Kallick is a big enchilada in the west coast bluegrass scene, with a discography as long as the Saturday morning Strawberry Stroll line. 

KATHY KALLICK BAND

Kallick’s exceptional career includes winning a Grammy and two IBMA Awards, receiving a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association, co-founding the internationally-acclaimed Good Ol’ Persons, and collaborating with the country’s top acoustic musicians – including her mighty band (for the past 15 years): Annie Staninec (fiddle), Greg Booth (dobro & banjo), Tom Bekeny (mandolin), and Cary Black (bass), all of whom provide sterling harmonies.

“Classic West Coast bluegrass, filled to the brim with driving rhythm, timeless bluegrass instrumental stylings, and a sense of freedom and exploration; Kallick’s deeply soulful voice and magnificent delivery shows she’s one of the greatest bluegrass vocalists of her generation or any other.” —David J. McCarty, Bluegrass Unlimited

Strawberry is pleased as punch to welcome The Kathy Kallick Band to the stage this spring!

PERFORMER SPOTLIGHT – PASCAL BOKAR’S AFROBLUEGRAZZ BAND

You might think combining the West African balafon (ancestor of the Marimba) with bluegrass style banjo sounds like a surprising combo, but as Pascal Bokar’s AfroBlueGrazz Band will show you, it makes perfect, blissful sense. 

Add to that some high-velocity be-bop scat guitar, fiddle, sabar drums, keyboards, bass, vocals, and you’ve got yourself Bokar’s brainchild – a whole new genre.

PASCAL BOKAR’S AFROBLUEGRAZZ BAND

“This eclectic cross-cultural mix brings together long lost musical relatives as a platform for Pascal’s rich guitar and vocal improvisation.” – Bay Area Latin Jazz Festival. 

While paying homage to Bokar’s Senegalese and Malian roots, AfroBlueGrazz clearly celebrates Afro-funk, blues, bluegrass, jazz, R&B and gospel at once, creating one big, happy party. 

Innovative, joyous, and compelling – we are super excited to join that party!
