A fundraiser for our friend, Pitt Kinsolving, was held at the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena 8/20/12, featuring The Witcher Brothers. It was a wonderful show, attended by Pitt, and a solid sum was raised. Pitt's needs will continue. Find an update here.


The Caltech Folk Music Society has become the Pasadena Folk Music Society, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization! We will have the same great shows at Caltech with the same low prices. Tickets will continue to be sold at the Caltech Ticket Office. We'll be in transition for a little while (website, email address, etc), but if you aren't on our email list, be sure to sign up to be notified about each concert. Write the Folk Music Society at folkmusic@caltech.edu

And by the way, all of our concerts are held after Caltech business hours, so parking in the school lots is free!

Jeni & Billy and the Big Picnic Band
Saturday, November 15 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Jeni and Billy will be making their second appearance in our series. They put out a new double CD recording last year, Sweet Song Coming 'Round, which consists of live recordings from their western tour the year before. Now they have a brand new recording, Picnic in the Sky that we are looking forward to hearing. Though they write many of their own songs, this is American roots music at its best. Jeni hails from Jewell Ridge, Virginia, coal country in Appalachia, where she was influenced by church singing and family sing-alongs. She's also a storyteller and writer who earned a Masters degree in literature and studied under Irish writer, Paul Muldoon. She traces her vocal style to Virginia Lowe, the blind music minister of the Friendly Chapel Church on Smith Ridge, the Appalachian community in which Jeni spent her childhood summers. While her singing has been compared to the lonesome voices of Maybelle Carter and Iris Dement, her writing has been likened to that of Southerners Carson McCullers, Flannery O’Connor, and Lee Smith. Billy Kemp, a Baltimore native, embraced the sound of country music in the nearby community of Oella – the home of Appalachian migrants who came to the city looking for work in the mills. Fired on by dreams of the Grand Ole Opry and his passion for the sound of Flatt & Scruggs, Billy headed to Nashville and toured with country bands all over the US, Canada, Europe, and right onto the stage of the Opry. He went on to become a music instructor and producer of various roots music projects. Together, Jeni and Billy give us wonderful singing and harmonies, backed by guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and bass. Their music is straightforward and pure. It is difficult to tell the original songs from the traditional ones. We dare you not to smile as you listen to their song, "If I Ever Get Ten Dollars." One listener commented, “This is either the most sophisticated simple music or the simplest sophisticated music I’ve ever heard.”

September bulletin: We just got word that Jeni and Billy have arranged to have a full band for this show! Joining them will be Craig Eastman (fiddle, lap Steel, and mandolin), Dillon O'Brian (keyboards and harmony vocals), Denny Weston Jr. (percussion), Dave Way (percussion & guitar) and maybe (if he can resolve schedule conflicts) David Jackson (bass & accordion). The Big Picnic Band will make a great even more exciting! Don't miss it!


T Sisters
Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for Caltech students and children.
Advance tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652, or from outside the greater Pasadena area, call toll-free at 1-888-2CALTECH (1-888-222-5832)

We were planning to take December off, and just kick back and enjoy the return of Danú to the larger stage of Beckman Auditorim (Big Beckman) in Caltech's Public Events series the next week. But late in September, we were contacted by the agent for T Sisters, an Oakland trio who would be down this way in early December. We did a little checking (see this Youtube of them doing their song, "Molasses" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erhnhuJ5-N4), and then we found that they performed at the Kate Wolf Festival and at the Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite, two major summer festivals in California. Our former sound man, Roger Sherman, heard them at Strawberry, liked them, and said they got a great response. Their first recording was produced by Laurie Lewis and the second one was co-produced by famed mandolinist, Mike Marshall. They are clearly an act on the rise, and we decided to get them in our series before they get too big to afford. They are just too good to miss.

The T Sisters are siblings Erika, Rachel, and Chloe Tietjen, and they've been singing together all their lives. Their voices and their harmonies are outstanding, and they write most of their own songs, as well as including some covers, such as their stunning version of Paul Simon's American Tune and the traditional Wind and Rain. They sing mostly with guitar accompaniment, and they may be joined by a bassist and/or manolinist, and their a cappella songs are not to be missed. One might think of the Andrews Sisters, from past, or more recently, the Roches. Maybe a closer comparison would be the rootsy sirens from the film, O Brother, Where Art Thou? Expect some brazenly sassy fun and playful theatricality from these three women, each of them with a distinct personality.



Danú: A Christmas Gathering: Féile na Nollag
Saturday, December 13, 2014 (8:00 PM)
in Beckman Auditorium (building 91 on the map)
presented by Caltech Campus Programs, along with the Caltech Folk Music Society as marketing partner

Regular prices are: $32, $27, $22; $10 Youth and there is a $5 discount if you mention the Pasadena Folk Music Society when ordering or buying tickets at the door! Advance tickets are available at the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Danú performed in our own series twice, back in 1997 and then again in 2001. They were a young, newly formed Irish band, based in Waterford, just starting to make a name for themselves. Now, they are better known and command a larger audience than we can handle, so Caltech Public Events has booked them for a special Christmas show and they will extend a $5 discount to anyone who mentions the Pasadena Folk Music Society when buying tickets in advance or at the door. Known for their assortment of jigs, polkas, reels and songs, back in 2001 they featured the fine singing of Clarán Ó Gealbháin. They have had a few personnel changes in the intervening years, including the addition of a new lead singer, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh from Dunquin in County Kerry, their first female member. Clarán has left the band, but founding member, Dónal Clancy (son of Liam Clancy of the Clancy Brothers) has returned. This show at Caltech will be a homecoming, as they get ready to celebrate their 20th year anniversary in 2015. Featuring flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, bouzouki, and vocals (Irish and English), they have performed around the globe and recorded seven critically acclaimed albums.

Danu's agent describes this special holiday show, Féile na Nollag' (A Christmas Gathering), as follows. Christmas in Ireland is one of the most important holidays for families and friends, as many Irish people living abroad come home to gather in celebration. Local community choirs singing traditional songs for Christmas and Wrens Day (Dec. 26) are a common site throughout Ireland each December. Music and dance gatherings, in communities both urban and rural, have often combined for generations to offer a great variety of songs, music, and stories for the holidays. Join us in the fun!


Jim Malcolm
Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Jim Malcolm has performed in our series four times and also once or twice when he was a member of Old Blind Dogs. The pattern has been to have him every other year, but because of a scheduling conflict in 2014, we're making up for missing him last January. Jim continues to be one of Scotland's finest singers, accompanying himself on 6 and 12 string guitar, as well as harmonica. Living Tradition called him, “One of the finest singing voices in Scotland in any style” and The Scotsman wrote, “Jim Malcolm will just melt you in your seat.” In performance, he splits his time between singing original songs, many of which end up getting recorded by others, and he sings songs written or passed down by some of Scotland's fine writers, including early ballads from Robert Burns, Robert Tannahill, William Soutar, and his great hero Jim Reid.


Celtic Fiddle Festival
Friday, February 13, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $20, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Many have asked when the Folk Music Society will be bringing Irish fiddler, Kevin Burke back, and we've been working on that for awhile. Sometimes things just fall into place, and we are not only getting Kevin, but we have the entire Celtic Fiddle Festival, featuring Christian Lemaître (Brittany), André Brunet (Québec), and Nicholas Quemener (Brittany). The group was founded by Kevin and the late Johnny Cunningham, formerly of Silly Wizard, 20 years ago. The band is 3 fiddlers, along with Nicholas on guitar. The Philadelphia Weekly described them, “among the world's greatest Celtic fiddlers...breathtaking virtuosity.” The Washington Post wrote, "Three of the finest folk violinists anywhere. A mastery of regional fiddle styles with alternately soulful, dazzling and nuanced performances." We're very proud to have this ensemble in our series and we hope you will join us!


Sox in the Frying Pan
Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: To be announced.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Socks in the Frying Pan is young band just now making a name for themselves on the international scene. We are only too happy to help introduce them to the US audience and vice versa. Having gained a fan-base from four years of gigging around the west of Ireland, this exciting group have recently started branching out and have been well received for their modern traditional style and energetic approach to music. This, combined with an acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmony and an obvious love for live performance, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way. The band consists of two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo and they are accompanied by Aodán Coyne on guitar and vocals. Their first CD, Socks in the Frying Pan consists of songs, reels, jigs, a waltz and a polka. Come and enjoy this up and coming band!


Katy Moffatt
Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Katy Moffatt is a fine Texas-born singer who has written a most impressive body of songs over the years. Her signature sound is her heart-melting voice, which she uses to great effect on songs that range from country-tinged story ballads to Hank Williams honky-tonk country numbers, and more. She also has a knack for finding great songs by others. Accompanying herself on guitar, she is at home with many styles of music. This performance will feature a special program, Midnight Radio: A One-Woman Show in which she highlighted the role of women and the power of radio through songs of personal history and the telling of history through song. You will hear songs from the point of view of Sojourner Truth, Audrey Williams (wife of Hank Williams), and Marina Oswald (widow of Lee Harvey Oswald). Katy weaves these perspectives together into a story that is at once singular and universal.


Old Blind Dogs
Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Five years have slipped by since we had Scotland's Old Blind Dogs in our series. After years of trying, we arranged the return of this fine Scottish band that features a blend of fine instrumental and vocal talents in their playing of traditional and original music. Old Blind Dogs, from Aberdeenshire, on Scotland’s northeast coast, consists of Jonny Hardie (fiddle, mandolin, guitar and backing vocals), Ali Hutton (pipes, whistles & guitar), Aaron Jones (bouzouki, guitar, bass, and vocals), and Fraser Stone (percussion). Over the years Old Blind Dogs has evolved and grown into one of Scotland's favorite folk bands, being named Folk Band of the Year at the 2007 Scots Trad Music Awards. Their soaring fiddle playing, stirring pipes, and fine singing, punctuated by African percussion, will certainly resonate in this small auditorium.


Bryan Bowers
Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Though other talented folks have followed in his footsteps, Bryan Bowers continues to be the pinncale of autoharp playing in the folk music world, and he delivers a fine mix of songs, instrumentals, and stories. Six years have slipped by since his last visit here, as we could never coordinate a date that fit with his annual visit to California for the California Autoharp Gathering in the Fresno area in May. We found a way this year and we're proud to welcome Bryan back.

Born in Yorktown, Virginia, Bryan was profoundly affected by the singing of field and railroad workers, and this style of singing is an important part of his sound. It wasn't until college that he took up playing the autoharp, but he quickly became a master of the instrument that he has redefined over the years. He is as important to modern autoharp playing as Earl Scruggs has been to the banjo. In his hands, the autoharp has amazing capabilities of notes and chords, and his playing brings to mind a full orchestra, with its full-bodied and varied sound. He mixes a few original songs with some gospel, traditional, and songs of current songwriters, many of them very funny, such as "Zen Gospel Singing." Bryan's humor, easy manner, and natural storytelling abilities make his performances a pure delight.


Susie Glaze and the Hilonesome Band
Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Beckman Institute Auditorium (building 74 on the map)

Admission: $15, with $5 for Caltech students and children.
Tickets may be obtained from the Caltech Ticket Office. For information, call (626) 395-4652.

Susie Glaze & The Highlonesome Band are coming back for a fourth appearance at Caltech! "Susie is justifiably endorsed by Appalachian music legend Jean Ritchie, and the band has a fine repertoire of beyond-bluegrass originals from its chief songwriter, Rob Carlson. They can take you up in the hollars, or sound like a female-fronted Asleep at the Wheel," says Larry Wines for Folkworks.

This is the best in New Bluegrass to Appalachia Folks Roots Fusion, an evening of gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting new bluegrass inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze. Winner of the Just Plain Folks 2006 Music Awards for Best Roots Album, and Folkworks Magazine's Pick for Best Bluegrass Album of 2005 for "Blue Eyed Darlin,'" Susie's Hilonesome Band is Steve Rankin on mandolin, Rob Carlson on guitar, Fred Sanders on bass and Mark Indictor on fiddle.

Marvin O'Dell of Classicheartland.com writes: "Susie Glaze does something with a song that only great singers can do...she grabs hold of a song's deepest emotion and purpose and wraps it tightly around your soul" and Bluegrass Unlimited calls her "an important voice on the California Bluegrass scene." "Susie Glaze has one of the most beautiful voices in bluegrass and folk music today. She performs a song straight from her heart and soul." Roz Larman, KPFK's FolkScene. There's a new CD that will be released shortly before this show. Produced by Herb Pedersen, featuring Herb and Chris Hillman, it promises to be another wonderful offering by Susie and the High Lonesome Band.

About the Pasadena Folk Music Society...

Graduate students, Brian Toby and Simon Davies, formed a Caltech student organization, the Caltech Folk Music Society, in 1983. The intent was to bring well-known performers of acoustic music from around the country, and around the world, to play at Caltech for a reasonable price. Long before playing "unplugged" became fashionable, the CFMS began to seek out a wide range of singer-songwriters, bluegrass bands, British Isles music, blues, Nueva Cancion, guitarists, and a whole array of other musicians that did not fit well into mainstream musical categories. While some of these performers emphasize elements of "folk tradition," others are boldly innovative and truly unique. Social activism, humor, and compassion are commonly present as well. In 2013, the Society became a 501(c)(3) organization and the name was changed to the Pasadena Folk Music Society. Concerts continue to be held at Caltech in the Beckman Institute Auditorium. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact folkmusic@caltech.edu to find out more.
