Phil Salazar and the Kin Folk will perform at Caltech August 12 in Beckman Institute Auditorium (Little Beckman)
Saturday, August 12 @ 8:00 pm$20
Phil Salazar has been one of the mainstays in Southern California bluegrass for a good many years. He has pulled bluegrass in many directions and he has played in many memorable configurations during this time. One of these groupings began as the Phil Salazar Band back in 1983. This is such an amazing grouping and they have now become more of a full time band. You can count on a great show. Kin Folk includes Phil on fiddle and guitar, Tom Corbett (who also plays in many other configurations) on mandolin and guitar, Bill Knopf, the longtime great banjo player, Charl Ann Gastineau, the fantastic other half of the “twin fiddles,” and Rick Borella, their longtime rock solid bass player, along with their newest member Bill Flores, yet another high-demand, busy musician, on dobro, accordion and guitar. Phil, Bill, and Tom all sing lead and backing vocals, so we’ll all have a great time together. They have released recordings over the years, including a few when they morphed into The Accousticats for a few years with Cyrus Clarke. They play in the style of bluegrass, but draw from a wealth of genres including folk, rock, traditional American, cajun, Irish, jazz, country, and cowboy. Their performances together have been infrequent, so don’t miss this show! Find out a bit more about them at pskfband.com.
