The Bee EatersTonight's San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival show spotlights the gloriously engaging, strikingly fresh music of the Bee Eaters.

Boasting a brand new CD, Oddfellows Road, and three of the most accomplished, creative young talents of the latter-day new acoustic music scene, the Bee Eaters’ mix of bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, jazz, and pop melds into an elegant fusion of tradition and innovation. The trio that fiddle legend Darol Anger calls "the instrumental cream of the brand new string nation" features hammered dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman plus the inimitable brother-sister cello and fiddle duo of Tristan and Tashina Clarridge. Tristan is a five-time Grand National Fiddle Champion and an ace cellist who tours with Crooked Still and Darol Anger's Republic of Strings. He has performed with Mike Marshall, Bruce Molsky, and Natalie MacMaster. Tashina, the 2005 Grand National Fiddle Champion, toured with Mark O'Connor and Tony Trischka. Hammered dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman has performance credits with Darol Anger and Mike Marshall. They're all amazing!

San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time FestivalSeattle-based old-time duo Cahalen & Eli, lauded by Tim O’Brien as “making music that the world needs,” open tonight’s show.
