String fans of all stripes should run, not walk, to the Freight for tonight’s Shasta String Celebration! Over the past 11 years, the event has earned a reputation as an epic show, uniting a staggering array of the most influential and innovative performers from the worlds of bluegrass, jazz, Celtic, old time, and pop for an outpouring of music that takes the audience on a stunning cross-genre journey, with many special guests and spontaneous collaborations. You won’t find a lineup like this anywhere else in the world!


Hosted by brother and sister Tristan and Tashina Clarridge, both of them Grand National Fiddle Champions, the performance spotlights some of the brightest stars in acoustic music, fresh from a week of musical exploration at the Shasta String Summit. A glance at the lineup is enough to demonstrate the wildly multifarious, sublimely tuneful possibilities this evening offers: the brilliant North Indian classical violinist Kala Ramnath, renowned folk singer and multi-instrumentalist Jody Stecher, jazz violin ace Billy Contreras, traditional fiddler Paul Brown, Appalachian music masters John Hermann & Chicken Train, Santa Cruz native and Irish fiddler Adam Agee, phenomenal banjoist Ben Krakauer, Irish tenor banjo virtuoso Dave Cory, Tristan and Tashina’s band the Bee Eaters, which also features hammer dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman, and most likely a few surprise guests. For an evening of cross-genre collaborations and dazzling musical fireworks, don’t miss this string extravaganza!
