From The Center: Kyle Ledson

Kyle Ledson Since age 3, Kyle Ledson has embraced acoustic music as his very best friend. He first picked up a fiddle from the free fiddle music lessons offered to the kids at the Strawberry Music Festival. Every morning we’d wait in line to sign up for a slot with an instructor. The Kid’s on Bluegrass program at the Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival held by the California Bluegrass Association (CBA) was Kyle’s next exposure to kids playing instruments. This really inspired Kyle as he saw these teenagers really doing something with their music. Kyle participated in the Kid’s on Bluegrass program yearly hosted by Frank Sullivan and Kyle wrote a bluegrass song for the kids to play together called “Bluegrass Heart.” Mostly self taught, Kyle has learned the secret backroads of the fretboard and sharpened his flat picking skills to make the mandolin (and now guitar) sing.

From The Center: Dirty Cello

Dirty Cello Dirty Cello…cello like you’ve never heard before. From China to Italy, Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping! ​ “When lead guitar is replaced by the sound of hot licks on a cello, blues, rock and bluegrass rise to a new dimension. Dirty Cello — a four-piece band from San Francisco — makes its style of string music to inspire audiences to swing, sway and dance.” Nick Diamantides, Ashland Daily Tidings. “Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine. “TheRead More
