Feb. 4 — Tribute! Celebrating Kate Wolf’s 75th Birthday
The late great California folksinger Kate Wolf would have been 75 in 2017. Although she’s been gone for more than 30 years, her songs endure, sung around campfires, at weddings, at folk festivals, and celebrated tonight by an all-star cast of performers. To learn more about Kate Wolf, go to www.katewolf.com
Our cast includes John Roy Zat, who recorded with Kate on her 1977 album, “Lines on the Paper”. He added lyrics to the traditional fiddle tune “Midnight on the Water”, which Kate sang and he played fiddle. More about John Roy Zat at http://www.royzat.com/
Hannah Jern-Miller first played our showcase five years ago in a Sonoma County trio called Three-Legged Sister. In 2015, she played a Kate Wolf tribute as a member of The Bootleg Honeys, and nine songs from that live show were released as an album. She plays many solo gigs, and also in a band called Foxes in the Henhouse. http://hannahjernmiller.com/
