The Traditionalists: Windy Hill
The Traditionalists: Windy Hill
It's immediately evident at a Windy Hill show that the band is excited about bluegrass music and has big fun picking and singing. Named after the golden hill in Portola Valley, CA that separates the SF Bay Area from the Pacific Ocean, Windy Hill is the new face of bluegrass on the West Coast. With their strong harmony singing, original songwriting and hard-driving banjo, Windy Hill is becoming increasingly well-known – and are winning awards – for their entertaining performances.

The Newgrass: Rusty Stringfield
The Newgrass: Rusty Stringfield
Born in San Francisco’s Mission District, this high energy acoustic four piece have been spilling out of their corner pub and onto some of the finest stages in town. No song is sacred once Rusty Stringfield gets fired up, on the stage, the street corner or around the campfire. Take a twisted trip from traditional bluegrass to soul, reggae, and arena rock (maybe all at once). Tight harmonies, tasty instrumentals with a heaping side of accordion. Prepare thyself for a foot stompin, two steppin good time. Yee-Ha!
Neckbeard Boys
Neckbeard Boys
The Neckbeard Boys bring a raucous and high energy take on the string band sound. With great stage presence and songwriting that combines influences ranging from Scruggs to Sublime, from the Devil Makes Three to the delta blues. Vocal harmony and versatility are the staple of their craft and they've honed it to deliver a true good time sound that goes best with a dash of whiskey.
