Sasha Waltz and Guests: Körper

Sasha Waltz, Cal Performances

In her signature work, Körper (Bodies), Berlin choreographer Sasha Waltz explores the visceral tangle of humanity from the perspectives of history, science, and architecture. Waltz premiered Körper in her first season as artistic director of the Schaubühne Theater in 2000 and now revives the work as she is poised to take on the co-directorship of the Staatsballett Berlin next year. Set on 13 male and female dancers, the movement evokes a staggering range of embodied experience through a series of living tableaux, both epic and intimate; the dancers morph and converge, meld and squirm, join and are torn apart, creating a powerful and unforgettable emotional landscape. Please note: this work includes nudity.

Off to the Hunt! Two Brandenburgs & Bach's Hunt Cantata



Off to the Hunt!

The opening concerts of the 30th All-Bach Season will feature the sonorous corno da caccia or "hunting horn" in two works that reveal Bach's playful dispositions while employed in Weimar and Cöthen. The joyful "Hunting Cantata," Was mir behagt, ist nur die muntre Jagd! ("What pleases me is the lively hunt!") is Bach's earliest surviving secular cantata, composed for the 31st birthday of Duke Christian of Saxe-Weissenfels whose wise governance and adept hunting skills are allegorically praised in song. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F Major brings the Baroque horn to the foreground in some of Bach's most robust instrumental music, and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major for three groups of string instruments matches violins, violas, and `cellos in a rally of friendly competition, a tour de force volley of virtuosity.

International Body Music MiniFest - Pass It Down


International Body Music MiniFest - Pass It Down

House Band Corposonic Trio: Keith Terry, Steve Hogan, and Bryan Dyer, Linda Tillery, Diane Ferlatte, Brenda Wong Aoki, Destiny Arts Youth Performing Company, Evie Ladin

"Mr. Terry and his colleagues in action is like visiting an ANATOMICAL CARNIVAL, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps and mouths engage in an endless MUSICAL BALLET."
- Wall Street Journal

The International Body Music Festival was founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Keith Terry, and is a project of Crosspulse, an Oakland-based non-profit arts organization dedicated to the performance, recording and education of cross-cultural rhythmic arts. The IBMF is produced in the San Francisco Bay Area every two years, and by our international partners in the interim years.

The IBMF features contemporary and traditional Body Music plus new, IBMF-commissioned collaborative projects -- presented in Concerts, Workshops, Teacher Trainings, Lecture-Demonstration, Body Music Open-Mic, Family Matinee, and in-school Assembly Programs. The IBMF also offers touring programs, and MiniFests of shorter duration.

Linda Tillery's

career began in 1967 as lead singer of the Berkeley based, psychedelic soul band, Loading Zone. Since those early days she has collaborated as vocalist and percussionist on more than eighty recordings with the likes of Santana, Huey Lewis and the News, The Whispers, Taj Mahal, Kenny and Pete and Sheila Escovedo. She was both artist and producer at Olivia Records, was a founding member of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra, and founded Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir. Linda's journey is a true representation of the Bay Area music scene - through psychedelic 60's soul, groundbreaking 70's activism, 80's R&B glitz, numerous cross cultural collaborations and since 1990, her exploration into the roots of the African American music experience. Now, in 2018, she is at the height of her musical powers, continuing her adventures in sound, and exploring what it means to be a local legend.


"Diane Ferlatte's

charismatic personality sets the stage on fire. Her storytelling is so powerful that the stories she tells become a part of you. "

Now an internationally renowned storyteller, Diane has traveled the globe, from Europe to Singapore & Malaysia, from Australia & New Zealand to Colombia, Senegal, Kenya, South Africa, Turkey, Jamaica, India and of course all over the United States. She believes that telling and listening to each other's stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better. She views storytelling as a traditional art form that can promote literacy, imagination, and values in the young. While emphasizing African American stories, she loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity, including personal and historical stories. Having a background in music as well as American Sign Language, Diane frequently incorporates both into her performances. Erik Pearson, her musical sidekick, often accompanies Diane on banjo & guitar.

Diane has received numerous honors including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence Award, the National Association of Black Storytellers' Zora Neale Hurston Award, The Friends of Negro Spirituals Heritage Keepers Award, as well as the California Arts Council's highest ranking. In addition to receiving a 2008 Grammy nomination, all of her recordings have received other awards including multiple Parents' Choice, American Library Association, National Parenting Publications, iParenting Media, Children's Music Web, and Storytelling World Awards. Among her most exciting performances are her numerous appearances at both the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and the Internationales Storytelling Festival in Graz, Austria, as well as the First International Festival to Commemorate the End of Slavery, on Goree Island, Senegal, and performing for President Clinton at his first inauguration.

Brenda Wong Aoki

is a storyteller, anthologized playwright, producer, artistic director, and performer. Her song/dance/dramas are drawn from her family's 121-year history in San Francisco and the Bay Area, Kabuki legends, ghost stories, and her personal experience. Known for her agility across disciplines, she creates monodramas rooted in traditional storytelling, dance movement, and music. Her sensei is Living Treasure, Nomura Mansaku, a Kyogen master; she also studied Noh with Nomura Shiro, who is a Cultural Intangible Property. It is extremely rare for a woman (and especially an American woman) to get to study with masters like these; ironically, it is because she is an American that she was able to work with artists of this caliber. Her other teachers/coaches/mentors include stage director, choreographer, performer, and former director of Theatre of Yugen, Yuriko Doi, and longtime director and coach, Jael Weisman of Dell'Arte Players and the San Francisco Mime Troupe.


Destiny Arts Youth Performing Company

Since 1988, Destiny has been a unique community gathering place for families and youth interested in building peaceful communities through the love of dance, theater, and martial arts.

Destiny Arts Center stands out in that we offer hip hop, and martial arts classes for kids as young as 3 years old, and challenge youth to develop their dance and martial arts technique through their teens, up to age 18.


Evie Ladin

Banjo player, singer, songwriter, percussive-dancer, choreographer and square-dance caller, Evie Ladin grew up steeped in traditional folk music/dance, and brings a contemporary vision to her compositions and choreography. Evie's performances, recordings and teaching reconnect Appalachian music/dance with other African-Diaspora traditions, and have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Lincoln Center, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to Celtic Connections. She has taken home ribbons in folk song from Mt Airy, NC Fiddler's Convention, and Neo-Trad Band from the Appalachian Stringband Festival, Clifftop, WV. Based in Oakland, CA, Evie tours with Keith Terry and the Evie Ladin Band; and has produced 6 CDs and two instructional DVDs. In the percussive dance world, she is Executive Director of the International Body Music Festival, directs the moving choir MoToR/dance and is an ace freestyle flatfooter. In the trad world, Evie teaches banjo and harmony singing at the infamous Freight & Salvage, online at Peghead Nation and numerous camps. In the songwriter world, she just writes great songs. A highly entertaining performer, Evie enjoys facilitating arts learning in diverse communities.

Oct 20, 8pm to 10pm, Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, 2020 Addison Street, Berkeley

City Folk

City Folk is Keith Greeninger, Kimball Hurd and Roger Feuer. The group is renowned for their award-winning songwriting, tight vocal harmonies and expansive musical arrangements.

They began playing together in the late 1980's and quickly rose to the top of the Bay Area music scene, enjoying immense popularity on the National Folk and Americana circuits and performing at major festivals, concert halls, and legendary acoustic venues throughout the Country. They were winners of KFOG's prestigious Best of the Bay music award.

The trio's current tour celebrates the release of a brand new live DVD that captures a sold out concert the band performed in November of last year at the Nevada City Theater.

City Folk's performances are rare these days since each of the artist has gone on to pursue other musical directions. When they do come together there is the added essence of long-time musical collaborators with a history, a respect and a sound that only happens when they share their combined talents and enjoyment of making music together.

Create an effortless flow of music and harmonies the group has often drawn comparisons to such legends as CSN and The Eagles, and though such comparisons are easily understandable, the listener is immediately aware that this group has created a sound and a message completely their own and unlike any other.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Advance tickets are available at the link below, or you may purchase your tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby).

Tempest 30th Anniversary Show

Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a globally-renowned hybrid of high-energy Folk Rock fusing Irish reels, Scottish ballads, Norwegian influences and other world music elements. The last 26 years have seen the San Francisco Bay Area based act release fifteen critically acclaimed CDs and play more than 2,000 gigs. It's also enjoyed an evolving line-up that's enabled musicianship and creativity to rise with each new member.

Hailing from Oslo, Norway, founding member and lead singer/electric mandolinist, Lief Sorbye, is recognized as a driving force in the modern folk-rock movement. He started Tempest after years of touring and recording on the folk circuit. San Francisco fiddler Kathy Buys brings her international award winning playing to the Tempest stage. Her experience performing world-fusion music with high energy dance bands combined with many years of playing Irish traditional music in America and Ireland makes her a perfect fit for Tempest. The newest member is Josh Fossgreen, an exceptional young talent whose innovative bass textures add a rich dimension to the Tempest soundscape. Born in Colorado and brought up in small town Missouri, Gregory Jones is the latest in a long line of Tempest guitar greats! His fiery licks and hard-rocking approach to the instrument, combined with his experience and understanding of Celtic music is a fast favorite with fans, new and old alike! Cuban-born drummer Adolfo Lazo, an original Tempest member, colors the band's sound with inventive rhythms, and rock-steady drumming.

Signed to Sony-distributed Magna Carta Records, Tempest's releases are acclaimed worldwide. The group's latest studio CD, The Tracks We Leave, may be the bands most exciting work to date, as their unique blend of world music elements showcases inventive new original and traditional material.

Tempest is regularly featured at prestigious festivals including The Philadelphia Folk Festival, Denmark's Skagen Festival, Britain's Cropredy Festival and The Winnipeg Folk Festival in Canada. The band is also a mainstay at countless American Celtic festivals.

The Kenneth Brian Band w/ special guest: STEVE FERRONE of The Heartbreakers!
Since his first album release in 2002, Kenneth Brian's modern Southern Rock and Americana infused style, timeless song-craft, layered with gritty vocals and guitar prowess have helped earn him a loyal fan following and the respect of fellow musicians. Kenneth's musical styling and dynamic live performances also attracted the attention of some of his mentors like Lucinda Williams, Billy Gibbons and current bandmate Steve Ferrone of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Since 2013, he spent two years touring with multi-Grammy winner Lucinda Williams, who describes the sound of the live band as "somewhere between Lynyrd Skynyrd and Drive-By Truckers". He has also opened for ZZ Top, Steve Winwood, and Blackberry Smoke. Whether in intimate Honky Tonks or stately, sold-out theaters, Kenneth and the live band continue to captivate audiences with powerful, resonating guitar tones and a tight rhythm section.

Kenneth's sixth studio album `With Lions,' released May 19th 2017, includes 11 songs all written by Kenneth and pays tribute to his mentors as well as his musically rich and culturally significant Southern heritage. The single "You're Not Mine" is an edgy anthem with heavy-hitting guitar solos and powerful vocals. "Beautiful Storm" is an emotionally evocative track that showcases Kenneth's spell-binding competency with a slide.

Rock `n' roll royalty Steve Ferrone (Drums, Tambourine, Shakers) and Scott Thurston (Keyboards, Piano) of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers don't just lend their talents for the album but, Ferrone sits behind the drum kit when he's not touring with Tom Petty. Kenneth and Steve met a couple of years ago at a gathering thrown by a mutual pal. Not long after, he needed a drummer for a Hollywood gig and Steve sat in with the band. He has worked with Kenneth to hone the sound and helped him the right players. And as they say, the rest is history. Handpicked by Steve, drummer Chris Cano plays with the KBB when Ferrone is on the road with the Heartbreakers. Popular session bass guitarist and Disresputable Few member, Paul Ill, joined the band at Steve's urging and perfectly rounded out the Kenneth Brian Band sound. "Those two were the perfect combination for what I do," said Kenneth. "Their influence has helped elevate my playing and just being around Steve is a master class on how to be a successful artist and a decent human being," he continued. In true KBB form, the sound of the new album honors a distinctive blend of Southern Rock that is both progressive and rooted in tradition.

While Kenneth currently resides in Los Angeles, he originally hails from the South. Born in Virginia, he spent some of his formative years in Alabama before his family settled in the musically rich town of Gainesville, Florida. From a very young age, he realized his passion for creating music and has pursued it with vigor. He penned his first country song on an old guitar at the ripe age of 4 and became serious about the guitar at age 11.

After moving to Nashville in 2001, Kenneth hit the road with a new sound steeped in tradition.

`With Lions,' out May 19, 2017 on Robo Records, was recorded at Dave's Room Studio in Hollywood, California. David Bianco (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty) produced, mixed and engineered the album. It was mastered at legendary Capitol Studios in Hollywood, California by mastering engineer Kevin Bartley.

The Steel Wheels


The Steel Wheels
"Few groups have come as far in such a short period of time as The Steel Wheels..." - NPR's Mountain Stage

Hailing from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The Steel Wheels are familiar with the traditions of folk music and how a string band is supposed to sound. In fact, they've been drawing on those steadfast traditions for more than a decade. Yet their name also evokes a sense of forward motion, which is clearly reflected in their latest album, Wild As We Came Here.

"I think we've always been able to write new songs with different landscapes. However it was really enjoyable for us, creatively and artistically, to depart from the straight-up acoustic sound that we've been known for," says Trent Wagler, who plays guitar and banjo in the band and writes most of the material. "I'm excited to see what happens. There are fans out there who are ready for this and who have been waiting for us to do this."

Bill Staines

Anyone not familiar with the music of Bill Staines is in for a special treat.

For more than forty years, Bill has traveled back and forth across North America, singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs, and coffeehouses. A New England native, Bill became involved with the Boston/Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960's and for a time, emceed the Sunday Hootenanny at the legendary Club 47 in Cambridge. Bill quickly became a popular performer in the Boston area.

From the time in 1971 when a reviewer from the Boston Phoenix stated that he was "simply Boston's best performer," Bill has continually appeared on folk music radio listener polls as one of the top all time favorite folk artists. Now, well into his fifth decade as a folk performer, he has gained an international reputation as a gifted songwriter and performer.

Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually. He weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances and one reviewer wrote, "He has a sense of timing to match the best standup comic."

Bill's music is a slice of Americana, reflecting with the same ease his feelings about the prairie people of the Midwest or the adventurers of the Yukon, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land.

Many of Bill's songs have appeared in grade school music books, church hymnals, and scouting campfire songbooks; he is one of only a few songwriters to have eight songs published in the classic song collection, Rise up Singing. Composer David Amram recently described Bill as "a modern day Stephen Foster...his songs will be around 100 years from now."

Over the decades, you have heard Bill singing on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, HBO's award-winning series Deadwood, and Public Radio's Mountain Stage. Additionally, his music has been used in a number of films including Off and Running with Cyndi Lauper, and The Return of the Secaucus Seven, John Sayles' debut as a writer-director.

In 1975, Bill won National Yodeling Championship in Kerrville, Texas. Another important recognition was given to him in 2007. Presented by the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association, The Jerry Christen Award recognized Bill's contribution to New England folk music.

Bill has recorded 26 albums; The Happy Wanderer and One More River were winners of the prestigious Parents' Choice Award, taking a gold medal and silver medal respectively. His songs have been recorded by many artists including Peter, Paul & Mary, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, The Highwaymen, Mason Williams, Grandpa Jones, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough and others.

As well as recordings, over 100 of Bill's songs have been published in three songbooks: If I Were a Word, Then I'd Be a Song, Movin' It Down the Line, and Music to Me, the latter published by Hal Leonard Corporation. His song, "All God's Critters," has been recently released as a Simon and Schuster children's book with illustrations by Caldecott honor-winning artist, Kadir Nelson.

"Folk music is rich in the human spirit and experience. I've always wanted to bring something of value to people through my songs." With these thoughts, Bill continues to drive the highways and back roads of the country year after year, bringing his music to listeners, young and old.
