Dirty Cello

October 22, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., 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 a 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!

We will have an intermission with refreshments available. Plenty of free parking onsite. Masks required, thank you. (Performers are all vaccinated)

           “Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and                     only occasionally classical.” 

                     -Oakland Magazine

           “The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But                       what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people                     would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.” 

                     – Good Times Santa Cruz

           “A four-piece string ensemble that truly pushes the envelope and breaks the barriers, they blend blues, bluegrass        and world              music sounds with roots in the world of European classical music in a style that is unique and refreshing.”  

                   – Cloverdale Reveille
