He's performed at festivals and legendary venues, appeared on countless national radio shows, and shared stages with dozens of the country's best-known artists.

Weather leading his band or alone with just a guitar, Keith can completely captivate an audience.  From the deep laid back grooves of a soulful ballad to the righteous intensity of a hard-driving anthem his rich vocal range conveys strength tempered with vulnerability, political struggle reflected in personal experience, and a deep connection to the land, community, and family.   His latest Cd Soul Connection featured members of the Bonnie Raitt Band and Little Feat and has received strong radio play nationally.

Achilles Wheel: Achilles Wheel is a stunning high energy Roots and World music/Rock and Roll band from Northern California, featuring award winning songwriting played on numerous stringed instruments and the rhythmic earthquake of two full drum sets.

Dead Meadow plus Matt Hollywood & The Bad Feelings


Dead Meadow's is a unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitar-fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon 

Tue. March 28 at 8pm
$15 adv./$15 door ALL STANDING– ages 21 +

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents

Dead Meadow's unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitar-fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon have won over psychedelic pop/rock and stoner rock fans alike. Although the band's members met while attending all-ages shows in and around Washington, D.C.'s punk/indie scene, the trio draws more of its sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath.   

Matt Hollywood & The Bad Feelings: Beginning in 1991 with infamous psych-rock provocateurs The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Matt Hollywood has trodden many musical paths over the last two and a half decades. From deceptively accessible BJM standouts to the tripped-out folk pop of The Out Crowd, Hollywood's songwriting has wandered through multiple genres, the playful experimentation always grounded in a core of earnest emotion.

"Mandolin Orange has been quietly gathering local and faraway fans since its debut album was released back in 2010. The North Carolina duo's music -- laced with bluegrass, country and folk -- is often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South."  -WNYC Soundcheck.  The road has been good to Mandolin Orange since the 2013 release of 'This Side of Jordan.' NPR called the album "effortless and beautiful," naming it one of the year's best folk/Americana releases, while Magnet dubbed it "magnificent," and American Songwriter said it was "honest music, shot through with coed harmonies, sweeping fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and the sort of unfakeable intimacy that bonds simpatico musicians like Gillian Welch and David Rawlings." The record earned them performances everywhere from the iconic Newport Folk Festival to Pickathon, as well as tours with Willie Watson, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Wood Brothers, and more.

Sharing his mantra of “Enjoy The Ride,” McClain has won friendship and collaboration with some of the most talented musicians in the world.

Pegi Young & The Survivors


Featuring Spooner Oldham, Kelvin Holly, Phil Jones & Shonna Tucker celebrating Pegi's new CD “Raw”

Mon. April 10 at 8pm
$15 adv./$15 door Dance– ages 21 + 

(((folkYEAH!))) Presents

Pegi Young's powerful new album, Raw , gets right to the point. Opening cut “Why” kicks off with Young's impassioned alto, demanding, “Why'd you have to ruin my life? Why'd you have to be so mean?”  Over the soulful Americana rock of her band the Survivors – led by legendary keyboardist/songwriter Spooner Oldham – Young taps into a surprisingly primal force. There's a reason for that. Young wrote most of Raw in the wake of her 2014 separation and divorce from Neil Young, to whom she'd been married thirty-six years. Over the decades, the pair had raised a family, made music together, and worked to support northern California's Bridge School for severely disabled children. Pegi founded the Bridge School in 1986 after being unable to find the right kind of care for their son, Ben, who has cerebral palsy. “[Raw] was very cathartic for me,” Young says. “What happened was real, but I also look at this record as having a universal quality to it. I'm certainly not the only one to go through a late-in-life divorce, and I'm not going to be the last. But in my case, it was so painful because we'd shared so many years building a life, together, weathering its ups and downs.”  Yet the songs – most co-written with guitarist Kelvin Holly and Oldham – aren't all expressions of anger. The first track to be released from the album is “Too Little Too Late,” a raw and poetic psalm of regret, the truth-tellin' “Gave My Best to You” and a rockin' update on “These Boots are Made for Walkin'” convey resilience and sass. A gorgeous, stripped-down version of Don Henley's “The Heart of the Matter” explores the grace of forgiveness. As a whole, the album is a journey from shock, to rage, to sadness, to strength, but not necessarily in that order.

$12 adv./$15 door Dance – ages 21 +

The Grateful Dead in their first decade, first and foremost a a dance band. One of their solutions to filling up the time in 2 to 4 hour-long shows in those early days was to open songs up and go to new places with exploratory improvisations. In these early years the jamming always supported dancing.  Songs like: Dark Star, The Other One, Playin' in the Band, Midnight Hour, and Good Lovin' were the typical launching pads for long jams. Slingshot on Mars will revisit those and other earlier tunes and open the open up with telepathic group improvisations, while staying in danceable grooves. A one-time only creative event that will be ultra-fun for all.  This show also celebrates the release of Bralove & Kaiser's new 2-CD set: POSITIVELY SPACE MUSIC.

Maria Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis,” which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere; but despite her considerable pop music success, her 52-year career could best be described a long and adventurous odyssey through the various forms of American Roots Music. During the folk revival of the early '60s, she began exploring and singing early Blues, Bluegrass and Appalachian “Old Timey” Music, beginning her recording career in 1963 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band, touring and recording with them throughout the '60s. In the 42 years since “Midnight at the Oasis,” Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 40 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots Music, including Jazz and Big Band, Blues, Gospel, R&B, (not to mention several award-winning children's albums). Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recorded and produced on-average an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammy and other awards.
