Joe Craven & the Sometimers

Brought to you by a Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and KZFR Community Radio

Joe Craven first captured the wide-eyed stare of many fans in the ’90s as the astonishing percussionist and multi-instrumentalist with the David Grismann Quintet. He approaches his music with an insider’s knowledge and adoration - he performed and recorded with Garcia & Grisman for four years. As an educator, artist and actor, his oeuvre covers a huge range of musical genres and artistic inspirations.

On his jaunty and inventive new album, Garcia Songbook, Craven blazes a new path across the well-worn trails of the beloved and revered Garcia songbook. Bursting forth with exciting and unexpected takes on familiar favorites, the music is seasoned with surprising flavors, deviations, re-imaginings and detours. Craven sings and plays mandolin, fiddle and percussion alongside his band The Sometimers, featuring his daughter Hattie Craven on harmony vocals, plus Bruce MacMillan (guitar, dobro & vocals), Jonathan Stoyanoff (bass & vocals) and Barry Eldridge (drums & percussion).

A portion of tonight’s proceeds will be donated to KZFR. Thank you for your support of community radio!
