Susie Glaze and Hilonesome
Susie Glaze and The Hilonesome Band are coming back for a second appearance at Caltech. They are currently working on a new recording, so they have plenty of new songs and many great ones from before. Folkworks Magazine voted them #3 in "Folkworks' Top Ten Live Acoustic Bands in Southern California for 2008," writing "Susie is justifiably endorsed by Appalachian music legend Jean Ritchie, and the band has a fine repertoire of beyond-bluegrass originals from its chief songwriter, Rob Carlson. They can take you up in the hollars, or sound like a female-fronted Asleep at the Wheel." (Larry Wines for Folkworks)
This is the best in New Bluegrass to Appalachia Folks Roots Fusion, an evening of gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting new bluegrass inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susia Glaze. Winner of the Just Plain Folks 2006 Music Awards for Best Roots Album, and Folkworks Magazine's Pick for Best Bluegrass Album of 2005 for Blue Eyed Darlin', Susie's Hilonesome Band is Steve Rankin on mandolin, Rob Carlson on guitar, Fred Sanders on bass and Mark Indictor on fiddle, and they showcase the songwriting of lead guitarist Rob Carlson.
Along with plenty of new material, this show will feature work from their critically-acclaimed Green Kentucky Blues CD produced by Laurie Lewis, award-winning Blue Eyed Darlin' and classics from their 2002 album Home on the Hill, along with mountain standards from the Jean Ritchie collection, and favorites from Gillian Welch and Lucinda Williams.
