Dirty Cello CD Release Concert
Friday, April 20, 2018
$15 advance/$20 at the door
It’s time for the latest Dirty Cello cd – this one called, “By Request.” It features our versions of songs that fans have requested. From a fiery rendition of Devil Went Down to Georgia to some hard rockin’ Led Zeppelin, this cd has something for everybody. Our cd release concert will feature all the songs from the album plus our usual mix of cello, energy, humor, rhythm and a whole lot of spontaneity.
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 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!
“Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” Lou Fancher, 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
“The group seamlessly careens from blues to bluegrass and rock in a way that really shouldn’t make sense but somehow does.” LA Times
