MIDDLEBURY, IN - Kathy Kallick is a Grammy Award winner and the recipient of two IBMA awards for her part on True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe. She has been leading bands since 1975 and continues to evolve as one of the music's extraordinary composers and vocalists. Kathy and her band will perform at Essenhaus Heritage Hall in Middlebury, Indiana, to provide an evening of live bluegrass entertainment.
There is often a tendency to think of West Coast bluegrass as being softer, jazzier and somehow different than traditional. This can be the case, but there is also a school of bluegrass in northern California which has, from the beginning, been steeped in Monroe-based tradition as well as welcoming to women and original songs. Joe Ross of Bluegrass Now stated, "As a songwriter, she knows how to pen beautiful impressionistic pieces with memorable contemporary messages."
Friday, April 12th, Kathy Kallick and her band will be featured in concert at Essenhaus Heritage Hall located directly across Wayne Street from the main Essenhaus campus beginning at 7:00pm. Tickets for this concert are available on-site at the Inn and menu dining registration desk during regular business hours, via telephone or via the Internet website www.Essenhaus.com. General admission tickets purchased in advance are $15.00 per person and the admission price includes roughly two hours of live entertainment.
