KRONOS QUARTET
San Franciso 2019 [no label, 1CD]

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Music For Change: Pete Seeger @ 100. Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA; October 4, 2019. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

For 45 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet – David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello) – has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. Pete Seeger, who would have turned 100 years old this May, lived through the tumultuous 20th century as a force for kindness, humility, and good. His pursuits reflected the complexity of the times through the lens of music. Kronos Quartet will create a multi-artist exploration of Seeger’s musical legacy. The group will collaborate with composers, guest vocalists and fellow musicians, to re-imagine the songs that Seeger popularized and celebrate his place in the landscape of American music.

  3. What a wonderful treat. I have followed Kronos since they covered “Purple Haze” on their first recording… and Pete was an influence in my life for decades. Thank you.

  4. This ain’t shit . Been awhile since a good classic rock post . Everybody wants classic rock or should . This is Dic suckin queer music . Give us what we all want and that’s fuckin classic rock . Get with the mother fuckin program.

    By Derrick on Dec 16, 2019

  5. I bet you’d know all about “dic” sucking, wouldn’t you, Derrick?

    By Cynical Idealist on Dec 16, 2019

  6. Not me asshole . You is the motherfuckin Dic sucker . You suck big elephant dics . Also you is probably a fuckin Jew bastard.

    By Derrick on Dec 16, 2019

  8. Sorry to interrupt Kronos but just found out Roy Loney passed away on Friday.

    – “Roy was born on a Friday the 13th and he died on a Friday the 13th,” said Altman. “That is a very rockin’ thing to do.”
    Roy Loney, dynamic frontman for SF’s Flamin’ Groovies, dies at 73

  9. This place would be so much better without these stupid comments. What purpose do they serve?

    By Dennis on Dec 16, 2019

  10. sking, that’s too bad about Roy Loney. Never got to see them live, but I loved their music. And what a great name for a band, the Flamin’ Groovies! They brought back the older classic rock sound, and it was legit.

    By Scar Rad on Dec 16, 2019

  11. sking, this was just posted on YouTube on Dec 15th It is a tribute to Roy Loney with tons of photos.

  12. To Dennis - If it weren’t for this post, no one would know how ignorant, and sad at the same time, that Derrick is. There are gorillas who have a larger vocabulary than Derrick has. I’m sure he (she? It?) will post some of his infantile rants now. C’mon Derrick!! At least come up with something new/original to try to show you’re not as classless, and stupid as you appear to be.

    By Russ on Dec 16, 2019

  13. Hey Russ go suck on Dennis ‘ dic. Then Mark will suck you, Your all coc suckets and bastards

    We all want Led Zep and more Stones.

    By Derrick on Dec 17, 2019

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

  16. my bad the song is called Jenny Take a Ride - Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels

  17. Early in his recording career in 1937, Bukka White was arrested and convicted for a shooting incident and was sentenced to Parchman Farm prison in rural Sunflower County, Mississippi. The institution was operated as a hard-time prison labor work farm, which was notorious for its harsh conditions and use of the trusty system.[1] His recording of “Shake ‘Em On Down” became a hit while he was there and as a result, White became somewhat of a celebrity at the prison

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

  18. remember led zep doin their version of shake em on down with jimmy on slide guitar and plant sounding like a black dude. classic blues

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 17, 2019

    By Derrick on Dec 17, 2019

  21. i hear you man. thats why im layin low. check out cactus new album black dawn. the first 2 songs were recorded in 72 with the original members and we never heard them until now. the rest of the album is pretty good

    By Smashmouth on Dec 17, 2019

  22. Thanks for the link Scar Rad. I discovered Flamin Groovies by accident. Around 1977 at a hole in the wall record store in or around Pasadena, the bargain bin contained the albums Teenage Head & Flamingo for 13 cents a piece. For that price & a name like Flamin Groovies I had to take a chance. I enjoyed those albums. reminded me of early Stones. Years later through a misprint in a music catalog I thought I was buying a Groovies CD but that’s how I discovered The Flaming Lips - Clouds Taste Metallic.

    By sking on Dec 17, 2019

  23. fake Smashmouth = antichrist. They both made the same comment.

    By Beelzabozo on Dec 17, 2019

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  31. My cowboys is in trouble against the eagles this Sunday if Dak wants to air it out . If they want to win they need to establish the running game and feed the Zeke.

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  32. Sic of Jerry Jones and his bullshit though . His fuckin ugly mug is everywhere. Did you see him in the locker room standing with his two retarded sons when Garret addresed the team . Fuckin egomaniac

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  33. Almost hope they lose just to see that stupid grin wiped off of Jerrahs ugly face

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  34. Ain’t never forgave him for fireing coach Landry

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  35. He then fired Jimmy Johnson after winning two Super Bowls in a row . What stupid idiot does that ?

    By Derrick on Dec 18, 2019

  36. you think the clapper is done. landry was the best. i heard that maybe harbaugh is being considered

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Dec 18, 2019

  37. Garrett the clapper is probably done if they lose to Philly this week or don’t go far in the playoffs

    By Derrick on Dec 19, 2019

  38. Fuckin Jerrah will just find another puppet to take his place . No real coach will put up with his bullshit and interference

    By Derrick on Dec 19, 2019

  39. Prescott has injuries to his shoulder and throwing hand ‘ maybe a blessing in disguise. Don’t want Dak throwing that much . Need to feed the Zeke ( Elliott)

    By Derrick on Dec 19, 2019

  40. Thank you for the Kronos! Once again, Big O–even with the same droning fuckwits–is the best of the Web.
