Cyprian's | 2087 Turk St., San Francisco, CA
SF Live Arts (formerly the Noe Valley Music Series) are out to revive America’s first pop music with a mini Hardly Strictly Bluegrass-type show.
With three bands covering everything from blues, to gypsy to ragtime, they plan to take full advantage of the great sound at their new venue, Cyprian’s.
Yes, it’s a church and yes, there will be beer to purchase inside. Hoots and hollers encouraged!
>> Insider Deal: Tickets are $18, but Mention FuncheapSF at the door and get in for just $12.
Dustbowl Revival is high impact, 10-piece, happy collision of bluegrass, ragtime and New Orleans gypsy folk jive, playing outstanding originals and uniquely arranged classics with vintage finesse and contemporary gusto.
Pete Devine’s Jug Band
Don’t let these youngsters fool you. They’ve been playing real-deal, nitty gritty, pre-war jazz, blues, ragtime, and jug band music together and in various combinations for well over a decade.
Ragtime is America ’s first original popular music. Cakewalks, rags, “Indian intermezzos”, and Latin dances were all arranged for string instruments. The Ragtime Skedaddlers revive the joyous sounds of a ragtime string band consisting of two mandolins and guitar.
