The Crooked Jades reunion A one-time only cinematic retrospective performance invites former Crooked Jades members back into the lineup for the latest of their rare, always mysterious, moving and unpredictable shows.
Joining founders Jeff Kazor and Lisa Berman and long-time member Erik Pearson (composer of the Crooked Jades tune featured by Sean Penn in his 2007 film Into The Wild) will be important former members of what some now call the Crooked Jades Collective. Playing bass will be Megan Adie who is back in San Francisco after a decade of living and playing 17th and 18th century double bass in Europe. A key member of the Crooked Jades evolution, touring and recording with the Jades for several years, her iconic (arco) bass can be heard on the band’s acclaimed album Worlds on Fire. Playing mandolin will be Bill Foss, an integral player on the band’s award-winning PBS documentary soundtrack Seven Sisters: a Kentucky Portrait. Also featured will be Tom Lucas, long time Jade contributor who championed the minstrel banjo into the Jade lexicon. Plus more special guests TBA.
