The acclaimed Old-time String band The Crooked Jades returns to the concert stage for the first time since 2019, coming to the Live on the Waterfront series, presented by Point San Pablo Harbor in Richmond. The members of The Crooked Jades have been locked down with the rest of us, and as society is opening back up, they are excited to reconnect with audiences starting with this first show in a beautiful setting on the San Francisco Bay.
The Crooked Jades continue their mission to re-imagine old-time music for a modern age, while pushing boundaries and blurring categories with their fiery, soulful performances. Innovative, unpredictable and passionate, they bring their driving dance tunes and haunting ballads to rock clubs, festivals, traditional folk venues and concert halls across America and Europe.
The unique and modern sound of The Crooked Jades is created by exploring the roots of Americana and interweaving the diverse musical influences of Europe and Africa. Released to rave reviews, their 2019 recording “Empathy Moves The Water” was their first original album in over 10 years. “Few could make an album as striking as this…the highlights are the originals.” - Sylvie Simmons, Mojo Magazine, March 2019
For this performance Crooked Jades founders Jeff Kazor (vocals/guitar/ukulele) and Lisa Berman (vocals/slide guitar/banjo/harmonium) play with long-time member Erik Pearson (vocals/banjos/ukulele/harmonium/slide guitar), with special guests Brad Maestas (bass), Elise Engelberg (fiddle) and Matt Knoth (banjo/guitar.)
