Kathy Kallick Band Releases Between the Hollow & The High-Rise

Between the Hollow & The High-Rise is the new CD release by the Kathy Kallick Band, a San Francisco Bay Area group whose music encompasses "hot bluegrass and cool originals."

The CD's title is a line from Kathy Kallick's song, "Where Is My Little Cabin Home." Kathy comments, "Many people have come to bluegrass in a round-about way, without growing up with it. The ideals and sentiments of the music -- the keening, modal tones and intervals, the conversation between strings and voices, the plainly-told stories -- have drawn in a variety of people from many cultures and backgrounds. Those of us in this band are not from shiny glass downtown towers or the piney woods, but from somewhere in between."

In Appalachia a hollow is called a "hollar." In the deepest hollows, the sun doesn't touch the bottom until midmorning, and by late afternoon a smoky shadow covers the area as it starts to get dark. Folks from the hollow have true mountain character built from living in this isolation. In the modern world, "high-rise" evokes concrete jungles whose darkness is the result of tall buildings built close together. The development of folks from the "high-rise" is affected by over-crowding, cacophony, and fast-paced lives.

Between the Hollow & the High-Rise is rooted in traditional bluegrass while encompassing contemporary concerns. The CD gives the listener a place to alternately relax and foot stomp, be uplifted, challenged, amused, and transported by songs that blend sweet harmonies, thoughtful lyrics, and kick-ass instrumentals.

"A profound songwriter and expressive singer, Kathy Kallick is a mountain gal at heart. Her singing has always been earthy and passionate. As a songwriter, she knows how to pen beautiful impressionistic pieces with memorable contemporary messages."
