Between the Hollow & the High-Rise (Live Oak Records)
Kathy Kallick Band makes exactly the kind of country-fried bluegrass you’d never expect to find in the Bay Area. Banjo and fiddle are provided by musicians with some serious chops, vocals both male and female are pleasantly twangy, lyrics are exactly what you’d expect from a bluegrass band. The whole thing has a traditional, down-home sort of feel to it.
At Freight & Salvage (2020 Addison St., Berkeley) on April 30. 8 p.m., $18.50-$19.50
