01/26/20 - John Kruth & The Illustrious Ancestors

MATINEE! Join us at the Coffee Gallery Backstage for an evening of interstellar Country & Eastern music - fresh from the fingertips and hearts of this crew of soul searching string/mind benders.

The Illustrious Ancestors features multi-instrumentalist/modern griot John Kruth (TriBeCastan) on mandolin, banjo, flute, sitar, harmonica, guitar, bulbul tarang, voice and LA's cosmic cantor Willie Aron (The Balancing Act, Syd Straw, Thee Holy Brothers) on keys, guitar and voice with (Camper Van Beethoven’s) Victor Krummenacher on guitar, bass, voice with Joel Martin on pedal steel guitar, Dave Soyars on buh buh bass, Perry Ostrin on most inventive drums

According to Paul Zollo “What they do is undefinable, kissed by fearlessness, charm and mystery. Add to that heartfelt love for musical expression and serious artistry, along with Kruth’s comic verbal flair. The Illustrious Ancestors, all gifted players mix up great real-time gumbos. But better than trusting me, go to one of their shows - or maybe all of their shows - Be prepared to feel giddy." ~ Paul Zollo – Senior Editor - American Songwriter, Author of Conversations with Tom Petty and Songwriters on Songwriting
