Snarky Puppy (Episode #603H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Sep 17, 2017 -- 11:00 PM

Bassist and composer Michael League's improvisational pop musician collective defies categorization but never disappoints an audience, as eight of its members bring an evening of music exploration and massive jams to Infinity Hall Live. From fan favorites like "Shofukan" to "Grown Folks" from their latest Grammy-winning album Culcha Vulcha, the performance provides viewers with an immersive experience enhanced by handheld cameras on the stage capturing the woo hoo-worthy solos of this self-described "pop band without vocals."

Rhiannon Giddens (Episode #501H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Sep 3, 2017 -- 11:00 PM

Rhiannon Giddens' triumphant performance is fiercely loyal to her roots. During this passionately intelligent performance her bare-footed elegance and fearless banjo and fiddle playing are surpassed only by her vocal prowess. For the IHL audience Giddens offer the fervor of a spiritual on "Waterboy", the yips of a field holler on "Duncan and Jimmy" and a Gaelic-style hootenanny on "Mouth Music". Folk duo Birds of Chicago add to the harmony on "Lost on the River" from The New Basement Tapes project. Interview with Giddens.

Blind Pilot (Episode #605H)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 2, 2017 -- 10:00 PM

A staple of TV soundtracks, the six-piece indie band Blind Pilot, showcases their hyper individualistic approach and musicianship in an intimate concert with songs including "Half Moon," "Three Rounds and a Sound," and "Oviedo." The Portland, Oregonians' refreshingly modern take, with front man Israel Nebeker, debuted with a bicycle tour in support of their first album. Blind Pilot brings upright bass, banjo, dulcimer, vibraphone, and trumpet together with traditional drums and keyboards for a unique contemporary sound.
