24 Holidays on 24th Street
Come out for the 8th annual 24 Holidays on 24th Street in Noe Valley, San Francisco. On Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the West Parklet enjoy the stylings of Skillet Licorice — the latest project from San Francisco Bay Area roots-music luminaries Elise Engelberg and Matt Knoth. The duo’s talents are showcased beautifully on their new self-titled CD which draws on their diverse experiences playing in numerous string bands over the years in a dizzying array of folk genres. Whether they’re playing hot fiddle breakdowns, slinky blues, sparkling banjo breaks, ragtime or dreamy waltzes the duo displays an impressive command of styles and techniques that comes from deep study and loving dedication to America’s folk traditions. With the help of their talented friends they’ve put together an incredible repertoire that is essentially traditional, yet with a modern approach that is anything but a clinical archival music. Then, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., strolling carolers from the SF City Chorus will be singing holiday favorites.
