Songs About Something: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue - Tunes in the Round - Host: Paige Clem
Songs About Something: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue - Tunes in the Round - Host: Paige Clem
Americana singer-songwriter, Paige Clem’s arrestingly direct lyrics and velvety, unaffected vocals exude that most elusive of musical qualities — Soul. With a natural gift for connecting with an audience, her roots-infused music is melodic and warm, yet packs a punch with tales of loss and love. In addition to her original music, Paige frequently lends supporting vocals to various Bay Area acts and showcases and sings with the popular Grateful Dead tribute, The Eleven, Bob Dylan/Neil Young tribute, Shakey Zimmerman, the retro/soul tribute, Paige & The Rage. She has shared the stage with members of Dead and Co., Further, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, ALO, Fruition, Anders Osborne, RatDog, Tea Leaf Green, New Monsoon, Moon Alice, Tracorum, Front Country, Midnight North, and Dead Winter Carpenters, and has performed with Melissa Ethridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, The Brother's Comatose, Shook Twins, and many more. She has served multiple stints as songwriter-in-residence at The Bazaar Café, hosts the monthly series "Songs About Something" at The Ivy Room in Albany, and has appeared at High Sierra Music Festival, DelFest, Hangtown Halloween Ball, Cuko Rakko Music Festival, and ULUV Music Day. She will be featured in the upcoming documentary, The Creative High, and is currently recording her debut solo album slated to be released in the fall of 2016.
Joe Craven
Joe Craven
Award winning creativity educator, former museum curator, visual artist, actor/storyteller, event emcee and fashion insultant, Joe has made music with many folks – notably violinist Stephane Grappelli and Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia – to multi-whirled string guy David Lindley, harmonica wizard Howard Levy and seven years recording and touring with banjo fusionist Alison Brown. David Grisman declared “Everything Joe touches turns to music”, with whom Joe worked with for 17 years.
Always looking for the next expression and object to make music with, Joe is a musical madman with anything that has strings attached including violin, mandolin, tin can, bedpan, cookie tin, mouth bow, CBG, berimbau, balalaika, boot ‘n lace and double-necked whatever. Joe has created music and sound effects for commercials, soundtracks, computer games and contributions to several Grammy-nominated projects. An educator for over 30 years, he has presented at well over 200 schools, universities, civic and community groups. Joe is the Executive Director of RiverTunes and Vocáli Voice Camp in California and a coast to coast Emcee of a variety of music festivals, notably Delfest and the 40th / 41st Telluride Bluegrass.

“The man recognizes no boundaries. He just won’t accept that no one is supposed to be that good at everything.” ~ Jambands.com / www.joecraven.com
