Imhoff will be sharing the Throckmorton stage in a unique double bill with banjo virtuoso Tim Weed and legendary bassist Bobby Vega. Hailed as “one of the world’s greatest banjo players” by Banjo Newsletter Magazine, Weed is pleased to introduce Marin audiences to Dan’s musical talents. Legendary bass player Bobby Vega will open the show.
Imhoff, whose music is often described as “Americana Jazz,” is a northern California songwriter who combines folk-rock, gospel, blues and jazz with vivid lyrics and storytelling. He has five albums of original music and has worked with such extraordinary artists as Charlie Musselwhite and David Grisman. He is also an award-winning journalist and author of 10 books on food, farming, and ecology.
In 2018, Imhoff moved to Valencia, Spain for a sabbatical at the Berklee College of Music international campus where he recorded his most recent release, Peregrino, with some of Valencia’s finest jazz musicians.
The concert features two of Imhoff’s Spanish musical compatriots in Jaume Guerra Meneu on bass and Amadeo Moscardó on piano and keyboards. They’ll be joined by Weed on guitar, banjo, and mandolin, with Chip Trombley on percussion and Shea Breaux Wells on vocals.
