The Crooked Jades request the pleasure of your company as we finally celebrate 20+ years in our hometown of San Francisco!
The Jades have traveled countless miles across 4 continents, 10 countries, and a multitude of festivals to bring you 8 critically acclaimed albums including “Worlds On Fire” (chosen by Sean Penn for the soundtrack of “Into The Wild” his Oscar-nominated film) and “Seven Sisters: A Kentucky Portrait” the soundtrack to the award-winning PBS documentary. The Jades were also featured on the PBS arts and culture series “Spark”.
It’s been an incredible journey and we want to express our gratitude for the past and present musicians who have made The Crooked Jades so profound and transcendent. We would especially like to thank you all for your love and support over the years.

We're excited that two of our Crooked Jades family members of the past will join us for this show – Tom Lucas on banjos & fiddle, and Elise Engelberg on fiddle (get ready for some twin fiddles)!
7-10pm / $10 / Make-Out Room @ 3225 22nd St, San Francisco, California

We are really enjoying sharing music with our newest band member, Emily Mann, a multi-talented musician who has studed with Bruce Molsky, Darol Anger, Martin Hayes, and Alasdair Fraser to mention a few. Emily has performed with Calliope (with Tashina Clarridge), Knuckle Knockers, the Bee Eaters, and Paper Wings.
This San Francisco quintet keep true to their old-time string band heart, yet in subtle, weird ways, they exaggerate the slightly-crazed aura of the rural pre-radio era music. It makes for a haunting, sophisticated trip to Appalachia. Mixing originals and traditional songs flawlessly, this might be the finest band to come out of the string-band resurgence.
