About 2 Foot Yard
2 Foot Yard (San Francisco) headline with infectious avant-pop style. This adventurous, accessible ensemble (violin, cello, percussion, guitar, and voice) bridges the classical/contemporary music gap with virtuosic style and wit. Fronted by Carla Kihlstedt on vocals and violin, their music alternately evokes the intimacy and warmth of chamber music and the visceral expression of rock. Kihlstedt is also a founding member of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and of the Tin Hat Trio. She has collaborated with many artists from Tom Waits to the Bang On A Can All-Stars. Marika Hughes sings in the a cappella trio Charming Hostess and plays regularly with singer/songwriter Vienna Tang.
