A rare Bay Area appearance of Greg & Jere Canote, identical twins whose repertoire spans Americana and includes early country music, quirky novelty songs, swing classics, and rare fiddle tunes, all uniquely interpreted through their positive world view. They’ve shared their music for more than half a century, teaching and performing at countless festivals and workshops, and on radio and television. But their exceptional music is only part of the story. Greg and Jere have another unique characteristic – they are two of the happiest people you will ever meet. And their happiness is downright contagious.
The first event of an entire weekend with the Canote Twins – there will also be a square dance on Saturday night, and free community showing of the new documentary The Canote Twins at the Freight on Sunday afternoon. See https://www.berkeleyoldtimemusic.org/canotes for details.
