Dirty Cello live at Holly Hagg
Dirty Cello have something of an animal following having played for water buffaloes, giraffes, elephants and even playing a duet with a parrot! So of course, when two members of the band came trekking at Holly Hagg they had a little surprise for the alpacas afterwards! The alpacas were rather bemused and intrigued as you can see in our video of the impromptu recital…
San Francisco based band Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues, rock, and Americana. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues and rock with a wailing cello, to virtuosic stompin’ Americana, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
