Dirty Cello performs live on the Village Green stage

Get ready for cello like you’ve never heard before! On Sunday, June 23 at 5 p.m., Dirty Cello comes to the Village Green as part of the FREE Summer Concert Series presented by Orcas Center, OrcaSong Farm, Country Corner, and GiveOrcas/OICF.

Combine the virtuosic wail of Jimi Hendrix, the soul of BB King, and the fire of Bill Monroe, and add a whole lot of cello, and you get the Dirty Cello band. Dirty Cello performs all over the world, from Iceland to Israel, from Scottish castles to underground caves presenting an energetic and wild show that’s been described as, “Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” by Oakland Magazine.

“The band plays every style imaginable and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.” – Good Times Santa Cruz.

Don’t miss this fun in the summer sun! Another great FREE concert thanks to donations from local supporters including Buck Bay Shellfish Farm, West Sound Marina, and Maria and Bill Burke. More information and full concert lineup can be found at www.OrcasCenter.org.
