Kate's family is happy to report that we've completely overhauled the Official Kate Wolf Website. We started katewolf.com 23 years ago, in 1995! Last revamped in 1998, it was time for a new look.
Bonnie Kate Wolf, Kate's granddaughter as well as an accomplished illustrator and graphic designed, brought our site into the modern age, and Kate's son Max incorporated modern e-commerce and transferred the content.
We hope you enjoy the new site as we say hello to the new year and goodbye to the old site!
Fare thee well old site
Kate Wolf 75th Birthday Concert
and Benefit for Camp Winnarainbow
Friday, January 27, 2017
Freight & Salvage, Berkeley, California
Kate Wolf's family is organizing a concert in memory of the late California folk singer/songwriter on her 75th birthday. The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley hosts the concert on Friday, January 27, 2017. The concert will benefit Camp Winnarainbow, Wavy Gravy's circus and performing arts camp for economically disadvantaged youth.
Kate often performed at the Freight & Salvage when it was a small coffee house that held under 100 people. Performers warmed up in the stock room, and Kate (and her son) sold records from the stage during intermission. She also participated in many benefits at the Freight and in Berkeley, so we'd like to extend the tradition by having this party also be a benefit...this time for Camp Winnarainbow.
Nina Gerber, who performed with Kate during most of her career, will accompany throughout the evening. Nina and Chris Webster open the evening and are followed by the Cache Valley Drifters, who appeared on Kate's first two albums. A set of songs in the round features Sherry Austin, who recorded a Kate Wolf tribute album, and also Don Coffin and Hugh Shacklett, early collaborators with Kate. Poor Man's Whiskey, who also recorded a Kate Wolf tribute album, finishes up the evening. Then everyone will gather on stage to close with Kate's Give Yourself To Love. Wavy Gravy and Bill Amatneek emcee.

Thanks to support from her friends and fans, Kate’s family released her first three albums on her original Owl Records label. This was accomplished through our second Kickstarter, which also resulted in reprinting A Kate Wolf Retrospective, radio station KRCB's album of the first Kate Wolf festival)
