Last seen at the 2023 SJI County Fair, SJCT is thrilled to welcome Dirty Cello back to SJI! From Iceland to Italy, and all over the U.S., 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!

 "A five-piece string ensemble that truly pushes the envelope and breaks the barriers, they blend blues, bluegrass and world music sounds with roots in the world of European classical music in a style that is unique and refreshing."- Cloverdale Reveille

"Roudman has been called “the Jimi Hendrix of the cello,” though her versatile vocal approach is another lynchpin to the band’s ongoing appeal." Sacramento News and Review

"A regular performer with various Bay Area symphonies, Roudman has crafted a norm-breaking bluegrass to blues-rock project that brings her instruments and music closer to the audience. As a casual observer, she seems equally driven for the quality of music and performance. It’s no wonder she is gaining fans everywhere she performs.  Dirty Cello, catch them when you can." - Chico Music
