Peter Bolland and Kevin Roth

Peter Bolland is a writer, philosophy professor and in-demand speaker. He also happens to be a top music talent. His band The Coyote Problem made two albums, Wire in 2005 and California in 2007, both produced by Sven-Erik Seaholm. Both albums earned the Best Americana Album prize at the San Diego Music Awards in their respective years. The Coyote Problem had killer songs and an eclectic sound, leading to opening for acts as diverse as Son Volt, Jason Mraz, and Blue Oyster Cult. He’s also a seasoned multi-instrumentalist, laying a wide variety of instruments on other people’s albums, things like acoustic and electric guitar, lap steel guitar, Dobro, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica.

Peter is a long-time Folk Heritage favorite, for good reason. His voice is haunting, his songs are powerful, his instrumental skills are impressive, and his presence is commanding.

Kevin Roth is a Renaissance man. His music, art, and books have delighted audiences worldwide. His music spans the world with contributions to traditional, original, contemporary and jazz influences. He’s been playing mountain dulcimer since age thirteen and his impressive career has spanned over three decades. He’s recorded a dozen albums for Folkways/Smithsonian Records, recorded album collaborations with Paul Stookey, and has won over a dozen awards, including “The American Library Association Notable Recordings”. Kevin’s voice has been heard by millions singing the theme song to the hit PBS TV show; “Shining Time Station” (Thomas The Tank Engine).

Throughout his career, Kevin’s concert appearances for both adult and family audiences have taken him from festivals to intimate concerts to major concert halls. Kevin has performed twice at The White House and has had made many radio & television appearances throughout the world. He’s recently made San Diego his home, and we’re looking forward to his first SDFH concert!

“He sings like a bird and plays the most luscious dulcimer you’ll ever hear.”
