Over one hundred years ago, black people found blues music to be an outlet for their suffering, and a source of solace. Many took up playing on the streets as a way of supporting themselves, work being largely unavailable. Even some all-time greats like Howlin’ Wolf. Those who were blind or otherwise handicapped found this to be the only way to stay alive.

Bob Sala sounds like the kind of amiable guy most listeners would like to get to know better. He usually begins his show with folk, country, and old-timey music. “It’s an easy way to get rolling” he says. “After people have woken up and had coffee, I start cutting a rug,” with faster-paced bluegrass, emphasizing banjo. “I try to keep it as acoustic as possible.” “Uncorked” can be heard every Sunday morning from 8-11 a.m. on KRSH (95.9 FM and krsh.com online). For more on Sala, go to his nonexistent blog.

Beth Hart, In her performances, including London’s Royal Albert Hall withJoe Bonamassa and the Kennedy Center with Jeff Beck, Hart overpowers the stage with brassy sexuality, but she’s most concerned with relaying her issues and emotions “as honestly and vulnerably as possible.” “It’s not party music,” she says, though “I’m not the kind of girl who should run for mayor.” Hart connected with Bonamassa in 2011 for three albums and a Grammy nomination in 2013. That collaboration is ongoing, she says, but “I don’t consider myself a blues artist. It’s blues, jazz, soul, gospel, singer/songwriter, and rockin’- heavy-roll.”

Dirty Cello, a local band that generates pure excitement, was started by cellist Rebecca Roudman and guitarist Jason Eckl, eight years ago. Dirty Cello has toured the Middle East, Iceland, and China. In the latter, their music had to be submitted to censors looking for subversion, even though it was all-instrumental. Singing wasn’t allowed. The ever-vigilant Chinese changed the band’s name to Rock & Roll Cello. An International Women’s Day show on Mar. 7 at Hopmonk Sebastopol will benefit The Living Room, a Sonoma County day-care center serving homeless and at-risk women and their children.
