“Kathleen’s got a set of pipes that can go from torch to sweet little charmer. Henry’s skill on keys and accordion defines jaw-dropping.”
— Jean Bartlett, Pacifica Tribune, March 29 2017
The Flying Salvias - short bio
They call their music Ameri-kind-uh, as their tunes repeatedly stray over the Americana border, blending country, pop, blues, beatnik jazz, swing, and old hippie influences. Songwriters Henry (piano, accordion, vocals) and Kathleen Salvia (vocals, acoustic guitar) founded the band, enlisting "wingmen" such as Jerry Kuhel on guitar, mandolin, cello; David Phillips on pedal steel; bassist Dave Golia; percussionist John Pearson; drummer Ken Owen and others. Hear them regularly at San Gregorio Store.
