  Keith Greeninger & Dayan Kai


In the world of music we call Americana, the voice of the classic troubadour is something we long for. The minstrel calling to us about humanity. This is Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai. More often solo artists. Together they meld their musical stories providing a picture that is larger than life.

Dayan now lives back in his beloved Hawaii, so these two do not get to play together often. But we were greeted with exciting news just before finalizing this concert.  Keith has let us know that Dayan will be joining him for their return to Música Del Río. It has been five years, as in too long, since we heard them together. And they will be together here on January 20. We trust you will join us in welcoming them back to our home.

Dayan Kai was born without sight, but not without soul. A student of music since the age of two, the diversity of his musical skill and background offers a truly full palette. He has studied mandolin with Dave Grisman and trumpet with Ray Brown. His five solo albums include works of folk, jazz and world music.

The list of instruments Dayan plays could take up all the space we have here. From piano, accordion and guitar (acoustic, electric and resophonic) to banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and trombone; we can never be sure what Dayan will show up with and play.

Keith Greeninger brings a very unpretentious style to powerful stories needing to be told. He took his hammer to Nicaragua in the 1980’s to help build schools and homes for the people displaced by the Contra war. His nights in Central America were spent listening and learning the stories and music of the compesinos he worked with.

Returning to San Francisco Keith brought introspective song writing to his work with the trio known as City Folk. With City Folk, touring solo and with Dayan, Keith has made a difference everywhere he offers his music.

Keith and Dayan will be sharing many songs with us at Música Del Río. Songs from their duo album Make It Rain are only a small part of what they have in store for us. Please join us in welcoming their return to Música Del Río.
