An Evening In Austin
Austin City Limits Concert Performance (75 Minutes • Color • Stereo)
Kate appeared on Austin City Limits in 1985 at the height of her career,
just months before she was diagnosed with acute
leukemia. It was her first major television exposure and a great success.
Accompanied by long-time band members Nina Gerber
and Ford James, and special guest Randy Sabien, Kate delivered a strong
performance that remained faithful to her
well-known California folk style.
Kate’s family and KLRU TV restored the show to its original 75 minutes, and
Nina Gerber and Tom Diamant contributed their
years of experience with Kate’s music in remixing the 16-track audio master
for excellent balance and sound quality.
This concert video features Kate’s most popular songs, plus two songs
previously unreleased. NAIRD awarded the soundtrack
Best Folk Album of 1989.

Here In California
Studio Performance (29 Minutes • Color • Mono)
Coming in the middle of her career in 1980, this performance shows Kate
firmly established as a popular singer/songwriter,
but before her audience expanded from local to national. A constant presence
on radio with her own folk shows, she also
launched new folk festivals and other music events. With the advent of
community access to cable broadcasting in the
Eighties, Kate set her sights on video.
Here In California features seven songs from those initial three
albums. All were written by Kate except The Redtail Hawk,
with which she closed virtually all of her performances. Kate is
accompanied by Nina Gerber on lead guitar, mandolin, and
harmonica, and Rick Byars on bass and harmony vocals. This video is
also a rare chance to see Kate playing piano (as well
as guitar), often logistically difficult in concerts. While Here In
California doesn’t have the glossy PBS production values of
An Evening In Austin, we think you’ll enjoy watching Kate perform at
an important crossroads in her career.

Musical Interview Studio
Performance (56 Minutes • B&W • Mono)
In 1975, Kate Wolf was interviewed at her home and at radio station KVRE,
both in Santa Rosa, California. Coming ten years
before Austin City Limits and the year before her first album, we glimpse
Kate as an established performer but just
beginning to start the business and publishing facets of her career. This
footage was part of Kate Wolf's personal video
archive. Kate's family hopes that the historical insight makes up for the
technical imperfections of this early video recording.
