Updated Oct 7, 2008 'Extended Roots' is an acoustic band comprised of 13 women from the East Bay Area. We have come together from many diverse professions with one common passion, love of music. The group is made up of teachers, artists, managers, a floral designer, a financial analyst, an occupational therapist, a geologist, an attorney, wives, mothers and grandmothers. We perform on an on-going basis in the greater Bay Area. Our repertoire, which includes both instrumental and vocal numbers, is predominately traditional music from the roots of America. The music the early immigrants brought with them, now called 'Old-Time', 'Celtic' and 'Bluegrass,' is kept alive by Extended Roots.
