Howe Gelb has traveled many a long and dusty mile to get to his place of prominence as an elder statesman of freewheeling Americana and "Erosion Rock"; A brand of music changing with the elements on a daily basis as nature intended, like giant sand, believing that continuous evolution should be a palpable element in music, as when when songs were first handed over again and again, before the frozen capture of a recording studio.
Born in 1956, had moved to Tucson, Arizona, as a teen in the early 1970s after his home was destroyed by flood back in Pennsylvania. When not on the road, he lives with his family in Barrio Santa Rosa.

Deep Dish Theater will present a developmental workshop of Debris, a new play written and performed by Katja Hill, January 15-19. Directed by Artistic Director Paul Frellick, the workshop continues the company's 13th season at University Mall.
Debris is a funny and moving memoir centered around Ms. Hill, her mother and a journey to Finland, her mother's homeland. Traveling together, their trip becomes an exploration of their relationship and a revealing look at how memory functions in our lives.
Katja Hill has been a frequent presence on the Deep Dish stage, dating back to the inaugural season production of Shaw's Arms and the Man, and including memorable turns in Polish Joke, The Misanthrope, Orson's Shadow, Summer and Smoke, and Henceforward, among many others. She also brought her earlier solo show, Cornucopia of Me, to the theater for a limited run in 2009.Find out more »
