Dirty Cello stopped by the Strings studio to perform a few audience-favorite covers from their 2015 album, The Beach House Sessions. Lead singer and cellist Rebecca Roudman, a genre-bending player who doubles as a cellist in the Santa Rosa Symphony, tackles the band’s repertoire with a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility. She plays her Luis & Clark carbon-fiber cello standing up, using a handmade stand by husband and Dirty Cello guitarist Jason Eckl, all while bassist Paul Smith-Stewart holds down the bluesy-bluegrass bass line.

Watch the threesome perform “Fever,” “House of the Rising Sun,” and a Dirty Cello original “Work in Progress.”
