ohnny Campbell comes from a long line of fiddlers. There’s his dad, his grandpa, his great-grandpa. So naturally, he moved from Tennessee to the Bay Area to join a bluegrass band. No, we didn’t get that backward. He fiddles here, for the local band Windy Hill. The group is named after the Portola Valley landmark and was started by a couple of Menlo-Atherton High School graduates. Though the Bay Area is known more for redwoods than bluegrass, the five musicians seem to be ambling happily along their creatively rootsy paths. They perform from San Francisco to Santa Cruz, revere the bluegrass icon Bill Monroe, and recently put out their first album, “Let’s Go To The Fair.” “There’s not many young, traditional bluegrass bands,” says banjo player Ryan Breen, who can see Windy Hill from his On the cover: Thomas Wille, left, and Ryan Breen performing on stage at Cafe Du Nord.

We love it, and I think people recognize that.” While at Colorado State University in 2008, Mr. Breen started the band with fellow M-A graduate Henry Warde, a mandolinist. The two returned home after college in 2009 and reconnected with bass player Kyle McCabe, who had been in their class at M-A. Guitarist Thomas Wille joined later, as did Mr. Campbell. Mr. Breen met Mr. Campbell at a music festival and invited him into the band. The fiddler, who was just visiting California, decided to stay. “It’s a close-knit bluegrass community in the Bay Area,” Mr. Breen says. “It’s easy to make new friends.” The atmosphere is decidedly down-home

on a recent afternoon at Mr. McCabe’s West Menlo Park family home, where he’s lived since graduating from U.C. Berkeley. Their bandmates weren’t able to make it today, but McCabe, Breen and Campbell contentedly mix bass, banjo and fiddle into a few spirited tunes full of fast picking. A dachshund and a wire-haired terrier scamper around the patio, and there’s a fresh, spicy smell of tomato plants growing in a box. Mr. Campbell takes a pull from a bottle of beer and looks satisfied. “Handsome Molly,” Mr. Breen sings, “wherever she may be.” The musicians try some harmonies, reaching for what Bill Monroe famously described as bluegrass’ “high, lonesome sound.” Some don’t quite gel yet, but the guys freely admit they’re all working See ARTSCENE, page 23

together on being stronger players. “It’s not like I’m a bass scholar,” Mr. McCabe says. “I’m learning.” That’s been happening since high school, when the M-A friends used to hang out at events like the High Sierra Music Festival, soaking in every note. Now Windy Hill has been playing its own venues, including the Little Fox Theatre in Redwood City, and Palo Alto’s Dragon Theatre. The band plays some original tunes, including “Highway 84,” which Mr. Warde wrote about that lonely drive home from band practice to the Coastside. “Our new goal is to play 10 gigs a month,” Mr. Breen says. By day, he works at a law firm, while Mr. Campbell is a welder. As for Mr. McCabe, joining the band also helped him get hired in this economy. When the Old Port Lobster Shack opened a few months back in Ladera, he asked the management if they needed a band for the grand opening. “They said, ‘That’s cool, but can you cook?’” he says, laughing. Now he’s got a job and a band. “Bluegrass kind of took me in its lifeboat.” A

nsect Discovery Day, an afternoon dedicated to looking for insects in the wild, inspecting deceased and perhaps exotic insects under a microscope, and even eating insects, is set for Sunday, Sept. 18, from 1 to 4 p.m., at the Portola Valley Town Center at 765 Portola Road. Some of the six-legged creatures on display will be beneficial, and some will be harmful, including an exhibit on a particularly harmful tick local to Portola Valley and Woodside that can carry Lyme disease, a potentially serious bacterial illness that affects the nervous system. “This slow silent killer is unlike any other bacteria,” said Sherry Cagan, a member of the Portola Valley Lyme Action Group, a team of eight residents, four of whom have chronic Lyme disease. Ms. Cagan has late-stage Lyme disease, in part, she said in an email, because she had such a hard time getting an accurate diagnosis and early treatment. She said she saw “dozens of well-

respected doctors” but it took five years and a “near-death experience” before she found out what she had. If diagnosed early, Lyme is easily treated, she said, but if it gets a foothold, “it can become a personal nightmare.” It can present symptoms that mimic serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Bell’s palsy, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, she said. “In some cases, long-term untreated Lyme can be the onset of such diseases,” she added. Go to tinyurl.com/PVlyme1 and tinyurl.com/PVlyme2 for information from the San Mateo County Health Department. Go to www.cdc.gov/lyme/ for information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Ticks are not to be feared,” Ms. Cagan added in her message. “Our mission is to educate our community of residents as well as medical professionals about this preventable disease. We are also aiding in the search for better diagnostics and a cure for late stage Lyme disease.” A

We do not believe that any person is exposed to these chemicals at levels constituting a health or safety risk. However, we have not made a formal determination that actual exposure levels are below the Proposition 65 "no significant risk" levels for carcinogens or "no observable effect" levels for chemicals known to cause reproductive harm, and we have not performed a risk analysis to determine the precise amount of exposure that any individual would receive over a 70 year period.
