Caleb Klauder Pickin’ and Grinnin’

What happens when two bandmates from years ago get together and chat about old times and new? Lots of fun and laughs, old stories and memories, plus lots of new ones too.


Caleb Klauder came by for a PRP Drop In Session with Michele Van Kleef. The two PDX musicians played together for many years in a legendary Northwest Band called Calobo.

They chatted about old times and new, Caleb shared a new tune live and filled Michele in on what it’s like to tour most of the world’s continents! Caleb just wrapped up mixing a new Caleb Klauder Country Band record and recently released a Foghorn Stringband record too!

Caleb may just take the cake for the busiest man in music today.


A You Tube blast from the past. Calobo from 1997.

    Thank you so much for this! I loved Calobo the first time I ever heard them, and I still love every former member and their music. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see them one time since I’m across the country. It was absolutely lovely to hear Michele and Caleb talking, and of course to hear Caleb sing and play. But hearing the two of them sing together again…that is very, very special. Thank you so much.

    Wow. When you two sang it took me back to Squirrels in Corvallis. I was lucky enough to go to Oregon State and saw Calobo play many times, I still listen to the band, the music is timeless to me. Thanks for this interview, it made my day!
