Ancient Future in Concert

Ancient Future 'World Without Walls' Reunion Concert at the Freight and Salvage Oct.16, 2013

"Ancient Future is a rare kind of band that might simultaneously aggravate purists, confound New Age dilettantes, seduce skeptics, and dazzle just about everybody else. Delicious compositions, intricate arrangements, crisp playing and impeccable production put these ambitious voyagers in a league of their own."Derk Richardson, San Francisco Bay Guardian

Concert Dates of Ancient-Future.Com Records Artists

Due to the pandemic, all of Ancient Future's in person concerts have been postponed indefinitely. We are tentatively booking in person outdoor events starting in 2022. To see what you missed in previous years, visit the events past page. See also private events.

TBA Spring 2022, Ancient Future Guitar and Tabla Duet with Matthew Montfort (scalloped fretboard guitar) and Vishal Nagar (tabla), Himalayan Fair, Live Oak Park, 1300 Shattuck Ave., North Berkeley, CA 94709. The Himalayan Fair was rained out in 2019. The spring 2020 fair was postponed due to COVID concerns until October 2020, and then postponed again until October 2021. The rise of the Delta variant in the midst of high vaccine hesitancy due to politics and conspiracy theories have forced yet another postponement. It is hoped that the fair will be able to resume in 2022.

Alternate Reality Concerts from the Ancient Future

While we are waiting for in person events to be both safe and economically viable, Ancient Future has embarked on a series of Alternate Reality Concerts announced in the Ancient Future Times. The very first Ancient Future Alternate Reality Concert with musicians performing together in real time is scheduled for June 12! We hope to add more shows as we raise funds through donations to pay for them.

Support the Concerts

Due to decades of arts cutbacks, for quite some time many of the presenters most supportive of world fusion music have suspended operations or reduced the number of events in their seasons. This trend accelerated in the current political climate, and then the pandemic hit us. For our 43nd season, we need your help more than ever to replace lost operating income caused by concerts cancelled due to COVID-19. More info.
