Trying to pin down Stephanie Schneiderman to any one genre, talent or discipline is next to impossible. Whether pursuing her prolific work as a solo artist, playing drums for Dirty Martini, stepping on the stage in the musical The Full Monty, producing a successful humanitarian concert series for refugees in Uganda, or producing the soundtrack for 3 popular children's DVD's, Stephanie is one of the most diversely talented artists in the Northwest.
With eight solo recordings under her belt - plus four releases with her collaborative bands Dirty Martini and Swan Sovereign, Schneiderman is a prolific recording artist who enjoys exploring the threads that connect Americana folk, pop, soul and trip-hop. Her most recent album, Live at the Old Church, features Stephanie on piano/guitar, who offers a spellbinding live performance that old and new fans will revere.
“Tony Furtado is a major musical force without a doubt. He has his black-belt in voice and bottleneck guitar and his banjo playing scares the crap out of me.”
– David Lindley, musical adventurer
Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story). All of the music of America is in Tony’s music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: “True talent doesn’t need categories.”
Luke Price began competing in fiddle contests and quickly made a name for himself winning the National Title at ages 12 and 17, along with a long list of awards from contests all across the country, including The Fiddlers Frolics and the Grand Masters. In 2014, he became the National Old-Time Fiddling Grand Champion.
