    Grammy® Award winning and Juno-nominated artist John Reischman is “one of the world's undisputed masters of the mandolin” according to Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine. Capable of swinging between re-inventions of traditional old-time, bluegrass, and compelling original tunes, Reischman is renowned for his impeccable tone and taste. In the late 1970’s, he helped define the New Acoustic movement as an original member of the Tony Rice Unit, recording several influential albums on Rounder Records.

    Reischman and his Vancouver-based band have released 5 critically-acclaimed albums, and Billboard says, “John Reischman and The Jaybirds are in their prime.” Dirty Linen magazine says “gorgeous three part harmonies” And SingOut! Magazine says “seamlessly excellent . . . with a rare ability to produce music that is simultaneously traditional and contemporary, the Jaybirds are a band that continues to hit on all cylinders.”

    Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century.
    Since its beginning in 1997, each of Tin Hat’s six recordings has been regarded by listeners and fellow musicians as a benchmark in the ongoing exploration of vibrant new pathways in acoustic music. Concurrently, their captivating live performances throughout the United States and Europe have surprised and delighted audiences with well-honed compositions and the joy of spontaneous musical discovery. Hailed for “interweaving Old World Europe with post-modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves” (The New York Press), the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device. As the New York Times notes, “it’s solid, appealing and fresh.”

    Join banjo master Tim Weed for his hometown birthday concert! Weed's band serves up an eclectic blend of bluegrass, classical, jazz and world music with stunning harmony vocals, drawing influences from India, Tibet, Africa and Latin America. Weed was a 16-year-old Southern California surfer when he broke out as a banjo-playing prodigy and catapulted into his lifelong courtship with the banjo. "Tim can play everything from hardcore bluegrass to Bach," says David Grisman." He's the Ali Akbar Khan of the banjo."

    Weed's music has been featured on National Public Radio, and in a recent feature by Paul Liberatore, he was hailed as "One of Marin's finest string musicians and singer-songwriters. Weed is a lot more than a banjo virtuoso a former L.A. session musician, he's a multi-instrumentalist who also possesses a trained tenor voice with a jaw-dropping range."

    Weed's band of acoustic virtuosos are "musical innovators who traverse genres and defy boundaries. Their exciting improvisation and dazzling interplay epitomize what great live music is all about -- an experience not to be missed!" - Rhythm & Roots Concert Series

    "Tim's multifaceted playing brings unusual influences together, from old-time flamenco with Eastern spices. It's a tasty blend!" -Peter Rowan

    A pianist as well as a conductor, Wachs’ performance with the Minnesota Orchestra “proved a revelation, delivering a technically impeccable, emotionally powerful performance of two Mozart piano concertos and a pair of solo works,” raved the St. Paul Pioneer Press. With the encouragement of Zubin Mehta, Wachs began his studies with the late Enrique Barenboim in Tel Aviv before pursuing studies at the Zürich Academy and graduating from The Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School. He has also participated at such festivals at Aspen, Tanglewood and Verbier. Wachs has also been entrusted with preparing orchestras for Valery Gergiev to Vladimir Spivakov, and has served as Assistant Conductor to Osmo Vänskä at the Minnesota Orchestra and at the National Orchestra of France under Kurt Masur. Additionally, he has served as cover conductor for the Houston Symphony and the Rotterdam Philharmonic.
