You'll see some of the Bay Area's most exciting performers, who come from 5 countries on 4 continents! Here's the lineup of musicians:
Singer-songwriter, guitarist, and pianist Eoin Harrington is known for his engaging charm and a knack for telling a compelling story in song. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Harrington has adopted San Francisco to launch his music career, receiving airplay on Bay Area radio stations, filling the major area clubs and opening for acts such as Alanis Morisette, the Fray, Counting Crows, Switchfoot, the Pussycat Dolls, and the Goo Goo Dolls. He has released three CDs, written music for film and television, and contributed the song “What If” to the 2007 MGM film "Her Best Move."
Out of Bounds String Quartet
Made up of four string players who love to groove, Out of Bounds brings jazz, rock, funk and fiddle music together for each eclectic performance. Featuring 2-time Grammy Award-winning jazz violinist Mads Tolling (Turtle Island String Quartet, Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea), violinist Hande Erdem, Grammy nominees violist Emily Onderdonk (Quartet San Francisco, Peter Gabriel) and cellist Joseph Hebert (Santana, Linda Ronstadt, Aaron Neville).
Mariana Ingold and Kit Walker
This amazing duo pairs two internationally known, groundbreaking artists. Keyboardist, composer, and producer Kit Walker is best known for his Windham Hill Jazz albums which received international critical acclaim, high rotation radio airplay, and made the top 10 of Billboard's contemporary jazz charts. Mariana Ingold is a singer, keyboardist, and composer from Uruguay who has played on over 100 CDs and toured worldwide, sharing the stage with some of South America’s best-known musicians.
A prolific singer-songwriter, guitarist, cornetist, and flugal horn player, Chris Saunders embraces blues, rock, jazz, and cabaret infused with his immense reservoir of soul. His three CDs showcase his songwriting abilities, but it is in his live performances that audiences are astonished by his gift of comedy and mercurial improvisation abilities. Chris performed at the Fillmore in 1967 and has played with Tom Waits, Michael Bloomfield, Vernon Black, and members of the Sons of Champlin.
