Growing up in Boston Massachusetts, Peter Janson listened to his father, an accomplished amateur guitarist, play solo guitar every day. Peter started playing by the age of seven, and starting doing pop gigs at age 15. For the last twenty-five years he has performed in venues large and small in a variety of styles; pop, rock, fusion, folk, Celtic, classical, and jazz. His sound is a melding of all these. Come and hear Peter, performing solo jazz guitar songs inspired by guitar legends like Joe Pass, and Earl Klugh.

His newest release, Getting To Here, is a triumph in the face of the pandemic lockdown when the isolation had such a negative impact on him he nearly quit playing. Now, growing in international recognition, Peter signed a worldwide sub-publishing deal with SUPREME SONGS Limited (UK based) in October 2022. http://www.peterjanson.com

"Music is in Adam Traum's blood. His father, Happy Traum, was a Greenwich Village folk music icon, who recorded with Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan. The younger Traum is a chip off the old block, yet he definitely puts his own stamp on roots music. The vocalist-guitarist's mix of folk, country, rockabilly and blues has made him one of the more intriguing entertainers on the Americana scene." - Jim Harrington, Oakland Tribune/San Jose Mercury News www.adamtraumguitar.com

Rupert Wates is English but has been called "a prime figure in American music" (acousticmusic.com). A full-time musician since the 90's, he came to the US in 2006 after a 5-year stint in Paris, including his own jazz group. He now splits his time, when not on the road playing (120 performances a year), between NY City and Colorado

Rupert's music is folk with jazz and cabaret influences. All of his many CDs have received very positive reviews. The quality of his writing is clearly demonstrated by the fact that many other performers cover his material (20 in 2016 alone), including two tribute CDs devoted entirely to his songs. He has twice been voted "artist of the year" by the International House Concert network (concertsinyourhome.com), and has won over 40 songwriting and performing awards. www.rupertwatesmucic.com

"Narrative storytelling is superb - even by the highest folk music standards" -Orlando Sentinel

Santa Cruz "Queen of Steel", Patti Maxine, won her first steel championship some 60+ years ago! She is a major force in Western Swing, Hawaiian, and Americana music. She is also no slouch on guitar and as a vocalist, and is always in demand to accompany others from the young to "very seasoned". Patti has played The Ugly Mug more times than anyone else, over a 15-year period. She is currently one third of Jazz The Dog .www.pattimaxine.com
