Eric Bibb is a Grammy nominee and has become a familiar face  and voice  in the U.S. and Europe. Nominated for nine W.C. Handy Blues Music Awards and winner of the Best Newcomer title in the British Blues Awards, Bibb has been appropriately described as "discreetly awesome" and "a total original." As his popularity escalates, earlier comparisons to legendary greats Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal are being replaced by quotes that speak to Bibb's ability to "use standard blues ingredients to cook up something all his own."

Bibb's rich and sensitive vocals and lyrics provide a perfect balance to his fine finger picking technique. Purveying a beautifully realized and deftly accomplished soulful folk-blues, Bibb has no problem blending various genres effortlessly, melding a traditional rootsy American style with a subtle, contemporary sensibility.

"Been greeted like a tramp, greeted like a star
From Albert Hall to rundown bars
I've seen it all  in my time."    Eric Bibb

A distinguished history

Over the course of many album releases over the years Bibb has been nominated for multiple Blues Music Awards in several categories. In addition to the Grammy-nominated Shakin' a Tailfeather children's album (with Taj Mahal and Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir), other noted albums included Friends, which featured  Odetta, Charlie Musselwhite, Guy Davis and Mahal as special guests. Two collaborations with his father (who lives in Vancouver) were A Family Affair and Praising Peace: A Tribute to Paul Robeson, which Stony Plain released in 2006. More recent was his 2010 Booker's Guitar, a tribute to blues pioneer Bukka White, on which he played White's steel-bodied National guitar.

A four-decade career, 35 albums, countless radio and television shows and non-stop touring have given Eric Bibb a world view that's tempered by curiosity and compassion, and the ability to see himself in other peoples' shoes.

"Gotta help one another
Like the ol' folks used to do
A hand is on the gate
Let a brother walk through."    Eric Bibb

"Adams is fast developing as a songwriter who both inspires and questions"
- Nic Harcourt / Los Angeles Times Magazine - Jan 2010


"...one of the 21st-century writers whose songs are worth exploring."
- Wall Street Journal - 2009

"one of the most consistently eloquent and pleasing singer / songwriters on the scene. Indeed, his brand of musical melancholy is so specific and evocative that, sometimes, listening through his catalog is the only way to survive a moment or a day."
- No Depression - 2014

"...Adams fuses intimate, emotionally powerful lyrics with graceful, low-key roots-based indie folk on his fifth solo effort, The Mighty Storm both soothing and challenging"
- All Music Guide - 2014

"an organic record, executed with precision and feeling... possessed of a coherent musical vision and emotional resonance that stands above the crowd. T Bone Burnett would be likely to give this one a nod."
- Minor 7th - 2014

"...The Mighty Storm, his fifth album, recorded in Nashville, is a wondrous, poetic collection of enchanting songs"
- Entertainment Realm Blog - 2014

Chimera Duo is an english horn and harp duo formed in 2012 with the intent to perform small intimate chamber music concerts reminiscent of nineteenth century salons. Choosing two of the softest, most delicate orchestral instruments, the duo is uniquely suited for this purpose. Whimsical, romantic and atmospheric works shape the ensemble's repertoire.

Lindsay Edwards is the acting Principal English Horn in the Hawaii Symphony. She also holds the english horn chair with the Boise Philharmonic and is Principal Oboe of the Boise Baroque Orchestra and the Opera Idaho Orchestra. She has traveled the world extensively as a member of The World Orchestra. In her free time Lindsay enjoys playing with her pekingese named Wolfgang.

Matthew is the Principal Harpist with the Boise Philharmonic and Opera Idaho and is a permanent substitute harpist with the Utah Symphony, Grand Teton Music Festival, Seattle Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and Anchorage Symphony. Matthew has previously served as Acting Principal Harpist with the Utah Symphony/Utah Opera for the 2013/2014 season. He is a graduate of Manhattan School of Music and Juilliard's Pre College.

Tom Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist/composer, joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a band that will tear the roof off of anyplace that has one and raise the spirits of everyone around. Rigney, now in his second decade at the helm of Flambeau, has in recent years become one of the premier blues and roots music violinists in the world. Flambeau showcases his passionate, virtuoso fiddling, his commanding stage presence, his range, depth, and originality as a composer, and of course, those notorious red boots! His bandmates are veterans of the great bands of Charles Brown, Queen Ida, Clifton Chenier, and many others, and together they generate enough heat and energy to ignite a dance floor or lift an audience to its feet.

DOORS OPEN AT 6:00pm -- see you there!

-----

Flambeau specializes in fiery Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes. Their high energy live show features tight ensemble playing, deeply infectious grooves, and spectacular soloing, all delivered with warmth, humor, and passionate intensity. Most of the repertoire is composed by Rigney, but they also mix in a few classics from the Cajun/zydeco/New Orleans songbook. And if, along the way, you pick up a trace of Rigney's Irish roots or a little Boogie Woogie and roots Rock and Roll, it just makes the musical gumbo that much tastier. In the past decade Rigney's skills as a composer have broadened and deepened, and he is today writing some of the most evocative and powerfully uplifting music you will hear anywhere. And Rigney's charismatic stage presence and high-energy delivery draw the audience into his performances and make them feel that they are an integral part of the music and the show.

Voted Best Cajun/Zydeco Band of 2004 by the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame, Tom Rigney and Flambeau have been making some serious noise on the American Roots Music scene for over a decade. Flambeau has been tearing things up at festivals, dances, and concerts all over the place--from the Ft. Lauderdale Cajun Crawfish Festival to the Edmonton Blues Festival to the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee to the Alaska State Fair, to the Spring Bues Festival in Ecaussinnes, Belgium. They have become audience favorites at numerous annual festivals, community concerts, and performing arts centers. Their debut CD, Red Boots and Rice, was released on the Parhelion label in early 2000, following up Rigney's critically acclaimed 1998 solo album, Chasing the Devil. Since then they have released eight CDs of new material, including a live CD and DVD video recorded at the beautiful Throckmorton Theatre, in Mill Valley, CA. And, along the way, Rigney has released two Blues violin albums (one of which--2009's Back Porch Blues--climbed all the way to Number 1 on the XM/Sirius Satellite Radio's Bluesville Chart, B.B. King's Top 15 Blues Picks to Click) and an all Swing album (2010's Swing State) that have garnered buckets of airplay and rave rewiews from critics and fans alike. 2009 also saw the release of the rockin', rootsy Americana CD Serious Fun, that caused outbreaks of dance frenzy all over the U.S.A.

Chimera Duo is an english horn and harp duo formed in 2012 with the intent to perform small intimate chamber music concerts reminiscent of nineteenth century salons. Choosing two of the softest, most delicate orchestral instruments, the duo is uniquely suited for this purpose. Whimsical, romantic and atmospheric works shape the ensemble's repertoire.

Lindsay Edwards is the acting Principal English Horn in the Hawaii Symphony. She also holds the english horn chair with the Boise Philharmonic and is Principal Oboe of the Boise Baroque Orchestra and the Opera Idaho Orchestra. She has traveled the world extensively as a member of The World Orchestra. In her free time Lindsay enjoys playing with her pekingese named Wolfgang.

Matthew is the Principal Harpist with the Boise Philharmonic and Opera Idaho and is a permanent substitute harpist with the Utah Symphony, Grand Teton Music Festival, Seattle Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and Anchorage Symphony. Matthew has previously served as Acting Principal Harpist with the Utah Symphony/Utah Opera for the 2013/2014 season. He is a graduate of Manhattan School of Music and Juilliard's Pre College.
