Waterbug recording artist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, violin, viola, banjo, accordion - but mostly guitar in performance), member of the Tin Pan Caravan. My attempt to present a concert with Rachel last year didn't work out when the tour didn't come together. This time she's joined by Ariel Bolles on harmony vocals and standup bass, for her songs that match poetic, literate lyrics with soaring melodies inspired by musical styles of the '20s and '30s.

Opening the show is Ashley Mayne, a very impressive young singer with a repertoire of out-of-the-ordinary versions of traditional songs, covers of great songs by contemporary writers, and a few interesting originals that show great potential for this nascent songwriter.
