Sonya Cotton
NPR – Featured on The World Cafe Next 20 list: “The arresting music that accompanies her words evokes her reverence for life and beauty‚Ķ”

Kelly McFarling
SF Gate: “Kelly McFarling plucks her banjo and sings sweet songs that taste like a chocolate milkshake. Instead of a cherry there are two Ritalin floating on a bed of whipped cream that will transport you to a lake of sound, even if a jack hammer is cracking the cement outside your bedroom window.”

Mana Maddy
Multi-instrumentalist and songstress Madeline Streicek (“Mana Maddy”) was born to an opera singer mother and gold miner father in the bustling Northern BC logging town of Quesnel. She completed an Architecture degree in Sydney Australia and has been an Oakland, CA local since 2006, first as the lead singer of progressive rock band Antioquia, then as backup singer & keyboardist of folk/blues band Whiskerman. She is now out on her own, performing as “Mana Maddy” in a solo setting on ukulele, piano and guitar.

Rebecca Cross
Singer-songwriter Rebecca Cross will be premiering an excerpt from a developing work that is synchronized and tuned to the natural percussion and melody found in the wilderness of Northern California. The piece incorporates falling drops of water in a 400,000 year old cave, the call of a western screech owl, coyotes and other musicians native to the area.
