At a John Jorgenson Quintet performance, audiences are amazed by John's dazzling guitar work as well as his mastery as a clarinet player and vocalist. Whether playing his own accessible compositions or classic standards, John and his band make music that is equally romantic and ecstatic, played with virtuosity and soul.

Stetson and Cia Cherryholmes

Singer songwriters Stetson Adkisson and Cia Cherryholmes have teamed up to create music in a pure form, uncluttered with electronics or over production. With guitar and banjo as the instrument mainstays, they have created a unique sound that blends raw and soulful with poignant and sincere. As a duo, they have just released their self-titled debut album.

Cia Cherryholmes began playing music at the age of 15 with the internationally acclaimed band Cherryholmes. As their lead singer, banjoist, and prominant songwriter, she garnered 5 Grammy nominations over the band's 12 year career and can be heard as a back up artist on many industry projects.

Peppino D'Agostino

Peppino D’Agostino doesn’t just play the guitar. He composes, arranges, collaborates, improvises and has even been known to sing a song here and there in both English and Italian. But what he does create on the guitar makes the difference between simply playing and truly making music apparent in the most wonderful ways.

D’Agostino has been hailed as “a guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine as well as “a giant of the acoustic guitar” (San Diego Reader), and holds many top guitar awards, but the San Francisco Chronicle encapsulated the essential difference that distinguishes D’Agostino’s music when it dubbed him “a poet.”
