no surprise that Charlie Provenza turned out to be a great mandolin player.

Provenza is one of the bright stars of
the mandolin world in my opinion - Mandolin
a dedicated mandolin instructor at Swallow Hill for years; a
leader of the Denver Mandolin Orchestra; and a hard working
performing musician with Gypsy Mandolin - I am always amazed
at his enthusiasm to explore new territory with the
mandolin. When I lived in Chicago, I felt so lucky to
be surrounded by mandolin players who had taken lessons from
Jethro Burns. I also got to take a few from the great
Don Stiernberg. Luck has followed me in my move to
Colorado, because I have one of the greatest mandolin
teacher/players right here in Denver. -

also touring back with the reformed Subdudes.
Celebrated guitarist and bass
player Rich Moore has just released his first solo
recording, "Steady State". Moore is well-known and
in Colorado's acoustic music family and has lived and
performed here for over 25 years.
I was introduced to Rich as a great bass player.
I've come to know him as a great fingerpickin' guitar player
and a really entertaining sideman, who not only knows how to
play the right thing at the right times, but says the
darndest things at the right times that'll have you laughing
out of your seat. Now with his CD release, I've
discovered he's a slide player, too!
is a smart and stylish recording...that sounds way too good
to be an independent release. This collection features
wonderfully melodic songs...intelligent lyrics, and two
distinctive vocalists that harmonize extremely well
together....A thoroughly enjoyable and engaging recording.

Winstons sing throughout my CD, Soul's
Engines. They recently showed up at a show and
sang on a song and it was a truly wonderful
experience. It's hard to imagine the songs on the CD
without them, and now as I perform them live, it's hard to NOT
hear them with me...
own music and live performances speaks volumes -
engaging songwriting, melodic arrangements and mesmerizing
