Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist Dmitri has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music).
Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”

Forest Beutel, the Freeborn Man: a boot-stompin’ Americana Blues One-man band
Slinging banjo, guitar, harmonica, kick-drum, and a high-hat, Beutel builds a twangy upbeat atmosphere that engages a crowd and gets folks on their feet. A modern-day ramblin man, Beutel’s voice blends the high lonesome sounds of Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt with gruff baritone vibrations akin to Tom Waits and Johnny Cash.
Forest began his journey as a professional musician in Rhode Island over a decade ago, drumming in nationally touring bands. After moving across the country to Tacoma, Washington, Forest picked up the banjo and became a regional favorite as the front-man of several bluegrass bands including Barleywine Revue and the Rusty Cleavers.
Forest has been an active one-man band for over five years, with three solo albums leaving listeners awestruck at the meeting of dynamic lyricism and raw musicianship.
