A David Gans "solo electric" performance is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match - it's never the same show twice, but it's always worth a listen.
Anela Lauren began classical piano lessons at the age of 4. In college, she expanded into jazz and in 1998 to the celtic harp. Anela has been playing professionally since 2001 on the island of Kaua’i. In May of 2013, Anela moved to Taos, New Mexico. This summer, she released her second CD, “Harpin’ on the Dead,” celebrating her love of the Grateful Dead. Anela’s repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary, traditional and Celtic with an emphasis on Hawaiian music, which lends itself beautifully to the harp.
