Anne Weiss, Ellen Whyte and Jean Pierre Garau
Anne Weiss is a blues, folk, and roots music singer/songwriter, guitarist and pianist with five albums to her credit. She studied classical piano, joined a street gang, became a mountaineer, developed a guitar obsession, worked as a political organizer, learned to salsa dance, became addicted to delta blues, sang with a 100 voice gospel choir, and yes, you will hear it all in her music.

"In a city like Portland that is filled with outstanding musicians of numerous genres, Anne Weiss stands tall when it comes to talent and songwriting. Her original blues are a standout. A tremendous vocalist, she is also a multi-instrumentalist who may take on a song behind a guitar, blues ukulele or piano at any given moment. And she is more than exceptional at all."
-- Cascade Blues Association

Ellen Whyte is known for her astonishing vocals, as she gracefully moves among genres from blues to jazz to funk and ballads. Her percussive rhythm guitar work is well suited to her voice. Shes won numerous awards for her work, including two Grammy Award nominations in 1999 and most recently in 2009 for Four Way Stop.

"Ellens a class act. Over the years shes turned in some of the strongest sets weve seen on our stages. It was great to have her back in the lineup this year.
--Peter Dammann, Talent Coordinator, Waterfront Blues Festival

Jean Pierre Garau says, "I was humming and drumming along to music, in the air and in my head, since before I can possibly remember. I started taking piano lessons at six and composed my first piece, a surf tune in Cm shortly thereafter. Like my musician friend, Sue Orfield stated in her profile, we didn't become musicians - we were just made this way."
