Christopher Davis Shannon Trio (Blues/Jazz)

Christopher Davis-Shannon’s music is the essence of honest simplicity.  Bringing together influences ranging from Fats Waller to Muddy Waters he creates an atmosphere that will instantly transport you back to jazz and blues clubs of the early 20th century. Not content with being called a traditionalist he forges ahead with his own modern take on timeless classics, weaving together a sound that is enjoyed by both young and old. Davis-Shannon performs a mix of blues and jazz standards, spirituals and his own originals which are steeped in the age old styles he holds close to his heart. His intricate guitar work and plaintive vocals are infused with soulfulness which cannot be faked, and a respect for his predecessors which is rarely equaled.

Cristian Perez (South American Fusion)

Defying all musical labels, Argentine guitarist/composer Cristian Perez weaves together genres from throughout the world to reveal the universality of music. With a strong foundation in classical, jazz and South American music, he crafts a singular voice, rich in sensitivity and nuance, that freely explores the possibilities of music as an art form. Cristian has shaped his original compositions and arrangements fusing his folk music roots with an exploration in other worldly cultures, such as India and Japan. Cristian’s guitar is joined by flute and upright bass to form a hybrid ensemble – equal parts jazz combo, chamber ensemble and world music band. Learn more about the artist here.
