THE BUSKERS

Fondtones

The Buskers
Paul Hubert, Craig Jaster, Kathy KZ Sommer

"The inventiveness of jazz,
the simplicity and directness of folk music,
And the energy of a roots rock house party."

With a kitchen sink of instruments and a repertoire of influences from jug band and jazz to roots rock, The Buskers tap the street music tradition for which they are named, then go far beyond, with serious musicianship, a sense of humor, and energy to burn.

Refreshingly original songwriters and seasoned, engaging performers, The Buskers have befriended audiences at opera houses and folk festivals, house concerts, bandstands, cafes and farmers' markets across New England since 1993. The trio deftly and joyfully weaves violin, mandolin, guitar, accordion, bass, keyboard, banjo, harmonica and tambourine into their arrangements and somehow fitting all their instruments comfortably onstage in even the smallest venue and sometimes they will include a drummer. Their influences range equally as wide as their instrumentation, but their sound is always defined by a shared respect for the crafts of songwriting and arranging and their shared love of the inventive possibilities of improvisation.

SFERES & WHITE

Jimmy Sferes and Jennifer White have discovered an uncommon synergy, blending clear and luscious harmonies with complex and imaginative guitar playing. Their fun and engaging live performances feature an eclectic and soulful combination of blues, roots and rock. Their song "Small Stuff" won an Honor Award in the Great American Song Contest, and they have appeared on Garrison Keillor’s "Prairie Home Companion" radio program as well as the Hallmark Channel's New Morning TV show. Derek Blackmon from Indie-Music.com says that Sferes & White have, "vocal harmonies that work so well together it sounds almost too good to be true." There latest collaborative project was to produce the closing song and instrumental soundtrack for the soon to be released modern western "Out of the Wild."

White grew up in a musical family but was a relative late bloomer to the professional music scene. Her first studio effort for the Narrow Gauge Band was produced by Doug Haywood (bass player and background vocalist for Jackson Browne); she has also performed in acapella groups and country rock bands. Sferes played his first guitar at thirteen and during his diverse music and recording career has opened for the likes of David Wilcox, Delbert McClinton, Blues Traveler, Larry Coryell, Richard Elliott, and America.
