October 17 - Dean Magraw & Eric Kamau Gravatt
The dynamic partnership forged between Dean Magraw and Eric Kamau Gravatt, was captured in the studio for a jazz fusion album. The album is stripped down to the essence of a mere drum set and solo guitar. The two virtuosos create soundscapes of rhythm, melody and dimension, with every performance a dazzling reminder their incredible feel and talent. Magraw is a guitarist who has performed with some of music's most iconic players from jazz legend Jack McDuff to the renowned Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Magraw’s eclectic mix of musical influences can be heard in his more than a dozen albums. Gravatt, a master jazz drummer out of the fusion and post-bop traditions, was the drummer with the legendary band Weather Report. In the mid-1970s he moved to the Twin Cities and joined the nationally acclaimed quartet, Natural Life. After a hiatus from the stage, Gravatt has resumed performing, most frequently with his band Source Code. Buy Dean's album How the Light Gets In


November 21 - Ray Bonneville
Ray Bonneville is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player. A self-described “song and groove man,” he brings the rhythms of The Big Easy to his swampy, percussive blues. Bonneville has performed with such blues luminaries as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, and Robert Cray, and since moving to Texas he has quickly become a go-to session player and fixture on the Americana scene. His Red House release Goin' By Feel was named one of the best CDs of 2008 by DownBeat Magazine, and featured the Americana hit "I Am the Big Easy," which was the most played song on folk radio that year, and won the Folk Alliance Award for Song of the Year.
