Doug Brown (guitar) and Susan Hofer (vocals)

Composer, performer and multi-instrumentalist Doug Brown has appeared at major music festivals in North America and Europe including the Cork Jazz Festival (Ireland), the Zelt Musik Festival (Germany), the Winnipeg Folk Music Festival (Canada) and the Festival of American Music at the Barbican Centre in London, England.  He has performed with Barbara K and Pat MacDonald of Timbuk 3, "string-swing" group Harmonious Wail.

Susan Hofer has been exciting audiences for the past 10 years. Beginning as a classical clarinetist, she developed a deep appreciation for traditional jazz vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and contemporary singers like Diane Reeves and Kurt Elling. Combine this with her keen interest in outside-the-box creative improvised music, throw in her study of ethnomusicology, put it all in the blender to commingle and you have a style all her own.
