The Faultliners perform Traditional Bluegrass Music played in an original style by some of the most respected “side persons” in the business. The band formed at a session in Point Reyes Station, California where the San Andreas Fault meets the sea. Its members are Avram Siegel (banjo/vocals), Sharon Gilchrist (mandolin/vocals), Paul Knight (bass/vocals), Keith Little (guitar/vocals) and Blaine Sprouse (fiddle/vocals).
Rainy Eyes is a duo with Irena Eide on vocals and guitar, and Amy Scher providing fiddle and harmonies. Eide is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Bergen, Norway, whose songs carry elements of folk, bluegrass, Americana, rock, country and soul. Paired with Bay Area bluegrass fiddler/singer Amy Scher, their voices blend beautifully and create a soulful, heartfelt and timeless sound with tight knit harmonies and thoughtful songwriting.
