A central figure in the women’s music movement of the 1970s and 80s, Linda Tillery was also a founding member of Bobby McFerrin’s vocal ensemble Voicestra.  She leads the Cultural Heritage Choir, performing African American roots music.

Evie Ladin is a banjo player, step-dancer, singer, and songwriter. A vital member of the Stairwell Sisters, Keith Terry & Crosspulse, and the Evie Ladin Band, she’s won acclaim for her singing, songwriting, and performing.

Richmond native Ray Obiedo is a jazz and R&B guitarist.  He’s recorded with Herbie Hancock, Julian Priester, and Sheila E, and led the groups Kick and Rhythmus 21.

Barbara Higbie is a master of piano and fiddle who composes beautiful music and sings like a dream.

David Belove is a monster bass player who plays with the Wayne Wallace Quintet and the Oakland Interfaith Choir and has worked with Tito Puente, Pete and Sheila Escovedo, Dizzy Gillespie, and Pat Metheny.

Deszon Claiborne is the dynamic drummer for Clockwork and the Tammy Hall Trio.

The San Francisco Chronicle profiled pianist Tammy Hall in an article titled “The Soul of Jazz Piano”—“with an uncluttered, telegraphic style marked by her classical training and deep roots in the Baptist church, she gracefully combines elegance and grit.”

Emmy-winning clown Unique Derique is internationally known for his circus skills, hilarious physical comedy, and mastery of the style of body drumming popularly known as hambone.
