This show is a benefit event for Music for Democracy.
Music for Democracy is a national organization raising funds for BE THE CHANGE -- a Get Out the Vote Program to help us win in November and build a progressive America.
Stevie is master finger-style guitarist who has embarked on a successful career as a solo performer after having been the former rhythm, fingerstyle and lap steel guitarist / vocalist with and co-founder of The Waybacks. Co-conspirators over the years have included Roy Zimmerman, The Foremen. the Back Room Boys, The Frontmen, Bob Weir, Michelle Shocked and the Sirens of San Francisco. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his own solo CD and tours nationally and internationally.
Fingerstyle guitar wizard Walter Strauss is a one man guitar festival. His virtuosity mesmerizes, whether in a song about the vast American West or an ambitious guitar translation of music from far-flung locales. While
rooted in American folk forms, Walter’s music evokes far reaches of the globe as well. He’s worked with musicians from West Africa to Australia and Finland, and successfully weaves world beat, Americana, and jazz into a brand uniquely his own. An innovative guitarist, singer-songwriter and producer, Walter released his debut solo CD in 2005 and currently tours nationally and internationally in solo and collaborative performances.
