John LatiniSINGER/SONGWRITER
John Latini
John Latini is a musical chameleon. Whether he’s singing an old standard from the jazz era of the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, belting out the blues, or quoting from the classic rock repertoire, his voice and music transforms with the song, carrying audiences away with him. Latini is also an award-winning songwriter, so you’re bound to hear his clever lyrics in one or two of his original tunes. Always upbeat and animated, his magic draws all ages into the show.

Acoustic EidolonINSTRUMENTAL WORLD MUSIC
Acoustic Eidolon
Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire have combined their musical talents to create Acoustic Eidolon's unique sound, incorporating a rich blend of musical influences, including Celtic, folk, world and Latin music. As they perform throughout North America and Europe in prestigious venues such as Washington DC's Kennedy Center, Scott plays an instrument he invented: the double-neck guitjo, a custom acoustic guitar with two necks. This one-of-a-kind instrument has incredible range and tonal qualities, sounding at times like a piano, dulcimer or beautiful harp. Combine that with Hannah Alkire’s stunning tone and impeccable cello-playing, and you have an exciting new acoustic instrumental sound.  In addition, their concerts are peppered with internationally influenced vocal selections.
