 Yeshe Matthews

Grace is power.  It is the power to be who you truly are, which is a spark of light in the web of light that underpins all existence. Some might say that grace is a gift from the divine. In fact, grace IS divinity itself, in living, breathing form. You. -Yeshe Matthews

First and foremost you’ll be struck by Amy’s crystalline voice which “will hook even the most hardened cynic.” (Performing Songwriter Magazine) She’s a California native. Raised in San Diego and now based in San Francisco, you can hear the sound of the wind and ocean in her music. She’s toured the U.S. and France and got her song “Carousel” into the TV Show, Grey’s Anatomy.

5:15pm  Feisty Females!

Kym Trippsmith & Jenn Rogar

Kym sings stories alive filled with political satire, unvarnished truths, mystical clarity, family honesty and humor in a folk/blues/radical rock style with rich vocals and accompanied on bass by Congo Pense and percussion by Rama.

Jenn is a rabblerouser, a folksinger, and a singer/songwriter in the tradition of Holly Near and Joan Baez, using her music as a tool to educate and incite pacifism and activism and awareness. Her music also invites sentimentality along the lines of Kate Wolf and Janis Ian.
