THE BROTHERS REED
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Despite their brotherhood, Aaron and Phil Reed didn’t start playing music together until two years ago after Phil left their hometown of St. Charles, Missouri to join Aaron in the unsullied mountains of the American Northwest. The brothers' family blend of folk encapsulates the grit and humor of Midwest life with the swagger and serenity of the west coast. Their style evokes finger picking folk singers of the 60’s and 70’s with a contemporary and boundless edge. Cultivated from years of performing in bands ranging from heavy metal to reggae and rock, to punk, country, and funk, their musical dichotomy is at the root of their diverse yet seamless folk-brand.
With their comedic brotherly banter, impeccable harmonic expression, and widely varying influences, a Brothers Reed performance will have you reflecting on lost lives and lovers, laughing hysterically and leaving completely entertained.

Jeremy James Meyer is a renaissance man, a builder, and a seeker. Born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon; he would attend folk music and dance camps up and down the West coast. Steeped in sea shanties, and old-time, ballads and ragtime, he developed a taste for the folk arts. As an aspiring songwriter, making the transition was natural when he set down the violin, at age 14, to pick up the guitar. By his early twenties, he had begun taking on a more calculated approach to songwriting; and, as young folk are wont, when equipped with tools, instruments and a mind keen to roam, he hit the road. Traveling throughout the Western and Southern states.
The road is never straight, and in some cases, barely paved. Through the ups and downs, Jeremy has been finding clarity in his voice. As a writer, he seeks out feeling and sensation in a song. To dwell in its matter, and absorb and regurgitate the most rudimentary and personal aspects. As a guitar player, he has honed his style into a well blended caricature of Americana, pulling influences from country, ragtime, blues and folk to soul, hip-hop, and rock n' roll.
12:45 pm - 2:00 pm
Allen Giardinelli has been playing music for 3 decades throughout 35 countries.

Al began performing at a young age, both in the recording studio and on stage, and by the time he was in his early teens he'd acquired a proficiency in multiple musical genres, playing music full time and also touring with several rock and blues bands.
Al discovered and developed a consuming interest in gypsy jazz, particularly the music of Django Reinhardt. Today Al has melded this interest with his lifelong love of Mississippi Delta blues to develop a unique style of his own, tinged with rock and Americana influences. He is an accomplished songwriter, arranger, and composer producing albums for his fellow musicians at Cymatic Sound Studios in Bandon, Oregon, where he can also be found performing in spare moments at Angelo's Italy.
