Giant Cicada began as an extension of the partnership of the upright bass/vocal duo Jon Burr and Lynn Stein, playing the essence of song and minimalist arrangements. With the addition of violin, guitar, cajon drum, and bowed upright bass, the duo ventured farther down the paths of pop, dance, world, and jazz and
developed a vibrant new sound. Some of these fine people have already performed at WDFH as the Jon Burr Trio and the Lynn Stein Trio.

Nick Russo – guitars

Born at a 2003 Woody Guthrie hootenanny, Hope Machine is named after a Woody quote: “About all a human being is, anyway, is a hoping machine.” Their music is ever-evolving but always carries a message of hope, peace, and freedom. Hope Machine is an “official Program” of the Woody Guthrie
Foundation, and returns to WDFH after a performance earlier this year.
