      EDESSA
      Together more than a decade, Edessa performs folk dance music of Macedonia,
      Bulgaria, Albania and Greece, some of it from the band's debut CD, "Edessa &
      Friends." Edessa (named after a town in northern Greece) calls its style
      "Balkan without borders...music from an area that has been a cultural
      crossroads for centuries." The ensemble features Dan Auvil (tupan, doumbek,
      defi), George Chittenden (clarinet, saxophone, guitar), Ari Langer (violin)
      and Lise Liepman (accordion, santouri, kanun, tambourine).

      BRASS MENAGERIE
      In the realm of Balkan music, Brass Menagerie is the Bay Area's leading
      Balkan brass band, purveying horns-out-front, high-energy, sometimes
      stretchy, very danceable music of Serbia, Greece, and Macedonia. The nine
      musicians have been together over two years, although most have played in
      other Balkan bands far longer. Their experience brings a mature and
      authentic sound to Brass Menagerie. The band is: Peter Jaques (clarinet,
      sax, trumpet), Eric Oberthaler (trumpet), Mary Farris (clarinet, sax), Larry
      Leight (trombone), Randy Trigg (accordion, baritone), Rachel MacFarlane
      (vocals, baritone), Jeff Garaventa (sousaphone), Michele Simon (tapan), Tom
      Farris (various percussion)
