Thomas Comerford
After moving to Chicago with a bunch of songs and 4-track recordings in 1999, Thomas Comerford founded and led the indie rock outfit Kaspar Hauser over a series of lineups and LP releases in the 2000s. By 2010, he was also playing “solo” shows with a number of backing musicians and releasing his own LPs, including Archive + Spiral in 2011 and II in 2014. The music, songs and singing on these LPs have been compared to the likes of Jeff Tweedy and Tom Waits (USA Today). Recently, he released his third solo LP, Blood Moon. Featuring Comerford’s baritone—and occasional falsetto—in the midst of largely acoustic or gently electric arrangements, 3-part backing vocals and duets, the music on Blood Moon recalls singing songwriters like Van Morrison, Kris Kristofferson and Leonard Cohen. On his June 2019 tour, Comerford will sing and play acoustic guitar, accompanied by Crystal Hartford (Hartford-Focht) on voice; Kip Rainey (Golden Horse Ranch Band) on electric guitar, bass guitar; and Erik Sowa on drum kit and percussion.
A Flor de Piel
A Flor de Piel was founded in April 2007 by author, teacher, musician and entrepreneur Marisol Ceron and Grammy® and Latin Grammy® nominee multi-instrumentalist Renato Ceron. The group fuses traditional music from Latin America with influences from all around the world. The group’s diverse repertoire includes traditional Latin music as well as original compositions. The group has developed different shows for audiences of all ages and backgrounds, including concerts, fandangos (dance parties), children shows for schools and festivals, and music and dance workshops. A Flor de Piel’s music, and diverse repertoire reflects its members’ rich cultural heritage as well as their fresh and creative ways to make the “old” sound “new.” Its multi generational membership as well as their ability to switch from one style of Latin music to another with ease appeals to audiences of all ages and all musical tastes
