Dean Magraw

Dean Magraw is some kind of awesome on the guitar, not just technically, but spiritually. Dean defies labels and limites - musically & spiritually - with one review saying, quite accurately that Dean is a Jazz cat, a folkie, a rock star, a front-porch bluegrass picker, a bluesman, ... and more. He's located in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, but the universe is his oyster.

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:

Buddhist, Catholic, Congregational, Quaker, Transcendendal Meditation

One Shining, Commercially Successful, Folkie

David Barrett

It's rather seldom that a predominantly folk-oriented musician can be a commercial success, but such a one is David Barrett. Of course, it helps if you write a song like One Shining Moment that gets adopted by the NCAA as their anthem. But that is such a tiny scratch on the surface of David's creativity & artistry.

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:

Congregational, Episcopalian

Country Flow

Fizz Kizer
Fizz Kizer

Time for some country-rooted music today with Fizz Kizer. Actually, he's been told that he's "too country for the cafes and too folkie for the taverns". When playing with his trio, they're called Fizz & the Farm Hands. His music sings of country things, like the rivers and the taverns and the hearts that grow deep away from the cities.

Calling Angels

Judy Kass
Judy Kass

Judy Kass took a long hiatus from sharing her music with the world, but was reignited in her zeal to share by the loss of almost 300 colleagues on 9/11. Judy's music draws on a deep exploration of our human condition, to find ways to call in angels to assist us.

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:

Buddhism, Non-affiliated, Unitarian Universalist
