Keystone Crossing is a duo from Marin County that features just two guitars and two voices. Larry Carlin has been playing bass in country and bluegrass bands for the past 30 years, and Claudia Hampe sang harmony for many years in folk and country bands. Their angelic harmonies hearken back to the early days of country and bluegrass music, as they sing songs of the famous brother duos of that era The Delmore, Louvin, and Everly Brothers.

The Courtney Janes are a duo from Marin County that believe music should always be played from the heart. Dennis Haneda has been strumming and singing his songs around the San Francisco Bay Area for all of his life. Ben Hulan describes himself as a "Virginian songwriter in California." Both Ben and Dennis have played and recorded in various groups over the years, ranging from folk and bluegrass to rock n' roll. Grounded in acoustic folk and colored with the electric guitar and mandolin, The Courtney Janes have an exciting sound all their own.
