Correo Aereo, pronounced Cor-ray-o Eye-air-re-o, (Spanish for 'Air Mail'), is an award winning multi-instrumental and vocal Latin/World music duo. Performing traditional music of Venezuela, Argentina & Mexico, Correo Aereo combines a stunning array of string and percussive instruments with silken vocal harmonies described as “…locked in embrace.” by the Austin Chronicle.
“Correo Aereo is deeply respectful of the traditions they present yet they are not afraid to explore new directions that expand the parameters of their art form. [They] offer superb performance. They are true professionals with exacting standards. They will only put on stage work that they have honed to perfection. Above all, I love to be in their presence when they perform. At times to watch their vivid presence on-stage, at others to listen, with my eyes closed, to the beauty of their sounds.”
We're returning to Perihelion this July for a summer evening to satisfy music nerds who enjoy a good beer, or beer nerds who enjoy good music.

Razz always marches to her own beat. She plays the violin like a guitarist but has never touched a pick. She has performed in front of hundreds of people in massive concert halls and also rocks out to Jimi Hendrix on street corners. She travels the country in a self built solar powered van, exploring big cities and hidden secret towns. What is her secret to being a so-called “fearless” explorer?
Razz’s mix of music and storytelling break down how to overcome fear, start setting up building blocks to create a foundation for change, and how to find allies along the way. Her personal stories about overcoming fear and challenges strike resonating chords with her audience and her ability to use the structure of looping to sonically illustrate her points gives an interactive spin on solving problems using everyday tools and a little improvisation.
Sing, Low, Indigo started as a collaboration between jazz guitarist and songwriter, Glen VanDerPloeg, and vocalist Heidi Matthews. They built a repertoire of original tunes complemented by fresh interpretations of songs from the jazz age to our age. At their shows, you'll hear Glen's songs, which range from moody ballads to philosophical Americana to upbeat, jazzy pop, interspersed with tunes you know from Cole Porter, Nina Simone, the Rolling Stones, Leonard Cohen, and the Black Keys. Not guided by nostalgia or strict adherence to tradition, they work to make music that combines the sophistication of the past with the passion and immediacy that reaches audiences today.

Locally grown Seattle cellist Gretchen Yanover has been attached to her instrument since she began playing at the age of ten in her public school music program. She was immersed in the world of classical music until her college years, when she expanded her range to include playing in bands. Once she was introduced to a loop sampler, Gretchen found a new voice for her instrument. She began to improvise and compose in this context, creating her own instrumental atmospheres and melodies. Gretchen’s music in some ways reflects the blend of her cultural identity—a mix of African American and Russian Jewish descent, while European classical tradition and contemporary styles mix in her cello playing. She has two solo albums to date, and will begin recording her new project in September 2016.

Featuring all acoustic instrumentation -- guitar, violin and upright bass -- the band plays largely uptempo arrangements in a style that combines Dixieland jazz, folk, Celtic and country-western. But while the music evokes days gone by, the lyrical content of the band's selections is timeless, examining the lives of people who never got and perhaps never deserved a break.
