Vietnamese guitarist Tinh plays live in the Echoes living room.
Originally a classical player, Tinh was converted to the steel-string side when the legendary John Fahey produced his debut album MY VIETNAMESE SUITE (East Wind Records). His new CD, ACOUSTIC RAIN (East Wind), was produced by another legendary music figure, pianist George Winston. Although he was born in Vietnam and as a child fled the country days before the fall of Saigon. Tinh has developed a style of acoustic guitar playing that speaks more of Americana than Asia. Tinh travels from his home in Oregon to play in the Echoes living room.

From bluegrass to the avant-garde, Windham Hill to Slowbaby Records, New Age diva to feminist minstrel, pianist Barbara Higbie has charted a singular course through modern music. The pianist and fiddler came to early renown on the Windham Hill label, recording the influential Tideline CD with then-husband, fiddler Darol Anger. That led to the formation of Montreux, a heady acoustic fusion of jazz, bluegrass and chamber music that included bassist Michael Manring and mandolinist Mike Marshall. Higbie veered off into the world of feminist music, touring and recording with Theresa Trull, among others. Now, Higbie is focusing on solo piano for the first time, with the release of VARIATIONS ON A HAPPY ENDING (Slowbaby). In her East Bay home, Higbie takes us into a music that can bring Charlie Brown and Terry Riley together.

Nicholas Gunn makes his living from the land. He's not a farmer. He's a flute player who has been crafting compositions inspired by the natural wonders of America. It began in 1991 with his album, AFTERNOON IN SEDONA and continues through MUSIC OF THE GRAND CANYON and his latest, THROUGH THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS (Gemini Sun Records). Gunn's music isn't chirping crickets and babbling brooks. ALong with his flute he uses dynamic African percussion and synthesizers to create his environmentally friendly music. He talks about it on Echoes.
