Jaeger & Reid

Some of the best discoveries are made by accident. That’s what happened in the fusion of the musical talents of Judi Jaeger and Bob Reid. They unwittingly found perfect harmony while standing next to each other at a music camp in 2015. Their musical spark caught fire and was noticed by those around them; the successful collaboration between Jaeger and Reid was born. They combine Judi’s Canadian background, striking vocals and intelligent songs with Bob’s California upbringing and his own engaging original tunes. Their artful blending of guitars, ukulele and rich harmonies deliver an intimate evening of deeply meaningful music.

Judi grew up near Montreal, Canada, where her world was filled with music; her mother and brother sang and played guitar and she listened to Leonard Cohen, Peter, Paul & Mary, Pete Seeger and many others. She began her career as a performing songwriter as an expression of her loss after the death of her mother and has written songs for her local domestic violence prevention organization. Bob is a fourth generation Californian, and like Judi, Bob also grew up surrounded by music. Bob’s Mom performed in coffeehouses in the 1960’s, while his father was a gospel concert promoter. Bob has been a California Arts Council Artist in the Schools, performed at the United Nations in New York, in concert, at festivals and in schools across the United States. His original songs have been sung by Pete Seeger, Bill Harley, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer and many others. Bob was chosen by the Seeger family to perform at memorial concerts for both Pete and Toshi Seeger in New York. Bob has a keen eye for musicality, empowerment, appreciation of nature and social causes in his writing.

The Quarry Persons

The Quarry Persons have been performing the music of the Beatles for about 8 years. They have filled many venues with Beatle fans, including the Freight & Salvage & the Starry Plough in Berkeley, the Terrace Room in Oakland, and the Kanbar Center for Performing Arts in San Rafael. With a repertoire of nearly 50 classic Beatle songs and a knack for nailing the intricate vocal harmonies and instrumentation of the Fab Four, they should not be missed. The Quarry Persons will present a pre-recorded concert of sing-along Beatles hits and online lyrics for all music so people at home can sing along. Appropriate for all ages.
