Pine Mountain Music festival is proud to present this year's UPstarts! This year we have Eric Banitt, piano; Benjamin Merte, bass; Kalee Hernendez, piano; Karen Albert, mezzo-soprano; and Benjamin Zindler, trombone.

 "Jefferson Hamer will astound you with his own songs and his sensitivity in guitar accompaniment.  I had to pull off to the side of the road when I heard his Child Ballad record on the radio.

 Moira Smiley is nothing short of remarkable, both as a solo performer and as a choral leader of original material.  We are delighted she is joining our lineup in June!
