emily metcalf & mandy ryle

Emily Metcalf is a galaxy warrior by profession who fully intends to live for 1000 years. She plays banjo and sings with many other crazy birds and bees flyin' in, out and around her head. Emily loves folksy, bluesy, beautiful, rough and raunchy, tangled and twisted, but most of all soulful music. She enjoys nice beer, mountain top views, the ocean, animals of all varieties, berries, and juicy red beets. 

Mandy Ryle has been singing since she first drew breath. Her parents will often tell stories of her breaking into song, running around the house singing "I am an opera!'. Mandy has been performing in shows with Olympia Family Theater since its birth in 2006. She is currently an Evergreen student that wishes college was free. Mandy likes wool socks, hot coffee, yoga, painting, laughing uncontrollably, and most of all spending time with her friends and family. She wishes that her piano was a portable instrument and that one day she will travel the world.

Maggie and Ruby Neatherlin
Fiddlie-I-Ay is a family stringband from Olympia, Washington.  Sisters Maggie and Ruby Neatherlin anchor the band on fiddle and mandolin.  They are backed up on banjo, ukulele, guitar by their parents Erik Neatherlin and Emily Teachout and an occasional friend or two. They play rolicking old time fiddle tunes, vintage songs, and mountain ballads with the aim of making you smile, and maybe even dance, to their lively old timey tunes!  They were recently featured on a compilation album of kid-oriented music called PB & Jam with their mentor Professor Banjo and are often seen busking around town or playing for square dances and parties.

Erev Rav
   Erev Rav translates from Hebrew as  ‘Mixed Multitude’.  This multi-ethnic group of rabble rousers joined Moses and the Israelites on the 40 year journey from Egypt to spiritual liberation.   Similarly, without cultural mandate, Erev Rav chooses klezmer as a vehicle for musical expression.  Klezmer provides every player in Erev Rav with a soulful musical tradition to study, celebrate, and source for their own compositions.

Kol N'Shama
Kol N’Shama, or “Voices of the Soul,” is the choir at Temple Beth Hatfiloh, a Reconstructionist congregation in Olympia, Washington.  Since 2004, the choir has sung monthly at Shabbat services and annually at High Holidays in the synagogue.  Kol N'Shama has also sung at public concerts, inter-faith events, the World Sacred Music Festival, and now at Kitzel's!  Music and song are integral parts of Jewish worship; the choir augments the creation of sacred space and encourages congregational participation.  Kol N’Shama sings traditional and contemporary Jewish music in Hebrew, Arameic, Yiddish, Ladino, and English.  For Artswalk and Earth Day, they will share a sample of their repertoire at Kitzel's, celebrating life, the earth, creation, and song.

Dennis Bergman Broom's sprawling topical catalog of original songs have been called " turns satirical, funny and acerbic, then somber and evocative... but ultimately all very universal."

"He performs on a soft or crisp electric guitar and piano and sometimes baritone ukulele. Vignettes cover beard growth, lotto addiction,  Ponce De Leon's midlife crisis, and of course, William Howard Taft.  Other paintings include love letters found in a desk drawer, candy-bar theft, insect politics and even studious, overeating prehistoric beasts: colorful, wit-drenched lyrics that travel all over the literary map." 

Mr. Broom, a native New Yorker, has opened and performed in shows with Graham Nash, Rick Danko (The Band), Suzanne Vega, Gilberto Gil, Baby Gramps and The Roches. He also made regular appearances as a mere nubile at the legendary Speakeasy in New York City's West Village during its salad days.
