Anita Bear Sandwina is a multi-instrumentalist Nor-Cal transplant. Her earthy, rootsy style comes from childhood winters on plains of Iowa. She plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, and fiddle for the Musers. Her award-winning songs make us laugh, and invite us to discover our own inner landscape. It is an absolute delight to witness her performances. They are high energy, heartfelt and, punctuated by her dancing feet and childlike wonder. Many an observer has said she is a “compelling force of nature” on stage. She has spent many years honing her craft in bands, most recently with Spark & Whisper. Anita has appeared on many stages throughout Northern California including, The Freight and Salvage, Kate Wolf, American river, and the Redwood Ramble and most recently at the Rivertown Revival with Spark & Whisper.



Megan McLaughlin

Mandolin, guitar, and electric guitar



Megan McLaughlin is an innovative guitar player and song poet from Sebastopol, California. She is known for her clear, powerful voice, and her high-energy performance. At home in many genres, her music ranges from funky, groove-oriented rock to poignant ballads. It’s a range that sets her apart from most other singer-songwriters. The same energetic personality that held the attention of her five-year-old Kindergarten students captivates audiences in Northern California, where she has been awarded Best Performer from West Coast Songwriter and has won Best Song at every Bay Area Chapter in 2017. She has recently appeared in the Point Richmond Acoustic Series, Freight and Salvage, Auburn House Concert, Strings Acoustic Music, Loft Concert Series, Cloverdale Ales, Capp Heritage Napa, and Fairfax Irish Festival.



Quotes:

"Megan is one of my favorite songwriters. She is insightful as well as passionate. The natural energy she brings to her work knocks me out every time.”- Joyce Woodson, Songwriter, San Juan Capistrano



“Megan writes, sings, and plays guitar like Joni Mitchell and David Crosby’s love child. She lights up the stage.” Bob Hahn, The Loft Concert Series, Berkeley



Tom Kuhn

Stand-up Bass



Tom Kuhn has a wide musical background ranging from the first-chair trumpet in the 4th-grade, to marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in High School. He also dabbled in piano and tuba during his younger years. After several hours of research as an adult, he now realizes the fewer strings the better. And since ukulele players are everywhere, he now makes his musical home on the bottom, playing The Musers rhythms and roots on double-bass. Tom has called Sebastopol home for the last 20 years. He has previously played with a number of local folk, bluegrass, and Americana bands, including The Keepers, The Moonshiners, Wildflower and Late Harvest.
