Chris Webster's voice has those ineffable qualities of vocal grain, emotional nuance, phrasing, and warmth which characterize truly great and moving singers in any style. She covers a wide range of material, including her own as a songwriter, accompanied by the fabulous guitar work of Nina Gerber. She also still fronts the ever popular Sacramento party band, Mumbo Gumbo (for over 20 years!), and occasionally teams up with her classical soprano sister, Cassie, as The Webster Sisters, performing traditional folk. http://www.chriswebstermusic.com

"…each note she sings conveys a probing, acute, sensitivity to the little complications in life and love, with a sexy edge to boot" - No Depression Magazine

After originally coming to prominence as accompanist and close musical companion to Kate Wolf, Nina Gerber spent two decades as "guitarist of choice" for recordings and performances with a huge number of folk performers, as well becoming a respected producer and arranger, earning a devoted following. She always emphasizes taste over technical skill (which she has in abundance), providing a soulful enhancement to the music she is accompanying (Karla Bonhoff, Peter Rowan, Eliza Gilkyson, Greg Brown, Laurie Lewis…). Finally, after appearing on, or producing, over 60 albums, she has in the last few years started releasing her own solo CDs, both live performance and studio. http://www.ninagerber.com

"One of the best acoustic and electric guitarists in the folk genre.".:… Frets Magazine
