JAMES VON LENZ:
 
Whether performing as a solo artist or as a principal singer-songwriter in the much-loved Baltimore bands Ursula and Voodoo Pharmacology, James Von Lenz combines old, creepy Appalachian music, off kilter honky-tonk, murder ballads, yodeling, and down-and-out blues stomps. He claims his songs “have been filtered through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal, which imparts a distinct smoothness to the music.”

GEOFFREY HIMES:

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, American Songwriter, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Si Kahn, Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Howard Markman, Ken Kolodner, Tony Denikos, Alan MacEwan, Josh Charles, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. He hosts the monthly Roots Café Singer-Songwriter Series at An Die Musik and the annual Night of 1000 Dylans and Streets of Baltimore shows.

WILLEM ELSEVIER
 
Willem Elsevier was the longtime violinist for one of Baltimore’s biggest rock bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s: Love Riot. Elsevier put the fiddle aside for a while to become an architect and start a family, but he has recently returned to the stage, playing his folk-jazz violin and viola in a duo with Geoffrey Himes. He also plays occasionally with Milkshake, Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus, Mary Battiata and the Johns Hopkins Chamber Orchestra.

AN DIE MUSIK:

An Die Musik is Baltimore’s finest listening room. With 84 armchairs, great acoustics, the city’s best piano and a lobby bar, this performance space above the venerable record store is as intimate as it is inviting. The street parking meters are free on Sundays; the venue offers discount coupons for the area’s ethnic restaurants, and the 5 pm start time keeps the afternoon free while allowing a good night's sleep before the work week. Here, at last, is a music experience designed for adults.
