Cheetah Conservation Fund is the world's leading organization dedicated to saving the cheetah in the wild. Founded by Dr. Laurie Marker in 1990, CCF has created a set of integrated programs aimed at addressing the principle threats to the cheetah.
Stevie Coyle: Fingerstyle guitarist, singer, songwriter formerly of The Waybacks previously hit the road for 3 years with The Royal Lichtenstein Circus, doing comedy, magic, wire-walking, sword-swallowing, unicycling, juggling & rola-bola and working with dogs, cats, birds, bears, monkeys, horses and even house-cats. He and Roy Zimmerman have worked closely in several collaborations over the past 25 years, including folk tribute / parody band The Foremen.
Carol McComb & Kathleen Larisch: Kathy & Carol's unique sense of harmony is remarkable for its use of shifting intervals, haunting dissonances, counterpoint, and unisons. Their a cappella songs send shivers down the spine. Carol's original songs have timeless appeal. Their renditions of Carter Family songs are unique, yet they have a ring of authenticity b ecause Kathy & Carol have deep roots in traditional American and British Isles music. Roots music is in their bones.
Shamrocks & Poison Oak : Dave McCort, Jerry McMillan, Michael Simpson and Lee Anne Welch, of Sidesaddle - Friends since high school each member has been playing all their adult lives in diverse styles and now they are joining together to celebrate their love of Celtic music with fiddles, guitar, mandolin and Irish pipes for the Play It Fast for Cheetahs concert.
Shelley Phillips & Michael Glick: Shelley has a Masters of Music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Shelley Phillips (folk harp, oboe and cor anglé, and native flutes) and her husband Barry (cello) are much in demand as a studio and pick-up musicians for the professional folk music crowd in America, Ireland and the UK. For this special event she is putting together a special ensemble. Michael Glick has an extensive background in both classical keyboard styles and traditional and contemporary keyboard improvisation.
