Tuba Skinny

Tuba Skinny

Formed in in 2009, Tuba Skinny has steadily evolved from a loose collection of street musicians into a solid ensemble dedicated to bringing the traditional New Orleans sound to audiences around the world. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences—from spirituals to Depression-era blues, from ragtime to traditional jazz—their sound evokes the rich musical heritage of their New Orleans home. The band has gained a loyal following through their distinctive sound, their commitment to reviving long-lost songs, and their barnstorming live performances.


Giri and Uma Peters

Giri and Uma Peters

Somewhere at the intersection of old-time music, bluegrass, and Piedmont Blues, is the unique and amazing sound of acoustic musicians, Giri (age 15) and Uma Peters (age 12). These Indian-American siblings from Nashville, TN are award-winning multi-instrumentalists - Giri on fiddle, guitar, and mandolin, and Uma on clawhammer and gourd banjo. They have been electrifying audiences with their refreshing, soulful blend of music and songwriting. Although young in age, their musicianship and vocal harmonies showcase a level of creativity and originality well beyond their years. Their first album together, entitled Origins, released May 31, 2019. Giri and Uma have performed at festivals around country. 

“The new heart, face, and soul of old-time music is Giri and Uma Peters!”
— Abigail Washburn
