Accomplished, vocalist, composer and arranger Kristina Koller will present music from her debut album ‘Perception’. As one of the most applauded rising stars in jazz, Koller has developed quickly into a highly individual vocalist, melding jazz, funk, R&B and alt-rock sounds into her songs. Kristina arranges tunes in unique ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than recreating the performances of others. The New York native culled her musical chops in the NYC jazz scene, performing at venerable jazz haunts such as Smalls, Smoke, Minton’s, Mezzrow as well as The Apollo Theater. Kristina was a featured Discovery Artist at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival.

Fiery, Agile and passionate, multi-instrumentalist Clarence Ward III’s heartfelt, soulful music stands as an anchor of the Baltimore music scene. The minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, or the playful sincerity of his sax you're frozen, mesmerized, until he's said his piece. Clarence doesn’t just play the notes, he lives them, and you are helpless to avoid the way it vibrates through your chest cavity and breaks you open to the world and it’s complexity. He’s a storyteller, a guardian of jazz music today.

Jeff Rymes’ former quartet The Lonesome Strangers originated in “the roots music explosion that took place in Southern California during the ‘80s” and have been described by AllMusic as “one of California's most influential bands.” Now, 20 years since the Strangers’ last release, Rymes has returned to serious musical pursuits with his solo debut, Even If The Sun Don’t Shine, picking up where he left off with a collection of songs from the highways and byways of life's road trip.

Jeff will play a solo set, and a set backed by The Stone Hill All-Stars.
