Kate Brubeck, no relation to Dave, is an editor, coach, and writing consultant with a stealth singing practice, with a range including classical music, traditional Irish music, show tunes, jazz standards, folk, Americana, country, and the odd original.

Geoff Van Lienden has been playing the guitar professionally since the 60’s. More recently he has been playing jazz as well as celtic/fusion music with Colm O’Riain. He has studied with teachers as diverse as rock guitarist Joe Satriani and jazz guitarist Brian Pardoe. 

Barbara Brady performs as a singer a cappella jazz with The Merlot Notes, a 10-woman ensemble based in Silicon Valley. She spent many years as a professional cathedral chorister and soloist in Cincinnati, OH, where she also produced and performed cabaret and performance art, drawing on an even earlier obsession with modern dance.

Claire Castell found Stagebridge storytelling classes in 2017, just after retiring, and has since performed her stories around the Bay Area. She likes to tell personal true stories, but she did a deep dive into the diaspora of Loup Garou tales from the Acadia area of Canada to Louisiana, and collected 19 folktales of the monster.

Melinda Ginne, Ph.D grew up in the San Fernando Valley, where her family migrated after several decades in Boyle Heights, the Jewish-Latino ghetto of East Los Angeles. Taco stands were kosher and the Shul was across the street from the Catholic Church. Her family celebrated religious holidays as Jews, but personal holidays such as birthdays, weddings, and funerals all had a Latin flavor.  

L. Abdul-Kenyatta is a bona-fide Renaissance Man. He is a regular contributor to the NPR show Snap Judgement, and he is currently working on his one-person show (Everything I ever needed to know I learned) Back in the Day. On February 13th- he will appear at Stage Werx Theater in the show- Big Shot Storyteller.

Brittany A. Kamerschen is a creative writer known for her poetry and prose within live performance. She has a B.A. degree in Creative Writing from S.F.S.U. She has performed in Bay Area musical theater. She is currently in the process of publishing her first book.
