Andy Reiner, an award-winning fiddler, composer and educator originally from Lexington, MA, began playing at age five with the Reiner Family Band. He has since developed his own style through creative, rhythmic melodies, and thoughtful fusing of world styles. Earning a BM in Violin Performance from Berklee College of Music in Boston launched Andy into a flurry of touring and teaching around the globe - includ
ing Heavy Metal with Devil in the Kitchen, Folk/Hip-Hop with FiddleFoxx, Swedish/Appalachian with Blue Moose and the Unbuttoned Zippers, Electronic/Celtic with Firecloud, and Bluegrass with The Earth Stringband, which toured Southeast Asia on the 2011 American Music Abroad tour for the State Department and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Andy currently tours as a solo artist and composes fiddle tunes, songs, new works, and arrangements for string orchestra. He teaches improvisation, composition and fiddle styles privately and at music camps across the US. Andy’s compositions have been performed by the Berklee World Strings at the Kennedy Center, the Berklee Performance Center, and national ASTA conventions.

One of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Anick is rapidly making a name for himself in the world of jazz violin and mandolin. In addition to leading his own ensemble and performing with the Rhythm Future Quartet, Anick has been touring and recording with Grammy award-winning Nashville guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson since 2008 when he was recruited while still a senior at Hartt Conservatory.

“Jason Anick’s sheer joy in playing is evident from the first track on Tipping Point. While tipping his hat to Stéphane Grappelli, Jason maintains his own distinct voice -- especially in his own compositions. Equally gifted as a musician and composer, Jason attracts new listeners to the violin and mandolin. Tipping Point is an uplifting and refreshing project deserving of countless repeated listenings.” — Regina Carter

“Jason Anick has given us some unique contemporary pieces for jazz mandolin. His playing has a wonderful clarity and creativity and his compositions offer a modern jazz approach to our instrument which is truly refreshing and inspired.” — Mike Marshall

Mali Obomsawin is an upright bassist from the woodlands of western Maine. She was raised on folk music and now studies jazz and classical music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Mali's main gig is playing in a trio with songstresses Ellie Buckland and Isa Burke, and she has also shared the stage with Stash Wyslouch of the Deadly Gentlemen, Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards, and the Western Den. Mali's goal as a bass player is to bridge the gaps between jazz, classical and folk music in the grooviest way possible. When not playing bass, she has been known to sing, mess around on various other stringed instruments, write her own songs, and dance clumsily.

Tickets $15 general admission / $10 Carriage House students
