Violinist/Fiddler Ed Caner has been labeled by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as, "One of the most versatile musicians on the planet." During the past 15 years, he has performed as a sideman for over 50 major acts, including Smokey Robinson, Page and Plant, Natalie Cole, Luciano Pavarotti, Mel Torme, Ray Price, and Leftover Salmon. He served as interim Concertmaster of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra and performed as section violinist with The Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Cleveland Ballet, and Cleveland Opera Orchestra. Ed has also performed over 750 shows as soloist with Michael Stanley, Wayne Newton (Las Vegas), The New Barleycorn (Ireland/USA), and the Broadway musical, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change (New York/Cleveland).
Joining Ed this month is Kent-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Ashley Brooke Toussant, who is known for her vocal range and sweet melodies. Folk DJ Jim Blum from 89.7WKSU says, "Her stories are full of wanderlust and make believe. She appears shy until she's in front of you singing-suddenly you find yourself all wrapped up in her magic. That's a good place to be."
Hines Hill Conference Center is located at 1403 W. Hines Hill Road in Peninsula. This is approximately one mile east of Riverview Road.
