Edie O'HaraSinger, songwriter and guitarist Edie OHara showcases material from her forthcoming, second CD with bandmates Steven Gorman on bass and well-known producer/performer Johnny Harper on lead guitar. Edie is an excellent songwriter and a wonderful singer whose voice has drawn comparisons with Emmylou Harris and Joan Baez.
Musically her songs range from gentle, folk lyrics to high-stepping rockers and salty blues. Some are soul-searching explorations of difficult relationships, childhood experiences, and family ties. Others are hopeful, uplifting affirmations of the human spirit. On some songs, she takes on troubling social issues which we all face today. And occasionally, she can be downright hilarious! The total effect of hearing all these sides of her art in one performance is exhilarating. An Edie OHara show is one you wont forget.

Living in the Bay Area for over 5 years, Ol Bum regularly turns up at Open Mics in the area and surprises audiences with a unique sound and original songs that are often humorous and occasionally poignant. Bum now plays with back-up by The Tune Wranglers; Marc Theobald on fiddle and harmonica and Ken Sailors on electric bass.
Mr. Bum Wagler comes from the heart and soul of all the little buckaroos that wanted to grow up and be Roy Rogers. Took 50 years from that first dream to steppin out on the stage in cowboy boots and Skully shirt, but it was worth the wait. All those years of livin go into each and every one of Ol Bums tunes, infusin them with laughter and tears, tellin stories that are unique, yet in a way, belong to everyone.
Mr. Bum Wagler believes that life should be full of passion, and mostly happy, and that if you cant laugh at yourself, then there aint much funny in the world. And if you can laugh, and cry and hoot and holler, well then...aint that what bein alives all about?
