Folk singer-songwriter and guitarist MERLIN SNIDER was born in Joliet, Illinois and raised in Southern California. His songs blend all sorts of American roots music from folk and blues to rock, gospel and jazz. Bob Stane of the Coffee Gallery Backstage said Merlin “does all the right things on stage and is the genuine article when it comes to wit and humor . . . In other words, he delivers the real goods,”
“Merlin Snider is a craftsman,” wrote Wildy's World, “about as fine a songwriter and story teller as you’re likely to find.” One listener wrote that “his spiritual consciousness and diversity are embedded in everything he writes. To attend one of his concerts is to spend an evening running the gamut of emotions. He makes us look at human comedy and human tragedy, confront the elephants in the room.”
A few words about two of these players, Merlin's friends joining him on this night - KATIA MORAES is well known and beloved in the SoCal Brazilian and Latin Music community and beyond. We met through Art Trek, outside of music, and since then I've come to love her singing, dance, and spirit on stage. Her acoustic band, Brazilian Hearts, is a delight. TOM CORBETT is a string wizard & multi- instrumentalist. He kills it on mandolin and guitar, as if you didn't already know, and has played with "everyone"! He is an Album charting folk singer-songwriter & a Finalist at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
