Loren Barrigar started playing guitar when he was only four years old, and by the time he was six, played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

Loren’s finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER”, “The Young and The Restless” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar sensation. He has also recorded with Multiple Grammy winner and legendary producer Lloyd Maines.

In 2010, Loren made a guest appearance at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society {CAAS} in Nashville with his pickin’ pal from New Zealand, Mark Mazengarb. His solo concerts include favorite songs from seven decades, as well as his originals all featuring exciting guitar work and memorable vocal stylings.

Dusty Pas’cal is a husband, father to five children, and co-owner of his family’s company, Skaneateles-based D.B. Pas’cal Chimney and Roofing. He’s considered by many to be one of the top singer/songwriters in the Central New York region.

Dusty said that since he first picked up a guitar at age 13, he’s been a firm believer in the purity of his music. ““Early on, I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson and Jim Croce, because that’s who my dad listened to,” he said. “But actually, I was most influenced by my dad, who’s a songwriter himself.”

“Lonesome,””is a heartbreaking ballad that includes lyrics written by Dusty’s father. “My dad came to one of my shows, and I could see him just sitting there writing something,” he recalled. Dusty’s dad was in fact writing a poem about a friend of his who was on death’s doorstep, so Dusty set the poem, without changing a single word, to music. “I know my dad so well, it just flowed out naturally.”

His three studio albums, Home (2006), More (2008), and Human Heart (2012) have garnered attention in Central New York and across the nation; several tracks have been featured on local radio stations and internationally on XM Satellite Radio. Dusty will move you from one end of music’s emotional spectrum to the other – and it will be a ride you’ll want to take again and again.
