Long Bio

The Musers are Sonoma County’s “free-range” folk. Made up of Anita Bear Sandwina on banjolin, fiddle, mandolin,  guitar, and harmonica; Megan McLaughlin on guitar and mandolin;  Tom Kuhn on bass; and Leslie Jackson on cajón. Anita and Megan's sister-like harmonies and award-winning songs cover a broad range of musical styles. Their subject matter is grounded in reverence for the earth and life.  When the Musers aren't playing you will find them harvesting vegetables from their garden, adventuring on bikes, swimming in wild water, or volunteering with a local tutoring service. Their multi-instrumental chops along with Leslie's lifetime of experience with traditional ethnic music and dance create a wide variety of sounds that sets them apart from many other singer-songwriter outfits. This band of merrymakers delivers high-energy performances of their original bluegrass, swing, blues, Appalachian, and Irish, as well as, Disco, and Funk covers. It is no wonder they are beloved by their Bay Area home audiences. The group has 4 recordings out on all the streaming services.  “Beautiful Mysteries”, their 4th full-length record came out in April 2022.
