The Musers are Sonoma County’s “free-range” folk quartet: 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 and mandolin. Their sister-like harmonies and award-winning songs hit all the roots genres including, bluegrass, swing, blues, Appalachian, and Irish. With thoughtful songwriting and dynamic arrangements, this band of merrymakers delivers high-energy performances of their original work along with disco and funk covers. Their multi-instrumental chops, and Leslie's experience with traditional ethnic music and dance combine to create a variety of sounds that set them apart from many other singer-songwriter outfits. It is no wonder they are beloved by their Bay Area home audiences. The group's 4th recording “Beautiful Mysteries” arrived in April of 2022.
