Bon Iver is the nom-de-guerre of musician Justin Vernon. His album For Emma, Forever Ago was a critical and commercial hit, making him one of the most talked-about indie artists of 2008. For this performance he will be joined by Chris Rosenau of indie rock band Collection of Colonies of Bees, whom Justin calls his “guitar mentor.” Steve Kimockis best known as co-founder and guitarist for the San Francisco jazz/rock/funk band Zero and is a veteran when it comes to performing American roots music. He’s recorded and performed with many members of the Grateful Dead family (Jerry Garcia once hailed him as his favorite guitarist), Bruce Hornsby, Pete Sears and Hammond B3 master Melvin Seals. He currently records and tours with his band Crazy Engine.
