Community is what makes Ethan Setiawan tick. Music can take on many faces, and for the Indiana-born, Boston-based musician and mandolinist, that face is creative collaboration with others. For Setiawan, the passion lies in the synergy that happens when a group of unique individuals come together. The combination of vulnerability, courage, and openness that collaboration requires is intoxicating. This search for the next border and the experiences that create this space is central to Setiawan's work. ​While first and foremost an acoustic mandolin player, Setiawan also performs on mandocello and electric mandolin. He won the 2014 National Mandolin Championship, performed on NPR syndicate A Prairie Home Companion in 2015, and participated in the Savannah Music Festival’s Acoustic Music Seminar in 2015 and 2016. Setiawan has performed at venues such as Club Passim, Red Wing Roots Music Festival, Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Walnut Valley Festival, and the Savannah Music Festival. These days, you can find him dividing his time between Boston, where he attends Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, and his home community of Goshen, Indiana. He can be seen performing with OctoPladd, the Leafless, Mutual Kumquat, Sadie Gustafson-Zook, and Fugue Mill.

Inga Maria is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Iceland residing in LA where she is working on her debut EP, set to be released this May, full of music for you to dance to. Inga started out in Iceland at her local music school where she played the flute. Over the years she put the flute down and picked up the guitar instead. After having gigged all over her hometown, Inga decided it was time to take her love for music one step further by applying to Berklee College of Music. Now, after having finished Berklee, Inga has grown immensely as a musician, which she shows best in her writing and performing. With years of musical training, Inga offers a great approach to music-making, combining the knowledge with the passion, adding a hint of the Icelandic "it" factor, all making up a fresh new sound that she is very excited to share with everyone.
