Tuba Skinny with special guests Giri and Uma Peters
The Blue Ridge Music Center presents a night of New Orleans Style Street and Swing Jazz and two of the best young people performing that old-timey mountain music.

Formed in in 2009, Tuba Skinny has steadily evolved from a loose collection of street musicians into a solid ensemble dedicated to bringing the traditional New Orleans sound to audiences around the world. Drawing on a wide range of musical influencesfrom spirituals to Depression-era blues, from ragtime to traditional jazztheir sound evokes the rich musical heritage of their New Orleans home. The band has gained a loyal following through their distinctive sound, their commitment to reviving long-lost songs, and their barnstorming live performances.

Somewhere at the intersection of old-time music, bluegrass, and Piedmont Blues, is the unique and amazing sound of acoustic musicians, Giri (age 15) and Uma Peters (age 12). These Indian-American siblings from Nashville, TN are award-winning multi-instrumentalists - Giri on fiddle, guitar, and mandolin, and Uma on clawhammer and gourd banjo. They have been electrifying audiences with their refreshing, soulful blend of music and songwriting. Although young in age, their musicianship and vocal harmonies showcase a level of creativity and originality well beyond their years. Their first album together, entitled Origins, released May 31, 2019. Giri and Uma have performed at festivals around country.

The new heart, face, and soul of old-time music is Giri and Uma Peters!  Abigail Washburn
So proud of this young lady, Uma Peters. Her and her brother were just featured on NPR music for their amazing musicianship. It has been an honor having her as a student....Girl can PLAY!  Rhiannon Giddens
