More about the musicians

Andre Feriante

Award-winning, Segovia-trained guitarist and composer Andre Feriante has been sharing the gift of music with audiences around the world for nearly 40 years. Beginning with his first concert in Rome in 1979, he has introduced a sensual and contemporary sound to an otherwise traditional genre. His creative blend of classical, flamenco and Brazilian styles speaks to people from all walks of life.

Feriantes long career has taken him to hundreds of stages, including Seattles Benaroya Hall and The Triple Door, New York's Carnegie Hall, and many locations throughout Europe and Latin America. Feriante has released 14 albums, several of which have reached top 10 radio airplay charts. His CD Bohemian Boulevard won Best World Album.

Andres world view is one of hope, love, and empathy. He hopes the passionate and reflective qualities in his songs will bring listeners inward to discover the similarities among humans, creating more peace and ease in the world.

Steve Thoreson

Steve is a tenor of the highest caliber. Critics and aficionados alike compare his voice to that of Luciano Pavarotti. A natural talent from North Bend, Washington, Steve grew up winning every singing competition in his region and was sent by the Seattle Opera to study in Siena, Italy. His studies have taken him throughout Europe, including to the renowned Swedish Opera Singer, Actress and Teacher,Britt Bern.

Thoreson has performed extensively in Europe,in concert, on radio and television. His singing has taken him to twenty seven countries, performing in Cathedrals, Piazzas, Concert Halls and for Heads of state and Royalty. He was second-place winner on Sweden's Got Talent TV show (Talang) in 2011.He has performed at Seattle's Swedish Cultural Center,Kirkland Performance Center,Teatro ZinZanni's Mezzo Lunatico cabaret,and Benaroya Hall,and is a member of Illumi men's choir.

Mr. Thoreson also shares a lineage of American Indian Ancestry. His Mother is of the "Quinalt" tribe on the Pacific Ocean on the west coast of Washington State in America. When not singing you can find Steve carving Native Indian Art, drumming, and singing songs of Native tribes from his home town. Mr. Thoreson takes much joy and pride in blending his singing skills and his Indian heritage together. It is truly breath taking.

A powerhouse of Norwegian and Native American decent, Steve Thoreson is a major force to contend with in the world of Opera and the Arts.

Troy Chapman

Troy has a love of the guitar going back to age 14. He grew up in the environment of the Yellow Door Coffee House in Montreal Canada and it's constant stream of guitar players coming through the door. To that, he added a musical education in jazz studies including Concordia University, Montréal and The American Conservatory of Music, Chicago.
After 21 years in Chicago playing a wide variety of styles of music from big band jazz to some years indulging his desire to plug into an amplifier and play REALLY LOUD, Troy moved to the pacific northwest and Whidbey Island.
His career has included membership in the groups Billet-Deux, Pearl Django, The Troy Chapman Group, and The Hot Club of Troy. He has also been honored to play with some fabulous musicians including guitarists Bucky Pizzarelli and Martin Taylor, legendary jazz group The Manhattan Transfer, Gail Pettis and countless other brilliant musicians.
Based on Whidbey Island, WA, Troy can be found playing gypsy jazz with The Hot Club of Troy, modern jazz guitar with The Troy Chapman Group and Baroque Guitar with The Island Consort. And some great Choro as well.
He likes to play guitar.

Eric E. Concert at the Winery

Join us at the winery for highly Eric's second anticipated encore performance!

Eric E. is an incredibly talented musician and dynamic performer with a unique ability to engage his audience and make them feel personally involved. With only an acoustic guitar and a clear tenor voice,  he performs songs that are remembered and loved by listeners of all ages, as well as penetrating original numbers. Eric desires to communicate on a deep level, transparently sharing his spirituality, life experiences, hopes and fears, in a spontaneous, candid, and often humorous way that plants itself deeply in the memory of each listener.

He enjoys letting his listeners take a concert in whatever direction they wish, instantly adapting an evening’s playlist to the tastes and requests of that particular audience.  He engages and thrills audiences with his signature Pick-A-Year game, where he tells the audience to shout out a year and he plays a hit song from that year.  The variety, humor, participation and memories that ensue, make Eric beloved by fans of all ages. 

Audience’s have enjoyed Eric’s original songs, buying over 30,000 of his albums at performances. His fourth album, with Whitestone Records of Los Angeles, ”Lead Me To Life”, was released internationally, and it features special guests John Patitucci (Chick Corea Band), and Phil Keaggy. It received airplay across the U.S. and in Holland and Denmark.

Eric E. does not use drum machines or synthesized backup parts, just the pure unplugged sound of his voice and guitar, which listeners often comment “sounds like a whole band’.  Eric employs amazingly smooth looping and effects that leave an audience entranced.
