Rory Holbrook - Violinist
Rory Holbrook has been making music for more than twenty years. A well-travelled now-Oregonian, Rory lives currently with her husband and son in the Portland area, where, between being a wife and mom, she finds time to play for audiences all around the metro area.

Rory plays a variety of styles, including classical, Celtic and modern. She has even written some compositions of her own. Her interest in styles such as bluegrass and Celtic, along with a love of classical music, has given her playing a unique style. One of her favorite things to do is play improv and because of this she rarely plays things the same way twice. Reaching her audience with her music is always a joy. She is blessed to share her gift with all who want to listen. It is with much excitement and joy that she gets to share her craft with all those in attendance.

Ryan Walsh - Guitarist
After graduating from the University of Oregon, Ryan decided to follow the call of his true passion, the classical guitar. He packed his bags and bought a one-way ticket to Spain, home to a rich and ancient musical tradition, and birthplace of the guitar. After several years studying alongside the world’s finest and honing his technique and musicianship, he began to hear a different call—that of his own home, the great Pacific Northwest. Although he has now returned from Spain, his journey with the classical guitar is only beginning. He cherishes the opportunity to share the beautiful, mysterious, and intensely intimate music he cultivated during his years abroad with those here at home. He has performed widely both in the United States and Spain, and recently released his second album, "Resonancias Antiguas".
