Pleasant Bud & Friends -
with Stuart Kabak and Jean Bratman
"Stuart has a unique way of viewing the word and translates it well into song. Kabak's subject matter is pretty heavy though sometimes a topic as simple as performing to an empty house ('Play for Me') can serve as a breath of fresh air. He has won three 'Outstanding Achievement' awards from the GASC and four honor awards over the past 10 years. Was one of the winners of the Los Angeles International Festival of New Music and one of the finalists of the South Florida Folk Fest. He's been a five-time finalist, one time winner of the Town Crier Cafe's performance contest; five of his songs have been recorded to Fast Folk and one of them was used in the Fox TV show, 'Bonez.'"
"Singer-songwriter Jean Bratman connects deeply with audiences. Smart lyrics and satisfying melodies draw us in with her expressive voice and knack for storytelling. She has opened for Richie Havens, Steve Forbert, and Richard Shindell, among others, and showcased at national festivals such as Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mountain Folks and Falcon Ridge. Her debut CD, Imperfect World, with original music melding folk, pop and blues, received radio airplay across the U.S and Europe. Like Stuart, Bratman has won several impressive awards too."
Pleasant Bud is astounded that all these really great writers and players agree to share the stage with him.
