Violinist and composer, Jenny Scheinman, possesses a unique and rare ability to play any style of music. Whether it's classical, folk, rock, or jazz or singing any of the songs she's written, Jenny frequently collaborates with musicians such as Bill Frisell, Ani Difranco, and Nels Cline.

The music of legendary and influential American composer, Julia Wolfe, has been described by the Wall Street Journal as: "long inhabiting a terrain of its own, a place where classical forms are recharged by the repetitive patters of minimalism and the driving energy of rock."

She, along with composers Michael Gordon and David Lang, formed the Bang on a Can organization in 1987, which will be in residence at this year's Big Ears Festival, which takes place in various venues throughout downtown Knoxville, March 22-25.
