Featuring Chris ‘Citrus’ Sauthoff and Dustin Adams. When George Harrison and The Beatles befriended Ravi Shankar, the traditional instrument of classical Indian music, the sitar, was embraced by American audiences. It is often heard in world music; its sympathetic tones marrying well with a wide range of musical genres. Chris ‘Citrus’ Sauthoff brings his signature style to the sitar – the soul of traditional Indian music. Dustin Adams adds in the heartbeat with the syncopated rhythm of the tabla. Enjoy the poetry and lyricism of these two perfectly paired instruments.
Their music has the flavor and intensity of traditional southern music, with a thread of contemporary sound and just a touch of classical/medieval thrown in for good measure. Join two-time Juno Award winning banjoist Jayme Stone and singer-mandolinist Rich Zimmerman for a fresh take on old-fashioned, bluegrass and new acoustic music.

Bonsai People the Vision of Muhammad Yunus from micro-credit to social business. What if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, and inequality? To some, it sounds impossible. But Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is doing exactly that. Yunus did his part to fight poverty by micro-lending $27 to 42 women, an effort which has now grown to 8 million women and 8 billion dollars. But he didn't stop there; whenever he sees a problem he starts a social business - showing the world that complex problems sometimes do have simple answers.
Armed with a camcorder, farmer-filmmaker-activist Severine von Tscharner Fleming spent two years crisscrossing America, meeting and mobilizing a network of revolutionary young farmers resettling the land.
