Artist Bios:
Ron Ramsay attended the High School for the Performing Arts in Dallas Texas and the Manhattan School of Music in NYC, making NYC his home. Classically trained, Ron crossed over to the Broadway and Cabaret scene in NYC. His cabaret nightclub acts have sold out such rooms as the Algonquin, Feinstein’s, Town Hall, Lincoln Center’s Rose Room and Judy’s Chelsea as well as venues in such locales as London, Paris and Mykonos. The New York Post raves of past performances "unusually well stocked and thoughtful, high quality songs …always a sublime Songbook". Backstage and Theatermania.com “one of the most well rounded and extraordinary shows in recent memory”. Ron is also currently the Director of Music Programs at St. Ann’s Church in Lenox, MA.

Samantha Talora studied theater, voice and received a B.S. in Arts Administration from Wagner College in New York. She has travelled and performed in various venues throughout the United States, including the Isaac Stern Auditorium at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. Samantha has had the pleasure of performing as a solo artist and guest artist in such local venues as The Red Lion Inn, Canyon Ranch, Kimball Farms, The Berkshire Museum, Searles Castle, The Colonial Theater and BSC.

Charlie Tokarz plays saxophone, flute, and clarinet. He has been a pit band musician at the Colonial Theatre, Barrington Stage, Arena Stage, and school productions for many shows. He has performed for silent film at MassMoca and the Museum of the Moving Image with Donald Sosin. An interest in many styles of music has resulted in recordings of free improvisation for film with Vyz, Klezmer with Paul Green, and Kirtan with Ned Leavitt and Wah at Kripalu and the Omega Institute. He has done concerts in NYC for the American Tap Dance Foundation. He teaches at Hotchkiss School, Berkshire School, and the Steiner School.

Eileen Markland carries a wide range of experiences in fiddle and violin education and performance. She was appointed by the U.S. Department of State as an "American Cultural Specialist" and traveled the globe with Project Troubador, a non profit organization that builds cultural bridges through music and the arts. Her passion for music education is shared with students from age 3 to age 83. She is the Director and Co Founder of The Suzuki Music School of Troy and implemented Suzuki String Programs at Berkshire Music School and Montessori School of the Berkshires.
