For two decades, Michael G. Ronstadt, known to the Fiddling Cricket and Ugly Mug audience as a member of The Ronstadt Generations, has entertained audiences throughout North America on cello, guitar and voice. As a musician-composer conversant with a wide range of styles, he participates regularly in duo and trio situations with a diverse camp of young, innovative musician-songwriters. He is a much sought-after studio musician who has appeared on more than 150 albums in the last 15 years. He holds both a Master and Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance. His versatile talents have been tapped for concert and studio work by such artists as David Bromberg, Linda Ronstadt, Muriel Anderson and Craig Bickhardt.


“An exceptional musician-composer, Ronstadt creates a masterful canvas with genre-blending explorations on cello and guitar in complement to thought-provoking lyrics”

Serenity Fisher, of Serenity Fisher and the Cardboard Hearts, blends playful pop-rock with a Tim Burton-esque quirkiness. A wordsmith, Serenity entices stories into becoming songs with highly-visual lyrics, and dreamy melodies. As a vocalist she ranges from bluesy belt to sultry whisper. Her piano style is theatrical and passionate. Her music has been compared to Tori Amos.
