Ricky Baker Cegelis, Ricky is Local singer songwriter that has performed solo and with a few different bands throughout the Fort Myers area. He is a excellent songwriter, guitar player and harmonica player.Ricky picked up a guitar at age 45 for something to do while recovering from foot surgery. His wife decided that if she was going to have to listen to him sing she’d better get him to take some vocal lessons. Having been bitten by the performing bug he started seeking out open mics in the Bar Harbor and Bangor, Maine area.

Ricky has collaborated with many musicians over the last couple decades.

Primarily a rhythm guitar player he’s hooked up with lead players that flesh out his songs.lues, and folk-rock. He writes primarily from the perspective of experience. He has written song ballads, b

He has opened shows for Fred Eaglesmith, David Raitt (Bonnie’s brother), and Muriel Anderson. He loves being a member of ACMA and is grateful for the many venues and musical styles they promote.

Karen Cohen. She began playing guitar as a teenager, finger picking Traditional Folk songs and Contemporary Acoustic Musicians of the 60’s and 70’s. The Blues Revival at that time was on her radar, but her interest in Delta Style and Pre-war Blues was not piqued until 2005. Role models for Woman Blues players were far and few between, but Karen became inspired by 2 modern day trailblazers; Bonnie Raitt and Rory Block.
More recently, Karen’s focus has turned to the Early Women of the Blues, interpreting their songs and bring their music to light.
Karen brings an authentic feel to their music, and like them, she adds her own authenticity to all the songs she writes and covers
