2Ton Bridge is the musical persona of singer-songwriter and actor Alexander Wright, who took the name of the landmark connecting his childhood Maryland farm to the main road and the wider world. Similarly, his songs connect their down-to-earth characters – farmers, fishermen, migrants, prisoners – to society as a whole, bridging the gap with a passionate understanding of the struggle for personal dignity. Auni is a mesmerizing songstress from Los Angeles with a bit of an unusual folk band — violin, viola, and string bass. Her warm voice and charming melodies wend their way into listeners’ hearts and heads, offering a stunning kaleidoscope of style and nuance. Raised on Bach and The Beatles, she began writing chamber folk songs as a student in Paris, then returned to LA where she formed a small, bluegrass-inspired band and recorded her debut, self-titled EP. Her folk quartet’s live appeal is built on their vibrant onstage interaction, as well as Auni’s intricate arrangements. We’ll also hear from a couple of favorite Wine & Song guests, Australia’s Jordie Lane & Claire Reynolds.
