Gayle & Bob
"Singer/songwriters Gayle Anderson Gram and Bob Gram are a well-seasoned, artistically-polished folk duo. Their voices blend perfectly, and their sensitive guitar accompaniments are thoughtful, interesting, and balanced. Anderson-Gram achieves a style of communication with the audience that is completely natural, and their clever lyrics and wit add to a very satisfying entertainment experience."
Music At Noon
"Anderson-Gram is a wonderful husband and wife duo who play a delightfully easy going blend of folk, country and bluegrass.
Gayle has a fine folk voice, strong, honest, and a little bit sweet. Bob provides nicely understated baritone harmonies. He can also take a turn at lead vocals and he has a rugged smoky quality that fits well on the songs he sings.
So, we've got two strong singers that work well together and a relaxed, entertaining musical style. Now the only question is how good are the songs. Well, they're pretty darn good too...all of them are nicely constructed clear pictures of everyday life.
Gayle Anderson-Gram and Bob Gram have been playing together since 1992. They have been married since 1997. It shows. Everything fits so well together.” ~Jam Music Magazine

Joshua was born and raised in the Calabrese community in Melbourne, Australia. His parents were from small villages just a few kilometres apart in the La Sila Mountains and Joshua was raised in the rich culinary traditions of their native Calabria. He grew up following the seasonal round of home food making: bottling all the tomatoes needed for the ensuing year; preserving olives; preparing regional sauces; and making traditional cheeses, salami, prosciuto, capicollo, pancetta, and nduja. His culinary expertise has been honed through observing old world cooking in his large extended family. He frequently cooked for large gatherings and his Nonna frequently says: “si cucina tiu mediu di mia,” which translates as, “your cooking is better than mine,” in Calabrese dialect. His home-made pastas, gnocchi, and sauces are especially fine.
Joshua is happy to have recently made his home in Point Reyes. Currently finishing his dissertation on traditional Roman ethics during the reign of Augustus, he will be starting at the Culinary Institute in Santa Rosa in January. He is also an accomplished carpenter and builder.
For his demonstration, Joshua will be making Mafalde pasta fatta a mano con pomodori freschi e verdure (handmade Mafalde pasta with fresh tomatoes and greens).
