MAIN STAGE SUNDAY
Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet playing music that, founder Javier Jiménez explains, “is inspired by the places we come from and the places we have lived, those that have come before us, and the nomadic Gypsy spirit.

OUR MAIN STAGE EMCEE:
Johannes Mager has been our festival emcee for many years. We first saw Johannes as the tuba player in the hilarious comedy/musical group: The Brass Band. Being a musician and performer for most of his life, he has also been the Music Director for many different shows and events. For the past eleven years he performed as the Jester in the Bracebridge Dinner at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, and for the past three years he was also the show’s Musical Director. He stepped down from the role last year and is now the new Musical Director of the Circus Center in San Francisco. He will also be teaching aspiring clowns how to incorporate music into their clowning. He always brings his own style of hilarity to our festival.
