Christy Snow
Christy Snow
Christy began performing professionally in 1989. Self-taught
on guitar and Native Flute, Christy's style is unique and a true extension of her soul. Voted one of Charlotte's best female vocalists and best singer/songwriter multiple times by Creative Loafing Magazine, her live shows carry her listeners away. Delivering percussive acoustic guitar, rich vocals, life affirming lyrics and a captivating stage presence, Christy sings about life, love and our connection to one another. She weaves in the enchanting and hypnotic Native Flute as well as her gift of humorous storytelling.


She has performed across the country, as well as in Canada,
Mexico and Turkey and has listeners across the globe due to
the worldwide distribution and airplay of her music. From
churches to bars, women's festivals to folk festivals, Christy shares her journey of authenticity through music and stories. Her 14 CD Discography includes; five acoustic
singer/songwriter CDs, three spiritual chant CDs, five
meditative Native Flute CDs and one guided meditation CD.

Christy latest acoustic CD, Free To Be, is an empowering
journey of freedom; free to love, free to marry, free to
experience spirituality without dogma and sexuality without
shame.

Her songwriting has been compared to Joni Mitchell and her
rich vocals to KD Lang, Natalie Merchant and Tracy Chapman.
Fun, dynamic, engaging, provocative and sensual, that is
Christy Snow.
Tony Eltora
Tony Eltora
Imagine Van Morrison hanging out with Paul Simon playing Muddy Waters songs, this is what Tony Eltora's music sounds like. Tony Eltora was born in Jessup Pennsylvania to a rather normal middle class Italian/Polish family before eventually moving to a suburb outside of Richmond, VA at the age of 10. As a young boy Eltora was what he would like to call a “creative introvert” spending most of his time with his head in the clouds. Shortly after moving to VA, a friend from the neighborhood was starting a band and needed a guitarist, so Tony persuaded his mother to go down to the local music/jewelry/Christian nicknack/I’ll sell anything to make a dollar store and buy him a guitar. From that point on, the guitar never left his side. Music was the perfect vehicle for Eltora to express himself creatively and emotionally.

Influenced by blues, rock and jazz music, Tony began writing and performing with local bands at clubs and festivals in the Richmond area. Known for his raw soulful playing and smooth guitar tone, Tony slowly began turning heads as people started to take notice of his talents. Wanting to further his knowledge of music, Tony left the small town life and moved to the city where he began going to school for music.

While living in Richmond, he started to fall prey to city lifestyles that you find in dark alley’s and began a downward spiral that landed him broke, dropping out of school and disenfranchised with playing music. Watching friends and family struggle with addiction and alcoholism and slowly becoming a statistic himself, he found himself virtually homeless. Later that year a chance opportunity to go to Africa came from a friend and Eltora decided to go. His life would suddenly take a drastic turn and Tony would make a move to Lenoir, NC. While in NC, Eltora began working as a counselor with troubled youth and rediscovering the joy’s of writing and playing music again. He would once again start playing and touring with a few local and regional bands and start teaching private music lessons at a local music store. Because of his love of teaching kids and believing in the therapeutic power of music, Tony helped found the Hickory Music Factory in 2012, a non profit organization in Hickory, NC with the mission to build futures through music by teaching, performance and community outreach.

Eltora has shared the stage with many national and regional musicians including, Tim Reynolds, Sam Bush, Keller Williams, George Porter Jr, Oteil Burbridge, and Acoustic Syndicate, to name a few. His debut CD “Between Love and Tragedy” showcases Eltora’s guitar playing along with his insightful and thought provoking lyrics. Telling stories of love, loss and rebirth, the CD highlights the influence that blues, jazz and world music has had on him.
