As a cuisine, South Carolina low country cooking achieves perfect balance between delicacy and richness. In Baltimore, Charleston restaurant is the place to experience the magic of delicate ingredients in deluxe combinations, like heads-on shrimp with smoky tasso ham and buttery grits. The ever-evolving menu is a sophisticated but deeply pleasurable board of fare, always skillfully executed and flawlessly served. Every course is worth lingering over, savoring the intricate flavors of, say, Charleston's incomparable shellfish bisque while anticipating the upcoming plate of pan-seared duck breast in a Burgundy reduction sauce. And the new pri[vegetarian] fixe menu allows you to create your own three- to eight-course meal from a series of small plates, so you can pick whatever dishes look best to you without being a slave to the whole appetizer/entrée hierarchy.

"The Set UP: Acoustic Guitar + Microphone.
Brief History: ashrf is a fusion of Middle Eastern & American cultures, merging Sudanese roots with his rock influence to craft an original and enjoyable sound. His music was labeled “Middle Eastern Alternative” by the Owings Mills Times.
He has performed since he was a young boy in Sudan, and began playing venues and events in the DC Tri-State area in 2003. He is always the one to call for original Songwriter Showcases, international festivals, and has been the featured artist at many musical events. Because of his simple set up, he is quick to begin on stage and easy on the ears.
His unique and captivating sound is always a crowd favorite. His many performances include the featured artist’s slot on the Fredrick County Public Access show called “Backstage Pass.” His cover of “Allergy” by ilyAIMY was played at a local college radio station in Tennessee. Poetic lyrics crafted into pentatonic scales provide the main ingredients for his music, and his falsetto is always the icing on his musical cake. All in all, he is an acoustic act not to be missed."
"Accomplished studio musician specializing in trumpet performance. With a resume reflecting influences of jazz, fusion, orchestral and military music styles, versatility is Altruist's strength. Performance is a personal forte, however, composing for commercials and utilizing midi based music is also an asset. Altruist is endeavoring to establish a new plateau for music performance and musician outlook and disposition.
A native of Maryland, specifically Harford County, most of Albert's technique was developed in the backdrop of quiet woods within a community called Harford's Landing. With windows raised as a "child of the horn", support from the community has always been "humbly" received.
Notable influences in Altruist's life include family,(Asher, Yezre'el, Neferah, and Yahnedibah. Innumerable school teachers, close friends, the musicianship of Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea, Hank Levy, Professor of Jazz (Towson University), Jim Murdza, the "Old Lady down the hall, and of course, the "upper one".
Altruist has been commissioned to perform in various venues on the east coast, including commercial recordings & is immediately available for recording, instruction and gig-work."

"Quote from Altruist"

Bill is a unique and accessible soloist. His music grooves the body and delights the mind. His vehicle of expression is the 8-string touch guitar - an instrument that allows multiple part compositions. Essentially, Bill's left hand plays bass and his right hand guitar.
"Straight forward, gimmick-free rock 'n roll... Coulter and his gang are a rock force to be reckoned with."--Music Monthly, July 2004.
The ideal mix of American Roots and rockin' Power Pop...

"There are quite a number of examples of bands and artists that have covered a Beatles album as a whole. Here’s a new addition to that category, being a classical guitar rendition of all the Sgt. Pepper songs, set in the same track listing as the original album. Instead of going for the easy way by picking the usual batch of guitar-friendly tunes, Croatia-born Krstic’s intention to try and re-interpret this classic Beatles album may be applauded with great enthusiasm. Although songs like Within You Without You or A Day In The Life are obvious choices to check on his talent and skills, his refined performances on all the tracks leave no doubt about that. He both ensures that all the original melodies remain quite well intact as well as takes in subtle melody snippets of his own, with versatile guitar playing - adding occasional Spanish flavours, an orchestral sound or a Third Man Theme-like sound in When I’m 64. Reportedly the first classical version of the Sgt. Pepper album – a hard act to follow?"
Beatles Unlimited Magazine, Issue 189, December 2006

Yes, a concept album about the 1860s!"
