Madison singer-songwriter and guitarist Helen Avakian is the 2014 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion, and was voted Favorite Acoustic Act by Rhythm and News Magazine. She is also a recording artist, producer, and guitar instructor specializing in acoustic guitar music. Helen will be performing with Dave Irwin, a long time popular guitarist in Madison, who specializes in fingerstyle, Brazilian and jazz guitar styles.

They will perform a mix of original songs and instrumentals from folk to popular styles with a touch of Classical, Celtic, Reggae and Flamenco along the way.

Time for some indie pop emerging from the primordial ooze of the isthmus to weave tiny tales. It’s Mesozoic music for the masses. Tiny Dinosaur is an indie rock band of four females giving a warm embrace to folk, punk, and pop to tell you a story.


Warm, whimsical, and witty. Upbeat, yet pensive. And always euphoric...these are just some of the ways these women describe their music, but they find it harder to classify. Indie-rock it is. They’ve been places and they’re laughing at themselves quite a bit along the way. The tender, the subtle; the fanciful, the everyday.
