The father daughter duo of San & Emily Slomovits have been playing music together since Emily was a young child. San, along with his brother Laz, as the duo Gemini, have been a highly popular folk act throughout Michigan and the United States since 1973, and Emily began joining them on stage when she was just eight years old. Now 23, Emily is an accomplished violinist, having studied classical violin for more than a decade, and has also developed a lovely and unique singing style.
San and Emily’s concerts feature a wide range of traditional and contemporary folk, jazz and classical music. Their beautifully blended harmony vocals and exciting instrumental work breathe new life into a wide variety of American and international music, from folk to classical, klezmer to Broadway show tunes, traditional to contemporary. Audiences thrill to their warmth, humor and ease on stage. They released their first CD, “Innocent When You Dream” in 2013.
For many of their concerts, San and Emily are joined by bassist, Jacob Warren. Emily and Jacob have known each other since kindergarten and have played music together throughout their school years. Jacob graduated from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance, with a degree in bass performance, and is now pursuing his Masters Degree at the UM.
More information about San, Emily and Jacob, including bios and live concert videos is available at their website.
