Ivory&GoldŽ is a musical ensemble celebrating the greatest examples of American jazz, ragtime, Broadway and Gospel hits. The group consists of Anne Barnhart on flute, Jeff Barnhart on piano and vocals, and Danny Coots on percussion and drums (Danny will not be at the 2012 festival). Ivory&GoldŽ has played to packed houses on 5 of the 7 continents, excluding Antarctica and Australia (the latter will be conquered in November, 2009!). This ensemble is busier then ever with concert, festival, and private home appearances scheduled into 2010. The versatility of the group makes it enjoyable to all ages and in all settings, from an intimate 20 person gathering to a 2000+ patron event.

In addition to exciting events on land, Ivory&GoldŽ has played at sea on prestigious cruises with, among others, the Regent and Crystal Cruise lines. Their cruise appearances are sponsored exclusively by the entertainment agency Jazzdagen Tours (www.jazzdagen.com).

Ivory&GoldŽ was born in 2001, first carving out a reputation as a talented husband-and-wife team. As a duo, IvoIvory&GoldŽ boasts 6 recordings: 2 ragtime CDs, an all-Broadway ballad recording, a collection of love songs and a Christmas CD. While still appearing as a duo, Ivory&GoldŽ is enjoying great feedback from its trio appearances. Trio recordings now number three, with a fourth one due to be released in June, 2009.
