Grown from many generations of musicians, Eli Beingessner is a Columbia Valley hardy perennial. Soon after he appeared at our first Festival in 2012, Eli won the Steamboat Mountain Music Bursary as a wee lad of seventeen. He’s still in a musical growth spurt – developing his fast and fabulous guitar style, with his dad Marty as his greatest teacher, mentor, fan, and friend. Eli’s Band includes his parents Marty and Sandra, and well known Spilli drummer David Shaw. Their wide-ranging repertoire includes original compositions. We’re proud to present our homegrown sensation, and proud to have been part of his early musical career.
