“Even in the informal realm of a rehearsal space, Indrajit Banerjee resonates majesty.”
OPENING ACT Big Sur’s own:
LINK TO PODCAST
Hailing from a family of prodigious musicians in the Bengal region of India, Banerjee spent over 25 years studying the sitar at the feet of mentors including his grandfather Bankim Kumar Pal and uncle, Ravi Shankar pupil Kartick Kumar.
After achieving an A-grade certification, Banerjee has become a global entity, amassing a résumé that includes playing alongside Sting, and now, for the first time, performing in Big Sur on the edge of the continent.
TICKETS (limited) HERE!
Sitting on the side of the road

Quote from Carly Taylor’s article:
Miller is a powerful author to turn to in our periods of hopelessness, for he can breed joy where others find only nihilism. He sees “a world without hope but no despair.”
Stefan White and Magnus Torén sat down for a wonderful conversation (and a reunification after 31 years!)
You will hear Stefan’s beautiful voice telling stories about family, Australia, Big Sur, Austria and much more. Some of the White family we speak of are in photographs that Stefan provided to the right: Stefan, Dan, Pat, Emil.
We also touch on:
The Morgenrath family.
Robert Redford and Sonia Braga
A mail-order bride Mother
Living close to where Hitler grew up
Biking in central Europe
Sleeping with headhunters
Being better than Giacometti!
Dr Zeus….and, very important for Stefan, we spoke of his dedication and love for Prem Rawat.
Stefan White Interview
One man, one microphone, one violin. The inanimate become animate. Edwin is taming his unruly violin only to presently let it free onto, and into, a wild spin on Bach!
At a respectful distance away we are lucky to have this happen in the midst of our sheltering regime. Please click below for a link to a short sample of Bach for Cello on Violin!
Ever since I was five years old, I have been playing the violin. I grew up in the forest, on a little farm, about twenty minutes outside of a small city called Guelph.
What I think the current global fermata has done for many, is letting us reshape the way we think of many things, and to look back into our lives, and find that which truly gives comfort and solace. For me two of those things are music and nature. Now, when I think about playing music, and more than that – when I think about playing violin by myself, I inevitably turn to Bach at some point. Johann is my favorite composer of old. I truly believe he has much to offer to anyones imagination.
So, I end up in the Redwoods, with my violin, playing violin, in one of the most special building I know, full of books, and memories, called the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
I hope you enjoy.
WE NOW HAVE A BEAUTIFULLY SOUNDING PIANO!
A Steinway upright is now installed, tuned and ready for you to play, perform and record! (Acoustics in this room is legendary!)
The piano was donated to us by a generous family north of us and delivered by Howard Piano Moving.
Henry Miller loved playing the piano and his first wife Beatrice Sylvas Wickens was an accomplished pianist.
