MUSIC: Stuart Rosh, Guitar and Vocals

A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Stuart Rosh was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His music has been praised in numerous publications including Global Rhythm, Jazz.com, MSN.com, East Bay Express, Detroit Weekly, Cincinnati City Beat, and the Village Voice. With his band, The Geniuses, his first CD made the Top 40 of the Americana Music Association's weekly chart for three weeks. He's made four nationally distributed albums and can be heard on Spotify and other major streaming platforms. Stuart Rosh is also known as Stuart Rojstaczer. Under that more complicated name, he has been a geophysics professor at Duke University, a librettist (Fordlandia, an opera premiered at Fort Worth Opera Frontiers), a National Science Foundation Young Investigator (when he was young), a Geological Society of America Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer, and a Friends of American Writers and National Jewish Book Award winner for his novel, The Mathematician's Shiva (Penguin). He lives with his wife of 40 years in the Bay Area.

Beth Holland is a longtime Bay Area radio announcer who you can hear on KQED as Beth “Huizenga.” Beth grew up in New Jersey and has followed her heart and the promise of a job all around this amazing planet, backpacking through Europe making lifelong radio nerd friends; spending 3 years broadcasting on Radio Bangkok in Thailand; and the last 25 years in the Bay Area. She is also the mother to two awesome daughters and a yoga practitioner and teacher. 

Victoria Podesta first performed as a solo artist in the late ‘80’s, writing and performing Far to Go at Life on the Water and The Marsh theatres in San Francisco.  Had she known that title would be prophetic, she probably would have chosen another.  Thirty years later, The Designated Daughter premiered at Three Cat Production’s 2017 SOLO Chicago Festival and had a sold-out Rising at The Marsh in 2018.

Joanne Green is thrilled to be performing at ‘Tell It On Tuesday.’ She has performed On and Off-Broadway and been a member of the renowned LA based Improvisation Troupe, ‘The Groundlings.’ She is the Drama Director at The Laurel School in SF and loves that her life is filled with kids, comedy and creativity! This piece is dedicated to her daughter, Olivia.

Wayne Harris is an award winning solo performer, writer, educator, curriculum innovator and musician. A gifted artist with wide ranging interests, he has accumulated an impressive body of work over the years that includes 7 full length plays, presentations for schools, directing and designing for pageantry groups as well as various musical projects.
