About the Musicians

Kerry Kean (lead guitar, fiddle, vocals) grew up in southern Ohio. His fascination with music led him to study piano technology. He opened a piano service and rebuilding business and served as Kent State University’s resident piano technician for 16 years. Over the years he has performed in various groups including folk trios, dance and show bands, as well as jazz ensembles. In recent years blues, ragtime, folk tunes and writing his own music have become his primary focus.

Bobby Patetta (rhythm guitar, harmonica, vocals) is a singer-songwriter specializing in blues, rock and folk, and has been performing and recording on guitar, harmonica and vocals for over 50 years. Born and raised in New Jersey where he started out singing and playing in rock bands, he has also worked extensively along the Gulf Coast of Florida, playing harmonica and washboard with Rosie O’Grady’s Dixieland Band in Pensacola, guitar and blues harp in the greater Tampa area and in Ohio since 1990. He is currently performing with the Hot Potatoes band, as well as making many solo appearances. He is also known for making a joyful noise on Sunday mornings at many Unity and UCC churches in the area.

Tim Akin (upright bass, vocals), based in Hudson, has played with many bands including The Legends Band, The Descendants, The Akin Family Band, The Reunion Band and Akin for Jazz. He can be seen regularly performing throughout Northeast Ohio and has been a staple at many ORMACO performances over the years. Tim studied music at The University of Akron and with many private teachers over the years.

Linear Wheel of 5ths

Submitted by Connie Stinnett

One day when we were off for weather, I sat around and looked at the relations between the sharps and flats. I was surprised to see so many mirrored patterns. Maybe someone else could see the wheel of 5ths more easily in this, too
