Welcome to WilderSong
and the music of Christopher Mario Bianco
Chris Bianco writes, records, and performs a wealth of sweet acoustic "natural folk” music that celebrates the living Earth and pays homage to the Spirit of the Wilderness. The music is an echo of the mountains and the rustle of a gentle breeze in the forest; it is the soulful call of the Seas, and it harmonizes human voice and guitar chords with the living song of Earth’s wilder places and inhabitants.
Chris is available for intimate solo performances for small to medium sized audiences in unique dining, entertainment, and private venues; as well as for larger-scale concert & festival events. Chris travels and performs throughout the west (and occasionally off-shore). We love fine wine tasting events, casual coffee houses; and very special private functions (especially intimate house concerts; patio, dock & deck parties, weddings & receptions)…anywhere “naturally acoustic folk” music is welcome.
Chris's live performances include selections from his EIGHT CD-album releases - Natural Causes, In Montana, The Wine Album, The Saga of Shipwreck Key, Blue Waters Call, Riding On A Rainbow, In The Mountains, and Earth Home, along with a wide selection of popular cover songs (if desired) by modern folk artists such as John Denver, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg and many more.
Chris's stage space needs are small and flexible: his equipment includes a small-footprint, top-of-the-line Yamaha 600i PA system suitable for small to medium venues indoors or out, and a couple of sweet-sounding Taylor guitars. Larger venues either provide the appropriate back-line, or we rent suitable PA equipment from local providers. We also frequently perform strictly acoustic performances (sans electricity and all amplification) in intimate living-room settings. See our Tech Rider & Stage Plot for details.
We are home-based in Montana's stunning Bitterroot Valley in the Summer and in North County San Diego in the Winter; though Chris travels and performs throughout the US, the Pacific Islands & Down-Under, Europe, and Canada year-round. We travel light and small. Visit our Events page to view a listing of recently played quality venues, and a link to upcoming dates & tour locations. Please visit the contact page to inquire regarding bookings and availability, or just call and we will be happy to chat with you and discuss everything over a virtual cup of coffee.
