Music From the Purple House
I am a musician who, in addition to writing my own music, plays the traditional and early music of the British Isles and Italy. As a vocalist who also plays dulcimer, recorder, pennywhistle and harp, I have peformed in Medieval and Renaissance Festivals, including ten seasons at the New York Renaissance Faire; as well as Charity events, benefits, and First Nights. My previous bands were A Couple Of Note and The Broad Street Troubadours, with whom I've recorded two CDs. I am now soloing as "Una Cantante" and have played at the Cape May Renaissance Festival, The Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park in New York, and The Belmar Art Walk in Belmar NJ. In 2012, A Couple of Note, donated a performance to raise money for the Red Cross to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.
I have enjoyed being at the top of the chart of KCEG Radio, and the honor of being Artist of the Week. On November 29, 2015 I was a featured artist on the "Notes From New England" portion of "The Wimmin's Show" on KZUM radio, and was interviewed by Colette O'Connor.
This is the melody line of something I've been working on. It's in its earliest stage and I'm considering adding alto recorder, maybe harp, and possibly lyrics, in which case, naturally, I'll also add voice.
My friend, and excellent musician and composer, Scot Stoddard, flattered me by asking me to play harp, alto recorder, and sing on his "Expand" trilogy! What a fun project that was, and I would like to share it with you by inviting you to click on his logo!
