"A year ago, at age 64, my daughter-in-law gave me my autoharp. It had been collecting dust in her attic. I've put in countless hours acquiring the body memory to be able to close my eyes, put my ear near the strings and play this beautiful instrument. I'm a full-time RVer and this is the perfect portable instrument for around the campfire." --C.B.M.
I have performed extensively throughout Colorado and the west for Parks, Libraries, Schools, Museums, Senior Centers, Summer Camps, Coffee Houses, Bookshops, Weddings and Receptions of all sorts. I present a mix of Contemporary and Traditional Folk, both Vocal and Instrumental. I'll tailor a performance to your venue and needs. I will bring all the equipment I need, and give your guests and unforgettable experience! The Autoharp, in the hands of a master player, is a unique and beautiful thing.

NATIVE FLUTE PERFORMANCES
I have performed for Venues and Audiences of all sizes, and have a presentation that grows or shrinks depending on length and available space. I can appear with flute only, with soft nature sounds underneath like water and rain, or can bring several other instruments. The Native Flute is a perfect sound for a Wedding, too! Just discuss your needs; I'll be happy to tailor your experience to your individual event! Click HERE to contact me about performing for your event.

"I have arthritis and the joints in my hands are quite damaged. Autoharp allowed me to play music again, without having to rely on others to accompany me. As a singer this has been very freeing. And now I can be part of the band instead of all alone up front." --L.H.D.
