Music and Art
From the Purple House
From the Purple House, I'll share with you my enchanted world of Music and Art.
This is the official website for all my creative endeavours.
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 performed 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 been 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.
Songs for the Sea
I am so proud to have been asked to contribute a couple of my poems to this wonderful group of artists who are working for an excellent cause!
" Ukulele Sirens from all around the world, unite their voices to create a common album dedicated to the ocean and the wonders of nature.
Our goal is to inspire: with music, art, poetry, photography and more. We hope to inspire the world to care about our waters, about the oceans and our beautiful blue planet."
All the profits of this album are given to different organisation to help protect the ocean (marine mamal association, coral.org, 1% for the planet)!
You can find the album on their website, Songs for the Sea!
