Where in the World is Mara!

Mara is now home in North Carolina again, after a challenging and perfectly wonderful year at the Elphinstone Institute (University of Aberdeen) in Scotland, earning an MLitt degree in Ethnology and Folklore. I owe huge thanks to everyone who helped me with my trip and contributed to my GoFundMe campaign to help pay for travel and living expenses. You can read about my year in Aberdeen in my travel blog, which was a great way to document some of the amazing experiences I had. And there are lots of pictures!

In 3/4 Time

Copious Notes

A kaleidoscope of lyrical and lovely waltzes, new and old, for dancing or listening--beautifully played by Mara Shea on violin and Julie Gorka on piano, with Dean Herington on clarinet, Ted Ehrhard on violin, and Walt Robinson on recorder.

All the Pretty Horses

The Elftones

Celtic tunes and songs from Scotland, Ireland, England, France, and America, spanning emotions from lyrical to driving, tender to fiery. Fiddle, guitar, and vocal arrangements of mostly traditional tunes, invoking Celtic spirit and soul.

Naturally

The Elftones

The Elftones -- an energetic, fun, and lyrical fiddle-guitar duo that will make you want to dance, or just sit and listen and enjoy.
