Where in the World is Mara!

Like most of the world, my husband and I are sheltering in place at home these days. Despite the current global chaos and anxiety, this springtime and summer in North Carolina have been gorgeous, and I am enjoying the solitude, trying to be productive while keeping myself and others safe.

 

Like other musicians and gig workers, bookings have completely evaporated from my calendar! I am grateful for your support -- thank you for downloading tracks and albums, and for your email notes. I have uploaded a few more recordings on the Music page, and have started posting more videos on the Links and Videos page. If you enjoy these, and would like to see more, let me know! I'm happy to add to the collection. 

Stay healthy and safe!

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.
