With an ensemble featuring hammered dulcimer, guitar, violin, cittern, Native American flute, and percussion, they weave a tapestry of sound rooted in rhythmic traditions from Siberia to Morocco.

Since their serendipitous meeting in England in 1994, Tania and Mike have embarked on a remarkable musical odyssey. For over two decades, they’ve enraptured audiences worldwide with their exuberant melodies and captivating narratives.

Their collaborative spirit extends beyond their own performances, as they’ve lent their talents to numerous albums by esteemed artists such as William Pint and Felicia Dale, Artisan, Hilary Spencer, Linda Waterfall, Peg Loughran, and Alicia Healey, leaving an indelible mark on the folk music scene in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, and Britain. Experience the magic of Tania and Mike as they invite you on a musical voyage transcending borders, languages, and traditions, leaving you spellbound with their harmonious blend of cultures and stories.
