Three dynamic voices blended in splendid ancient and modern harmonies that will lift your spirit, excite your senses and warm your heart. They sing ballads, folk songs, Medieval, Irish Traditional music, love songs, country and gospel songs including themes of social justice to the accompaniment of guitars, banjo, dulcimer, bouzouki, dumbec, spoon, castanets and lots of percussion instruments including washboard. They met at Swing The Teapot Irish Pub in Floral park where they were singing Irish music for St. Patrick’s day they knew right then and there they would be a trio. There was instant magic, harmony and camaraderie. Marie plays just about every string and percussion instrument there is (guitar, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, Irish Bouzouki, dumbec, bones and spoons) and sings British and American folksongs and Jewish music. Candice (Candy) Baranello is a member of the Long Island group Wild Ginger. She plays dulcimer, washboard, and bodhran and sings traditional, Old Timey, classical and gospel. Lorraine is a member of the Huntington Choral Society, plays guitar and flamenco castanets, dance board and sings in a beautiful alto. They have a double CD Mountain Maidens.
Afternoon T.E.A. is a free program for seniors featuring live entertainment, lectures, classic films and more!
