NEWS In 2015, Kammeraderie (our violin and recorder duo) recorded six albums of Irish, Scottish, and English traditional tunes. Dorothy arranged these tunes for two instruments and has for several years made the sheet music available to fellow musicians. The CDs are available as digital downloads on CDBaby, Amazon, and iTunes, and Google Play. You can also enjoy this music by streaming.  This has been a labor of love, and we appreciate your support and enjoyment of  independent music!

"But that which did please me beyond anything in the whole world was the wind-musique when the angel comes down, which is so sweet that it ravished me, ....I remained all night transported, so as I could not believe that ever any music hath that real command over the soul of man as did this upon me...." from the Diary of Samuel Pepys (1668)

Celtic music for a children's Easter Party at an exclusive club in Indian Wells, performed in costume; kids, parents, and staff were equally delighted.

Italian Dinner music before a show. We provided the ambient Italian and Continental dinner music before the gala Under the Tuscan Stars show at Pala Casino and Resort.

Eastern European music combined with Christmas music at a lovely holiday celebration hosted by two world travelers.

Upbeat Celtic music for the wedding cocktail hour at the legendary Hotel Del Coronado. After the cocktail hour, the wedding party and guests processed to the banquet room, led by none other than Bert and Dorothy playing Mairi's Wedding.

For traditional weddings, concert black apparel is always appropriate. During warm California summers, we also like ivory dinner jacket/dress as an elegant alternative to concert black. If you desire us to appear in something more casual, just let us know! We're always happy  to accommodate your requests.
