Autumn greetings to our friends around the world.

The days are getting short. People all over the world gather with family and friends to gorge on a symbolic bounty of the harvest, even if we don't actually harvest anything. And then comes our favorite part: in the darkest part of the Winter, WE SING!

If you’re close enough, we hope you’ll join us at one of these concerts. If not - we hope you’ll find other music to enjoy. Perhaps our online CD store at has something you haven’t heard yet? And enjoy the season!

WINTER'S RETURN — A Celebration in Music
Fri. Nov 30 - HOODSPORT, WA
Fri. Dec 7 - MT VERNON, WA
Fri. Dec 14 - SUQUAMISH WA
Sat. Dec 22 - SEATTLE, WA

Celebrating Winter’s diverse festivities with hurdy-gurdy, hammered dulcimer, whistle, violin, recorder, guitar, drums, cittern, and songs that'll bring a bright spot to the darkest winter's day.

Four world touring musicians join forces in a detour from their usual fare to form a powerhouse acoustic quartet that makes music like no one else. Offering a stunning collection of songs and instrumental music with a seasonal flavor, Winter's Return brings a celebration of the season to the stage.

Felicia Dale (hurdy-gurdy, tinwhistle, violin)
William Pint (guitar, octave mandolin, cittern)
Tania Opland (5-string violin, hammered dulcimer, recorder, hurdy-gurdy)
Mike Freeman (guitar, percussion)

When they’re not playing as a quartet, Pint & Dale play music of the sea with consummate skill and high energy, while Opland & Freeman collect music from around the world which they serve up with cheek and style.
