Steve & Erin Mae

Steve Eulberg and Erin Mae Lewis are accomplished performers and music educators who play an active role in sharing Americana folk music with audiences of all ages.
Performing across the US, the duo has delighted audiences in participatory musical celebrations.
Both are prize winners in the National Mountain Dulcimer contest at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas and both are also cancer survivors for whom music has been a source of healing and a path to wholeness. In their most recent pre-pandemic tour they provided online pop-up rest-stop concerts in their drive across the middle of the USA.

Erin Mae focuses on the chromatic and diatonic mountain dulcimers. Steve adds dulci-bro (resonator dulcimer), hammered dulcimer and guitar to his mountain dulcimer stable of instruments. They mine and polish the treasures of American folk music as well as creating new treasures of original songs and tunes.

Jody Marshall and Jim Queen

Homepage:
https://www.jodymarshall.net

Jody Marshall was a founding member of the popular folk trios, Ironweed and MoonFire. Enchanted by the sound and visual appeal of the hammered dulcimer, she developed a passion for the instrument and was soon playing everything from traditional jigs and reels to Mozart, the Beatles, and beyond. Her performance credits include Wolf Trap, the Kennedy Center, and the White House.

Jim Queen is a 30-year veteran performer with the Air Force Band. He has performed worldwide and in almost every state, and has played for presidents, heads of state, and luminaries in every field. He has played just about every fiddle style in the book, but has a particular love for Celtic and old-time fiddle tunes. Together, Jody and Jim serve up plenty of toe-tapping fun with both traditional and contemporary music on hammered dulcimer, fiddle, piano, guitar, vocals, and whatever else they feel like tossing into the mix!

Ben Deschamps

Ben – yes, that’s AdminBen for those of you who hang out in the chat at OCT events – has been a composer and performer since his early teens. He combines a Renaissance approach to life (in addition to performing music, he coded OnlineConcertThing.com as well as several other artists’ websites, and co-runs Amphis Music, a Canadian independent record label) with a dry wit.

His compositions with Heather Dale have become internet-famous and most people who know of him do so because of his association with the Mordred’s Lullaby singer, but he has performed in scores of ensembles, from space rock to bluegrass to orchestras and string quartets.

His current musical interests revolve around ambient, Celtic and folk music, attempting to synthesise something new out of old materials.
