Steve & Erin Mae Gratitude Concert 2021-11-14 04:00 PM EST
"Gratitude is the perfect antidote for anxiety and fear. One of the things we are most grateful for is Music, which has been the way we have become friends and musical partners, and it gave us ways to connect even across big distances in the pandemic. We have both been buoyed and fed by the riches of handmade music passed down over decades and centuries even as we are inspired to create new melodies. We are also grateful for the electronic tools of transmission and connect like OCT and Zoom that have allowed us to continue to connect and share and celebrate with the music which embodies our hope."
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.
