Singer/songwriter Martha Gallagher is an enigma that defies musical pigeon-holes. Her original songs glide in the blink of an eye from wailing blues to Latin grooves to Classical inspirations, from swingin’ jazz to vibrant contemporary folk. Her chameleon-like voice ranges from smokin’ hot to achingly tender, and everything in between. “Martha Gallagher is Janis Joplin-Joan Baez-Jean Redpath all rolled into one!” raves Todd Moe of North Country Public Radio. “Her music lifts up the spirit and reminds us why we’re here.”

“Alfredo Rolando Ortiz is a superb harpist and exciting artist,” writes Susann McDonald, former head of harp at the Julliard School and former Artistic Director of the World Harp Congress. “His performances feature strong vibrant rhythms, marvelous dynamic contrasts, stylistic verve, and profound sensitivity.”
