Anne Bingham Goess trained as a classical violinist, discovered the joy of folk music 27 years ago at Lark music camp, and now plays regularly for Irish, English Country and Contra dancing in the Bay Area. She has sung with many choral and theater groups over the years, including as a soloist at First Presbyterian Church, Oakland, as a chorus member with Festival Opera, and as Associate Music Director for the Christmas Revels. Anne also delights in arranging for and accompanying British folk singer Erica Hockett with the band "Erica and Friends." Watch Anne and Tom Lindemuth performing a reel set in 2022.
Thomas Lindemuth Family lore claims Tom sang before he talked. He draws inspiration from various traditional sources from Celtic to Dixieland, playing a gamut of wind instruments from pennywhistle to tuba, as well as vocals and percussion. Tom has performed with California Revels, for the Bay Area English dance community, and currently sings and plays with the group "Erica and Friends." Tom enjoys composition, arranging, and music production, co-creating the album "Letters from Abroad," with Anne Bingham Goess in 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSZR32-t72I
