TESTIMONIALS

"Margaret and Kristoph’s performance at the San Leandro Public Library was wonderful and we had a fantastic turnout. Their repertoire is extremely impressive, covering Celtic, Medieval and Renaissance music. They interspersed their performance with discussions on their many instruments they used to bring the period and traditional music to life. Their beautiful period costumes contributed to an enriching experience. The audience was completely enthralled and even entranced during the entire performance. They are a delight to work with and are complete professionals." --Mary Lee Barr, MLS
Librarian, San Leandro Public Library
