Blue Muse performs 13th century Spanish and Portuguese music as well as more contemporary Spanish-flavored jazz. These haunting works are made relevant to our time by their interpretation in the context of improvisation and musical exploration. Individually drawing on a variety of sources, from classical and jazz to tribal and celtic, Blue Muse weaves the best of these into a tapestry of vibration, a banner of sound. With Misti Bernard on voice, hammered dulcimer and guitar; Billy Miller on soprano sax, silver, Irish and bamboo flutes; Tom Kersey on cello and Rachel Bowerman Deering on percussion, Blue Muse creates a seamless blend of times and traditions, of heart and art.
