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 banner of vibration, a tapestry of sound. With the current lineup of Misti Bernard on voice, mandora, flute and guitar; Victoria Van Arnam on hammered Dulcimer; Robyn Buttery on violin; and Michael Gartner on vielle, Blue Muse creates a seamless blend of times and traditions, of heart and art.
