|"Once upon a time there were two minstrels. One damsel fair of voice and full of spirit, and one dashing, strong (hey, odor isn't everything!) fellow who met through the fates and spun an acoustic act called "Merry Mischief"! (Which pretty much describes what we do....)
Stories told in song-of days of old~
When fortunes were won or lost by the turn of a blade or a card. When Knights were Bold! (and Ladies weren't too particular :)
Songs of pirates, sailors, lonely maidens, dragons, and days gone by... Hear the song that will take you to a time of far away castles and places of old. A time when Kings, Queens and Knights ruled the land, where beggars and thieves earned their way on the byways of merry olde England & Ireland. We also specialize in NYS Erie Canal Music and American Folk Songs. Songs of sailing on the Erie Canal and the mischief of the age of the "Wild and Wooly East". So! Sit ye down by the fire of our music, sung in two-part harmony, with a wink, a jest & a limerick or two...and rest ye awhile with a tear or a smile.
Merry Mischief is made up with the talents of Merlyn & Harry.........a fun loving couple with a lot of Mischief between them!
Merlyn's Alto voice delights the audience with a resonant full-bodied range that you want to sing along to, while Harry's Tenor voice amazes people with his true blend with Merlyn's voice. Together, their harmonies will delight you as they become one in spirit and voice. Our mission is to keep traditional music alive and kicking with our brand of silliness, humor and harmonies!
