The DulciMates at the Burlington Hotel ~ Deborah "DJ" Hamouris & Buffalo bring mountain dulcimer & vocal duets to a casual evening of music at the historic Burlington Hotel. 2 sets of traditional & contemporary folk music with a broad definition of "folk"! A cozy room for listening, the Burlington will have a no-host wine bar for guests.
The DulciMates, Deborah "DJ" Hamouris and Buffalo (John Brownson), play traditional and traditionally-inspired music, including songs from their recordings (“Welcome to Annwfn” with Rick Hamouris; “The Chorus of Life” with Gaia’s Voice, and Moonrise: “Songs of Love, Magic and Other Mysteries” with Robin Dolan). They aim to create “dulcimers without borders”, stretching the limits of traditional mountain dulcimer playing. ~ The DulciMates recorded "The Green Man" in 2012, just after Deborah finished "Snapshots", a solo CD with jazz guitarist Mimi Fox. She directs Women & Song and teaches mountain dulcimer at the Freight & Salvage, while Buffalo has a private psychotherapy practice.
Deborah Hamouris, singer/songwriter ~ http://www.reverbnation.com/deborahdjhamouris/album/8363-snapshots ~ with Jeffrey Burr, guitar ~ http://jeffreyburrjazz.com/ ~ Deborah Hamouris (“DJ”) to her friends) is a singer-songwriter with a long performance and recording history in the Bay Area. Musically versatile, she performs as both a jazz vocalist and (on her mountain dulcimer) as a traditionally-influenced songsmith. ~ In 2012, Deborah released two CDs. “Snapshots” is mostly original songs inspired by her North Oakland neighborhood and her many years as part of Jazz Camp West. It was recorded with jazz guitarist Mimi Fox. “The Green Man” CD is by The DulciMates, a folk duo with her husband, Buffalo. That recording is a collection of holiday and other traditionally-inspired songs accompanied by mountain dulcimer. ~ Beth Baugh, singer/songwriter ~ https://soundcloud.com/beth-baugh ~ Beth has spent her life singing. As a child, she harmonized with her mother and sang in numerous choral groups. As an adult, she has sung with a Russian choir, a jazz trio and (once) Pete Seeger. She began writing her own songs as a teenager. She soon found the melding of melody and poetry irresistible. She writes to share her musical dreams and to tell the stories that happen to and around her. She also writes for, and with, children to capture their sense of wonder in a world that doesn't always pay enough attention to it. ~ An All-Oakland Presentation!
