She performs regularly as a solo artist, and with Aryeh Frankfurter, Patrick Ball, and the Windham Hill tours. She was recently named one of the 50 most inspiring women by Los Angeles Magazine.
Aryeh Frankfurter’s musical endeavors began at the age of three when he undertook classical training on the violin. His progress enabled him to study under various master violinists, including the concert master of the Chicago Symphony. He participated both as a violinist and violist in a series of chamber music ensembles under the tutelage of internationally renown cellist, Bonnie Hampton; pianist Nathan Schwartz; teachers at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music; and the late violinist Ann Crowden of the Crowden School of Music in Berkeley, CA.
Frankfurter’s musical development led him to explore various ethnic and international musical genres, particularly Celtic folk music. At the age of fifteen, he was introduced to the Celtic harp, an instrument which has become the focal point of his musical inspiration and expression. Over the years, he has taught himself to play a variety of instruments including electric violin, viola, cello, guitar, cittern, mandolin, lap dulcimer and hammered dulcimer, bowed and plucked psaltry, penny whistle, baroque flute, recorder, percussion and more recently the Swedish Nyckelharpa. He works full-time as both a performer and an audio engineer. He has 18 albums to his credit and two books. He tours as a solo artist, and with Lisa Lynne, Patrick Ball and the Windham Hill Winter Solstice Tours.
