Tania Opland & Mike Freeman

Tania Opland and Mike Freeman have been touring the world for more than a decade, from home bases thousands of miles apart, with a unique and eclectic mix of songs in several languages and acoustic music played on more instruments than any sane duo would travel with, including hammered dulcimer, guitar, recorders, cittern, ocarina, violin, Native American flute and percussion. They’ve been on the road together so long that although they married years ago, they’re still not sure which side of the Atlantic to call home.

"This duo is rather astonishing — she's from Alaska and he's from England, and between them they play hammered dulcimer, fiddle, guitar, recorder and whistle, excellent percussion, sing, and have a wonderful stage presence.
"Their repertoire is vast, and includes things like sing-alongs in Russian. Credits include numerous UK and US tours and seven albums (including collaborations with Anne McCaffrey)..."
-Whidbey Island Folk Festival, Washington, USA

"Unquestionably the most talented duo we have ever had at this club... I've never seen so much variety in a single set."
-The Song Loft, Milton Keynes, England
