Lucia Comnes

Lucia Comnes is an American singer, songwriter and violinist with a singular voice releasing acoustic music set in an atmospheric, captivating landscape. A San Francisco native with a rich background in performance, travel, and ethnomusicology, her focus has been Irish/Celtic, Balkan/Eastern European, and American folk music. She recently accompanied Joan Baez on violin for a series of concerts with French singer, Marianne Aya Omac.

She started her career as a vocalist with Kitka in 2002 – the Oakland-based women’s acappella vocal ensemble specializing in Balkan/Eastern European folk music. Simultaneously Lucia became active in the Irish music scene in Ireland and the U.S. She has studied with fiddle masters such as Martin Hayes, Kevin Burke and Oisín MacDiarmada, and performed with numerous artists, including Liam Ó Maonlaí (The Hothouse Flowers). She attended the Traditional Irish Music Program at University College, Cork, to study spoken Irish (Gaelic) and sean-nos, or ‘old-style,’ singing in 2005. Lucia and Her Rockin’ Irish Band were featured in the San Francisco Irish Music Festival in 2008, 2009, 2010, and starred in San Francisco’s St Patrick’s Day Festival Civic Center Plaza Concert in 2011 & 2013.
