Musical Performance by
Everyone is invited! No charge!
Natasha Coffing is a multi-instrumentalist, whose passion for music first started on the harp at age five and quickly moved on to include the violin (or fiddle—she doesn’t discriminate), and eventually the piano and vocals. Early on she found a particular love for Celtic music and for over 20 years has had the privilege of sharing her joy of music with raptured audiences, varying from prominent festivals, fairs, house concerts, church concerts, theatre productions, and more. With opportunities to learn from the instruction of renowned fiddlers such as Louis Schryer (four-time Masters Fiddle champion) and Winifred Horan of Solas, she has a well-rounded and unique playing style that brings out the heart and soul of the music she plays. Whether it’s some toe tapping, sparkling jigs and reels, or beautiful and soulful ballads and airs, she brings her audience with her on a beautiful musical journey.
Please bring a sweet or salty snack to share!
