Shape of ME Based in Cornish, ME

Orkney (Scotland) born fiddler Louise Bichan and Indiana (USA) mandolinist Ethan Setiawan present a collaboration and meeting of their musical worlds in Hildaland. A path steeped in the fiddle traditions of their respective sides of the Atlantic, the journey taken wends through Scottish, oldtime, and Swedish inspired music intertwined with contemporary compositions. Bichan’s fiddle is a melodic foil to Setiawan’s counterpoint and harmonic depth, and the two weave in and out seamlessly.

Shape of VT Based in Bradford, VT

I define Whole Voice as the full, Real expression of whatever we need to share in the world: speaking, singing, songwriting, music production, filmmaking, drawing, painting, poetry, dancing, activism, blogging, community service... and all the rest of the infinite possibilitiesAs a neurodivergent, pansexual femme from white Suburbia, my Whole Voice activation has been hard fought and won-- mostly through battles with myself. Through sound vibration and creative expression I'm reclaiming parts of my soul from all the bizarre cultural territories to which I outsourced them in the first place.
