Performers For Hire

The Rosin Sisters

We are Barbara Panter-Connah, Ann Whitley-Singleton, and Jan Smith, three fiddlers who came together to explore our love of the roots music of Appalachia, as well as classic Country, Cajun, Gospel, Honky Tonk, and beyond. Besides our fiddles, Barbara and Ann play guitar and Jan plays banjo and we all sing and harmonize.. Contact via website at: www.rosinsisters.com.

band_photo_mrs_schmaltz (1)Mrs.Schmaltz and her Kosmopolitan Kleztet – Mrs. Schmaltz and her Kosmopolitan Kleztet offers up an eclectic blend of international music, with a particular focus on Yiddish gems, Klezmer classics, borscht belt show stoppers, gypsy jazz and Ladino treasures. Lively, festive, and hauntingly beautiful, this music, which is deeply rooted in Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean, has had a heavy influence on American popular and jazz music.

Mrs. Schmaltz can custom tailor her repertoire and performance to suit your particular programming or party needs. She can provide entertainment and musical accompaniment for any type of gathering – be it elegant or informal, intimate or grand – ranging from a duo, trio, quartet, or quintet to a six to eight piece dance or show band for larger parties and lavish affairs.

Pricing is flexible and negotiable, and is determined, in part, by the type of engagement, the day of the week, the time of day, the number of hours, the number of musicians, and your budget. Nancy Gaddy a/k/a Mrs. Schmaltz 404.210.7240; nancygaddy@yahoo.com.
