Deb Cavanaugh & Dandelion Wine: Open for Take-Out Virtual Concert Series
May 10, 2021 at 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and roots singer Deb Cavanaugh lives in the foothills of the Taconic Mountains, in upstate New York. She started making music as a toddler singing before she spoke and singing harmony and rounds by age 3. Her dad exposed her to Classical, Big Band and Jazz. As a teenager, while studying classical voice, she became enamored with blues, rock and Motown. While studying classical music, she was given the opportunity to sing Duke Ellington’s sacred music in a church choir directed by him. During the mid-70s, Deb met her future husband and hitchhiked with him across the country to San Francisco, jumping into the world of rock and roll. They formed the band General Eclectic. After moving back and forth from coast to coast, sometimes in a VW bus, they eventually found their way to upstate New York. After spending her next twenty years immersed in the folk music community, she now combines all of her musical influences writing and performing songs in a variety of styles.
She plays many genres, including rock and roll, jazz, blues, children’s songs, folk and more. She incorporates traditional American culture into her events with the mountain dulcimer and limberjack as well as making crankie rolls, another American tradition. Deb also teaches Music Together®, an early-education research-based program for families with young children.
They say that variety is the spice of life, and Deb sets out to prove this in her many endeavors.
