Cathy McManamon is a lifelong musician who has traveled a crooked path through liturgical music, elementary music education, and solo performing. She now enjoys playing primarily guitar and drums and performing with two bands (Random Fractions and Toyboat) while also collaborating with other outstanding musicians in the filk and pagan circuits. Having spent the last fifteen years researching, studying with vitkis, and working intimately with the Elder Futhark runes, Cathy brings the lore and wisdom of her Rune Songs project to this tour, performing some of the 24 songs written specifically about each of the runes and the stories they hold.
Leslie Hudson is what happens when Tori Amos and Loreena McKennitt swap set lists and folktales becomes character studies of the female psyche. A prolific songwriter with a powerhouse voice, Leslie has performed at venues in the US, Canada and Germany, and tours regularly across North America. Her dynamic range and passionate performances breathe new life into old stories, shining a spotlight on the paths women walk. Leslie brings her own vision of the unseen and the unknowable to this tour, including songs from her new and upcoming album, Keep Left at the Fork.
