His refined accompaniment can be heard on recordings by artists such as Katie McNally, Brendan Carey Block, Pesky J. Nixon, Rebecca Wudarski and others. He tours as a member of the inter-continental Scottish trio Cantrip, as well as alongside fine musicians such as Will Woodson, Ryan McKasson, Connor Garvey, Andrea Beaton and others. Eric's debut solo release "Rove" is a combination album of mandolin/guitar duets alongside guitarist Bethany Waickman and a collection of traditional ballads, self-accompanied. Eric is a well known instructor, having spent five years on staff at the Club Passim School of Music in Cambridge MA, teaching privately and annually at summer camps such as Maine Fiddle Camp.


Elise Leavy is a singer and songwriter from the the north of California where the hills are green and the lakes are clean. Coming from a background of largely Beatles, she began writing songs at the age of 8 and has since began her endeavor to bring back the accordion to the folk world, through her own songs, pulling from the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and other songwriters.
