Longtime friends and collaborators, Susan Robbins and Michael Cicone have shared the stage in a wide array of musical contexts, including a shape-note chorus, medieval and Renaissance ensembles, an instrumental trio and a touring contradance band. Their twenty years of collective experience, combined with individual explorations of classical, world, traditional and contemporary folk music, have created a rich and eclectic pool from which they draw inspiration as an innovative and improvisatory duo. In live performance, in the studio, and as a basis for arrangement, improvisation integrates the sounds, rhythms and melodies they love into a unique musical expression.

In other artistic ventures, Michael Cicone brings his warm tenor voice to the lauded folk trio Kallet, Epstein and Cicone. An accomplished dancer and skilled instructor, he teaches English Country Dance across the United States. Susan Robbins coaches singers in the Boston area and leads song workshops throughout North America. She has brought her instrumental expertise to a world fusion band, has composed and performed for several film scores, and is the Artistic Director of the acclaimed world music ensemble, Libana.
