Cantiga: Martha’s Dragon

June 1, 2011

Harpist Martha Gay, fiddler Malcolm Smith and flute and recorder specialist Bob Bielefeld joined forces at the Texas Renaissance Festival in the early 70’s with a common love for ancient melodies and a flair for jamming. Their passion proved a marvelous alchemy as they were joined in the 80’s by cellist Max Dyer and later by Chilean multi-instrumentalist Conrado Garcia. Founding member Malcolm Smith died in 1996 to be succeeded by Boston fiddlers Mark Caudill and Michelle Levy, gamba/lute player Alex Korolov, and most recently, Austin TX based fiddler Sick.


Cantiga is joined by drummers Ray Dillard, Nestor Prieto and most recently Jamal Mohamed for recordings and concerts.
